"Well, THAT was the best money I've ever spent on swim lessons!"
"Thank you for a fantastic 6 weeks of swim lessons! The boys learned so much and had so much fun. Almost every day they woke up asking, 'Is it swim lesson day?'"
- A.W., Decatur
"We made more progress with my children in 3 lessons than our former private teacher did in the 3 months we were there. At this point, we have been doing lessons for four months and couldn’t be happier. Each chlid learns in a way that suits their learning style rather than a one size fits all approach."
"(Swim lessons with ReadySetSweat) has been the best confidence builder for my six year old son! He was afraid of getting his head wet in the pool six weeks ago. Now, he is learning strokes and swimming from side to side in the pool and loves to swim! Two thumbs up!
"We are very pleased with (our son's) progress and loved how you interacted with him! We will be recommending you to anyone who needs swim lessons...!"
"When our three children started lessons, I wasn't sure how well they would respond. Our 3 year old was terrified of going under water. Our 6 year old had a traumatic swimming experience at age 4 and was hesitant to get off the pool stairs and our 9 year old has an autism spectrum disorder. Now, all three are swimming underwater, learning different strokes, and enjoying each lesson. This has made a tremendous difference for us!"

"Thank you again for all the help, my confidence in the water is through the roof because of you."
-B.C., Huntsville (Navy pilot, training for mile-long swim in flight suit)
"Before training with you, my swim used to be the WORST part of my race. Now it's my best."
" We wanted to say how much we have enjoyed taking lessons and how much we feel we have improved as swimmers - I no longer dread going to the pool (which is a victory in itself!"
"Thanks for all your work to improve my swimming. The (triathlon) went pretty well... My swim improved by 0.5 mph and I was NOT exhausted when I got out of the water. Thanks again."
"In the first lesson, Ali gave me techniques that improved my power by 30 to 50 percent."
"Ali ...was very patient (with me) as I first had to overcome my fear of water. She knew just what I needed to be successful with my first triathlon. I can now say with confidence that I can swim! "
"Just want to say a really big THANK YOU to my swimming instructor, Ali Meeks. She has taken a guy who was honestly
afraid of water and given him a huge confidence boost. Words cannot express how grateful I am for all of the instruction you've given me, Ali. I'm glad I had such an awesome teacher!"
It feels really good to not be afraid of the water. Think I can give Michael Phelps a run for his money?!? Think people would believe that I only learned how to swim less than a year ago?"
"I went from someone who had just recovered from a long, difficult illness, who had only exercised occasionally during the previous five years, to swimming 3 miles across Pensacola Bay! I had always dreamed of becoming an open-water swimmer, but didn't know how to start. I had no idea how to train for a swim of this distance. But then I met Ali. Ali reassured me, helped me improve my stroke, and created a tailored workout program for me.
She is an excellent one-on-one teacher who really explained things in ways I could understand. And she made every session FUN! I accomplished my goal in only 14 weeks. I will never forget this experience. Best of all, I have my health back!"
