Water is the third most convenient medium for human movement after air and chocolate mousse. Master the art of traversing this substance with today's Groupon: For $27, you get one month of weekly swim lessons at The Aquatic Zone in Corona (a $54 value).
Favoring small group swimming lessons targeted to all ages, The Aquatic Zone's instructors are trained in the Aquatic Concepts, Inc. method, and use positive reinforcement to teach beginning swimmers the basics of water comfort, body balance, and movement. Once budding amphibians have gotten their foot-flippers wet, they'll try out various strokes and other swimming must-knows such as wall kicks, breathing patterns, and psychic communication with sea life. Lessons are available for children as young as six months and are offered at multiple skill levels for every age group. The goals at each stage are clearly presented and taught, ensuring that the time spent in the pool is always productive and goal-oriented. Awards such as toys, certificates of completion, and surgically implanted gills are bestowed upon students when all the elements of a particular level are mastered. Sessions typically last a half hour, and the saltwater chlorination pools keep water clean without irritating eyes or skin.
Note that the standard $15 membership fee is waived with this Groupon; reservations are required.
- The business is set apart by a low teacher-to-student ratio, 1 to 4; a saltwater-chlorinated pool system; and a highly trained staff. Clients also progress more rapidly because practice is ongoing and not affected by the weather. Pool temperatures are maintained at 90 degrees. – Sharilyn Bankole, Press-Enterprise
- For the entire 30 minutes my kids laughed and smiled as they learned many different skills associated with those already comfortable in the water (this was the Stingray class). – David L., Yelp
