It’s never too late to learn how to swim!Lifestyle The List
Recently the USA Swimming Foundation conducted a study that found underprivileged American children are more likely to have little or no swimming ability. Turns out, Kristina Guerrero never learned to swim growing up either, but she recently changed that with a swimming class that had me paddling through the pool in just a half-hour. It’s never too late to learn and Sunsational Swim School's Cherise has three simple tips to get you started.
1. Breath Control
This eases you in to the highly unnatural state of having your head under water. Breathe in, go under and then breathe out.
2. Start Floating
Once you're happy with holding your breath under water, the next step is floating. It might take a little bit of time and practice, but once you get it down you are good to go.
3. Start Swimming
The last step to learning how to swim is to well, swim. Take a breath, float face down, start stroking with your arms and kicking your feet, all while remembering to come up for air.
