Master Swim class sounds intimidating, but Howard convinced me it was for all levels. He encouraged me to try it. With only a 30-minute swim lesson taken months prior, and years of swimming incorrectly with my head above water, I began Master Swim. I watched the other “real” swimmers, and assumed I would never be able to swim like them. Howard made me feel comfortable. He taught me how to swim in a way I could understand. Now, I can swim freestyle, turning my head side to side, which I thought was impossible. Howard also taught me the breast stroke and back stroke. I can swim over 1,000 yards. He was close to convincing me to participate in a triathlon, until I injured my knee. Howard is a true Master of Swim! He taught me an exercise/sport I will be able to do forever.
