Q&A with Denise Croucher, Aquatics Director

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Swimming is a great fitness tool that people of all ages can enjoy. It is the one sport that positively cross trains for every other sport as well as being a sport that can be enjoyed your entire lifetime. How many football players are still playing in their 60s, 70s, 80s? Go to any Masters Swim Meet and there will be lots of seniors swimming.

Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain?? Why or why not?

Although it is important to work hard to make improvements, working to the point of actual pain usually means injury, which is never a good idea.

What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?

Learning to swim is both fun and functional. Classes are focused on making the process as fun as possible while continuing to move the students to becoming competent swimmers. We have high expectations for our students but want to keep lessons fun enough they will look forward to returning each class.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Our offer includes youth levels 1-3 group swim lessons as well as our Parent & Tot class.
