Extraordinary Trainers

    Extraordinary Trainers is not just a name of their group it describes each and every one of them. I have been training with Max Jones for over a year, and have had fantastic results. I am stronger, faster, have met and passed personal records, and on my way to a body I always wished I had. Max makes every workout specific to my needs and my goals. I think the one thing I like the best about training with Max and the Extraordinary Trainers is I never know what to expect each day. We don't just make rounds in the gym using the same machines. I met Max after I had already lost around 60 pounds. I may have lost weight on my own, but I was not as strong as I wanted to be. I now feel like an athlete. My confidence to take on athletic challenges has improved significantly. I am doing things in the gym that I would have never imagined doing. In the last year training with Max and Extraordinary Trainers I have run 3 half marathons, and now training for a triathlon. While training with Max he noticed that I had a left lateral hip deviation while in the downward phase of squatting. This is when I realized what a different type of group the Extraordinary Trainers were. Each and every one of them has worked with me to figure out different ways to correct my hip discrepancy. They have all taken their personal time to come and help me at the gym. That shows what professionals they are and how serious they take their career. When I have reached plateaus during weight loss they have all worked together to help me out, and figure out ways to break through the plateaus. Their certified dietician Dan Howell has also taken time to review my food journals, and find any tweaks he can see necessary to keep me on track with weight loss along with the proper nutrition I need for training. I have recently started going to Nancy Dickinson's swim clinics, and in 5 weeks I have gone from a casual/leisure style swimmer to being able to swim laps with a much improved technique. Nancy has a way of teaching swim that has really connected with me, and made me found a new love in swimming I never knew I had. Most of my time might be spent with Max and now some with Nancy while swimming, but I really feel as if I am training with an entire team of elite athletes and trainers.

    I had never taken a swimming class before, but Dustin was awesome. He provided really clear instruction and corrected my form when necessary. I didn't expect I would be able to get comfortable in the water in so little time since I've been afraid of water my whole life. So I definitely recommend booking swimming lessons with Dustin if you're looking for a great coach in the Las Vegas area.

    I've been taking classes with Santi for over a year now, I am a figure skater/acrobat at shows here in Vegas so I have to work on specific muscles for my shows. Santi made different exercises & routines that work for me. In the meantime I can have a great laugh which makes everything easier. The most profesional trainer I've had in years. He also has a lot of knowledge on body muscles so when something hurts he knows what to do and how to prevent injuries. Now I will start taking Tennis Lessons from him if have the time, which I've herd he is also amazing. I am beyond thankful for his work quality.

    Nick taught swimming to my 5 year old son a few years ago. My son had taken lessons at other swim schools but never was able to move beyond the making bubbles and floating stage. Within a month, Nick taught my son to over on his fear of the water and begin floating and diving in the water. My son is an excellent swimmer now, but he needed the skills Nick provided before he could progress further. Nick was professional and provided lessons that focused on building skills while still fun for a child. A great experience!

    My attitude and manners are unmatched. Not only will you want to jump in the pool, you won't want to leave!


    Children will learn about staying safe in, on and around aquatic environments and will learn about how to better their swimming skills.


    Let's get started! I am a NESTA certified traveling professional personal trainer and swim instructor. Hi! My name is Shawn Denard, and this is Active U. It is a fitness company that promotes being healthy, staying fit, and living life. If you are in need of an in-home professional personal trainer or swim instructor, look no further. I have been an athlete all my life, playing in different sports, being active, and staying fit. Now at 33, I am still active and in shape only because I took the time to be... active. Life is too short to not be able to go out and enjoy all activities because you are overweight or out of shape. So, let's make the time. At Active U, I believe in constantly changing the routine so you never plateau. This means you will shed that fat off faster everyday and will learn many different ways of exercising. When working out, there should be a smile on your face because of the accomplishment you feel inside and out. I specialize in balance, core, crossfit/boot camp training, swimming, and using your own body weight for a lot of the workouts. You will be amazed at all the things you can do just from your home. If you have a gym, I will also show you how to work all the machines, so you can have the knowledge if you ever decide to try things on your own. As for diets, depending on what you are currently doing, we may have to change it around a little, and I will show you how to maintain a healthy living for the rest of your life without making yourself miserable. I also teach swim lessons and sprint/endurance training, from beginner to advanced. If you are looking to learn how to swim, need stroke correction, or just want to workout, I am your instructor. With 15 years of competitive USS swimming experience under my belt, which includes international and collegiate, after seeing you swim a few laps, I can diagnose your stroke, show you what the issue is, and how we are going to correct it. Most coaches stay on the deck. I like to get in the water to capture your whole stroke. Plus, it makes it easier for you to see what it should look like.


    Coaching, group and private lessons are available for all ages, provided by Ocean Search & Rescue veteran.


    I teach children the basics of swimming and pool safety. After learning how to be comfortable and independent swimmers, I can teach them various strokes. I teach freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly (for more advanced swimmers).

    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.
