No matter what your swim level is, private swim lessons might just be the answer to your swim efforts. Whether you are afraid of water, just starting out to swim, interested in doing your first triathlon, or are a seasoned triathlete, private hands on instruction is the fastest and most efficient way to learn to swim or improve your swimming technique. If you live in Finland's Helsinki region and want to improve your swimming level, this might just be the thing you have been looking for. You will see a difference already after one lesson.
Group swim lessons are good, however, with so many people in the group nowadays you do not get the attention you deserve and this also makes learning to swim quite more difficult. With private lessons, there is no need to fight for your teacher's attention, the swim lessons are tailored to your ability level, so the improvements come much faster and the time is more flexible as well.
My name is Libor Janek and I currently coach the best masters swim team in Finland, Cetus Masters (2011 Masters National Champions). I'll share with you my knowledge and swim trade secrets that I have learned over the 25 years of competitive swimming and 15 years of coaching/swim instructing experience ranging from young kids to college competitive swimmers to adults. I will help you learn how to swim, completely revamp your stroke and break your old habits with new drills and techniques.

The private swim lesson structure is fully dependent on your ability level and your swimming goals. For example, if you are just starting out, you might be interested to feel better in the water and to swim a few laps without having to stop every so often to catch your breath. If you are a seasoned triathlete, you might be interested in learning the in and outs of freestyle technique as it pertains to open water swims to help you get ahead of your competition. So, no matter what swim level you are, you will receive tailored instruction about the water element and different swimming technique to help you get the most out of your swimming.
And as a bonus, you will get a life long contact to answer any questions related to swimming you might have.
