"I've never been confident in the water, incredibly after just 1 lesson with Leigh I was able to put my face in! Leigh's skilful approach was incredible and instilled such a level of trust in such a short time. She helped me to break a habit of a lifetime in one session!"
"I had a massive fear of water and hadn't been near a pool since 1976! Leigh managed to teach me how to swim front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke in only 9 weeks! I can't recommend Leigh highly enough."
"Leigh has taught both my daughter's how to swim since they were 3 months old. She is an amazing, patient, caring teacher. My girl's are now aged 6 and 8 and they are both fantastic swimmers!"
Planet Swim provides private swimming lessons in London and surrounding counties for clients to learn in the familiar and private surroundings of their own pool. Take the stress out of visiting chilly, busy public pools and let Leigh come to you! Leigh teaches all ages and abilities from 6 weeks to over 100 years old, from beginners to advanced coaching.
Planet Swim also teaches swimming lessons in a lovely private pool in Barnet, North London. The water is heated to 31 degrees and is the perfect teaching pool. Leigh offers private 1:1 and 2:1 coaching from babies up to Swim England Stage 4. Please contact Leigh to discuss your personal requirements and arrange a time that suits you.
Learning to swim later in life is a fantastic achievement. Leigh is extremely experienced teaching adults with water phobia and physical impairments. You will learn how to breath, relax, float, tread water and swim all in a private environment. You will be surprised how quickly you will learn these skills!
Here at Planet Swim we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn how to swim whatever their age. Our adult beginner group lessons focus on addressing the underlying issues that may have prevented someone from taking the plunge and learning to swim. We will teach you how to float in the water, we do not use floatation aids, instead we equip you with the skills and confidence of your own buoyancy. Floats will be introduced at a later date to develop stroke technique. We will teach you the breathing techniques to help you relax. At the time of these lessons there will be no spectators or children in the pool to give privacy during the sessions. Our coaches will be in the water with you during each lesson.
Planet Swim adult improver sessions are ideal for adults wishing to learn or improve the front crawl technique or develop other strokes. In our experience it is extremely common for adults to be able to only swim a few strokes or a length of front crawl before getting breathless and exhausted. In these sessions we will teach you correct body position, breathing techniques that suit you and improve your overall stamina whilst focusing on technique.
Planet Swim adult advanced training sessions will run alongside our improver lessons. Fitness will be our focus whilst still ensuring that all swimmers use correct technique and have the opportunity to improve skills if necessary. All strokes will be included in these sessions, however if there is a particular stroke you are unable to swim either due to injury or lack of skills these can be modified to suit you.
Planet Swim coaches offer private coaching sessions to address your particular needs. Each session is half an hour of coaching followed by an optional half an hour of individual practise in a private lane. This is the perfect session for improving technique and stamina. Also available for beginners. We offer 10% off gift vouchers for this service, the gift of swimming lasts a lifetime!
