Anders has been patient and attentive in teaching me how to swim in the ocean and become more comfortable in the water with panic attacks and anxiety. When I first started working with him I wasn’t even able to go in past my knees but with his in person lessons and homework in a short time I have been becoming more comfortable in swimming underwater and in the ocean.

Anders takes the time to understand and analyze the strengths, weaknesses and tendencies of each individual. He then creates a training plan that focuses on quality at a pace that is reasonable for the goals of that person. Anders has a unique background and is able to bring knowledge to his costumers that is beyond the expected. Professional, punctual, and someone who will help you achieve tangible results. I would definitely recommend Anders to anyone looking to improve their swimming technique, efficiency, strength and overall swimming ability.

Details: Youth (6 - 12 years old) • Beginner • Comfortable in water • Improve swimming technique • Yes, a pool that allows private lessons • 60 minutes • My home, venue, etc.

Anders is an excellent teacher and a thorough professional. We spent a number of sessions working on my, self admittedly, broken freestyle technique where I could only swim a lap or two. Anders customized my training exercises to fix various incorrect parts of my stroke, something that would be almost impossible for me to even know about let alone fix without his help. I'm now able to swim for much longer continuously (11 laps last we checked but I'm sure I can do more) and comparatively effortlessly, and with much better technique. Anders keeps a high bar for professionalism. He is always on time, prompt in responding to questions and sharing exercises for homework. He's also very easy to talk to and work with. Overall, Anders is one of the best swimming coaches in the area. Highly recommended.

Details: Adult (18 or older) • Intermediate • Comfortable in water • Improve swimming technique • Yes, a pool at my home • 45 minutes • My home, venue, etc.

If you are looking for a swim coach for your next triathlon Anders is the best choice you have. things i learned: proper breathing recovery stroke (when you get tired or having that panicky feeling) body stream line to swim further with the same effort. He thought how me push my self and pass that mental block that limits your capabilities. He is also a great motivator, a lot of times I wanted to quit swimming but I'm still here swimming almost everyday. He did not only helped me on my swim, he also helped me change to a healthier lifestyle. 💯 percent satisfied!
