Re: Private Swimming Lessons

I think i-b-deborah still works on the wrong side of the lake. You could try her though. Otherwise I would ask at the pools or look on their home-pages if you don' t get much joy here. Often water is more difficult to arrange than a coach!

Re: Private Swimming Lessons

Thanks Longbyt, I have tried the websites but seems most of the swimschools all take breaks over the school holidays which is less than ideal and thats why I am hoping to find a private teacher.

Re: Private Swimming Lessons

Try Szilard at http://www.swimatic.ch I've trained with him and his brother in Zurich and a friend has been to a couple of his swim camps in Spain and got a lot out of them.

*edit He speaks good English too

How serious do you want it to be? I know a 2-time Olympic swimmer who'd be more than happy to help you out with your crawl.

Re: Private Swimming Lessons

A Olypmic swimmer may be a bit too serious, but PM the details and perhaps something can be arranged!

Re: Private Swimming Lessons

LIB, l would be interested to hear about the Olympian, I already have a world championship, Olympic trainer for synchronized swimming. I don't always take lessons, but when l do l take them from the best.

Re: Private Swimming Lessons

What kind of level are you at now and what is your goal? I used to do some coaching work with members of the Swiss national team a few years ago and, while I stopped coaching after university, I can probably point you in the right direction (to find a quality coach).

Re: Private Swimming Lessons

I would be interested in private lessons around Thalwil / Horgen / Zurich. My level is beginner and my goal is to start doing some basic swimming in the lake this summer. Please PM me if anyone is available and I would appreciate any available information.

Re: Private Swimming Lessons

I'm hoping that you'll maintain the noble triathlon tradition of riding in speedos. This is something one doesn't see enough of these days...

Re: Private Swimming Lessons

Hi Ryan,

I am starting up beginners courses next week, and I can give private lessons too. Get in touch if you want to set something up.

Cheers,
