Conquer Your Fear- Swimming Lessons - The Swimologist

In your lessons you
can expect to learn:

  • how the water works and how to move through it without effort or fear
  • how to get water on your face and in your ears and be okay with it
  • how to float on your front and easily recover to standing
  • to flutter kick
  • how to effortlessly floating on your back and recover to standing
  • a simplified treading water that makes it easy to keep your head above water

 Your Swim Plan will be customized using the five-step Swimology learning method

Demonstrate

Hear. See. Progress from easy to hard.

You will learn the science behind each new swim skill, it will be demonstrated for you and broken down into easy to learn progressions.

Assist

The support you need to learn.

You will be supported either physically or with the aid of swim equipment like a flutter board or floating barbell so that you can learn each new skill with the proper support.

SOLO

The space to do a skill by yourself. 

Once you have mastered a skill with support, you will move on to performing it solo.

Verbal cues, intermittent support and feedback will help guide you.

practice

Practice. Practice and tweak.

You will practice each skill and receive clear and specific feedback to help you perfect your technique. You will also receive support where needed.

mastery

Independently perform a skill.

You will be able to demonstrate a skill yourself without even thinking about it.

You no longer require support or verbal cues.

We always start from where you're at and move at a pace that is comfortable for you. 

​During your lesson you can: ​
  1. Ask questions at any time.
  2. Ask to skip a skill we are practicing should you feel overwhelmed.
  3. Let Stephanie know how you learn best and request to practice again any skill you feel shaky on.

Have you bought into any of these myths about learning to swim?

  • You think you're too old to learn to swim.
  • You're worried about looking silly or awkward.
  • You've concluded you're a sinker.
  • You believe it will take too long to learn.​
  • You think learning to swim is going to be scary or that you'll never overcome your fear.​
  • You doubt you have the ability to learn to swim. ​

Beginner Swim Lessons is the place to BUST THROUGH those myths.

Every dedicated student who has hopped in the pool with Stephanie has successfully learned how to swim!

Her oldest client to date was 77 years old, proving that it is never too late to learn. Another client, at the age of 73, spent just over a year secretly learning to swim so she could surprise her family at the pool. You can see her story here.

Everyone, regardless of their age or ability, deserves to feel comfortable and confident in the water.

Stephanie is a warm and caring person who exudes enthusiasm and empathy – characteristics that were critical for me to overcome my fear of the water and learn how to swim. 
I can honestly say that Stephanie is the reason I am swimming today.

When I started I couldn't stand water on my face, not even in the shower. I felt like I couldn't breathe in chest-deep water.
Stephanie took me from being terrified of going underwater to jumping up and down in the deep end and swimming across the pool on my own.
