Mermaids are the things of legends, mysticism, and beauty. Every little girl grows up dreaming of becoming a mermaid, and now with the popularity of movies like Aquaman, so do boys. Those dreams stay with us as we grow older – the desire to be one with the water, moving gracefully and swiftly with the stroke of a single tail. Increasing popularity surrounding the mystical world of mermaids has brought the production of mermaid tails and fins main-stream. With SSI’s suite of Mermaid certification programs, becoming a true mermaid has never been easier!
There are many reasons to become a mermaid or merman; however, if you have never tried mermaiding before, we are listing our six top reasons to expand your love for the water by enrolling in an SSI Mermaid Training Program today!
Our top 7 reasons to join an SSI Mermaid Program:
Reason #1: Mermaid Swimming
Swimming as a mermaid is one of the most graceful things you can do. You will find that much power exists within the single flick of your mermaid fin. Mermaid swimming is not only a fast and graceful way to explore the underwater world, but it is also great exercise. A mermaid fin is essentially a monofin, a single fin used in freediving that houses both feet. Using the dolphin kick required when utilizing a monofin not only works nearly every muscle group in your legs but is also a great cardiovascular workout. If you like to swim for exercise, mermaid swimming brings a new, fun aspect to what can sometimes become a monotonous activity.
Reason #2: Make New Friends
Joining a “mermaid pod” is not only really fun but brings many new friendships. A mermaid pod is what you call a group of mermaids, and once you take your SSI Mermaid course, you will find that many mermaid pods meet up regularly all over the world! If you are looking for a new, fun activity to make new friends and travel to new, exciting places, mermaiding is for you!
Reason #3: Look Graceful Underwater
With their long, beautiful tails, flowing hair, and undulating dolphin kicks, mermaids are one of the most graceful looking creatures in the water. Training to be a mermaid is a form of freediving where you will use a mer-fin and tail cover. Once you learn how to properly use your mertail in your SSI Mermaid program, you will be swimming with grace and poise underwater in no time. Mastering the art of swimming in mer-equipment is a rewarding challenge.
Reason #4: Mermaid Modeling
From mermaid make-up to what seems like unlimited choices of mermaid tails, living your mermaid fantasies is about as fun as it gets. By taking SSI’s Mermaid Model program, you will learn the best tips and tricks to modeling underwater as a mermaid. Mermaid photographs and videos make stunning images and fun memories.
Reason #5: Mermaid Skills
You may not have given much thought to the skill level involved in becoming a mermaid, but there are many fun skills to master in the art of mermaiding. In your SSI Mermaid program, you will learn many mermaid skills from blowing bubble kisses and bubble hearts to performing graceful summersaults and barrel rolls all while underwater. Every new skill you master increases your grace and beauty in the water.
Reason #6: Share Mermaiding With Others
The most fun a mermaid can have is sharing the fantastic world of mermaiding with non-mermaids. Watching the joy on someone’s face the first time they swim with a mermaid tail is a rewarding experience. SSI Professional Mermaid Instructors can have lucrative and unique adventures sharing the world of mermaiding at Try Mermaid birthday parties, conducting mermaid classes, and running Mermaid Modeling sessions. Take your mermaid adventures to the next level by becoming an SSI Mermaid Instructor.
Reason #7: Everyone Loves Mermaids
Our final reason to become a mermaid is the simple fact that everyone loves mermaids. Becoming a mermaid opens up a whole new world you didn’t even know existed. Being a mermaid allows you to participate in mermaid shows, mermaid events, mermaid meet-ups, and even mermaid conventions.
These are just a sampling of the reasons why becoming a mermaid is so amazing. Dive in and discover the fun, exciting world of mermaiding today by becoming an SSI Mermaid.
