Query on freestyle

Hi Dale,


I am 38 and have started my swimming lessons. I can swim freestyle with a board..I am scared to start my hand movements. Do you have any tips to overcome this?

Please let me know

Leena


Hi Leena,

Have you ever tried a swim belt for an adult? These are belts the help you float from the middle. If you look at my page on swimming equipment you will see what I mean. It gives you some form of security.


Also push and Glides are good things to practice it helps with the final stages of letting go and finally getting the confidence.


Also you are already having swimming lessons so you are in best safe environment. You have the will to do and determination, Otherwise you wouldn’t have written to me, would you?

So its practice, practice and more practice........


Keep practicing and try the few suggestions and get back to me if you have any more problems. Also I would love to hear what did work in the end and your progress, others can learn from your experiences too.....


Hope this is some help to you, if you have any more questions please get back in touch.

Thanks again Dale :0)
