Pump and Swim

Teens learn to improve their fitness level while participating in an individual workout program in a weight room and pool environment. Participants will:
  • develop fitness goals in the areas of strength, cardiovascular fitness and flexibility, and learn to achieve them while improving self-image and confidence;
  • learn to exercise and safely use gym equipment;
  • acquire skills and knowledge to continue with a fitness routine on their own.
 
Each participant should:
  • be receiving services from an ErinoakKids physiotherapist;
  • be able to walk independently with canes, crutches or a walker, or, if using a wheelchair, must have independent arm movements to do exercises;
  • be able to follow instructions;
  • be able to participate and work in a group setting;
  • have active movement in arms and/or legs;
  • be able to maintain fairly good bench sitting balance (i.e., trunk and neck control);
  • be able to transfer independently or with one person assisting;
  • be comfortable in the water;
  • be medically stable (participants with a heart condition must have written consent from their physician).
  • All swimmers who are incontinent must wear pool pants.

Did you know that toddlers and young children like it when you get down to their level so they can see your face?  This tells them that you’re interested in what they’re doing and saying.  It makes it easier to interact with you.
