Joanna teaches swim lessons in Montgomery and Central Bucks County to adults and teens seeking to improve their strokes and turns for competition and triathlon.
She helps triathletes become swimmers who are fully comfortable in the water, and ready for competition (or masters swim classes!). If you just cannot get faster no matter how hard you try… swim lessons are the answer. You’ll be amazed at how a bit of stroke technique will make a bigger difference than swimming more yards.
The nuance corrections in the stroke or turn can be the difference in seconds of time in placing, or minutes in a mile swim.
Joanna teaches at the YMCA in Doylestown, PA, and limited swim lessons at Simmons Elementary in Horsham, PA, (during school year only). You do not have to be a member to take lessons at either location.
Lessons are typically 30 minutes long for one stroke.
45 or 60 minutes for swim team students as we review all the strokes and turns.
30 minute lessons are $58 and full hour is $108. Packages are also available.
