Mississauga Aquatics/Swimming Lessons Reviews
Review #1 – I Did Not Like the Water
Let me start off by saying that I did not like the water. I was very scared of it and I would get very tense even at the thought of going to swim! I guess this came from a bad incident I had when I was young when I fell into a pool in someone’s backyard in Mississauga and didn’t know what to do. Someone had to jump in and save me but it was a very traumatic experience, and haunts me still, later in life as an adult!
I hated the water and couldn’t go near it for a while! So, it is safe to say that I did not learn how to swim even when I became an Adult. The fear of the water eventually went away but I still could not swim.
My girlfriend planned a couple’s vacation with myself and her best friend and her boyfriend. The thing is, she planned it all out and guess what? It had a swimming portion that needed us to be able to swim. To be honest, I was a little embarrassed that I didn’t know how. I didn’t want her to know that I couldn’t swim so I made a decision to face my fear and learn how to swim. A long overdue decision.
I reached out to Aim Above Swim School in Mississauga and this was the best decision I every made. They helped me to get my confidence back and helped me to completely lose my fear of the water. In a couple of lessons I was more comfortable in the water and I also now can do many swimming styles, the breast stroke, the fly and so much more.
My girl is impressed and she doesn’t know that a couple weeks ago I couldn’t swim! As you can imagine I am good to go for the trip now! Thanks Aim Above!
Review 2 – My Kids Like My Kids Before Me
I have two kids… Growing up we had an appreciation for the water. Our parents had a beach house that we used to go out to in the Summer and we spent all our time at the beach. It was a ways north from home base in Mississauga, but many people from the area head up to Kawartha Lakes, or Lake Simcoe… Nothing unusual about that.
My sister and I loved the water and we couldn’t imagine a Summer going by and we were not at the beach house. We had so much fun and we invited our friends out there and we taught them how to swim.
My kids are 4 and 6 and they are at that age where I would like them to also have an appreciation for the water as well. To be honest, I was overprotective of who would teach them. Teaching kids requires care and being gentle so they are comfortable and they will be open to learn.
I searched for a swim program and found Aim Above so I thought I would check them out. Let me tell you, these guys are awesome. Perfect in every way.
The instructors there are very gentle with the kids and make them feel very comfortable. When teaching kids this is important as only when they are relaxed they would learn effectively. My 4 year old daughter struggled somewhat but they spent that extra time with her to made her learn.
I really appreciated the care and time they took to ensure that she got it. It is a bonus to know that they are Red Cross Canada certified as well as Lifesaving Society approved. A true bonus!
Even before we started, they explained everything to make us feel comfortable to trust our kids care in their hands. I am not just saying but their overall customer service is top notch and I would recommend them to anyone.
From day one I saw their program was excellent and I was surprised that Adults could learn to swim as well.
Kudos to their program and amazing instructors, keep up the good work!
Aim Above! What can I say? Your name truly represents what you do. You aim above all the others and you are truly above them. I tried another organization to learn and they were very unprofessional but I when I came to Aim Above I was truly surprised.
I knew from the first lesson these guys would rock and they did! I am so happy I chose this place and the trainers have become my friends. They have made me improve all my skills and overall it is a great environment and welcoming to kids as well. We do our lessons at the Meadowvale centre in Mississauga, as they have a perfect pool for private adult swimming lessons! Top notch!
I already knew how to swim but I needed to get my confidence up. I could do some tricks but I was rough around the edges and I am so glad I came here. These guys knew everything and their technique to take me from amateur to semi-professional was great.
To Sum this all up:
- The trainers were genuinely kind, helpful and encouraging
- The facility was clean and very welcoming.
I would recommend them to anyone who wants to learn how to swim. All the best guys!
