It's January, the month of resolutions. The month of pushing limits, stepping out of our comfort zones, and confronting old habits and fears.
At the Holland Aquatic Center, our staff is fortunate enough to be able to meet people who challenge themselves to meet new goals on a regular basis. Recently, one of our members, Martin VanStaalduinen, inspired us to start 2016 with determination.
A year ago, Martin did not know how to swim. He could not make it across the pool without flotation, fins, or assistance. Regardless, he decided it was time to teach himself how to swim.
His neighbor, Kin Nguyen, cheered him on and provided instruction and assistance. In addition, Martin said the HCAC staff "has been fantastic and very encouraging".
On January 12th, 2016, Martin achieved a major goal in his journey: swimming 25 yards completely unassisted. Way to go, Martin!
