What People Are Saying About Us
We met Holly because we were seeking someone who could help our urban daughters learn to swim and had seen rapid turnover and unreliability from other swim programs in the city. Holly was exciting and engaging for them from the first lesson: With every “You go girl!” “Did you see how far you just went?” or “Daddy, did you see that backstroke???,” the girls instantly wanted to do their best for her and show off. Holly effectively works with two girls of different ages and abilities, and we see them both progress each week. Every day they ask when they can swim with Miss Holly again. We can’t recommend her enough! — Julie
Please pass on a thank you to Miss Heather. Jaxson really learned a lot from her. Heather was patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Jaxson always looked forward to swim class each week! — Rosa
Holly taught my daughter, Lily, to swim starting at age three. At 5, Lily joined a swim team, practicing three times a week and competing in meets. No matter how many hours Lily spends in the pool at team practice, she still asks to have one-on-one sessions with Holly. Holly helps Lily work on skills, provides encouragement, boosts her confidence, and nurtures her love of swimming! — Sara
I was wanted to to write a quick note to tell you how happy we've been with the swim program so far. I have to give major praise and kudos to Ms. Andrea to start...
Andrea is an incredible teacher. She's warm, friendly, and fun... but also firm and encouraging, and she is exactly what our little guy needed for his first ever swim session. Before Fitness Alive, and before Andrea, he was so tentative with anything related to a pool or water. We had to convince him to get in passed his ankles just for fun! Somehow Andrea, the magician swim teacher, connected with him and he was able to put his trust in her within the first 15 minutes of class. Since then... our family vacation to the pool/beach, has been so much more fun (of course we sing the same songs Andrea does) and he's developing more and more comfort in the water. We would not be here if it weren't for Andrea's first impression and true connection with our little guy.
This session we have Ms. Heather and we're so happy! Although Will often negotiates his turns and the possibility of going "under!," Heather has made swim class fun and enjoyable.
Thank you for a continued ongoing fantastic experience with fantastic teachers! — Erika
just wanted to let you know how wonderful of an experience Roman had with Sarah's instruction and the program. Roman is an introverted sweetheart of a boy and from day one, Sarah was able to make him feel at ease and connect with him. She has a wonderful, natural way with kids. We watched her encourage Roman to learn new strokes, push himself and how to feel in control and safe in water. He said that he misses seeing Sarah on Saturday mornings! — April
I enrolled my daughter in Baby Bubbles shortly after she turned one, hoping to instill confidence in the water early on. Our lessons with Miss Holly have not only made her comfortable in the pool, but have also expanded skills that I never expected! Her time in the water has taught her to blow bubbles, flip from back to front, kick her feet and get water in her eyes, ears and face with no concern, but has also made her less shy with other children and adults, increased her willingness to try new things and encouraged things like jumping and counting outside of the pool. — Bekka
Holly is my ideal swimming instructor and trainer. She believes I'm more capable than I ever believe in myself. I went from panicking when I put my face in the water to swimming all four strokes proficiently. Along the way, she helped build whatever muscles I needed to swim while keeping me long and lean. She also taught my eight- and 10-year-olds how to swim. Now that they’re excellent swimmers. she kicks their butts during swim practices — like last session, when they swam 60 laps, did 90 squats and 30 push-ups. They love her because she is warm and caring and has a lot of positive energy. And she never gives us the same workout twice so it's never boring. — Linh
