Living on an island it is essential that everyone, no matter what age, have an understanding of safety in and around water. Evolve provides a unique opportunity for all age groups to participate in structured swim programs that advance each person at any level. Evolve Functional Fitness has a heated 25 meter pool, with an additional learn to swim area, which will help provide a custom made teaching environment ideal for swim instruction.

Evolve Functional Fitness offers a wide range of pool use for the community, from a large lap pool where all ages can learn to swim, and children and adults compete, to water safety programs and field trips for schools.

Evolve Swim School develops strong, confident swimmers with careful instruction and repetition. Swimming also incorporates functional fitness to increase agility, balance, and strengthen muscles, with little stress on joints. Swimming is a smart choice to manage stress and weight. It improves sleep patterns, cardiovascular health, muscle tone and flexibility.

We work hard to ensure all our swimmers become comfortable in the water and have fun developing a foundation of water skills at any age.
