For the past several years, Tyler has wanted me to learn how to swim. She insists it’ll change my life. I’ve always wanted to learn. Growing up in Philadelphia, there were no pools around, so I never had the chance to take swimming lessons!
Our friend and Olympic Gold Medalist, Rowdy Gaines, oversees Aquatics at our local YMCA and has been offering for years to teach me how to swim. Well, I’m finally taking him up on his offer and I’m hoping to bring you with me!
It’s so important in the state of Florida that you, as an adult, know how to swim. Maybe you’re like me and didn’t know how to get started. As an incentive, our friends at the Y are discounting adult swim lessons by taking 50% off if you stop by any Central Florida YMCA to sign up ON Saturday, June 16. This offer is only available on Saturday, June 16.
Rowdy Gaines and I will be at the Oviedo YMCA on Saturday morning, June 16 from 9-11 a.m. if you’d like to stop by to say hi and sign up! Or find a YMCA location near you and make plans now to stop by to sign up.
The YMCA is also gifting 5 GPraise listeners with adult swim lessons, so you can learn to swim this summer, too. Just fill out the form below to enter! If you win, you’ll be able to pick the YMCA to join a group adult swim class. It includes 45 minute sessions once a week for 8 weeks. We’ll be letting our winners know that they’ve won by Wednesday, June 13.
