xav facebook post
“Since lockdown we have been partaking in the Fit Lab element of Swim Lab International and for us, it’s been a life saver.  Xav is normally moving around and partaking in swimming during the week so when the lockdown came in, we struggled to keep him moving and exercising in the right way….. Enter Fit Lab… our knights in shiny armour!
They wrote and delivered a continuing course that would not only enable Xav to continue with the strength needed for the swimming bit also to stop his muscles, ligaments and tendons shortening or stiffening, which is a huge problem.

The online delivery is personal to the client and they adjust as they go if this is needed, its fully interactive and its fun.  Paul always explains the what’s and why’s and how this will help in the long run.  Xav looks forward to these sessions and Paul gets a lot more out of him than I can!

If you are thinking but are unsure… take the step and you won’t regret it”.

All sessions are delivered via our online platform which does not require you to add any software, type in passwords or any log in details. All you require is a video playing device with camera and a strong internet signal.

Once we send out an appointment to you, all we ask is that you complete the form in the email prior to your session and our team will be ready to work with you shortly.

‘I can’t do it’ or ‘together we can’

I wonder how many times we have heard that phrase this week already! The way we are all feeling at the moment, I am sure we all feel like saying it over and over to every situation we are presented with. During therapy sessions often clients are fast to jump on the go to statement of “I can’t do it”. Let’s think about it, can you really not do something or is it a gut reaction which is presented from fear of the unknown or from the thought of trying to achieve and failing?

During our therapy sessions we aim to challenge our clients either in person or virtually but only through guidance and knowing that they can achieve the activity or exercise. Sometimes we have to back track and go about the exact same exercise just delivered in a different way. Other times we have to break the exercise down into smaller parts, reassure the client and build them back together piece by piece, similar to a jigsaw puzzle. Ultimately we get there when changing our approach.

‘I can’t do it’ should be replaced with ‘together we can’. Together we should be able to navigate any situation to allow our clients the opportunity to develop and learn new skills. Our fantastic team have a trick up their sleeve to be able to adapt situations in a blink of an eye. 

Clients either build up a fear related to something they have had a negative experience with or something that they have often thought about without actually having experienced it yet. 

Our top 5 tips for changing

‘I can’t do it’ into ‘together we can’

  1. Break down the activity or exercise into smaller manageable parts or points

  2. Remain positive about situations even if not yet achieving the desired outcome

  3. Change tact, if your not getting what you need. Think how you can adjust it

  4. Manage expectations through motivation knowing they can do it

  5. Little and often repetition is key but only in small bursts.

We have recently began conducting Virtual therapy sessions for our clients and the feedback from families has been outstanding. If you haven’t had your FREE virtual session with us yet, please get in touch through the form here. 

Together we can! #togetherwearestronger

Thinking to book for 2021? All you need to know

Wow, we cannot believe it is that time of year again. Ready to begin a new year with Swim Lab International disABILITY Development weeks spread out across the world. As our team and services expand we have to recognise change and develop in order to achieve our strategic outcomes. “Assisting and supporting as many families as possible”. 

In order to do this our focus has to switch slightly to providing our core services in Lanzarote and building our team of professionals to be able to deliver additional weeks in various locations. 

Therefore our Lanzarote based team will not be delivering weeks externally but instead continue to provide weeks in Lanzarote and deliver training and development programmes to our expanding team through Swim Lab Academy. That way we can maintain our high standards and reach more families who need our support. #togetherwearestronger 

IMG_3751

On Monday 6th January 2020 at 00.01 our booking system will open. This will allow you to select only Lanzarote dates for 2021 across both training centres. When booking please remember the following information for selecting training centres as Swim Lab International will adjust your booking if you have selected the incorrect training centre*. 

Training Centre Two:

This is our new centre in Puerto Del Carmen more information about this centre can be found here. This centre is for all clients including those who are wheelchair users, limited in mobility and unable to climb stairs. The only acceptation to this is for those who are competitively registered swimmers swimming under International Swimming Registration (you will be placed in TC1 with adaptations to facilities made). 

Training Centre One:

This training centre in Puerto Del Carmen will only be used for competitively registered swimmers swimming under International Swimming Registration. This is due to limitations of lane usage, staffing scheduling along with adjustments in facility usage.

If you have previously booked with Swim Lab International we will do all that we can to place your sessions with the same members of the team as you have worked with previously but this is not always possible*.
