4-years ago I asked Kim to teach me how to swim as I wanted to do a Sprint Triathlon. I could barely swim to the end of the pool. She told me to swim back to the other end the first day and I wanted to get out and walk back to the other end. From there, we did drills, worked on technique and most of all she worked on my confidence in the water. We did weekly training and I progressed. As we moved on she would get in the water with me to really see what I was doing to further improve my swim. October of 2016 I completed a full Ironman Triathlon. Completing the 2.4-miles swim portion was all possible due to her training. Kim brought me along slowly so I never had a setback or injury in my swim training. That was really important to me as I started to work with her when I was 49-years old. Great trainer, great positive attitude and as an experienced athlete she understands when to push you and when to back off to avoid injury.
I've known Julie for years, and when I started looking for private swimming lessons for my son, who has autism, I went to her to get recommendations for where I should take him. She said that she was hoping to begin working with people with special needs, and asked if we'd like to try her out with our son. Well, we couldn't be happier with our son's progress. Because of his disabilities, it is a slow process, but Julie is eternally patient, and he continues to become more confident in the water every week. I am no longer a nervous wreck every time we're near a pool or lake. My son looks forward to her lessons every week, eagerly. One day he came home from school and wanted his iPad. The battery was dead and if you know any kids on the spectrum, you know this is a recipe for disaster. I told him that we needed to get ready for swimming lessons with Julie and immediately he lit up and forgot all about the iPad. He was goin' swimming with Julie!
Name: Angella Carlos Age: 22 Reason for beginning personal training: To have a more aesthetically pleasing body for dance, build strength and stamina, and learn gym exercises/training program that would help me achieve these. What you liked about Drew’s training methods: I liked how he motivated me during the times when my body felt like giving up. It was important to me because I tend not to push myself past my limits when I workout. I also appreciated how he constantly gave me comments/feedback during or after each set of exercises. I was able to correct myself right away or at least become more conscious of my form while doing the exercises. Moreover, the progression of the program was paced very well and I felt myself improving with every session. The repetition and variation of exercises were effective in building consistency and strength, and the addition of new ones made it fun and more challenging each time. What you learned during your personal training: The whole training method that I was given was the biggest lesson learned. Through it I got to know my body more, what my strengths and weaknesses are when it comes to working out. This awareness has taught me what exactly I need to work on so I could target those and be more efficient when I go to the gym. Any other thoughts you would like to include: I would recommend Drew to anyone who would like to improve on their fitness and become more confident in their bodies. It was a great experience working with him!
Great instructor, very professional and friendly! My son was not comfortable with water but instructor made it all seem like game and son was able to relax and have fun.
Best swim instruction in Minnesota! Kids as young as 3 years old learn to swim actual strokes! Much improvement from getting tied up in noodles and doggy paddling that we experienced at the Y. My 6 yo has been taking them for 3 years. She confidently swims the front crawl, backstroke, elementary backstroke and breaststroke!
I love Griffin lol! He's such a great instructor and makes me feel comfortable in the pool. After a traumatic accident, I was terrified to go in the deep end or even attempt to swim across the pool. But that has changed a lot this past few weeks. It really helps that he is patient while providing constructive feedback on my form and speed. Thank you Griffin! :D
This is our first experience with swimming lessons and it's been AMAZING! My 4 year old daughter wouldn't put her face in water. But on her first class she was going under and putting her face in. Since than every class she gets more confident and excited to try new skills. I would recommend this class if you want your child to learn to swim and have confidence in their abilities!
Maria makes those she teaches feel very comfortable. She is knowledgeable, experienced, and cares deeply about making sure both children and adults are aware of how to be safe around the water.
For me it's a honor to share my knowledge and love of the water with other. I get to see students gain confidence in themselves and pride in what they are learning.
I teach private adult and/or youth swim lessons, so they learn to balance in the water without exerting too much energy. Swimming is a lifelong skill which will give you peace of mind in the water. I also train triathlon for the swim portion of the race.
I teach swimming lessons to people of all ages. From simple water safety to competitive swimming, I can teach it all.

Do you or your child need help learning to swim, or maybe you already swim but would like help perfecting your technique? My name is Traci, and I teach swim lessons to all ages in Brooklyn Park, MN. Swimming is an amazing sport and has always been a huge part of my life. I swam competitively from ages 8-18 and participated in many State and Zone meets for club teams. I also swam at the State meet in High School for Wayzata, and was captain of the Park Center Swim Team my senior year. I currently swim with I SWIM, a "Masters" swim club. I have done lessons for the past 11 years, and am now coaching for a swim club in Eden Prairie. I am a LVL 1 Certified Swim coach, and my CPR/AED and First Aid are up to date. I love helping people learn to feel comfortable in the water; whether it be for safety, or for sport. Please contact me if you are interested in either!
