Professional Swimming in Kazakhstan
As a multiple-time national champion, I accumulated over forty (40) national awards and medals at Kazakhstan National Swimming Championships and consistently ranked among the top two breaststroke swimmers in Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan has a rich and distinguished Olympic swimming history. Mr. Vladislav Polyakov was a 5th place finisher at the 2004 Olympic Games in the 100-meter and 200-meter Breaststroke (Mr. Polyakov competed in the 2012, 2008, and 2004 Olympic Games). Thus, it is an extraordinary accomplishment for an athlete such as myself to rank as the 1st or 2nd best swimmer in Kazakhstan.
International Competitions
I successfully represented my native country, Kazakhstan, at major international competitions such as the Serbia Cup, where I won a Silver Medal. This international swimming competition attracts elite athletes such as Ryan Lochte (11-time USA Olympic Medalist), Cullen Jones (4-time USA Olympic Medalist and Current American Record Holder), Arkady Vyatchanin (2-time Russian Olympic Medalist and Former World Record Holder), Adam Mania (USA National Team Member), Amanda Weir (3-time USA Olympic Medalist), and Fabio Scozzoli (Italian World and European Champion). My Silver Medal in this competition is indicative of my extraordinary ability in the sport.
Other
In addition to my international and national awards for excellence in the sport of swimming, I have won numerous NCAA medals and All-American awards and broken several NCAA School Records and USA Swimming Pool Records during my distinguished career as an NCAA Student-Athlete. On the USA Swimming Grand Prix Circuit, I ranked higher than several USA National Champions and NCAA Champions.

Core Services
My work as a coach always begins with an analysis of the swimmer's skills. I then create an individual training plan that is based on the swimmer’s current abilities.

faq

Where do classes take place?

I coach in both Broward County and Miami-Dade. Depending on where you are located, we can meet at a convenient facility. I can also meet you at the community pool of your choice or right at your own home pool.

How long are your sessions?

Sessions last one hour.

If I miss a lesson, can I make it up? Will I still be charged for a missed lesson?

If you are unable to attend a lesson, you must notify me of the cancellation at least 12 hours prior to the lesson time or the lesson fee is non-refundable and the lesson cannot be made up.

What are your swim lesson rates?

Please check our Packages section above for session rates.

I have two or more children. Can I have a group class? What are the rates?

Yes. If you want a group class, please submit the Custom Package form.

What equipment is necessary for a swimming lesson?

THE ESSENTIALS

Swimsuit: Obviously you will need a swimsuit to learn how to swim. For men, these are usually swim briefs or swim trunks. Boardshorts aren’t very good for swimming, as they create too much drag.

Swim cap: A swim cap is very useful if you or your child has long hair and you want to avoid it getting into the face while swimming.

Swimming Goggles: Swimming goggles are mandatory, as they allow swimmers to put their heads under water without getting water in the eyes. This will permit more relaxed and streamlined swimming.

OTHER SWIMMING EQUIPMENT

Kickboards: Kickboards are devices made of foam or other materials that float, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The main purpose of using a kickboard is to be able to stay afloat while your legs do all the work.

Pull Buoys: Like kickboards, pull buoys are flotation devices that come in a variety of shapes and sizes. But unlike a kickboard, which gives the upper body a rest, pull buoys are placed between the legs to keep the legs afloat without kicking so that you can work your upper body.

Swim fins: Swim fins are a great tool to have while learning the freestyle and butterfly strokes. They give you an efficient kick and allow you to focus on the arm motions in freestyle and on the body undulation in butterfly.
