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.
