enjoy= saving and being responsible for peoples loved ones, outside, no shirt.competitive pay.

dislikes= visor, sunglasses flying off and sinking to bottom of pool when training, and saving.

challenging? very, by way of physical testing and improvment, mental strength/stimulating tests.

Opportunities to learn? many opportunities, depends on where you guard, you maybe hired as a "shallow water" (4-5ft deep)guard, then prove yourself and your skills and be promoted to a "deep water"(6-10ft deep) guard, then continue up the food chain like any other job. the better you are, the better pay, position, and satisfaction.

what keeps me? knowing that i saved muliple human lifes and having one of the sexiest jobs. challenging in mental and physical strengths(REQ) annd for giggles...getta see girls all day son!!

spark notes:
saving ppl.
to much sunscreen.
very challenging.
many opp's for advancing in rank/title.
saving ppl.

the bad english= no sleep and typing in class

good advice: lifeguarding is not a job dude...its a lifestyle.
