TESTIMONIALS & ENDORSEMENTS

"Thanks Vlad for your touch up to my swim stroke and opening my wings during my four weeks training with Vladswim in August, I just had the best swim split in HK ITU Triathlon last Sunday. I believe I could go faster in next season! I will continue to recommend Vladswim to friends visiting Sydney!"

CHARLES HUI

Hong Kong ITU Triathlon
"I just wanted to say what a fantastic teacher you are and how much I enjoyed our lessons. You are so patient, so skilled, so fun – really such a great and inspiring teacher! I think of what you taught me NOT JUST in the pool (I swam on Sunday!) but also in my day to day – RELAX. There are so many things you can do better if you RELAX. Thank you for everything! See you next summer.”

DAVID BINDER

"I made the 30 minute walk to the ‘Andrew Boy Charlton Pool’ still feeling pretty low, but within about 10 seconds of seeing Vlad again I felt a lot better. He was so enthusiastic, really loving what he was doing and you could tell straight away the whole squad loved it too. I have never seen so many happy people at 05.45 in the morning!”

JAMES FURNBULL

UK, English Channel swimmer
"Your continued support, enthusiasm, energy and passion is amazing. I am forever indebted to you for all the time and effort you continually put in.”
