Eric helped me increase strength and muscle mass, which I never imagined was possible. He was able to work around my back issues and work schedule. Before meeting him, I suffered from various back aches and pain. Through his exercise program and workout schedule, the aches and pain significantly decreased. He was able to work around meeting between the gym and pool. I am most grateful for him teaching me how to swim and getting me over my water fear. never thought I would ever learn how to swim! Every session had its challenges, but they were always fun. Words can not express my graditude to Eric!

This is our third summer using Denise for swimming lessons for my daughter, almost 4, and my son, 13 months just started with her as well. She's done a great job personalizing her approach. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and has come a long way in the pool. I'm so grateful to have found her, and I've recommended her to friends who've also been pleased with her service.

My wife and I are very happy with the results of our daughter working with Kristine. We were referred to her by another parent at the preschool. Kristine has been working with our daughter twice a week for 3 weeks now and we already see improvements. Before, our daughter was terrified to go into the water without her floaties but now she feels confident enough to swim on her own without being afraid. We will continue for the rest of the summer. We highly recommend private swim lessons from Kristine.

Marcus has been my trainer for almost 4 yrs. My initial goal with him was to learn kickboxing as a beginner. During this journey, Marcus has taken me beyond any goals or aspirations I had imagined. He has expanded my learning from just kickboxing techniques to cardio and strength training. I am not a fighter; I take kickboxing lessons to learn something new. Marcus challanges me both physically and mentally. It is not just a physical workout, he also teaches me to strive to accomplish things I never knew I could do. Marcus has both the education and experience to be a great trainer. He knows how to customize learning techniques to each individuals needs. You will not just get a great workout, but you will achieve a sense of accomplishment.

Eugene is very nice and easy to work with, I highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn how to swim no matter what your age or level is. Eugene has a great balance between strict and nurturing that children need. His approach really helped my son to build his confidence which I think is half the battle to get anyone swimming. I recommend him to anyone looking for swim lessons.

Working with Prinal for two adult swimming lessons was a solid experience. Anastasia was early for our appointment & as soon as she walked in she puts you at ease. The lesson was fun, informative & more of a workout than expected. My friend & I both workout on a regular basis & this lesson was a bit of a workout in itself. Looking forward to more 🏊‍♀️ lessons!

You know that excited feeling you had when you were a kid when you got to go swimming? That's how I feel when I get to take an Aqua X Fit class. The water offers resistance no matter which way you move, and Chris Kaifos brings fun, energy, and variety to every class. Chris teaches the how and why for new routines and I often learn something new. I highly recommend this class!

My 3 year old loves the water, but it takes him rather long to warm up to new people. My husband and I were both incredibly surprised when we saw how well he concentrates during his lessons. He made such good progress and, more importantly, he has a lot of fun. When we take him to the pool to play now he is actually disappointed when Miss Joanna isn't there to teach him... You can tell that she has a lot of experience and passion for the sports and knows how to inspire even the little ones. I highly recommend her.

Katie tailored my private yoga lessons to alleviate symptoms of my chronic autoimmune disorder. She is patient, sympathetic and, most of all, kind. She listens actively and asks great questions -- her ability to communicate well greatly enhanced my experience with her.

I hired Dana to give swim lessons to my 6 yr old daughter. At first, my daughter was afraid to go in the deep end of the pool, but by the end of the first lesson Dana had taught her to swim! Dana is sweet, nice and patient and really knows how to instruct kids learning to swim. I would highly recommend Dana and we were so pleased with the lessons she provided.

    Mr. Austin has been a very important milestone in my knowledge of the game. After only 3 lessons, I saw a 60% improvement in my abilities and an 80% improvement in my score. He has proven his years of expertise and the ability to impart that knowledge almost effortlessly. Very highly recommended.

    It was great to find a swim instructor to come to my home for private swim lessons for my young boys. What a great service! Andrew is very knowledgable and communicates well with children. He is very polite, punctual, willing to be flexible with scheduling, and has a very reasonable hourly rate. I would highly recommend Andrew for swim instruction. We are looking forward to the service again next summer. M.E., New Brighton, MN

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    At what age should you start swim lessons?

