George Flooks, Chief Operating Officer, Fitness First Middle East, said: “At Fitness First Swimming Academy, we prioritise the grasping ability, as well as the growth and development needs of different age groups to ensure that the sport becomes a way of life for the individual. Designed for all ages and ability levels, the academy will provide a comfortable and stimulating environment to enable individuals achieve their swimming goals, whether its introducing their baby to the water, teaching their child to swim, or learning to swim and improve their swimming ability. We are confident this added incentive from Fitness First will motivate more members to focus on their personal and family well-being!”
Swimming as a sport demands and develops a degree of discipline that is useful in all aspects of life. In addition, many experts agree that swimming is the very best form of physical exercise. These swimming programmes aim to provide a nurturing environment to enable each swimmer to achieve their potential by pushing the parameters of their comfort zone and stimulating continuous progress and achievement.
