Flagler Beach, FL (August 30, 2022) – Former Fitness One Gym across the street from Old Kings Elementary School is transitioning to AQUAfin Swim School, North Florida’s premiere swim school led by two-time Olympian Nimrod Shapira. The facility at 250 Old Kings Road South, Flagler Beach, FL 32136 is anticipated to open October, 2022. This will be the swim school’s fourth location in Northeast Florida.
With a minimum of 10 drownings in the U.S. each day, this facility will not only bring more than 30 jobs to the community, it will provide a family-friendly environment to teach countless children to be safer around the water. “When I was seven years old, my uncle saved me from drowning,” said Founder Nimrod Shapira. “The statistics for drowning in the U.S. are overwhelmingly high, especially here in our sunshine state where we are surrounded by water. I want to play an active part in lowering these statistics and make Florida’s communities safer to live in.”
The state-of-the-art facility will have a heated indoor pool and high-quality purification system to provide year-round lessons, seven days a week, rain or shine. Lessons are progress-based starting with a 1-instructor-to-4-student ratio as young as two months old, with parent and tot classes (1:8), and go up to adult.
Now through the end of September, AQUAfin is offering a Pre-Opening AQUAfin Founders Special for the first 50 registrants who purchase a 3, 6, or 12 month package. The annual registration fee ($35) for the first year will be waived and registrants will receive a free swimming cap and pair of goggles.
