Fun Summer Courses at Bert Lozada Swim School

Summer is fast approaching and one of the things that you can enjoy during this season is to dip in the pool or visit the beach and beat the heat! Of course you need to be a good swimmer or at least you know how to swim. I confess to you my dear readers; I don’t know how to swim. Waahhh… Well, marunong ako ng unti pero yung abot lang ng paa ko yung floor pero pag hindi na, lunod ako for sure.
Rhian loves water! As in! We bought her mini pool where she can enjoy playing with waters. During our Boracay getaway, I noticed that she’s willing to learn how to swim kasi as early as 1 year old, we expose her in the water. So we decided that we should enroll our panganay in a swimming lesson, but due to our busy schedule nakalimutan na namin syang ituloy. Awwww.. Until I got an invitation from Mommy Bloggers Philippines and Bert Lozada Swim School to be part of their “BLeSSed at 60” event at AceWater Spa in Pasig. I was fortunate that my husband is joining with me on that day, at least tig isa kami ng anak sa pag babantay. We arrived early at the venue (well, kami nga pala ang early bird. Hehe), the employees of BLSS are very accommodating, they are knowledgeable about the programs they are offering, in fact we spend almost 30 minutes talking with them. :)

Bert Lozada Swim School (BLSS), the country’s largest swim institution, announced the programs and schedules for their 2016 courses that provide personalized and group teaching instruction to infants, children and adults through the Bert Lozada Swim System. The BLSS teaches water safety and survival techniques as well as helps conquer one’s hydrophobia. Under the Bert Lozada Swim System, every student surely acquires the basic skills in survival swimming. At BLSS, everyone can swim.

We got to personally meet the sons of the late Mr. Bert Lozada; Mr. Angelo Lozada, the Chief Operating Officer of BLSS, Mr. Anthony Joseph Lozada, CEO of BLSS and Mrs. Pepper Angeles – Lozada, BLSS Infant Aquatics Program Manager.

According  to Angelo,  “2016 is our 60th year and we are excited to welcome both old and new students into the Bert Lozada Swim System this summer in over 60 of our venues nationwide!” Wow! Congrats for BLSS! We were free to ask questions and they answer all the queries and explain in details. Look at the husband, he asked question about using floaters to the kids.  

After the discussion, it’s time for the photo ops session with the Lozadas, and right after that we were ushered inside the water spa where the free trial swimming lesson will be held. This is the first time I experience the water spa and I must say that I enjoyed it. Please take note of the rules and regulations; everyone must be wearing the proper swimming attire. A pandex-made swimming attire is strictly required to be worn when using the facilities. Bathing suit for female and fitted swimwear for male (No beach or board shorts please), please bring your own bath towel as well, if you forgot to bring towel, you can rent it at Php 150 each. No bringing of food and beverages inside the spa area.

Some Mommy Bloggers with Coach Pepper and Coach Angelo

I’m so happy that I witnessed how my kids participate in the class. This is another milestone for both of them and looking forward for more swimming lessons soon. Actually, we were thinking to enroll our panganay in the My baby and Me (Infant/Toddler) program since BLSS gave us Gift Certificate worth Php 2,000 course fee and Php 500 registration fee credit towards the BLSS swim module/s of our choice. Wow! Thank you BLSS for this wonderful gift.
