Swimming at Chesham Leisure Centre

by | Feb 14, 2017 | Activities, Health, News

When it comes to going for a swim, it can feel a little daunting stripping down to your swimwear and bearing all in front of a pool full of strangers. This is why Better in partnership with This Girl Can launched a special session just for females at Chesham Leisure Centre. Since the sessions started over 125 ladies have registered to take part. The ladies range in age from 13 to 75; many were non swimmers, some had to conquer their fear of water at the start before becoming the confident swimmers they are today. Swimming is great as it provides a full body workout whilst being low impact and can help reduce the risk of chronic illness whilst burning 200 calories or more in half an hour The sessions are held on Wednesday mornings 9am to 10am and the first is free to all new participants after that the cost is £2.55 per session. There is always a facilitator on hand to offer help and advice. BOPAG
