Realistic Swim Training

Lifesaving training consists of the best elements from British, Dutch and German lifesaving courses with a focus on realism rather than a rigid plan. It involves some theory and lots of practice in the water.

Survival swimming sessions are based on the Dutch "Zwem ABC", which provides the best introduction into aquatic survival we have found so far. We've added a few bits to make it more fun and more challenging.

Survival swimming and lifesaving is all about being prepared for the unexpected. You may not have the opportunity to change into your surf shorts when an emergency arises.

Therefore, we swim in clothes to prepare for this with realistic training, something most clubs overlook. Being prepared can save lives.

Give it a try sometime. It is terrific fun. You'll be amazed. If you don't have some of the gear needed, let us know and we may be able to lend you some survival swimming kit.

During our training we hydrate properly to keep performance levels up. Afterwards we enjoy a yummy big Herbalife 24 protein shake to rebuild muscles and get strong. Get yours from the
