Swim 2 Slim

How does it work

Swim 2 Slim is an innovative new 12-week programme that combines all the benefits of swimming with a supported digital weight loss programme that works around busy schedules.

Participants will receive 10 one hour swimming sessions with a Swimming Coach. Swimming is a great all-around activity. This low impact exercise keeps the heart rate up while taking some of the impact stress off the body. Participants will build endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness.

These friendly weekly group sessions focus on:

• Breathing and exhalation
• Arm recovery styles and hand entry
• Stroke mechanics and improving propulsion for less effort
• Body position and kick technique
