Champions Fitness Center's Swim Lessons
Whether you are just learning to swim, are a little more advanced, have a disability, or are just afraid of the water, Caroline Lindow Antonuccio is the swim instructor for you!
Caroline started swimming at an early age and found that water was on of her happiest places. Her goal is to show children of all ages, from babies to the ageless young at heart, to love the water as much as she does.
Swimming for fun as a kid in her family’s swimming pool in Massachusetts, Caroline then joined a prominent swim team, as a pre-teen, when she moved to Arizona. She competed in both individual and relay events and placed in her specialties of freestyle and butterfly. One of her coaches, and swimming inspirations, was Augie Busch, who is currently the Head Coach at the University of Virginia.
Caroline follows a “work hard, play hard” motto, while bringing humor and understanding to her lessons. She believes in never saying “can’t,” and will work to try it a different way to achieve success. By drawing out the strengths of her students, she strives for their excellence, tapping into their innate abilities.
Caroline’s certifications include CPR, AED, First Aid and Lifeguard.
Level 1: The very first time you’re putting your toes in the water! Otherwise known as the “Bottom Feeders,” students are totally dependent on the instructor. In class, they will learn to become comfortable in the water and will be taught the basic fundamentals of swimming.
Level 2: Get used to blowing bubbles in the water, build endurance and learn the basic fundamentals of breath control! Students will be able to make it from one side of the pool (lengthwise) to the other without going under or needing any assistance from the instructor.
Level 3: Students will learn the basic elements of swimming, starting with thee stroke breakdown. They will work on the freestyle, breaststroke, back stroke and the elementary back stroke.
Level 4: This class is not for the faint of heart! It is designed for the more experienced and advanced swimmer. You will have to test into this class and if you meet the criteria YOU’RE IN!! Starting with a review of Level 3, in this class you will do swim team based workouts, work form and technique, learn to breath on both sides and perfect the butterfly (which is one of the hardest strokes). Caroline will also teach basic life guarding skills so you can learn to save yourself and others!
Parent & Child: This class is designed especially for the parent and child. Not only is it a great time to bond with your little one, but it also teaches him or her to not be afraid of the water. You can keep everyone active during the long winter months by making it a play date with your friends and their kids!
