Nicole is teaching my 6 year old son to swim. Over 12 lessons he had made a great progress. My son is always looking forward to his practice. Nicole definitely has her ways with kids and is a great swimming trainer. We plan to continue our lessons.

I've been with Pammie for about 2 weeks now and I can't express the appreciation I have for her. I'm newer to Hawaii and haven't been able to make friends or really experience Hawaii yet, not to mention many of the things that I want to do I feel like I can't do yet because of the weight I want to lose. Not only am I getting what I need physically, but what I couldn't have possibly asked for but receive from her is the emotional support that makes me feel whole versus the treatment of "just another client" She works with me, listens to me, volunteers to take me out and we get to experience hiking and swimming and as long as I'm willing to put in the effort for her. Tell her what you want and she'll see that it's done. Want bootcamp sessions? Done. Want dancing sessions? Done. Want yoga/pillates sessions? Done. Want outdoor activities? Done. Want strength training and core exercises? Done. Want cardio fitness? Done. I've been to different gyms, had different trainers, dealt with different sales people and they've always looked at me like a shark ready to sink their teeth into me and milk me for all I'm worth financially. It's very rare to see someone in this industry with a real passion to help people and give them a shoulder to lean on while kicking your ass at the same time. It's been a long time since I've really respected having time for myself and she makes me look forward to our sessions and doing something for myself. To quote her: "Remember to squeeze your butt! 'cause if you don't, nobody will!" :)

    I requested the services of Mrs. Johnsen and unfortunately my schedule conflicted with hers. But, she was so nice as to push back her own schedule to accomodate mine at the drop of a hat. Im not the greatest swimmer in the world, so she let me know what strengths and weakness were within the first ten minutes and built training and a routine for me right then and there. At the end of the lesson I felt more in control and in-tune with the various strokes and what my body needed to be doing to achieve my goals. Im a little stubborn with instruction but her teaching skills proved to overcome that. I would HIGHLY recommend her to ANY level of skill from learning to swim to an off-season olympian. I will reschedule many classes with her in the future.

    I was very confident in her abilities and knowledge base; she seemed comfortable giving instruction with explicit feedback on how to improve. I enjoyed my lesson so much that I already scheduled my next workout with her. I highly recommend Chelsea for swim lessons/coaching!

      Miss Anna has been able to take my girls from scared of the water to confident and respectful of the water almost overnight! Not only do they love to swim, but they are safe and enjoy it. They started with basic water skills and advanced so quickly! She is well prepared, engaged at all times and really loves all the kids she teaches. I wish I'd found her sooner. Cannot reccomend Miss Anna enough!

      About

      A wonderful way to enjoy the ocean in a friendly nurturing environment. All swim classes are top-notch and priced affordably. A small group just returned from Tahiti where JJ gave mini lessons and encouraged participation in snorkeling tours. This is also a good outfit to learn swimming if you suffer from "water phobia". They will guide you every step of the way until you become a confident and proficient swimmer. Lessons are custom designed to meet your personal goals with emphasis on slow but steady progress without rushing or pushing an agenda.

      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.
