Aquatic Fitness Training

1. What does this mean? How is it different from swimming lessons? ⁃ Aquatic fitness training is more than just swimming lessons. It can mean anything from water aerobics, to water polo training, to triathlon training. It's different from pure swimming lessons because, 1. it may not even involve learning how to swim, like in the case of water aerobics, and 2. it focuses more on teaching people how to use their current swim skills for a great workout, rather than just learning the moves.

2. Do I need to know how to swim already? ⁃ No. There are many ways to get a great total body workout in the water without knowing how to do formal swim strokes. Of course, if you want to learn how to swim, that can be included in your training.

3. How much does the training cost? ⁃ Prices are equal to that of a personal trainer ($40-60/hour) and can vary depending on the number of hours or type of training required. Speak with your personal instructor to develop a training plan and a price that suits your needs best.

4. How do I sign up? ⁃ Registration is a simple online process. Simply click on this link and follow the simple instructions to register for lessons.

Private swimming lessons at home

Here are some real testimonials from past clients:

Christine writes,"I couldn't have asked for a better swim teacher for my son. My instructor was low-key, always positive and made my son feel comfortable even with his fear of the water. I recommend her highly.”

Sandy writes,“I was extremely pleased with the level of expertise by the instructor. My granddaughter is somewhat timid in the water and doesn't like to try new things. Our instructor was encouraging, knowledgeable and persistent. She got my granddaughter to try things I was amazed at. She is certainly an exceptional swimming instructor, especially for children.”

Shanna writes, “YourSwimmingSpace.com was great! They are very well prepared and professional! Well worth the money!”
