About this pro

I have been swimming for over 10 years; can't recall a time where I've spent more than a day away from a body of water. Although I haven't spent the majority of my life around the water I can still vividly remember what it was like to be so afraid to even put my face in. I remember what it was like when I gained a little bit of confidence but lacked the coordination to properly complete a stroke and I remember what it was like to finally complete at level where I could beat out the competition. I say all of that to say to you if I can do it you can do it or your kids or you and your friends can do it!!!!

    Anthony is an amazing swim instructor. Was very patient and made my experience fun. Would definitely refer him to friends and family.

  • D. Redwood

    Anthony is a very good swim coach, he is patient and understanding. We had about 5 lessons and each lesson I learned more and more. When I first started out I was terrified but after he got me comfortable in the water it was easy. I'm not a professional yet haha but he put me on the right track, I would definitely recommend getting lessons from him.

  • Kris Hayes

    I started lessons because I almost drowned on vacation. Then I became terrified of the water. I took lessons with Anthony and he eased me back into the water and helped me with my technique. Now I feel safer and more confident when swimming. Totally trustworthy and informative. He goes the extra mile to help you work on being a better swimmer.
