For the first time ever, RTÉ’s Operation Transformation is teaming up with Swim Ireland to bring National Swim Day to the public tomorrow, Saturday February 1.
Taking part is easy, with over 50 local swimming pools around Ireland opening their doors to offer free swim sessions on the day - including Radisson Blu Synergy health and leisure, Radisson Blu, Athlone and Mullingar Park Hotel, Marlinstown, Mullingar.
Help will be on hand at each centre, in the form of swimming instructors between 2-6pm to ensure that everyone gets the most out of their session.
Speaking about Operation Transformation’s National Swim Day, Karl Henry, fitness expert for Operation Transformation said “Swimming is a universal sport. It’s suitable for everyone from toddlers to the elderly and you can work harder, and burn more calories, in a pool than out of it. It’s great for toning and cardiovascular activity and all you need to get started is a sense of fun and your swimsuit.”
So why not start spring with a swim this February and join in the fun on Operation Transformation National Swim Day!
