As you can imagine the process for taking lessons now is quite different to what it was before March last year.
It’s very much the process that has changed though. Our teaching philosophy and our lovely instructors remain the same. Our hope is that once you are in the water you won’t notice much difference.
The new process is designed to keep you and your instructor as safe as possible as well of course as hotel staff, guests and gym members.
In essence, the process revolves around two things:
- minimising the time that you are in the pool and changing rooms
- keeping a social distance
If you have been to an indoor pool since last summer all of this will be pretty familiar to you. If this is your first time in a pool since then it might seem quite involved. But don’t worry it’s not as complex as it reads and it really comes down to just two things:
- arrive on time for your lesson – not too early and not late
- keep your time in the changing rooms as minimal as possible
Once you have had your first lesson back it will quickly become routine.
The good news is that unlike some pools you can still use the showers and have the use of hairdryers and fluffy towels etc. Plus the health club completed a refurbishment in September. It was beautiful before and it’s even more beautiful now.
And this is where we need your help. We need you to take the time to read about the new process and to comply with this and any directions of the hotel or your instructor on the day.
We are here to help so if you have any questions at all please just ask.
For ease of reading we’ve broken this into four parts:
- leaving home up to arriving on the pool deck
- on pool deck
- in the pool
- leaving pool deck to heading home
