Adult Swimming Lessons

At 23, i feel it's time to learn how to swim, as i can't. Has anyone been to adult swimming lessons, how was it. I think it could be a bit embarrassing, kind of like going to adult maths classes that you should have learnt when you were younger.

Full of old people trying to lose weight to fit in a cheaper coffin. Old people with weak bladders. :cry:

Everyone will be in the same boat, its not like someone will be taking swimming lessons that can swim just to laugh at the others.

You'll really enjoy it, I learned at school but hadn't been in a pool for about 15 years, we went for a short break a couple of months ago and it was so good to get back into the water, took me a couple of days to get my water legs back though.

I had 1 to 1 swim lessons when I was 18 to teach me to become a strong swimmer in overalls, ( was joining navy! ) It was embarrasing each time I went, but I learnt so it was worth it in the end x

I would go for it

I remember way back when my dad learnt (in his 40s), he learnt with floats. It's not a joke learning to swim, yeah you may feel embarrassed to start with, but it'll be worth it in the end. Certainly not more embarrassing than telling people you can't swim at 23.

I think that's the problem, there is no boat! :giggle:

I did have lessons when i was about 13, but i wasn't a very good learner, just a good sinker.

I cant swim and feel a bit silly when i take my daughter to the pool for a splash about shes three but as long as shes having fun i dont mind.

My Mum went for swimming lessons when she was 60! She managed fine and everyone else was roughly the same age. She's now able to swim and is a bit more confident in the water but still avoids swimming pools!!!

you should never be to embarrassed to learn anything, no matter what your age
#12
I can't believe there are so many people who can't swim :O ( no disrespect ), you should definitely go as swimming is great fun and a good way of keep fit ... also if you go abroad on holiday you will enjoy future holidays so much more!

OP - try ringing your local baths and ask them the average age of the class, just explain that you are a little embarrassed - you could even give them a fake name, so when you finally go - you wont be embarrassed that you rang :)

Good Luck!

I got half way through my silver lifesaving badges when I was 11 or 12, got bored of it and gave up. Since then I've been swimming about 3 times. Last year I was in a pool in Spain and it felt alien to me! Took a while to get used to it again, but there is nothing to worry about. Great for your own fitness as well.

i learnt to swim at a council run pool in Birmingham 2 years back. 1/2 hour lessons on a wednesday evening. Adults only ages from in the twenties upto 60. Best thing i have done for years. Never looked back and now go swimming 3 or 4 times a week.

I taught myself in our small pool on holiday, just took it slowly.

1) Walking in water
2) Trying to float on the top next to the edge
3) Getting used to holding breath under water

Then I started to push myself from one side to the other then stand up (all in the shallow end), then basically you'll start moving your arms and legs naturally and then after a week or so of that everyday I knew how to swim.

I did try to learn in school, but it was stupid, and the teachers sucked, and I could never understand, and getting a nose full of snot in public lessons = fail.

I also taught my self to swim when I was on holiday at 16, The pool had no shallow end so I got in and kept letting go of the side and realised I was treading water and no sinking.

However 11yrs later, I swim in a fashion, takes me so long to swim a length! Would like to do swimming lessons to teach me how to do it properly.
