Getting Along Swimmingly with The Swimming Room (Results of Giveaway!)

We have been with Eugene of The Swimming Room for more than 3 years now and I have had 2 kids with very different learning styles taking lessons with him. Eugene adapts his teaching style to suit each child and he always manages to persuade the child to participate even if the child is hesitant or afraid.

Anya hated swimming from the start and would cry until she vomited on Eugene and this went on for a few months. But Eugene was always patient but firm with her and eventually, she grew to love swimming and is now water-safe and confident in water. Here are some of my favourite moments from Anya’s 2.5 years with The Swimming Room!

it’s been a great journey!

I’m so happy that Adam is now taking swimming lessons with Eugene of The Swimming Room and to see him becoming more confident in the water with every lesson. I can’t wait till the baby is ready to start swimming classes with The Swimming Room as well.
