Private swimming lessons - your one-time chance to meet your goals in 1 month!

Hi everyone,

I noticed that there has been a lot of interest lately on EF in swimming lessons for teens/adults. Given that I have some free time this summer (I'm a student) and wouldn't mind earning a bit of extra cash (again, student), I thought there might be some of you looking to get fit for summer/try something new/working towards a triathlon or swim-race who would be interested in private lessons.

If you can already swim at least 50m, I can offer the following:

3x60min sessions in total (in the town and pool of your choice) spread over a time period of 3-5 weeks. Over the course of these three sessions, I will not only give you the only technique advice you will ever need, but also assess your performance factors and create a training plan (with sample training sets) for you to use that month and beyond.

I will only work with adults/teens, and ideally 1-1 (although up to 3-1 is acceptable). This way, you will have my undivided attention and will get more out of the 3 sessions than you would from years of normal swim lessons.

The total price for the 3 sessions is 300CHF plus my pool-entrance costs. While this may be more expensive than other swimming lessons, other swimming lessons don't offer you the chance to work with an ex-international swimmer who has coached swimming at all levels (from beginners 'for fitness' to Olympic medalists in open water and swimming). As you can tell, I am also very modest.

If you are interested or would like references, please send me a PM and we can telephone to discuss whether I can help you achieve your goals. This course is available from now until the end of August.

Thanks I know it isn't for everyone and have already had to turn down several offers (although not from this advert) because they weren't at the right level to benefit from my offer and would just have been throwing their money away.

Nevertheless, there are serious triathletes/adults looking to improve their swimming and fitness who would appreciate what is basically a one-time opportunity at a lower (albeit still considerable) cost than the going rate for private lessons with someone commanding my experience.

Luckily for you (and take note please everybody else) I am available almost anywhere in Switzerland - my GA has been burning a hole in my pocket all year and I can't wait to experience more of the country now that I have some free time!

Do you work with the swimming club there? We might have met each other while I was working with the Zürich team before the Swiss championships a few years ago. BTW i also have qualifications (although admittedly british ones, not swiss ones).

If you are looking to take further Swiss coaching qualifications, I would be happy to offer you support/advice over a coffee sometime - I recently mentored the head coach of the St. Gallen team for her A-license.

Very impressive! This country needs you! Anytime you are in Kilchberg drop in to the pool for a coffee. I've got my own school there

Do the pools have rules about who can use them for private lessons? I have come across this problem before, unless you pay for 'pool/lane hire'?
