Cherry Hill, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/09/2019 -- Marlton, NJ's top fitness center, Kennedy Fitness: A Jefferson Health Affiliate offers Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) classes to parents in South Jersey who want to teach their children fundamental swimming survival skills.
As it stands today, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children between the ages of one and four. Programs such as the ISR are designed to not only help children master basic swimming techniques, such as holding their breath underwater, but also teach them how to master self-rescue skills, such as turning onto their backs and floating unassisted.
Each ISR lesson, taught at the one of the seven Kennedy Fitness centers, is led by ISR-certified Instructors who focus on safe, one-on-one training that may be customized to match the abilities of each student. Furthermore, instructors use techniques and teaching methods that are developmentally appropriate for the child they are working with.
ISR is recognized as the leading behavioral-based approach to teach children, between the ages of six months to six years, ISR Self-Rescue® skills. Moreover, the Kennedy Fitness ISR program gives parents access to a worldwide network of certified instructors who have delivered more than 7 million safe lessons. According to the fitness center, there has been more than 800 documented cases of students saving themselves using ISR Self-Rescue® skills.
