Swimming Classes in Miami: Programs for all Swimmers

First things first. Before learning how to swim, you must learn how to tread water! Sounds simple, but they require both practice and trust. Treading water is a way to keep your body safe and relaxed during your first few dips in the ocean or pool. Maintaining an upright body position, inhale through the mouth and exhale through the nose. Moving your arms in a horizontal direction as you slowly push the water out of your way.

Our Adult Swimming classes offer individualized lesson plans for those who are just starting their journey in the water. Our professional coaches have worked with adults of all ages and backgrounds, and we cater to your unique needs as a swimmer! These 1:1 sessions create a sense of ease for new swimmers because there’s no one else in the class to compete with you. Treading water is a breeze when you have someone there to support you.

Support Your Breath with Miami Swimming Lessons

Did you know that breathing is the #1 tool you have to improve your technique as a swimmer? Oftentimes, those who are uncomfortable in the water have a tendency to shorten their breath while they float. This is not the answer! If you slow down your breathing, inhale through the mouth, and exhale through the nose (rinse and repeat), you will feel more relaxed and at ease in the pool or ocean. You will also improve your buoyancy and keep your body afloat for longer periods of time when you practice breathing properly. Practice inhaling through the mouth, holding the breath, then exhaling slowly through the nose – you’ll exert less energy, too!

Our swimming classes in the greater Miami area are here to serve YOU as a swimmer – you can even start from the comfort of your own home! Our online adult lessons are crafted specifically for those who are too busy to join a team or take in-person classes. Coach Slava carefully crafted a thorough online swimming course for adults looking to expand their athletic repertoire. The online course is perfect for those interested in completing a triathlon. Maybe you’ve mastered running and cycling and have not yet plunged into the water! The online swimming class is a perfect place to begin. It’s a comprehensive way to learn the fundamentals of freestyle swimming and to get you acquainted with the basics! This is a FREE service because we believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the freedom the water offers.
