Fear of the water
We enjoy training beginners, including people with phobias of the water. It is tremendously rewarding to see them grow in confidence and ability. We have also trained children and young people who want to increase their prowess in school and club teams for swimming and water polo, progressing to elite swimmers at university, county, national and international level.
Swimming for injury recovery
The advantages of swimming especially apply after an injury. Acquiring skills in swimming will allow you to stay really fit and develop your stroke without fearing further injury. It will aid your recovery and allow you to get back to full health as soon as possible. Swimming is perfect for rehabilitation as it is non-impact and works the entire body and cardiovascular system. Some clients actually finish their rehab programme fitter than before they were injured.
Swimming for weight loss
Also swimming is a perfect exercise if you want to lose weight. To be effective in the long term, fat loss needs to be accompanied by exercise. Gyms are not for everyone, but nearly everyone can learn to swim effectively at any stage of their life. You will get enormous advantages from it.
At NL Wellness we will be pleased to teach you effective swimming techniques in all or any of the strokes of your choice. We will help you to improve your body position, making you more streamlined in the water, and develop your speed and stamina. We will show you how to turn effectively and quickly. Our aim will be to make you a polished competent swimmer both in the pool and, if you wish, in the open water. Our swimming coaches can also give you nutritional advice which will be fine-tuned to what you want to achieve.
