"One with the Water®'s Coach Elizabeth is one of the best [swimming] coaches I have ever had. Every lesson has a
great deal of understandable take home value."
Dr. John Bell - November 2013
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Coach Ali for our swim lessons. I'm so amazed by how far Nico has come in just
a few short lessons - and more importantly, he is really having fun! Coach Ali's great smile and sense of humor make it easy
for Nico to connect with her - so important in developing a sense of trust. And she does a great job of pushing Nico's
comfort zone each week, without going too far and scaring him away. Thank you!"
Meredith & Nico Shaikh - June 2013
"Coach Elizabeth was amazing. She was extremely knowledgeable, experienced and broke down the elements of the flip-turn
into easily understandable steps. The video was very helpful and her in-pool demonstration and coaching was great. She
easily and clearly answered all of our questions. Elizabeth coached us to be on our way to become more efficient swimmers. I
highly recommend One with the Water and this flip-turn clinic to everyone. With some practice, no more stopping at the wall!"
Mr. Peter Steinberg, Esq. - April 2013
"I'll never forget my first lesson with Coach Kenneth of One with the Water. He asked me to kick with a kick-board: I went backwards! As a 40-year old who
desperately wanted to become a better swimmer I was extremely lucky to find Coach Kenneth. Six months later I am swimming 2000+ yards per workout, including freestyle,
and I am proficient in all four strokes. I never dreamed that possible. Coach Kenneth is an outstanding teacher and motivator.
I feel so lucky to have trained with him."
Mr. Scott Greenberg - March 2013
"I can't thank One with the Water enough. In just 5 sessions, through swim drills and very practical and specific corrections to the inefficiencies
in my form, I went from struggling to finish 125 meters to swimming an unbroken 500m in about 6 weeks. This last week I swam a full 750m. My chief
worry about the sprint triathlon I have coming up had been just finishing the swim portion, but after all the progress I've made since starting with
OWTW, I'm more focused now on how fast I can finish the swim leg, rather than just getting through it. Thanks a ton!"
Mr. Otto Penzato - February 2013
"Hi, our daughter learned a lot with One with the Water today... It made her realize the value of One with the Water's stroke clinic above others."
Mrs. Sarah Zavdi - September 2012
"Coach Kenneth, I am writing to say how grateful I am to you for teaching me how to swim with ease and confidence. Though I had been swimming since I was
a kid, as an adult, I wasn't comfortable in the water. I would watch others swim for what seemed like hours with no effort and, no matter how much I tried,
it was hard for me to swim more than a lap without getting tired. I can hardly believe that I'm now swimming a mile and having fun doing it! Your patience and
enthusiasm, your drills and instructions, have made it possible to advance in technique in just a few weeks. I also think your love of swimming â€“ your
positive outlook and reinforcement â€“ makes it easy to love all the practice. Thanks for passing along all your secrets!"
Mr. Jeff Geoffray - August 2012
"Coach Mallory had an opening that was really convenient for my schedule. I had a great lesson, and she fantastically represented your organization. Currently, I'm practicing what she covered with me and will sign up for another lesson once I've gotten down the pointers she gave me. You all are great: I love working with you! Thanks for all your support."
Mr. Brian Boyl - August 2012
"I wanted to let you know how thrilled we were with the experience Ezzy had swimming with Kenneth. It was really amazing. Kenneth had an incredibly chilled but fun energy that Ezzy totally connected to. He was learning, but having a blast at the same time. I literally would hear him laughing his head off for most of the lesson. More importantly though, 8 lessons later, he was swimming. Kenneth had a perfect balance of pushing Ezzy past his comfort zone, but never scaring or forcing him through something as I have seen other instructors do in the past. I highly recommend Kenneth to all my friends and would use him again in a heartbeat."
Mrs. Sarah Zavdi - June 2012
"Liam had his first lesson with Coach Kenneth From One with the Water. He said, "Coach Kenneth was so encouraging." He had Liam diving for torpedoes, never saw Liam submerged before :-) Thank you!"
Mrs. Morales - March 2012
"This weekend, my son and I had a great time in Palm Springs, celebrating Mother's Day. I felt so much joy and pride watching him play in the pool, water slides, and lazy river with his friends. He had so much fun! That, however, was not the case last year when we went to Palm Springs for our annual Mother's Day weekend. Last year, he was scared to be in the water and watched his friends go down the water slides. He sat at the edge of the pool most of the time, only going in when I carried him and held him while in the water. He has so much confidence now. He is not afraid of being in the water. It made my heart so happy to watch him having so much fun! Thank you, Coach Kenneth, you are the best!"
Ms. Cintra Charbonnet - May 2012
"We were working to get our 11-year-old daughter ready for the Junior Lifeguard test, which required her to swim 100 yards in 1:50. Two weeks before the test she was swimming 100 yards in 1:58. After one lesson with Mallory, in which Mallory worked on technique with her, her time dropped to 1:35. She passed the test last Saturday with a time of 1:34. Thanks, Coach Mallory!"
Ms. Karen Zemlin - May 2012
"Henry really responded to you, and looks forward to his class with you more than anything else right now. After the first class with you, he suddenly looked forward to and enjoyed swimming, as opposed to dreading it. He made huge strides, the biggest he has ever made, working with you."
Mr. Nathan Dean - July 2011
"I'm a Navy Veteran who ironically was never taught proper swimming techniques. The instructor's teaching style couldn't have been better. She quickly made me confident in my weaknesses and instinctly knew when I was ready to be pushed, even before I realized it. The result: I was swimming by the third class! I was overjoyed. I now know a freedom I never knew and have a strength I never had before."
Ms. Sandie Collins, VETERAN, U.S. NAVY - October 2011
"I cannot wait to be a strong swimmer, so I can swim every day. For those few seconds I am one with the water, it feels like being in meditation, in such a beautiful, peaceful world. Thank you for giving me this gift of freedom in the water."
Ms. Cintra Charbonnet - October 2011
