What some of our awesome clients have said:

  • Please send a big thank you to Jai. For the first time ever, I completed one of Ewen's squads not feeling totally exhausted. I also managed to stay with the group the entire time. Generally anything more than a 100 is difficult but I did two 300 maintaining my position, no dropping back. Even more importantly I was really relaxed the majority of the time!!!
  • Hi Viktoria, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my 1st lesson with Martin this morning. Very professional and informative. I think it will help my swimming a great deal . I look forward to my next lesson later this month.
  • Hello Viktoria This is Simon, I’ve been having swim lessons with Martin over the last 2 weeks. I’m writing to say thank you to the Vladswim team for the great lessons. I’ve previously had lessons with other coaches but I must say that Martin has been by far the best. Martin’s attention to detail & explanation during my two lessons was excellent.

  • Thank you so much for the excellent coaching sessions. I could hardly swim a lap of (terrible) freestyle before, and after just a few sessions I am gliding around in the water like a fish! It's made a huge difference; I can finally swim properly. Thank you!
  • I had my first private swimming lesson with Vlad last week – it was absolutely excellent ! He taught me more about swimming in that half an hour session than I have learnt in my whole 35 years.

  • Vlad -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.
