How fast does it take for me to learn? What to expect for progress?
Our fastest learner to freestyle/front crawl properly from scratch, took just 4 lessons with Glen.
If you’re a complete beginner, without a coach, it’ll usually take about 6 months to a year to learn the basics of swimming. At times, it’s also not uncommon to hear individuals saying that they feel that they can never learn to swim properly on their own. With proper private lessons, the time taken to learn usually lasts anywhere from a couple of weeks to a few months, and the time is usually cut by 70% because there’s a coach with you to correct your mistakes on the spot in person and guide you closely and personally.​ For absolute beginners; it usually takes about 4 lessons with Coach Glen, for them to learn 1-2 swim skills (for eg; breast stroke and survival float) fully that they are able to do it on their own for a significant distance and time, from scratch (*About 95% of Glen’s students learn this fast). 8 lessons usually enable the vast majority of Glen’s students to be able to swim across laps of the pool, and able to do survival float, swim variation or treading water for at least 1 minute. For the experienced swimmers who want to improve their skills with Coach Glen, it usually takes them 4 lessons to refine their technique well, hence achieving their goal. Or to be fully capable of swimming in open waters with confidence, in as little as 4 lessons (usually). Check out testimonials from happy clients below.

“Not just only friendly, Glen is also an excellent instructor that made sure everything is safe. The fundamentals were well explained and his guidance made me feel at ease in water. Manage to learn breast stroke within 4 lessons!! Two thumbs up for Glen and team :D” – Zor Lee

“Thanks to you, I’m no longer afraid of swimming in deep pools. Good thing I found you in Gumtree.” -Swimming and aquatic locomotives training: Dexter, Philippines.

“The training has benefited me, and the booking process and procedures were systematic and reliable. I managed to achieve what I want.” – (Learn breast stroke and freestyle from scratch): Kanchan, expat.

“I would like to share with you my wife’s and my gratitude to Glen and his swimming training techniques.  My wife had come to Singapore for a short 2 week holiday to visit me while I am working here and felt it is about time she was to learn how to swim to enjoy outdoor activities with me.  She did some research and came across “Training by Glen” who does personal swimming lessons for people who have no swimming background.  My wife was very nervous that at her early 30’s she may not learn how to swim and that she was going to waste her lessons booked. After the first lesson of 1 hr per lesson my wife was over the moon because she could do breaststroke for a few strokes without the breathing technique.  She was so excited that she didn’t get out of the pool after her class for another 1 hr or so to practice. By her 4 lesson my wife was able to do breast stroke with breathing properly, a bit of treading water and started to learn freestyle. After 8 lessons with Glen my wife is so confident in the water that she can swim breaststroke, tread water and freestyle all with proper technique.  Even wanting to teach me how to do breast stroke that I don’t even know and I learnt how to swim more than 28 years ago. My wife and I would like to thank Glen for his easy teaching and patience.” -Alex Lee, Allianz Technology, expat / Wife; Sara Li.

“I had put off swimming lessons for 5 years till I found trainingbyglen. A great plus was the flexible scheduling which allowed me to learn at my own pace. I am also very satisfied with my progress in the breaststroke and freestyle thus far. The drills, repetitions and feedback on technique had made swimming much easier. Thank you! -Li Ching, Student, Singaporean.

“My swimming technique improved massively only after a couple of sessions with Glen… I now feel equipped with the skills and techniques to swim confidently and with pride and would highly recommend beginners or even regular swimmers to have coaching sessions with Glen. The sessions were very well structured with clear objectives, useful feedback and very professional. I was very happy with the teachings and service provided by Glen.” -Serena Shah, UK expat.
