Chris is very patient with kids, knowledgeable. Easily connected with 3 kids of different age so that it was kind of fun and enjoyable swimming lesson. Glad to have him as a swimming instructor.

So today was our third lesson with Chris. He is teaching my 5 and 6 year old grandsons which is a handful. One has no fear and one is very afraid. But Chris is amazing. Today the 5 year old took off his water wings and swam and dove down and got things off the bottom of the pool. Third lesson. It was in the shallow end of the pool but no matter. He can completely hold his breath and dive down. The six year old is more afraid of the water but he is jumping in the pool. Blowing bubbles with his face completely in the water and 100% more comfortable than when we started.

Details: Youth (6 - 12 years old) • No experience • Comfortable in water • Learn basic strokes • Become more comfortable in water • No, I would like the pro to suggest a pool • 45 minutes • At the pro’s location

Kris successfully changed my fear of water to one of eagerness. He taught me to tread water on the first lesson and I have hopefully been improving every since. I intend to continue until I'm comfortable swimming in the ocean.

I was going to go to boot camp but could not tread water or prone float , I also could not breast stroke.lol. So my wife helped search for a trainer. I met Chris and on the first day I was already breast stroking. His techniques are precisely effective. He practically shows you what to do and teaches you different ways to achieve the same result. He is fun to be around too. He lets you move at your own pace with a little bit of more commitment to yourself. By our second session 3days later after constantly practicing all he thought me, I could prone float and tread water. He is definitely a good teacher . I would recommend him to anyone that needs a trainer and wants results in quick time.

Details: Adult (18 or older) • Intermediate • Comfortable in water • Train for an event • Improve swimming technique • Yes, a pool that allows private lessons • 45 minutes • I travel to the swim instructor
