Woman Keeps Fit During Lockdown By Swimming In Paddling Pool

Woman Keeps Fit During Lockdown By Swimming In Paddling Pool

A swimmer has come up with a technique to keep herself fit during lockdown, by tethering herself inside a paddling pool in her back garden.

Jennie Jones is so dedicated to the sport, she has started to attach herself to her garden fence before climbing into the paddling pool that she's put up outside her house.

The 41-year-old, from Bradford-on-Avon, Wilts, is still able to swim as she would if she was still working her day jobs as an open water coach and personal trainer at her business 'BOAfit'

She's posted it online for all to see.

Jennie said: "My life is swimming. I'm a member of my local swim club - BOA ASC - so swim with them three times a week, then teach seven sessions a week, then swim a couple of times in open water now it's warmed up a bit.

"Basically, I spend most of my time in the water. I've messed around with tethering before in a small hotel pool. When lockdown was announced, I knew that this was the way to go to get my swim fix.

"My husband measured me up and researched the best pool and then we started the work in the garden to get it in - had to move a few plants and do some digging, but it's totally worth it for my mental and physical health. I feel very lucky to have been able to do it.

Swimming pools and gyms have all been shut down after lockdown was announced, in a bid to halt the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, but that hasn't stopped people from getting creative as they seek to keep up with their hobbies.

One golf fan was so devastated by the lack of sports at the moment, that he decided to turn misery into magic by creating his very own 'Mini Masters' course in his back garden.

Sam, a teacher, told LADbible: "I had the idea in my head for a week or so when lockdown began, but was not sure if my fiancée would approve of the idea. However, after designing the course layout on my iPad she approved and gave me the green light to go ahead!"

We might be in testing times, but people are really powering through.
