Learn to Swim with Bert Lozada Swim School

I learned how to swim when I was in high school but I have always been afraid to explore the deeper part of the pool. I'd often just stay at the corner of a 5ft pool just to make sure I don't drown.

One of my bucket list is to learn how to swim confidently so each year I'd hire someone to teach me or enroll in a swim class. All of those attempts were futile. I am still afraid to even put my head under water.

Today at Ace Water Spa in Pasig, I once again, for the 100th time tried to learn to swim with Bert Lozada Swim School. How was it? I'm amazed that in just an hour my phobia slowly vanished. Thanks to Coach Elleigh, I confidently learned the basics of swimming. Will I go back? Of course, yes!
