Elton has trained me for a long time now and I can honestly say that if it wasn’t for him, I would never have reached my goals. He’s very patient and knowledgeable in catering to what I need. He’s also very kind and never makes me feel bad about myself. I highly recommend him, he’s a great trainer!

Elton was very knowledgeable and set up a workout that was suitable for my goals. He answered my technical questions with patience, and charismatically pushed me along when I felt daunted by an exercise. His easy going nature has made progress in the gym seem achievable and something to look forward to.

Great teaching methods and has tons of patience. If i could not understand something he'd show other methods to get a better understanding of it. Shows compassion towards his job as well and always aims to see improvement and just motivates keep trying to get better. Will definitely recommend to friends and family seeking to learn how to swim as well.

I’m so grateful I had to opportunity to work with Elton because I’ve always been scared of the water, but after 2-3 sessions, he was able to make me more comfortable and to move on my own in the water. He was very patient and very good at teaching me the swimming technique! I recommend him to anyone 😊

Elton is a great swimming instructor! He’s friendly and down to earth. His confidence in the water and in me made me believe I could do it. I even learned more than I intended. (I just wanted to learn freestyle. He got me doing breast stroke and backstroke as well.)
