Given that roughly two-thirds of the planet's surface is covered with water, Jeff and Kristy Pearson firmly believe that knowing how to swim is a necessary life skill. The Pearsons and their staff of handpicked instructors impart this essential talent in lessons for students of all ages, from adults to children. Boost Swim School's mission is to teach people how to safely stay afloat and swim with fundamental stroke mechanics, but they also help attendees develop the form and technique needed to compete on a team. Regular practice is the best way to become comfortable with swimming, so the school hosts year-round lessons in its indoor pool, which remains heated to a comfortable 89 degrees regardless of the season.
