Scott is a great swim instructor. I could barely swim before and in just a couple of weeks, I'm swimming laps. I still have a ways to go to be 100% comfortable in water but I'm getting better after every session. Scott also provides great recaps of our drills and what I can improve on after every session. He also reviews videos of me swimming and is able to provide actionable suggestions on how to improve in between sessions. I highly recommend Scott for adults learning to swim proficiently and also for people looking to swim recreationally at a high level because I'm swimming 10x better than when we started a few weeks ago.

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.

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.

    Exactly what you need and then some in a very supportive, chill environment. I have been working with Conrad Sherby. I started occasionally with him 3 years ago at the big, shiny gym (that I still appreciate). If you continue to take Conrad's suggestions on a regular basis, you can make real progress, injury free, in multiple physical and mental facets. The guy is extremely mature, educated, worldly and is helpful on many levels. Most importantly, he LISTENS to what you want to achieve. He seems to like clients who have had injuries, or difficult biologies, and to work with them to make them more successful than they thought they could be. I have never felt judged by him if I don't do what I agreed to. I just know I will not reach my goals in the anticipated time if I don't deliver. My main problem is to make myself work as hard when I am on my own as paying a trainer for more than a couple of times a week is not realistic. Some advantages of Conrad are that he has a strong background in nutrition not just in exercise physiology and he can help with swimming off-site if you make arrangements. At the facility, I recognize a lot of the trainers as the better ones from other local facilities. My observation is there are all levels of clients from teenagers working out their excess testosterone to much older people looking to maintain their health. The environment is very relaxed and respectful. Plenty of equipment but of the weights, cables, balls, kettle bell variety. It doesn't have lots of single muscle LifeFitness or Nautilus equipment as that is not their approach. Functional, multi-muscle exercises is the philosophy. You don't pay a facility fee; you pay what you work out with your trainer. The facility is covered. It is extremely clean. There are bathrooms that double as a changing area but there is no shower. It is not a spa type gym. It's a training/workout place that smells nice and is clean and well equipped. I like my time there and have lots of respect for Conrad and am impressed by the other trainers I see working with their clients.

    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!

    Anna was my son's swim coach in Menlo swim and sport. My son had taken swim lessons elsewhere in the past. We were not too happy with them. Our first coach in Menlo swim wasnt too impressive either. But, Lindsey, the manager there recommended Anna to us stating that Anna is a very patient and skilled coach. She was indeed right. My son learnt a lot from her in a very short period of time and he improved vastly. I'd highly recommend her if you are looking for someone to coach your child.

      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!
