The Fit Family Swim training ended yesterday after eight weeks.
Parents and children praised the training, which was held at California’s Mills College, in Oakland.
The training was tailored for families who wanted to get healthier and more active. At least one parent was required to attend, and parents were welcome to swim too. In addition to swimming training, the families received instructions on the importance of nutrition and regular exercise.
