Tampa Swim Instructor Goes Viral With Mantra For Swimming Success
There’s a swim instructor in Tampa who just went viral for his amazing advice and mantra for his little swimmers.
Tyler Reed is the owner of Triton Aquatic Training in Tampa. He went on Good Morning America to talk about his “mermaid mantra,” which is a teaching tool he uses to help his students feel comfortable in the water.
Tyler said, “Especially for my little mermaids, I always say, ‘I’m big. I’m brave. I’m beautiful,’ and I have them repeat after me. I think a lot of people look at 2-year-olds and babies as children that are incapable of being able to swim or save themselves and I’m trying to kind of erase that psyche from them, that they can they really can do this.”
By the way, Tyler gave my daughters and nieces swim lessons. We LOVE him!
