Swimmax is a swim school in Singapore which offers aquatic programme with wide range of classes for toddlers, juniors and adults alike. It provides specialized and progressive programme to nurture confidence and physical development; as well as enhancing and maturing fine motor skills of students in their swimming lessons.
New program to its lineup is the so-called Parent and Tot which is designed for babies who are 12 months to years old. Swimming tots are typically 6 months ahead in physical development, 10 months ahead incognitive development, and 15 months ahead in social and emotional development. The programme was founded in the new study which has found many benefits of introducing tots to the water early. The Parent and Tot offers a class fill with fun and favourable learning experience for both parent and tot. This programme seeks to emphasize the trust and understanding between the parent and tot. As with the tots, it seeks to encourage and enhance their early development of water skills. There is one coach per four parents and tot.
Swimmax believes that beyond developmental, safety is another factor. Tots who are exposed to lessons early are generally more respectful of water safety habits and more confident when in the water. If they fall into the deep, they will know how to get to the top and roll over to be on their back from their reaction abilities. Learning to swim at an early age will help babies learn to respect the water and to exercise caution when they are in or near it. Beside water safety awareness, children also develop fundamental swimming skills which allow them to enjoy water recreational activities lifelong.
Studies have also shown that children who participate in swimming programme in their formative years tend to acquire a vast array of skills earlier than those who do not. They reach physical milestone earlier, score significantly better in visual-motor skill tasks and perform better when completing mathematical tasks. Many of these skills are highly valuable in learning environment and will be benefit young children as they transit into formal learning context such as pre-school or school.
Everyone knows that swimming helps in improving and maintaining heart rate, blood circulation and a healthy weight. Swimming also has little unknown benefits than other forms of exercise. It encompasses muscle toning, breathing control like in meditative qualities. With so many peripheral benefits in one exercise, undeniable it is a holistic workout.
As water buoyancy can support the human body body, those with injuries, suffering from obesity or at an advanced age can easily swim for a longer period of time without stressing their joints and muscles and thus help them to work more on their cardio and enable them to tone every part of their body which is much like working out in the gym.
Studies also show that swimming regularly can improve breathing problem such as asthma, even up to year after they stop swimming. For those who do not have breathing problem, swimming can increase their lung volume and force them to learn proper breathing techniques.
Beside health and fitness, swimming helps to lay a good foundation of aquatic skills which can lead to developing and appreciating aquatic activities such as Snorkeling and Scuba diving lifelong.
