Three days......just three days!!! I went from panicked, scared and sinking like a rock to swimming laps with no end. Klauss is an incredible communicator and a wonderful person. After explaining the simple concept of buoyancy and showing me the proper application, I was floating in minutes. I’ve never been able to do that. Building on that confidence Klauss introduced swim strokes and breathing techniques. I spent the last two days swimming!!!! Swimming, swimming swimming. I am looking forward to getting back in a pool and continuing this wonderful new found skill. Words cannot express my gratitude to Krause for the gift he has given me.
I'm 50 and my only other swim lesson experience was when I was 10 or 11. The class was early in the morning and all I can remember was shivering uncontrollably and having a death grip on the edge of the pool. This is, as Klaus explains, not how he teaches. Our class were all adults. We started in the shallow end and the water is 85 degrees. He made us comfortable.
I knew I wasn't afraid of the water as much as not knowing (and accepting the fact I didn't know) what to do. I was also convinced I couldn't float.
Klaus first explained bouyancy and how it relates to swimming. I quickly realized it wasn't that I couldn't float as much as I didn't know how. After learning I could float, the rest was relatively easy.
The course is an intense 4 days. It's a lot of pool time but the time goes quickly. By day two, I was spending more time in the deep end, practicing my strokes, than I'd ever imagined. It was exciting how much confidence and ability I was gaining daily. Day two, I was jumping into the deep end and swimming out. Day three, I was diving into the pool.
Overall, this has been one of the most amazing and fulfilling experiences in my life. As we discussed during a break, the earth is over 70% water and most people never get to or are too afraid to experience it. Klaus and Titiya opened the world to me and I'm forever grateful.
I just completed Klaus program and I am thrilled with the result. By the end of the 3 1/2 days I was jumping into the deep end from the diving board. Although finesse was lacking, I was able to swim from the deep end many times. Klause programme gave me confidence and skills to continue my swimming journey. I am able to practice independently to improve my swimming skills.
This review is long overdue-Klaus is an amazing instructor who is very passionate about what he does. You have to let go of your fears, inhibitions and any preconceived ideas, and just LISTEN and DO what he says, and you will be swimming in no time. I still can't believe i can jump and dive in the deep end with ease now. Thank you Klaus for a life changing experience. I love water now. Thank you kindly
I am 82 years old. Wanted to be comfortable swimming. Decided to take this intense 32 hour course last holiday weekend. I was happy I did. The experience was very rewarding. Klaus is in excellent instructor with a great sense of humor.
I wish I could give the school and my experience ten stars!! The method Klaus uses to teach is so common sense, foolproof, and confidence building, it cannot be beat. His demeanor, patience and sense of humor make it an even better learning atmosphere and experience and the phyical atmosphere is as advertised and perfect for learning how to swim. I truly cannot say enough about how mich more than satisfied I am with the investment I made in going to the Bolle Swim School.
I simply didn’t think I could ever do it since I missed the opportunity to learn as a kid…and quite honestly I was afraid to.
Upon arriving at the first lesson, I introduced myself to the other students that had come from as far east as Massachusetts and as far south as Florida to learn to swim. We were all over 50 years old and eager to conquer our apprehension about being in the water. I’m sure we were all thinking… ”What have we gotten ourselves into?”
We got in the pool and one of our first directives from Klaus was to lean our heads back and relax. How could I relax when I didn’t know how to swim?! But the kindest, yet commanding voice, coming from this gentle giant reassured me that I could do it and that he was right there with me. I leaned my head back, listened to his instruction and within seconds I was floating. Within minutes I learned my first stroke and by the end of the first day---I was SWIMMING across the pool doing the backstroke! On day one!
Klaus is an amazing instructor and an equally amazing human being! With over 40 years of swim experience, a competitive background, and a genuine interest in helping people; he instantly gained my trust. Not only did I trust him, I trusted the process and can now swim after just 4 days of instruction. Truly life changing! I’m glad I said YES to this opportunity and am so happy to have learned from this real life Aquaman who is doing what he loves everyday while helping the people who need it the most—adult non-swimmers.
