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.
