"I was over 60 years old and thought I was a swimmer. The YK Fitness Center and Pool opened and I saw that people swam with their head under the water. I swam with my head out of the water and could do laps. Determined to learn to swim with my head under water, I asked other swimmers what to do and signed up for an adult swimming class. It took practicing 3- 4 times a week for two months to become comfortable taking a breath and putting my head under water. Then I learned to do laps and worked on it for a couple more months. Fast forward one year: I swam 36 laps (a mile) at a time and was very comfortable swimming with my head under water and switching sides to take a breath. To celebrate I decided the next step was to get my PADI diving card. I finished the open water portion of the course in July 2016 and am now certified to dive. Now I plan to go to Roatan on a diving trip. It is never too late to learn to swim. It was a lot of baby steps for me to get my head under the water but the reward is so worth it. I find swimming is a lot of fun, good exercise, and burns a lot of calories. I look forward to it." - Judy Wasierski