Klaus – there aren’t enough words to express how grateful I am to have met you and to have had this life-altering experience. You’ve changed me in more ways than you’ll ever know. I am capable. I am confident. I am fearless. I am a swimmer. You are a man with tremendous gifts and I thank you for sharing them! You are the definition of passion meeting purpose.
I am 63 and have been afraid of deep water my entire life until I completed the swimming course at Bolle in May 2018. I have been swimming almost everyday since and continue to be more relaxed in deep water. My wife can’t believe how it has changed our life. We have enjoyed Memorial Day, Father Day and the 4th of July with my family and grandkids in the pool. I highly recommend Klaus as a teacher and his program. I think it is worth every penny.
Growing up, I never bothered to learn how to swim. As I grew older and went on vacations to beautiful beaches around the world, I felt left out and decided to learn how to swim. Being a busy professional I did not have time to go for endless classes in front of kids half my age moving around in the water like they were born swimming. So I went online and came across Bolle Swim School. It sounded too good to be true and I was very skeptical at first. But just 4 days with Klaus in Arizona and I was comfortable in the water and could float, do the backstroke, dive, and a lot more!! Klaus is very patient and knowledgeable and is just about the best in swimming instruction! I definitely recommend this swimming course to every adult with a desire to learn how to swim.
Definitely would highly recommend this program. Learned more in 4 days that I had with previous lessons. Helped me get over my fear of doing a back float, and of being in deep water. Now have a solid foundation to work / practice from. Thanks, Klaus. (Back to the dogs
I took the class on November with my friend. Two of us have same problem. We afraid to being in the water. The first day we started . Klaus showed us many different way that we have more confidence to get into the water. The second day we can swim to other side of the pool . We not afraid any more .
By day 4 . We had learned back stoke, breast stoke, and many more. I highly recommended to anyone who would like to know how to swim. He is amazing.
ตอนแรกเข้าใจว่าการว่ายน้ำแบบงูๆปลาๆ เป็นเรื่องธรรมดา. แต่พอได้เรียนว่ายน้ำอย่างถูกต้องโดยครูสอนมืออาชีพ เข้าใจง่ายเป็นเร็ว มันดีมากสำหรับคนที่ไม่มีเวลาเรียน. ฉันได้บอกเพื่อนๆ. มันง่ายกว่าที่คิด(เพราะตอนแรกกลัว)และฉันจะบอกเพื่อนๆและคนที่รูจักให้ไปเรียนว่ายน้ำ และมันก็ไม่ได้แก่เกินเรียนเลย. (ฉันอายุ 54ปี) หน้าร้อนนี้ฉันได้ไปเที่ยวรีสอร์ต ได้ว่ายน้ำอย่างที่ไม่ต้องกล้าๆกลัวๆอีกต่อไป ต้องขอขอบคุณเพื่อนที่แนะนำฉันให้ไปเรียนว่ายน้ำ. และที่สุดนี้ต้องขอขอบคุณคุณครูKlaus ท้ายนี้ฉันขอให้คุณครูได้ให้วิชาความรู้สอนแก่คนที่ยังว่ายน้ำไม่เป็น ต่อไปนะค่ะ. ได้บุญด้วยค่ะ
Although I had taken swimming lessons many years ago, I never felt very confident about my ability to swim and therefore I always avoided deeper waters. My goal was to overcome this lack of confidence and enjoy the water comfortably for both exercise and recreational purposes. I can honestly say that by the end of the 4th day, I now consider myself a "swimmer" and can confidently navigate deeper waters. Before departing, to my own amazement, I found myself actually diving into the deeper end and swimming the length of the pool multiple times! Klaus is an amazing swim instructor. My apprehensions made the initial days difficult for me but Klaus' personal attention, constant encouragement and corrective instruction made all the difference. Thanks Klaus.
