"When I grow up I want to be a mermaid!"
"I want to be a mermaid for Halloween!"
"I can't run, I'm a mermaid."
(The latter would be me:)
Sound familiar? Then "mermaiding" might be the right thing for you and your mini-me’s.
What is “mermaiding”?
Mermaiding or mermaid swimming is fun way to embrace your inner mermaid and to learn how to swim and move like a mermaid, whilst wearing an actual mermaid tail!
Mermaid tails - The equipment
Mermaid tails are made of soft, stretchy fabric worn up to the waist and feel like a second skin. The monofin at the tail's end helps propel ourselves through the water.
Swimmers move their bodies in a dolphin motion which engages all of the muscles through the legs and the core. The incredible speed drawn from the monofin is not only a ton of fun but is also extremely beneficial to your body.
Tail sizes range from 7 year old kids to adults.
Mermaid classes for kids
Mermaid class encourages children to swim and get exercise while they are playing. It teaches children to use their legs in a strong kicking motion to better support a stronger swim style.
Classes starts at 7 years old.
Mermaid classes for adults
Mermaid classes are a total-body workout from toning your glutes, quads and abs, combined with great cardio exercises working on breath control under water.Enjoy the benefits of stronger core muscles, higher endurance, higher flexibility in shoulders, spine and hips, and less back pain.
