We teach beginners and train athletes. We build confidence in nervous first-timers and refine technique in competent swimmers. However old you are, whatever level you’re at, Swimming Nature can help.
By combining highly structured modular lesson plans, small class sizes and hands-on, in-water instructor attention, we ensure you or your child makes rapid and visible progress.
Not only do we emphasise the mechanics of the four strokes, but we teach the how, why and what behind effortless, energy-efficient swimming, so with Swimming Nature, you’ll swim faster, better and in harmony with your body.
You will see at Fitness Highbury that Covid -19 measures have been introduced in line with guidance from our governing bodies. These are measure have been added for the safety of our pupils, staff and visitors. For the safety of you, your children, the Instructors and the Fitness First team, we ask that the changes are respected and adhered, and we thank you in advance for your co-operation.
Customer pre visit information: Fitness First are operating a phased return to service and as such Swimming Lessons are a supervised service. As part of the new safety measures, each lesson must be escorted to and from the pool by a Swimming Nature Pool concierge. Pupils and carers and not permitted to make their own way into the venue without this supervision. There will be a limit of 1 carer per child allowed.
Pupil preparation: Please arrive pool ready. You will be required change on poolside for your lessons and dry off only before leaving. There is a strict policy at this venue in place to reduce the touch points a customer has and as such prams and push chairs are not permitted in the venue for pupils in Frog level lessons upward.
Arrival at venue: You must arrive 10 minutes early and customers will be required to sign in and out on a NHS QR code that will be provided by the pool concierge. Temperatures will be checked at reception and if over 38 degrees, you will be asked to leave and you must contact Swimming Nature immediately. Hand sanitiser stations are located at reception and throughout the gym. We ask that you regularly clean your hands whilst in the venue. You are not required to wear a face mask, but they can be purchased at Reception if needed. Lost property is being kept at the venue, but we ask all customers to check they have all their belongings before they leave. Prams/Push Chairs will not be allowed in this venue.
Journey around the building: The journey around the building has changed. The Pool Concierge will escort customers to the pool via the corridor between the male and female changing rooms. Swimmers must come ready to swim and have pre showered if possible.
Changing rooms layout and rules. As part of strict government guidelines, towel hire has stopped and will not be available in a Fitness First Health Club. We ask that all pupils arrive swim ready and make there way to the poolside where they can dress down for their lesson. Changing rooms are not in use. We encourage all pupils to pre shower at home if possible. When leaving pupils must towel down to dry off only and leave the venue as quickly as possible. Water fountains are not in use and pupils must bring their own water, and blue over shoes must always be worn whilst on poolside. Can we also ask that parents (along with children) swiftly vacate the club when your lesson is over as the lounge in Fitness First is not available, again, this is simply to reduce traffic allows Fitness First to manage capacity levels with more ease.
Poolside: The pool is now accessed vis the corridor in between the make and female changing rooms This is to reduce time use and capacity of the changing rooms. Poolside viewing is strictly 1 parent/guardian to 1 pupil. The pool hall has a one-way system in place to reduce people crossing over with each other. Pupils will dress down in front of the blue benches. Once the lesson is finished the pupil can towel down and dry off only in the area next to the loungers before leaving. The showers are not to be used. Once changed you will be escorted to reception by the Pool Concierge where you must sign out on the NHS QR code.
We are keen to provide a high level of service to you and your child, however, it is important we all work together and adhere to strict government guidelines to support you, the pupil the Instructors and Fitness First staff.
After two sessions with Beatrice, my fears have been replaced with calm, controlled love of being in the water, and I have actually begun to swim