    From 6 months to 96 years old, no one is too young or too old to benefit from swimming lessons. Once your baby is six months old, they are eligible to take “parent and me” swimming lessons from most swim schools. When babies are between six months and several years, you or another guardian must be with the baby throughout the entire lesson for safety reasons. Even if babies can’t walk, they quickly adapt to moving in water, so familiarizing them early means more fun for everyone and keeps them from being afraid of water later on. It also helps with water safety and drowning prevention. As for adults and seniors, it’s never too late to start swimming. Knowing how to swim can not only save your life, it provides an impact-free way to safely exercise and keep muscles and joints limber. Swimming can even help relieve pain from chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most swimming schools offer group or private instruction, so if you’re shy about learning a new skill, you can do so one-on-one.

    Why are swimming lessons important?

    Swimming lessons have major health and safety benefits, not to mention the fact that swimming is really fun. Here are some of the many reasons swimming lessons are important:

    • Life saving: Knowing how to swim can help you save your own life or the life of someone else. Prevent drowning by learning to swim.
    • Improved health in seniors: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that water-based exercise can decrease disability and maintain bone density in seniors.
    • Good mental health: Swimming can improve moods in both men and women, according to the CDC. Swimming can help with depression, can create bonds in families and can promote mental wellness in pregnant women.
    • Arthritis relief: Water-based exercise can ease joint and other physical pain in people suffering from arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
    • Whole-body workout: Swimming works all your muscles — without the impact of a sport like running.
    • Water safety: It’s important for swimmers of all ages to learn about water safety. Swim lessons provide the proper pool and water etiquette to help keep everyone safe and having fun.  

    How much are swimming lessons?

    Not only is swimming fun, but knowing how to swim can save your life by preventing drowning. The average national cost for swimming lessons ranges between $40 and $50. Swimming lessons can vary in price depending the type and length of lesson you select. Private swimming lessons, where you receive one-on-one coaching with a swim instructor, will cost more than group lessons. The longer the lesson, the more it will cost. Swimming lessons are available for people of all ages, so if you’re an adult just learning to swim there are beginners’ classes suitable for you. There are also advanced classes for adults who are training for races or want to hone their skills. Pricing can vary depending on where you live as well as the amenities offered by the pool. For example, a pool with private locker rooms and a hot tub may have higher rates than a basic swimming pool. Here are some examples of the average costs of adult swimming lessons:

    • Private lessons for adults:
      • 30-minute lesson: $35-$50.
      • 60-minute lesson: $55-$80.
    • Group lessons for adults:
      • Ongoing 60-minute lessons: $90-$110 per month.
      • 60-minute drop-in lesson: $25-$40 each.

    How do you prepare for infant swimming lessons?

    There are several steps you can take to prepare both yourself and your baby for the exciting adventure of infant swimming lessons. Start by introducing your baby to being in the water via the bathtub. There are no immunizations specific to swimming that your child needs before playing in a public pool, but do research to confirm the pool is well-maintained and has a clean bill of health. You’ll need the right swim gear; proper attire can include swim diapers and protective swim pants. Be prepared to check regularly and change soiled diapers as needed. The CDC warns against allowing your child in a public pool if they have any symptoms of diarrhea; swim diapers and swim pants can’t protect against transmission of germs in this case. For outdoor pools, apply water-resistant sunscreen to the delicate skin on your baby’s face and body approximately 30 minutes before pool time to prevent burns. For the health of your baby and other children, it’s important for your child to be in good health when attending swim lessons. If they have a cold or fever, it’s better to keep them home. Finally, be prepared to have fun.

    How early can babies start swimming?

    Most swimming instructors and swim schools offer infant swimming starting at six months. Although it is not formal swimming, the lessons familiarize your baby with moving in the water, and also teach you the basics of keeping your baby safe in the water. You or another guardian will stay with the baby in the water throughout the entire lesson.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend formal swim instruction until one year old, but taking your infant to regular swim class can be fun, safe and helpful for developing baby’s coordination and awareness of water. Experts urge parents not to become overconfident in their children’s water skills. Keep in mind that most children aren’t really able to swim on their own until they’re at least four years old. Even if they’ve had swim lessons, always watch younger children when they’re in the water and be ready to react in case of an emergency.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
