2018 is over now! It is a perfect time to plan activities for 2019 and to let your New Year resolutions to come in true. I would like to thank you all who were swimming with us in 2018 and welcome our new students who will join us in 2019. 2018 was a year of growth for us! We increased the amount of members by 182% and hope to continue this trend in 2019!
I would like to thank our wonderful coaches and our one and only administrator for their wonderful work that they performed with true passion.
Let us guess: You want to lose weight in 2019, or maybe just eat healthier. Perhaps you want to spend less money or spend more time with your friends and family.
Self-improvement, or at least the desire for it, is a common goal for New Year. But for all the good intentions, only a tiny fraction of us keep our resolutions; University of Scranton (USA) research suggests that just 8% of people achieve their New Year’s goals.
One of the main reasons why you should learn swimming even if you are adult is the quality time you can spend with your family!
Family bonding is about building a lifetime of positive memories. It’s hard to find activities that are enjoyable for everyone, regardless of age. The pool is a place for adults, children, aunts, uncles and grandparents. Every kid will say that he loves to go to the pool. Doing swimming together can be happy quality time for everyone.
We all know that swimming has amazing health and psychological benefits, and we already spoke about it in our Blog.
It is true that swimming works the whole body, improving cardiovascular conditioning, muscle strength, endurance, posture, and flexibility all at the same time. The cardiovascular system in particular benefits because swimming improves your body’s use of oxygen without overworking your heart. But are you sue that swimming is good for you?
Everyone claims to be the best, so how are we different?
It is not too respectful to say that we are better than others, so we are just going to tell you our pros and differences. The right to make the conclusions is yours!
Our story began in 2015 when our co-founder coaches decided to create own school with a “better” teaching system based on their own teaching experience in other swimming clubs.
Usually we work basically with the breast stroke technique. Breaststroke officially is the first stroke to learn in Sweden according to Swedish Swimming Association. However, technically it is the most complicated one. Breaststroke is quite inefficient stroke but very relaxed one. That is why it used to be taught first, because in case of emergency or incident in water a person would able to save more energy, stay alive longer. So that is why we are teaching it first.
Yes, sometimes the water temperature is far from the one you use to have in your bathtub. Most of all if you are absolute beginner, cold water can be another challenge. Don’t worry, this is also manageable. We tell you how you can help yourself.
We feel responsible about how our students will “enter” in their swimming life this summer. They should do it, because Stockholm has fantastic places for bathing. However we should warn you about the differences between pool and open water swimming.
Before starting a new course with a new group we always send a welcome letter with some easy tips. Slippers always take part in our guidelines. When you pack a bag for your lessons, pool sandals are the same important as a towel, or even more.
You could go barefoot in the swimming pool if it’s allowed, but pool footwear offers two important benefits (which is why it’s often required): safety and foot health.
And we are here to tell you more about our wonderful neighborhood.
Part of the Royal National City Park, the lush Haga Park (or just Haga) is situated just north of Stockholm in the suburb of Solna. Founded by the monarch Gustav III in 1780-1797, Haga is Sweden’s foremost example of an English landscape park, and one of Sweeden’s most popular recreational areas. It’s also the site of many historical landmarks.
