How do you enjoy making a splash?  As summer draws to an end and we find less time to spend in the sunny outdoors, the indoor pools give our family more ways to keep moving together.  Here are 5 reasons my family loves these pools:

5. Swim Lessons: Both girls have taken swim lessons at NFC, in small groups and in private lessons.  They gained enough skills to compete on the NFC Sharks Swim Team.  Those skills will serve them well to be safe and confident swimmers for life.

4. Stress: For all three of us, the water provides a way to de-stress.  We find it relaxing in a way that is different from other sports and fitness venues.

3. Personal Space: You know those times when the kids are just too squirrelly? I can watch them poolside while they swim and splash until they work out all their wiggles.  We can all be together while having a bit of space in between us.

2. Workout Options: Indoor pools offer year-around venues for fitness.  I can swim all the laps I want or try a class complete with weights designed for the water.  With my kids, I can still do reps like push outs on the side of the pool while they’re around.

1. Active Family Time: It’s as simple as a place where we can all have fun getting in shape.  Even as the kids get older, they still want to be kids and play together in the pool.  This is a family pastime we’ve shared since they were babies, and there’s no age limit.
