Episode 1: Taking The Plunge - Learning To Swim As An Adult

Taking The Plunge is about my experience of learning to swim aged 46. All my life I have been embarrassed at not being able to swim and I have decided to try and put it right. This series will explore what fears or barriers exist for people and how to overcome them.

We will hear from Olympians, psychologists and swimming experts about the benefits of adding swimming to your life skills.

I am learning with the support of Fusion Lifestyle, which was established in 2000. It is a registered charity on a mission to make sport and leisure facilities affordable and accessible to all.

Fusion works in partnership with local authorities and other public sector organisations to deliver choice and value for customers, helping them to live healthier and more active lives through over 85 sport and leisure facilities across the UK.
