Our experience is the difference between learning to swim and learning to swim the right way, which optimizes the balance between body position, kick, stroke, breathing and timing.
Whether you are afraid of the water or already a competent swimmer, Proswimming UK offers professional home swimming lessons to all levels. We have both the experience and the facility to offer private & confidential home swimming lessons in London.
We take each learner through the STA International learn to swim programme that works progressively to mastering the 4 strokes. We understand that each learner is unique in their ability to adopt the finer points of swimming and therefore, we remain friendly and patient as the learner loses their fear of the water and progresses to becoming a competent swimmer.
Swimming is my life’s work! I have been involved in swimming for over a decade, most of which was spent as a competitive swimmer. I am STA Level 1&2 qualified in swimming teaching and ASA Level 1&2 qualified in swimming coaching.

How long does it take to learn front crawl?
The length of time it takes to teach someone how to swim is completely different from one individual to the next. As a general rule of thumb, children learn over a number of years and the industry standard for teaching an adult to swim one length front-crawl with breathing is 20 hours of teaching.
How do I swim faster?
From a technical perspective the real gains are to be made in the stroke. In front-crawl the legs play a part in propulsion but their main purpose is for balance. So the arms play a significant role in answering the question how do I swim faster? The stroke is composed of 5 parts, the entry, catch, pull, push and recovery. The pull and push phases are very important if you want to swim faster. Furthermore the benefit of pushing back against the water with a bent arm is simple. You are stronger!
