Being in Australia we are surrounded by water wherever we go. By exposing children to water and swimming at an early age it will help prepare them for a life of fun activities such as pool parties, beach holidays, surfing, etc. With this being the case, we’ve found the top 5 benefits of learning to swim at a young age:

Life and life-saving skill:

To feel comfortable in the water and being able to swim is a life skill that will give you confidence and increase your water safety. Hopefully, you’ll never find yourself in a situation but if the time comes you’ll feel confident enough to hold your head above water and help those around you to do the same.

Physical benefits:

If you’re looking for a fun workout, you cannot beat swimming. Swimming is a full-body workout that engages your legs, upper body, core, lats and triceps. Although it might not seem like it, swimming will use more of your body’s major muscle groups than any other form of cardio.

Social Skills:

Going to swimming lessons or join a local swim club is a great way for children to play, interact and learn to take direction. This can set them up for social skills that will benefit them for life.

Challenging and rewarding:

Swimming offers a workout that can be both challenging and rewarding, whether you’re a new swimmer looking to improve your fitness or a competitive swimmer looking to improve on your personal best it will allow you to improve and feel great with every milestone.

Lifelong Skill:

Swimming is a skill that you are unlikely to forget over time. Similar to riding a bike, you may be out of practice but once you’re in the water it will come back. This is a great skill to have because as you get older, swimming has a very low impact on the body’s joint and can be a form of exercise you can continue to do.

What is involved in the session?

Each Boot Camp week is different. We mix together functional training techniques with resistance equipment to give you the best workout possible.

Ever seen this piece of equipment at the gym and wondered how to incorporate it into your workout? They’re called a Bosu ball and they are a great idea to change up your exercises!



1. Toe taps

Lift your knees high while alternating touching the Bosu ball with the tip of your foot.



2. Squat jumps

Start in a side lunge position, and whilst balancing one foot on the Bosu ball and one foot on the floor, push off the ground to move the foot on the ground onto the ball whilst the foot on the ball moves onto the other side of the ball onto the floor. Keep alternating legs.



3. Burpees

Holding the Bosu ball upside down in the straight arm plank position, move your legs to a tucked position, do a standing squat whilst holding the ball. Stand-up and lift the ball above your head. Move the Bosu ball back down to the straight arm plank position, and add a push-up if you’re feeling a challenge! Then repeat.



4. and for an extra challenge… Bosu push-ups!

Grip your fingers on the edge of the Bosu ball upside down. Bend your elbows to lower your entire body into a push-up position, pushing your hand’s weight evenly into the ball. On the way up, push your entire body upwards whilst pulling the ball closer to your body, then land the Bosu ball back on the floor with bent arms and lower back into the push-up position. And repeat!
