Nadia is a great swim coach who is able to adapt her teaching style and drills to swimmers of all levels. When I first started training with Nadia, I was a very capable swimmer (had already completed a sprint triathlon), but was training for a much longer race and wanted to improve my technique and endurance. Nadia's drills & tips with just a handful of sessions took me from swimming 15-20 laps at speed to now being able to over 60 (thank you Nadia!) Would highly recommend her for both novice/beginner-level swimmers, as well as experienced ones looking to take their abilities to the next level.

Nadia is an amazing instructor. I almost drowned as a child and was very hesitant to take up swimming again. Nadia made everything so effortless and safe for me to be in water again. I can't thank her enough. Her technique is great and I would highly recommend her for any level whether you are just starting out or want to improve your form and technique. Today I can do laps :-)

I've been taking swimming lessons for years now and I still couldn't overcome my fear of the deep end. Thanks for Nadia, I feel more confident in the deep end. With all the patience in the world, she taught me different swimming techniques to help me feel more comfortable and prevent me from panicking. I highly recommend her.

Ed is awesome. I have taken many swimming lessons in the past. Trying to learn swimming-on and off- for the past many years. With Ed, in three sessions, I have seen great difference in my learning curve. What I failed to learn in past so many years, he was able to efficiently teach me in three sessions. I have been progressing with him in every session we meet. I am so glad I found him. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn swimming.

Ed had been an excellent swimming instructor for my 6 year old son. My son made quick progress on essential techniques that would other wise take much longer to learn. Ed is very friendly, on one occasion when he arrived late due to traffic, he teach the class without charging, a nice gesture to show professionalism. Thanks, Youwei

Mark responded to my original enquiry extremely quickly. He has been fantastic teaching both our 6 and 12 year old. They love the lessons. He manages to make the lessons fun while also teaching them a variety of skills and techniques relevant to their level of swimming. Mark is reliable and always on time.

Mark has been teaching me to swim. He's super patient, encouraging, and, thus far, willing to demonstrate techniques repeatedly :) He is flexible with his schedule and a great instructor. Given the opportunity, I'd refer anyone wanting to learn how to swim to him.

As a personal trainer for my 16 year old swimmer, Matt has provided outstanding guidance and training. He is thorough and provided tremendous insight for her training and performance. His complete view of nutrition, exercise and training tips has made it a very favorable experience for her. He is consistently on time and works with her schedule. I would highly recommend him as an Athletic Trainer.

My friend and I hired Matt to teach my 2yr old and her 1.5yr old basic swimming at our home. He was wonderful with them and at the end of the summer my son was comfortable going under water, blowing bubbles and floating on his back. I would recommend him and hope to have him come back next summer.

My experience with Workout with Wes was great. He was very professional and had a high standard for himself for work quality. Wes helped me stay on track with my nutrition, diet, and helped me get back in to shape. The workouts were great and I always felt like I was getting closer to my goal each day.
