How Swim-Easy Changed My life for Good

How swim-easy changed my life for good. Do something today that your future self will thank you for. I was genuinely panicky as I drove to Irene’s private pool, even to the point of hitting the wing mirror on the car as I drove over a narrow bridge across a river because I was in such a state imagining the bridge collapsing and me plunging in and drowning!

Now the same time this week I can see how swim-easy changed my life for good. I am so much more confident, I know I can survive in the water and more than that – I have discovered that I LOVE  being in the water ?! Without Irene, this would never, ever have happened.
The first day was terrifying. The pool looked so huge! And I was sure that Irene wouldn’t understand how much I dreaded getting in there and might make me move on to ‘dangerous’ things before I was ready… I needn’t have worried. Irene understood me perfectly. She has lived with a phobia of water herself, so she knows exactly how to deal with this terrible fear in other people. We did everything slowly and without pressure, with Irene talking me through every single thing and explaining it to me. Some things, like the fact that water WILL hold you up, were so unbelievable to me that Irene proved them to me again and again until I was convinced… and I took a lot of convincing! I had believed all my life that people who enjoyed swimming knew some special magic trick that meant they didn’t drown… I couldn’t learn that trick, I was too fat, too nervous, too old… and now I can do it too, it changed my life!
Today we finished the 20 hours with something so awesome that I have a big smile on my face just writing about it… I floated IN THE DEEP END

But… with Irene’s coaching and encouragement, I did something today that I will never forget, it changed my life! You can do it too! I promise – if I can do it – you can! Take the plunge, order lessons with Irene – you will never regret it. ? How Swim-Easy changed my life for good and  Irene will do the same for you!

You are one in a million – Christina.
