The calm waters looked so inviting.

“You can do this!”

Her mantra for the last few months echoing in her head, Sandra padded softly to the edge of the pool. She wanted to slice her way through the water but could not allow herself to sink into the contaminated liquid. Her last attempt to fight her allergy had landed her in hospital for a few days.

The sound of women’s chatter and the splash of water roused her from her reverie.

“Morning everyone, welcome to your Aqua Fitness class. My name is Sandra and I will be your instructor today.”

    1. As an instructor, you do not go into the water. Instead you stand on the side and show the members (who are in the water) how to do the moves.


  1. If most knew and understood the chemical cocktails in pools, you’d never swim there again. Then again, you’d be safer swimming in a contaminated river most of the time.
