    I underwent 5 months of solid bedrest in Cedars-Sinai Hospital due to losing my pregnancy & baby prior to term. I spent 5 frightening months in a special bed cranked UPSIDE DOWN. No walking to potty or shower, just pee in a bedside bucket and wash cloth cleanse. MUSCLE ATROPHY started to creep in from such long duration of not using muscles to move around. I never thought I'd get back in shape!!! Inez's Kick2Fit class & witty encouragement got me back in my jeans within 2 months and eventually back to "high school" weight, which I hadn't reached in 15 years! Since then, had baby girl #2 - endured total bed rest again - and with her HIGH ENERGY, SWEAT WRENCHING and FUN classes am back in my sexy ~ curvy ~ itty, bitty jeans!!

    I started working with rebecca when I was about 8 weeks prego (for the first time). With her teaching in class I grew into my pregnancy literally! I also did swim classes while I was pregnant with her and it helped me tremendously with feeling lighter and being able to walk without so much pain. She also created a beautiful community I have and go to for any and everything! Rebecca is a goddess, it is because of her I had not only an amazing pregnacy but birth experience and even post pregnancy she has been an amazing hep. She knows what to do and she does it best, I love her so much and I almost don't want to even share her lol! No really, having this super women in my life I couldn't be more fortunate. I'm so lucky to have met her, worked with her, connect with her, grow with her, the list goes on but at the end I always love her!

    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.

    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.

    Monica has taught multiple of my children how to swim. We keep going back to her year after year because she is so great with children and is an excellent swim instructor. She connects with the kids and they quickly trust her and love working with her. She's gentle but motivated, funny and patient, and truly cares about each of her students. We love her!!!

    Rhiana was helping my adult Freind learn how to swim.she has spent much of her life afraid of the deep end of the pool. In a matter of 30 minutes she had her jumping in the deep and and swimming a cross the pool. She also worked with my elementary aged daughters. She is amazing at setting a strong foundation so that who ever she is working with feels confident and string in their skill. I highly recommend her. I have also seen her work with special needs students. She has a special nick for that.

    I was a competitive swimmer for 12 years and played water polo for 2 years. I have been teaching swimming for 10 years to kids and adults. I've also been coaching a local high school swim team the last 3 years.


    I am a very fun person to be around, and I'm looking to share my passion for swimming with you. I only charge $5 an hour.


    I was a lifeguard, swim instructor, water polo coach and swim coach for the City of LA for 4 years. I love teaching people of all ages and skill levels how to swim and improve their abilities. I specialize in one on one lessons but group lessons can also be arranged with students of a similar skill level. I have a flexible schedule, but have no access to my own private pool. You will have to provide a location for the lesson and I will come to you.




    I have swam competitively, from grade school to high school, and I have also taught swimming since junior high to present. I know CPR and first-aid, and I am fluent in the American sign language. I teach from infants to adults and help and condition competitive swimmers, guide fitness-lap swimmers, teach fitness water aerobics, open-water swimmers, recreational swimmers, therapeutic swimmers, and help former swimmers.


    I have been a swimmer/ water polo player for most of my life. I love the joy that a child brings to the table and I love to be in the pool. With this combination I am very passionate about this job. I have been working with kids my whole life whether it be changing my little sister's diaper growing up, to the last two years teaching swimming to children in another practice. I know just about all the tricks to improve stroke mechanics and I know what to look for with a nice process to learn the skills, so the student is not overwhelmed with information. Also with the younger kids, I am very good at getting them comfortable in the water and having fun but making sure to teach safety as a priority. I am CPR&First Aid Certified.


    I have over 10 years' experience. I am always certified in CPR and first aid. I have worked at the YMCA, summer camps and private lessons and guarding.

    Hello. My name is John, and I have over 3 years of experience in teaching swim lessons. On top of that, I was a collegiate and high school swimmer.

    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.
