British Swim School Expands Reach with Los Gatos Locations

The Nation’s Premier ‘Learn to Swim’ Provider Awards New Location in the Campbell-Almaden Area

LOS GATOS, Calif., May 19, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — British Swim School, the nation’s leading “learn to swim” franchise company, continues to rapidly expand its reach throughout North America with the opening of its newest franchise location in San Jose, CA, servicing the Campbell and Almaden areas. Lessons will be held at the 24 Hour Fitness Center at 6223 Santa Teresa Blvd. on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Gabriel Flores, who works in the tech industry, and Lorena Martinez, a pre-and post-natal yoga instructor and wellness entrepreneur, are the new owners of the latest British Swim School in the Campbell-Almaden area. Gabriel will be working more behind the scenes, while Lorena will take the lead on-site, working with students and instructors. Her work with moms and babies makes her a natural fit for this franchise.

“The fact that British Swim School transforms and saves lives through its local communitIes was a crucial factor for me when it came to choosing a franchise,” said Lorena.

“We’ve been exposed to two traumatic pool incidents involving kids,” Gabriel admitted. “We live twenty miles from the ocean, and pools are everywhere, and some people don’t know how to swim. We want to change that.”

For more than 40 years, British Swim School has been dedicated to teaching water survival skills by teaching infants, children and adults of all ages the skills needed for water acclimation, water survival, and stroke development. Its mission — ensure that every person, regardless of age or ability, has the opportunity to become a safe and happy swimmer.

Across the nation, eleven people die every day from unintentional drownings, with nearly 4,000 deaths occurring each year. Research shows that participation in formal swim programs, such as those offered by British Swim School, can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children who are most at risk for deaths caused by drowning. However, the risk of drowning isn’t limited to children: a Red Cross survey found that more than half of all Americans (54%) either can’t swim or don’t have the basic swimming skills needed to save themselves in the event of a water emergency.

Gabriel emphasized the importance of safety when he said, “Although our kids’ friends have pools, not all children or adults are proficient swimmers. Providing a service where our community can learn how to swim is crucial to us.”

“We’ve always been water people,” says Lorena. “In fact, Gabriel and I met wakeboarding. We’re super excited to open this summer.”

“We’re delighted to have Gabriel and Lorena as part of the British Swim School family,” said Ashley Gundlach, British Swim School President. “They’re dedicated to our mission of teaching survival skills and are a marvelous addition to our franchise.”
