Lifeguarding: A Tough and Rewarding Job

Lifeguarding

The weather is warming up and everyone is preparing for the summer heat. The pools and beaches will be full of people seeking to cool off, which means that pool managers will be out looking to employ Lifeguards. This begs the question why should you as an individual offer to work in a pool or beach as a lifeguard?

Lifeguarding is one of those jobs that involves much risk and therefore has earned its place in the history books. Those who take on this job may not receive much as payment compared to other fields but, they are assured that what they do is respected. They are also well trained and certified to join a group of other celebrated heroes and heroines who offered these services before them. No hard work goes unrewarded and because of their service to helping humanity, the work done by lifeguards never goes unrecognized.

Some of the world’s greatest men and women were lifeguards. For example did you know the 40th US president Reagan Ronald was a lifeguard? Also Hollywood Actors Jack Nicholson and Jake Gyllenhaal, were lifeguards. These great men offered their time and lives to keep others safe.

As a lifeguard, you will learn skills that will help you and others later in life.  Swimming lessons in Toronto, kids are taught first Aid and CPR techniques. How would it feel if you just saved someone from drowning?  Saving lives is the joy of every lifeguard. If you are that person who likes talking to new people or if you are bored at home and are looking for a new challenge why not look into starting a lifeguard course this summer? This just may be the opportunity you are looking for.

Not only is it a rewarding job but you will also burn body calories and have a great workout as you help the youngsters train and swim along with the students. At swimming lessons in Toronto the lifeguards are actively involved in all pool activities such as helping those who don’t know how to swim move to safety areas such as shallow depths and help them train. This movement in water helps strengthen their body muscles and ligaments.

Zodiac Swim School is proud to offer National Lifeguard Society Courses (NLS) at their Swim school where many certified lifeguards have successfully graduated from and we thank them for their dedication and work they do each day to keep others safe.
