John Legend’s Swim Lessons with an Olympian is all that We Needed to See Today
John Legend is pushing his workouts to the next level, getting his blood flowing and his body moving because nothing comes close to a fun workout that you actually enjoy! Forget about hiking or SoulCycle, this 40-year-old crooner swears by swimming lessons given by none other than Mr. Ryan Lochte, the 12-time Olympic medalist, as they both are concentrating on ‘getting ready’ for the upcoming 2020 Olympics.
Legend captions his stories on Instagram- ‘Swimming with Ryan in the backyard’, which also features a video of Lochte and the singer taking a quick lap in his huge pool. The Grammy Award-winning singer jokes as he stands up after the lap, hands towards the sky in triumph, saying that he has made the 2020 Olympic team! Ryan, 34 and Olympic medalist admits that hanging out with an EGOT recipient is a great way to start his week!
Ryan posts on his Insta page that he has been swimming with Legend and helping him with some swimming tips and making him Olympics-ready. In January, John confessed taking swimming lessons along with his children, Luna and Miles, who learned swimming before he did. In February, he drew much encouragement when he first tweeted about taking swimming lessons after 35 years. He revealed on Twitter about his inability to swim and that this was his first swimming lesson since he was 5. Legend’s dad learned swimming when he was in his 60’s, clearly the singer is ahead of schedule.
Wife Chrissy Teigen, who we know can swim well, updated followers on John’s progress by posting videos of swim lessons in their backyard pool of their Los Angeles home. The tweets sparked a debate about more black people learning to swim. Many Olympic swimmers like Natalie Coughlin, Jessica Hardy, Simone Manuel, Maya DiRado, Kristy Kowal, and Lia Neal, among others, offered to teach him to swim. Now that’s an impressive line up of stalwart swimmers to have for instructors!
