TAKING THE PLUNGE - 3 STEPS TO BETTER SWIMMING
1. Pool Inductions
Your swimming journey at Better starts with a pool induction with one of our expert Swim Doctors. They will help guide your through our facilities, explain everything we have to offer and ensure your experience is stress free. Our pool inductions are open to everyone and depending on your experience we can either include a full induction of the facility, or if you're eager to get started we can jump right in.
2. Refocus & Technique Clinics
Whether you're a first timer or returning to swimming after a period of time out, it can be quite daunting for most of us. Our Swim Doctors can help you focus on what you want to achieve, by assessing what's going well in the water or what could be improved and determine a plan to reinvigorate your sessions.
We offer technique and fitness clinics, these are designed to help you become a more efficient, faster swimmer. Clinics either focus on breaking down your stroke and technique or pure fitness swimming. Both clinics also involve pre and post workout discussions on the best ways to help you improve and stay on track.
3. Activation & Advice
We want to make sure that you can access expert advice on swimming techniques and fitness as often and as easily as possible, so not only do we offer our Pool Inductions and Clinics, you will find free swimming session cards on poolside or from reception at your local centre to offer some additional guidance. Our expert Swim Doctors will also host monthly drop-in sessions and annual masterclasses that everyone can attend and be part of at your centre.

We have had an overwhelmingly positive response to the masterclasses that have already taken place. Below is some of the feedback we have recieved so far...
I wanted tell you how much I enjoyed the swimming masterclass today. We often come to Oasis club for a relaxing swim and always thought it would be great to get swimming lessons. Coming today to find pro swimmers like Keri-Anne trying to improve our technique was amazing. And the fact that it happened randomly on my birthday was awesome too! The perfect birthday present!!

Swimming now has its own marathon. Marathon Swims, the ultimate swimming challenge returns in 2018 to the iconic London Aquatics Centre on 10th & 11th November.
Swimming a marathon distance first came to prominence as a 10k open water event at the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. The marathon swim has been a key spectacle in the Olympic schedule ever since with races in the Serpentine (London 2012) and at Copacabana Beach (Rio 2016).
Marathon Swims has redefined the challenge as an indoor, pool-based Marathon 10k, Half Marathon 5k and a 1k distance event. The event sold out in its first year, and this year organisers have added an extra day due to high demand and to give participants the option of choosing a date to suit them.
