It is never too late to start swimming – whether you are an adult learner or are looking to get back into it.
Swimming is a fantastic workout, as it requires whole body movement working against the resistance of water. It’s a great way to get your heart rate going with minimal impact on your body and an ideal activity if you are recovering from injury.
Who is A1 Swimming Academy For?
At A1 Swimming Academy, we work with adults of all ages and abilities to teach them to swim, master their swimming technique or to build their confidence in the water.
Beginners we work with you, in your home pool, apartment complex pool or at an outdoor ocean bath and work one-on-one to build your confidence, teaching you the skills to increase your confidence and ability.
Out of Practice if you haven’t swum since childhood, we can help you rediscover your love of hours in the pool.
Intermediate/Advanced swimmers – Those wanting to swim better We also offer stroke correction lessons to improve your technique and swimming efficiency.
Rehabilitation If you can no longer run due to injury or need low impact exercise to help rehab an injury.
But we’re not just swimming teachers, we can work with you to overcome your fear of or in the water. Whether it’s:
A fear of water…
The fear of water is one of the most common concerns that we come across at the Academy, this may have resulted from a childhood trauma, a learned behaviour, or a bad experience. Having such a fear can significantly impact on your daily life when it comes to things like going to the beach with your friends or enjoying life in pool at home with family.
At A1 Swimming Academy, we recognise that everyone has a different level of water confidence and work with our clients on a 1:1 basis, going at their own pace to help them address and overcome their concerns and fears, and gain greater confidence in the water.
Panic about breathing
It is very common for adults to panic in the water, even those who have been swimming for years. One of the reasons that people panic or feel anxious in the water can be because they don’t have the correct breathing technique.
Our trainers will help you develop the right breathing techniques that once learned will take you from panicking or hyperventilating and avoiding the water altogether to feeling calm, relaxed and confident in the water.
If this sounds like you, talk to us about our one-to-one coaching provided by an experienced and qualified personal swim trainer who will work with you at your own pace and in your own pool!

5 Stars – The instructor was awesome. She was patient with me and took into consideration my fear of the water (yes I am an adult afraid of the water). She helped me gain confidence in the water, corrected my stroke, and worked with me on my breathing techniques. I really enjoyed my classes and highly recommend A1 Swimming Academy.
