Help your children learn how to swim and stay safe in the water. Sign them up for swim lessons at HealthQuest Fitness and Wellness Center. Students not only have fun, but also gain skills that could save their lives.
Group & Private Lessons
In group swim lessons, four to six children spend 45-minute sessions learning to float, kick, and practice basic stroke movements. Ask us about private or semi-private lessons for even more-personalized coaching for children or adults.

Benefits of Swimming
When your children learn to swim, they:
- Gain a skill they can use for the rest of their lives
- Have less risk of injury than in other sports
- Improve stamina
- Learn how to prevent drowning, the third-leading cause of unintentional injury deaths among youths
- Prevent childhood obesity
- Strengthen their heart and lungs
Because water supports muscles and joints, swimming can especially help children with disabilities. Ask your pediatrician before starting swim lessons if your child has a medical condition.