I took this class with my husband who has always wanted to learn how to swim. My husband was told by a swim instructor that he was a "sinker" I had no real expectations for myself, but was totally amazed in how I learned to swim in 4 days. Klaus truly is an instructor with years of knowledge and experience in swimming. He also explains buoyancy in relevance to technique. His patience and sense of humor adds to his skills..I would never put my head under water before taking this class and now am not only able to swim under water but relax in swimming the back stroke as well. I also did a hand stand under water!! Who would have thought?! I would highly recommend this class to anyone with doubts about learning to swim. Thank you Klaus for sharing your skills with others! And also..my husband was never a sinker..he was just never taught properly.
I found Bolle swim school while doing some research on google. I started this swimming class a little skeptical, wondering what miracle would make me build confidence and swim in just few days! I must said that I was amazed by the simple and logical teaching technique of Mr Klauss. The lesson on buoyancy helped a lot. I still can't believe in just 4 days I was able to do backstroke, breaststroke with head in and out of water, jumping and even diving!
I highly recommend this class to all fresh beginners. Yes, it is possible to learn swimming in just 4 days!
I am probably more advanced than the average student that attends Klaus' class. I don't have a fear of water but lacked the real survival skills needed if I were dropped off far away in the water (say in the middle of a lake). Klaus refined my strokes, taught me proper survival floats and cut through what was needed and what was not to be able to survive.
Adding some fun skills like diving, underwater retrieving and handstands was icing on the cake.
I also witnessed another person in the class go from being completely nervous to even enter the pool to swimming laps into the deep end in a matter of days.
If you are interested in basic entry level swimming to even more advanced stuff I highly recommend Klaus. I can see why he guarantees his classes, I would have a hard time seeing someone not coming out a swimmer after going to his class.
Ive had multiple drowning experiences in my life and never focused on learning to swim because it has always been difficult for me to pick it up. I never give up though. YMCA's courses didnt help me because they focused so much on freestyle and breathing that i practically learned nothing. And each lesson was so spread out that I had to refresh what I learned the week before, which cuts into class time. Klaus' method was great...spending hours a day in the pool and talking about theories really helped me to understand the human body and swimming itself from a scientific perspective. I was able to float on my back easily just by controlling the breathing, and do backstroke and breast stroke within few days! Klaus has a great sense of humor and always keeps the class interesting...and he always have the most interesting fun facts to share with us! I felt more confident than i ever did in water...and we all also dove into the deep end of the pool! I totally recommend this, because his methods are different and effective! Thank you again Klaus!
I'm 60 years old and had almost given up on the possibility of learning to swim. Fear of the water and the humiliation of not knowing how to swim had kept me from learning. I was googling adult learn to swim (expecting nothing) when I saw the webpage for Bolle Adult Swim lessons. I signed up immediately. It's everything it says it is. In 4 days I went from being afraid to stand in shallow water to swimming in 12 ft water. I can swim!! I feel like my life has changed. I'm so happy and proud of myself too!
I attempted to learn to swim via lesson at the Y. After 7 half hour session, while I could float and somewhat kick, I just wasn't getting free style down. So I took the chance on this school.
The price is high, but after taking it I understand why. It's a very intensive course. I believe we were in the pool having lessons 3 hours each day over the course of 5 days. I along with one other student worked with Klaus each day. The way the class is structured is great as he went through the movements of breast stroke and back stroke step by step and we didn't move on until each of us got what we needed to do down. I had a very tough time putting all the movements together on Day 3, but Klaus just kept on top of what I was doing and correcting as I went along. Also, we did exercises about being comfortable in the water which was great. I was definitely less afraid of being in the water via the lessons we went through. I was exhausted after each class and usually would eat like a pig afterward, but felt great after each night. I believe it was by day 4, I was able to go end to end swimming on my back without a problem.
Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to learn to swim. The price is high, however, the quality of the teaching from Klaus proves that it's worth it. The guy knows what he's doing.
I never thought i can swim, until i found bolle swimschool!Its like a miracle for me, after 3 days i can cross the pool without help. i will come back again to take the advance course.thank you.
