My grandchildren visit me in Santa Fe in the summer. For the past two years, I have arranged for a couple of swim lessons with Mermaid Ellen while they are here. As residents of New York City, these children, ages 7 1/2 and 8 years old, have only occasional access to pools and until their swim lessons were afraid even to put their heads under water. They are visiting again this August 2015 and the first thing they asked for were swim lessons with Ellen. They both love the lessons and have become increasingly more comfortable and confident in the water.Aug 2, 2015Verified
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?If you want to enjoy your swimming more, call Ellen. She's about fun, not competition. You're never too old to learn to swim better.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Why not swim as effortlessly as possible? Swimming is the only sport you can do longer and harder as your grow older. It can be done effortlessly while strongly engaging your core. Most pool swimmers, relying on their childhood swim lessons, splash or thrash along, doing damage to their shoulders. It's common for a golfer of many years to seek out a golf pro every year. Seems to me, swimmers would also benefit from a lesson to increase efficiency and eliminate stress in their swim stroke.
