Former Olympic swimmer Becky Adlington has launched her official BabyStars swim programme in Altrincham.
The parent and baby programme is now available for children aged 0-3 at Total Fitness Altrincham.
The Becky Adlington’s BabyStars programme forms part of the wider SwimStars programme, launched by the double Olympic gold medallist herself back in 2013.
It gives children aged 0-3 the chance to become confident in water, learn important early skills, bond with their parents and grow into happy, safe swimmers.
The programme is made up of six age groups for babies and toddlers, each based around a popular children’s book.
Through lessons with a parent or dedicated ‘swim buddy’, the programme focuses primarily on building confidence, water safety and independence, with instructors providing step-by-step guidance on how to hold, support, and move with your baby while in the water.
Adlington said: “As a mum myself, and with my youngest born only in March, I’m so passionate about getting babies in the water and developing their swimming skills from a young age.
“Now that pools are open again, I’m a firm believer that getting babies confident in water right from the start is great for preparing them for later life, and I’m excited to be launching our programme for the babies of Altrincham.”
Sophie Lawler, CEO at Total Fitness, said: “Becky and the team at BabyStars and SwimStars are perfect partners for our members and guests at Total Fitness. We’re really excited to strengthen that partnership with such a great new service.”
