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.
Everyone advised me against learning swimming as an adult but I took a chance with Veronique as my swimming-instructor and she proved everyone wrong. I am a BIG person and she made me overcome all my phobias and helped me learn. She is a really patient teacher and respects your limitations, and yet pushes you subtly to get out of your comfort zone. I am really happy that I found her and I highly recommend her as a swimming instructor for both kids and adults.The best part is she slips in a little bit of workout and Yoga tips into your swimming class, which helps you A LOT once you are in water and actually swimming :)

I have taken class with Rebecca for over 8 years. Her classes are full of spirit, laughter and soul. She is particularly wonderful at teaching alignment. I cannot imagine my yoga journey without her guidance. She is a fantastic teacher and person.
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!
We can't say enough about how great Natalie has been for my sons. They have accomplished great skills and confidence in the water. She is very patient, kind and pleasant. My boys have gotten really attached to her and trust her.
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!
Excellent swim instructor. I am a swim instructor, and I learned some new ways to teach swimming skills to students through Jean.
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.
My 4 yr daughter Athena was deathly afraid of water. Although she was defiant and a bit hard to handle coach Tay was able to get her to swim. Now my daughter is 5 and is on level 6! Learning backstroke!

Leandro has completely changed the way I exercise and the way I feel about my body... I can't say enough great things about him! I've been working out with him for a couple months. I've absolutely felt way more motivated as I start to achieve my goals but the best part is that I also became more energized for all my daily activities out of the gym after we made some adjustments in my nutrition habits. It's such a more positive experience that way!
Bari (Barry) was patient, kind, and experienced. His focus on safety was great. Bari was really detailed in teaching me, breathing techniques and new swimming strokes. He also taught my daughters, to be a confident and safe swimmers too! I highly recommend him for for all ages. For people how really want to learn how to swim this is you're guy!
