Kennedy Fitness: A Jefferson Health Affiliate Offers Summer Swim Lessons for Children and Adults


Cherry Hill, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/08/2018 -- This summer, Kennedy Fitness: A Jefferson Health Affiliate, will offer group, private, and semi-private swim lessons for swimmers of all ages at their gym in Mt. Laurel and locations across South Jersey.

Their classes for children are specialized by age group and skill level. The Water Babies class gently introduces children aged 24 months to 3 years to the water. Younger babies may also benefit from the Infant Swimming Resource class.

Children ages 3 to 5 start in the Turtles course, where they learn safe pool behavior and practice independent movement in the water. When they have mastered these skills, they move on to the Frogs course, where they work on swimming up to 10 yards, breathing techniques and floating. Then, they progress to the Fish course to improve their stroke skills, develop continued safety skills, develop rotary breathing and learn to tread water.

In the Otter class, older children ages 6 to 12 are introduced to new strokes, such as the breaststroke, sidestroke and elementary backstroke. They practice swimming the full length of the pool with a flotation device. In the more advanced Dolphins course, they swim independently on their front and back for 25 yards, use rhythmic breathing and work on their endurance.

Kennedy Fitness also provides adult lessons for men and women of all ability levels. Non-swimmers who wish to feel more comfortable in the water and gain confidence in a pool setting would benefit from their Adult 1 class, while those who would like to learn the basics of swimming should join their Adult 2 class.

More experienced swimmers can work on their endurance and stroke technique in the Adult 3 class. Additionally, many seasoned athletes have set a new personal record with the one-on-one training offered by Kennedy Fitness' Triathlete Program.
