First of all, the best thing about her lesson was showing me how much fun it is to swim in open water. Luckily I had Suzies private lesson to introduce me to swimming in AP. She taught me the basics, such as how to enter the water and be at ease in a cold water. Also, she gave me clear, practical advice for my goal of swimming from Alcatraz: starting from a boat entry, directions to AP, pacing, and coping with cramps, choppy water, etc. She always provides encouragement, as well as tells me how to improve. As a beginner, I learned many techniques in a short time, but more importantly she teaches how great open-water swimming is! Thank you, Suzie.
I had my first swim lesson with Veronique last Friday and she was lovely. She is very focused and professional, but she also brings a child-like sense of fun to the physical challenges of swimming. As people have mentioned, she does the first half of the lesson in the air and the second half in the water. It's interesting to translate the physics of open-air efforts into the water. I have my second lesson tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to it.

Scott has been training me at the YMCA for my first triathlon. Since it is my first one and I don't know anything, he has been super helpful. He is very knowledgable about body mechanics and form on the bike, running, swimming and strength training, which is helpful in improving your performance and in preventing injuries. Scott is also has a deep understanding of nutrition and how that helps your training. He is also very friendly and helpful with any questions.
Alyssa is a great swim teacher. In one summer, she transformed my four year old son from someone who was afraid to even enter the water to someone who loves cannon balling into the swimming pool. She focuses on safety skills and makes the class fun for the kids. Highly recommend!
Charles is an excellent swim coach. He zeroed in on what I really needed to improve to help my technique, and helped me feel more comfortable in the pool. Highly recommended hiring him as your swim coach!
I have been taking adult swim lessons for the past few months and have been very pleased with Maggie as my instructor. She customized the learning to focus on not only swimming efficiency, but also techniques that are critical for when I am in the ocean body boarding. Maggie very good at explaining the how and why and provides good practice tips. The prices are very fair and the ambiance makes you feel like you at ease. It never feels like you are rushed and they also allow practice when there are no lessons.
Excellent swim instruction for my 5.5 year old. Very technique oriented yet in a fun and friendly way. She won't learn any bad habits and is learning the strokes in the proper manner. My daughter can not wait to go back for swim lessons every week!
Awesome coach and person! My son loved the instructions and he lost the fear of water.!!! Highly Recommended.

I've been swimming with Fana for over five years now and she's awesome! This isn't your standard drill and kill group. She works on stroke technique to help avoid injury and mixes up the strokes to keep the workouts interesting. As a result, my swim times are faster and I haven't missed workouts due to sore shoulders etc.
