Thanks Vlad to touch up my swim stroke and opening my wings during my 4 weeks training in Vladswim in August, I just had the best swim split in HK ITU Triathlon last Sunday, I believe I could go faster in next season! I will continues to recommend Vladswim whoever visiting Sydney!

I just wanted to say what a fantastic teacher you are and how much I enjoyed our lessons. You are so patient, so skilled, so fun – really such a great and inspiring teacher! I think of what you taught me NOT JUST in the pool (I swam on Sunday!) but also in my day to day – RELAX. There are so many things you can do better if you RELAX. Thank you for everything! See you next summer.

The private lesson was excellent - all three lessons have been excellent and I am very grateful. It makes a big difference to my life - I can't improve my asthma to the level required unless I swim and I cannot swim if I strain my neck. I didn't think it was possible for me to be able to swim without neck pain! So your help is really important and meaningful to me.
"Vlad has a unique gift. There are many good swimmers, but not so many good coaches. He can see thru the challenges and knows exactly how to address them. Even if you have had a fear of water for 38 years, vlad can help u undo it."
"I could not speak more highly of Vlad. Vlad’s ability to describe visually and verbally what point of technique he is getting across, coupled with an incredible energy and enthusiasm for any level of swimmer at all and the translation of that to REAL attention during busy squad sessions, is key to his amazing successes."
"Vlad, thanks for you passion and enthusiasm. You have been an amazing support over the past 5 months. Thank you so very much - you have been fantastic!!!”
"Please send a big thank you to Jai. For the first time ever, I completed one of Ewen's squads not feeling totally exhausted. I also managed to stay with the group the entire time. Generally anything more than a 100 is difficult but I did two 300 maintaining my position, no dropping back. Even more importantly I was really relaxed the majority of the time!!! Jai has been awesome and has made a profound impact on my swimming”
"Thank you so much for the excellent coaching sessions. I could hardly swim a lap of (terrible) freestyle before, and after just a few sessions I am gliding around in the water like a fish! It's made a huge difference; I can finally swim properly. Thank you!”
"I made the 30 minute walk to the ‘Andrew Boy Charlton Pool’ still feeling pretty low, but within about 10 seconds of seeing Vlad again I felt a lot better. He was so enthusiastic, really loving what he was doing and you could tell straight away the whole squad loved it too. I have never seen so many happy people at 0545 in the morning!"
"Your continued support, enthusiasm, energy and passion is amazing. I am forever indebted to you for all the time and effort you continually put in.”
"Hi Viktoria, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed my 1st lesson with Martin this morning. Very professional and informative. I think it will help my swimming a great deal . I look forward to my next lesson later this month.”
"I had my first private swimming lesson with Vlad last week – it was absolutely excellent ! He taught me more about swimming in that half an hour session than I have learnt in my whole 35 years .”
"Our coach Vlad Mravec has been amazing. Always smiling and always happy, always staying at the pool through our sessions, and yelling encouragement, and always keeping me realistic and confident in achieving this goal. His focus on my technique has really improved my swimming this season. My catch has probably been the main focus and stretching out each stroke, has made me more efficient which is key in long distance swimming. Vlad is also coming over to Rottnest to paddle for Louise, and it will be pretty cool knowing he will be waiting on the finish line."

"This is Simon, I’ve been having swim lessons with Martin over the last 2 weeks. I’m writing to say thank you to the Vladswim team for the great lessons. I’ve previously had lessons with other coaches but I must say that Martin has been by far the best. Martin’s attention to detail & explanation during my two lessons was excellent."
