The results from the two lessons that we have done for Eleanor Hamilton have been great. Eleanor had not been in the water for 64 years. By the second lesson Eleanor only needed support from one swim aid and managed to propel herself through the water gracefully for 10m. Eleanor said she felt lovely and light in the water and that the sessions made her feel very relaxed. The highlight for me was when Eleanor mentioned “I have been dreaming of being able to swim again”. This only showing that you are never too old to learn!
“As a racing cyclist and runner I was keen to compete in triathlon. Unfortunately my lack of swimming ability was holding me back so I enrolled on the Love to Swim programme at my local High Life Highland facility, TRACC, in Tain.
It’s now about six months since my first Love to Swim lesson and my confidence in the water has improved massively. It still isn’t easy, but it is fun and very rewarding and I would highly recommend the Love to Swim programme to anyone. If I can still learn to swim at 36 years old then anybody can!”
