About Victor

I am a student currently studying IT in Amsterdam. I have been swimming for as long as I can remember, and I have been a competitive swimmer for 7 years now. Ever since I started swimming it has been one of my favourite things to do. I have also been a swimming trainer for about for years. In addition to that, I am also an international lifeguard. Because of my background in competitive swimming, I am very passionate about helping people swim efficiently so that they can enjoy their time in the water.

Coaching Style

My coaching style varies from person to person, I want to work with everyone on an individual level to make sure that you can achieve the goals that you have set for yourself. I also am also fond of letting you feel how a good swimming technique can make you shoot through the water like a real fish.

Specialties

My specialities are making you swim fast with as little effort as possible. We will start this journey with your first steps into the pool and end the journey by swimming laps in the deep pool. I have worked with many different types of people over the past few years. This has thought me many things about how to teach people how to swim. For now my advice would be, just do it, start swimming!

“In the pool of learning, courage is your lifeguard.”
