Mariona is phenomenal in every way. She is incredibly patient, paying attention to all the details that will surely accelerate the pace of your mastery of swimming. Amazing attitude, and her cheerful disposition makes class go by very quickly. We covered much more than I expected in my first class. I immediately signed up for a package, which are very reasonably priced, to ensure my form will be perfect as I practice the technique under her expert instruction.

Details: Adult (18 or older) • Beginner • Comfortable in water • Learn basic strokes • No, I would like the pro to suggest a pool • 45 minutes • At the pro’s location

Beyond swimming, beats the rest, and excels at everything swimming. I’ve tried two different swim coaches through thumbtack, and have had a few coaches elsewhere. Mariona took me from being a beginner level swimmer to an intermediate level swimmer in record time. Before lessons, I was uneasy in the deep end, and unable to tread water correctly, my swim strokes also had okay technique but suffered from poor body position and sinking legs. Mariona fixed all that and more and now I can actually use swimming as my cardio exercise and truly tread water in the deep end with complete control. I went from struggling to get 200 meters to being able to do a workout of up to 1500 meters in one session! Which to me is nuts! I highly recommend Beyond Swimming to anyone looking to learn the basics or take their swim routine to new levels!

Mariona is simply amazing. She teaches our 3 and 8 year old. She is an absolute professional and knows exactly how to coach and get your kid responding. Our 3 year old responded instantly to her and she has her learning water safety and some early swim skills which is an absolute must here in south Florida. She has the perfect blend of disciple, focus and fun which in turn gets your child to truly focus on the task at hand. She is a total gem. Thank you, M!

Details: Young child (18 months - 5 years old) • No experience • Comfortable in water • Learn basic strokes • Yes, a pool at my home • 60 minutes • My home, venue, etc.
