Learn to Swim Without a Float

 Learn to swim without a float. Does it seem impossible to you? Everyone can learn to swim, so ‘they’ say!

This depends on the teaching methods. But with my range of adult swimming lessons, residential lessons and use of my private swimming pool it will make the process of teaching you how to learn to swim without a float easier and more comfortable for you.

The popular way to teach someone how to swim is to give them a float to hold in front of them and the person is encouraged to lie on the water holding the float and leaning heavily upon it with their head out of the water. this practice makes the legs go down and to kick in the depth of the water cause a person to feel out of breath compounding the anxiety they may feel.

Swimming lessons using floats is not the best way to learn to swim. What happens when the float is taken away? The first thing the person does when using it is to lean into the water, because that is what they have been doing for months by using a float, and guess what happens?
The hands go down and the person feels totally out of balance, feeling that the whole body is going to ‘tip forwards’ into the water…..panic! The best practice is to learn to swim without a float.

How can a person understand how to get their ‘balance’ in the water by using a float? It is not possible, using a float does not stabilise the human body in the water. Once your feet are off the floor you are nothing but a floating object in the water and the water will react to everything you do.

What the beginner doesn’t know is that they have their own float, their lungs!

Swimming lessons are successful when a person realises this and understands the ‘seesaw’ effect. What do I mean about that?
