101 iSwim @ Boot Camp H2O is Dedicated to Teaching Infants, Children and Any Individuals to Swim Confidently and Safely at the comfort of your home.
“Working at the Swim Academy of current 4-time gold medalist for 9 years has giving me extensive knowledge of swimming and taught me a lot about the sport.”
Honestly, I haven't been to class in a while. "My money is funny, and my change is strange", but I can base my review on how much I miss Boot Camp H2O.
I am a strong swimmer who chose to stick with the beginners class, because the advanced class was out of my league. It's not a joke, I was killing myself trying to keep up --with the chick next to me who was clearly ripped, at least 7 months pregnant, and must have had webbed feet because she was FLYING through the water.
I swam competitively through my childhood and on my high school team, but those days are long behind me. At first, pulling the older, heavier version of myself through the water was like a good bar fight (Then they added a medicine ball to the equation!). But after about 4 classes I noticed that my lung capacity was improving, as well as my stroke--and I was able to move more efficiently and faster. Very exciting!
What I love about it is that you get your butt kicked, but you can see your own improvement quickly, and that's very motivating for me. The best part about these classes is how my body feels afterward. It's completely different than any other land class I've taken with the same intensity. I feel markedly more energized.
I look forward to getting back to class, It will be a birthday gift to myself. Maybe, this time I'll try the advanced class again, if only to find out if " that chick" (sans baby) who's surely faster and more ripped than before really does have webbed feet. You go sister!
H2O Bootcamp is a challenging and very fun workout. I've taken four classes now; and it really is like no other aerobic class.
Since beginning, I've noticed my knees are feeling much better and aren't in constant pain. I didn't realize how much muscle strengthening swimming can do if persistent at it.
Igor, is soft-spoken but runs a tight ship. He pushes each student to meet their maximum potential. I appreciate that he takes the time to watch each student's performance and provides feedback on how to improve. He teaches with a lot of heart.
Lastly, I appreciate how kind classmates are to one another. It makes it enjoyable and a supportive environment to workout in.
Run by Igor & Dana with both beginner and advanced classes, Boot Camp H2O is not like any workout you've ever done!
They do a good job of varying the workouts from day to day, week to week so your body will always be guessing which is awesome for your workouts! I'm a beginner through and through so it's been a learning curve for myself which is great as it makes me want to work/try harder to get better at swimming.
Igor & Dana along with the other instructors make sure you understand what you need to do, how to do it and keep you motivated throughout the challenging but fun hour of working out which starts off on land with an abs workout that they switch out from class to class and trust me, this isn't your run of the mill abs workout as it will leave you sore regardless of your level.
Make sure you come prepared with goggles that suction to your face as well as a pair of fins (if you have them already, if not there are bins for you to borrow fins for class, if needed). If you're looking to switch up your workouts and add some training if you're planning to do triathlons, this is the boot camp for you and I highly recommend it and it's quite affordable!
Since I join the H2O Boot Camp I feel AWESOME! I use to struggle to get myself to the gym and there was always an internal battle between the me that wanted to go for the sake of my health and the lazy me.
This battle is finally over because going to this boot camp is so much fun that I actually want to go! I feel better, have more energy and has tremendously help me emotionally, I use to deal with anxiety and since joining the boot camp my anxiety level is going down.
I feel very fortunate to be a part of this. Thanks!
When I first saw this boot camp on Groupon during the Summer, I HAD to get it...I missed the deal. So, when a client mentioned this workout a few months ago, I immediately went to the web-site and signed up.
This is the BEST workout ever! Probably the fastest hour I have experienced in awhile. I was a little nervous at first getting into the pool, seeing that nowadays I only jump into the pool for fun. I had fun and exercised like I was training for the Olympics. Everyone was very welcoming to the "newcomer" and made me feel part of the group.
Igor and Lana are top notch, they have stellar customer service. They make themselves available for any questions and help you get on a schedule that best fits you. They are NOT pushy and I really like that!
Lastly, I like the fact that you are able to take a trial class to see if this boot camp is a good fit for you. I have to admit, this is not for everyone but if you come and get in the water you are definitely going to have fun.
When it comes down to it staying fit is essential to longevity, looking and feeling good. Boot Camp H2O is an exciting new way to push you past your limits and excel. It's easy to fall into the old trap of missing the gym and not pushing yourself, but not at Boot Camp H2O. We are an aquatic fitness training that brings together the best of water and land training techniques to help you achieve your goals.
First, we all know cardiovascular training is important for your heart, but did you also know that our aquatic fitness program will help you to increase your lung capacity! Why is this important? As we grow older and by the time reach our 70s our lung capacity is half what it use to be. This may result in lung diseases like pneumonia which is a major killer in the elderly. Building your heart strength and your lung volume now will help you to move into the later years with a healthy outlook. Training allows you to enjoy a strong healthy body now and in the future.
Our aquatic fitness training directly focuses on building your heart and lungs with under water and stamina exercises, like treading water and jump ups. Boot Camp H2O's water fitness training is also much easier on your joints than most land based Boot Camp's allowing you to continue your progress without creating injuries.
Second, strength training is also important as building muscle mass increases your basal metabolic rate, which means your BURN MORE CALORIES, which helps you lose weight and get lean. In Boot Camp H2O water fitness trains you with plyometrics, elastic resistance devices and weights, both in and out of the water to help improve your core strength!
Come try us out to see what you have been missing!
The body-shaping benefits of swimming are the result of a perfect storm of calorie burn and muscle recruitment. An easy swim burns around 500 calories an hour, while a vigorous effort can torch almost 700. And because water is nearly 800 times denser than air, each kick, push, and pull is like a mini resistance workout for your entire body—especially your core, hips, arms, shoulders, and glutes. So in addition to blasting calories as you swim, you build lean muscle, which ignites your metabolism so that you burn more calories once you've showered and dried off.
The irony is that while swimming makes you lean and mean, it's also kind to your body. Water basically neutralizes gravity, so you become virtually weightless when immersed, giving your joints a much-needed vacation. "You can swim almost every day without risking injury," says Joel Stager, Ph.D., director of the Councilman Center for the Science of Swimming at Indiana University at Bloomington, who has studied the effects of swimming for years. "You can't say the same for running or strength training."
And that makes swimming something you can do for your entire life—a major bonus because it can literally help you stay younger: "Our research shows that habitual swimmers are biologically up to 20 years younger than their actual age," Stager says. The data, which were presented at an American College of Sports Medicine Conference, revealed that a swimmer's blood pressure, cholesterol levels, cardiovascular performance, central nervous system, and cognitive functioning are all comparable to someone far younger.
