Description:

Aquamermaid School is the newest and hottest aquatic activity!

What is mermaid swimming?
AquaMermaid is an artistic expression and a fun way to keep fit! It is a new discipline where you learn how to swim like a fish using both legs as a fish tail and using your core muscles to propel forward. With multiple arm placement variations you can perform a variety of unique swimming movements.

How does it feel to wear a mermaid tail?
It is like having a mini motor attached to your feet. The incredible speed drawn from the monofin is not only a ton of fun, but also extremely beneficial to a swimmer’s body. The dolphin motion demands that the swimmer engage all of the muscles through the legs and the core.

KIDS CLASSES

Mermaid Classes for Kids (Mermaids & Merman)?
Mermaid class encourages children to swim and get exercise while they are playing. It teaches children to use their legs for a strong kicking motion to better support a stronger swim style. While it encourages swimming, children have so much fun pretending to be mermaids that they are completely unaware of the health benefits they are reaping. Classes starts at 7 years old.

Here’s what you can expect in an Aquamermaid class:
1. A lot of fun
2. Learn new swimming techniques
3. Get a great workout targeting the abs, glutes and thighs.

Mermaid body – The workout
Aquamermaid classes are a perfect way to get into great shape! It offers a total-body workout from toning your glutes, quads and abs, combined with great cardio exercises working on breath control under water. As you learn new techniques, you develop your swimming grace, dolphin kick fluidity and propulsion power. AquaMermaid is a low impact sport that benefits from the buoyant effect of the water that takes pressure off joints, alleviating pain and discomfort.

Mermaid tails - The equipment
The monofin is our main piece of equipment and offers a amazing way to extend our body movements to increase our swimming performance. Mermaid tails are made of stretch fabric that goes up to the waist, and has a monofin attached at the end. We have a variety of sizes ranging from 7 years old kids to size 14 adult. We supply the tail for all our classes.
