Swim Lessons

Fitness Plus offers a variety of swim lessons throughout the year for all ages:

All instructors have been certified in lifeguarding and CPR. Classes feature low instructor-to-student ratios.

For more information about swim lessons, please call 573-331-3355.

Helpful Tips:

  • Swimmers should bring goggles if they have them and pick up towels at the Front Desk.
  • If your child is the opposite sex, you may use the Family Changing room at the end of the hall. Children over the age of two should not be in opposite gender locker rooms.
  • If a swimmer misses a class session, no make-up dates will be offered.
