How To Learn To Swim As An Adult

Video: If you never learned to swim, it’s not too late. In this video, we follow Terry, 35, who never got around to learning to swim, and JR, 30, who’s been afraid of the water since nearly drowning as a child.

They start by learning basic swimming safety in the shallow end of the pool, and overcome fears of the water and of being in front of strangers in a bathing suit. By the last day they’re swimming, for real, in the deep end.

Jealous? Look for adult swimming classes at your local pool, aquatic centre or YMCA.
