Ever thought about trying a new form of exercise but thought you had not the time, enthusiasm or confidence to do so? Don’t worry you are not alone!  National Fitness Day was first set up to encourage people to overcome these inner thoughts and celebrate getting fit and active with other like-minded people.

Mermaid Swimming

Bored of the same old types of exercise and want to try something that is not only fun but also offers a fantastic workout?.. Look no further than adult mermaid swimming!

This excellent idea is the brainchild of Mermaid Wave Swim School who hold mermaid classes all around the country run by experienced mermaid swim instructors. 

Mermaid Wave saw a gap in the market which linked exercise that stimulates you but primarily and most importantly is fun, a must if you want to keep to your goals of being a healthier and fitter person!

Health Benefits

Studies show that most people know that exercising is very important but it can also be monotonous and boring and usually falls in the “will do later” list due to lack of time or unwillingness.  It is however a very important fact that to enjoy the vitality of good health you must exercise. 

With this in mind choosing an exercise class that is not only different but fun and very good for your body surely is the answer to all your workout problems.

It has been proven that if the mermaid classes are attended on a regular basis and healthy eating is implemented your body will start to become healthier and stronger and not only that your posture will also change due to the body positioning in the pool and core work. Your overall cardio will also improve over the weeks and you will notice a change in your posterior muscles….always a bonus!

Mermaid Swimming Technique

The key to Mermaid swimming is being graceful in the water and performing slow movements making the swimming look effortless.

The tails restrict the swimmers leg movements giving the effect of no legs and as the fin is covered and the persons feet are hidden it gives the tail effect, which in turn makes the swimmer use a flutter kick known as a Butterfly leg kick.

The motion of the butterfly kick is a very different process once you are a Mermaid. The costume gives you full support to complete the swimming style and the Magic Fin enables a greater speed, both together are the essence of mermaiding. 

Swimming with a Magic Fin helps with your overall body position and improves your technique in the water by creating extra buoyancy as you swim. Fin swimming is a new way of learning swimming techniques and co-ordination whilst at the same time improving your overall fitness.

Celebrities have already dipped their toes into this fun craze including Geri Halliwell;Planet Mermaids very own celebrity ambassador, Myleen Klass and Britney Spears to name just a few.
