What sets Coach Glen’s swimming lessons apart from others and strong reasons to take his lessons:
– Glen specializes in coaching absolute beginners, especially teens/adults, on how to swim to survive and swim with confidence, with the main goal of equipping individuals to be capable to move in water bodies with confidence as a basic life skill, which may save their life.
– Glen specializes in providing super quick results to teens/adults beginners and getting them to be capable of swimming unaided and independently in the shortest time possible.
– Glen’s lessons are great at getting kids to find deep intrinsic meaning in learning swimming and see it’s value, and learn in ways they best enjoy and progress. (Most lessons elsewhere are rigid in their approach to teaching kids, resulting in them losing intrinsic interest, feeling forced and may therefore not seeing the value in learning swimming).
– Glen is exceptionally capable in ultra personalizing his teaching for his learners, in ways that they best understand, so that they learn most deeply and quickly (Something that the vast number of other coaches are not able to do well, as they can be quite rigid in their teaching methods, leaving a lot of learners left out and left behind).
– Very comprehensive learning experience (Learners get to learn a lot on how to train on their own as well, etc).
– Lessons prices are more cost effective than others.
– More straight forward, accessible, easier, and convenient system of booking and taking lessons. Our booking policies are more flexible with the aim to provide the best convenience of booking and using lessons, without negatively impacting the accountability of the learner’s optimal learning continuity and progression.

“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.
