How long do I need to learn to swim with Swimtravel PH? Our method, originally from Europe, is easy, proven effective, and backed with scientific evidence, where our students managed to learn with great results in just their first hour of lesson. Although each student’s ability to focus and to follow the instructions may vary, always remember that learning is a step-by-step process. Do not be pressured and take your time. Learning with us is not a competition. Just enjoy the process, and the results will eventually come. We offer 1 hour per session, but usually 30-45 minutes is enough. The most important thing is not to overtrain and to remain injury free while learning the basics of swimming.
How does our scheduling work? All swimming schedules are pre-arranged and flexible. You can consume your sessions once or twice a week, even everyday, as long as it is within the timeframe available per venue. You may choose a different venue per session. Think of it as a gym membership where you can visit any pool around Metro Manila. All pools are PRIVATE 12-20FT deep and lap pools. We DON’T accept walk-ins.
Those allowed in the pool venues are Swimtravel PH students only. Companions of students are not allowed in the pool area due to COVID-19 preventive measures. Booking of schedules is on a first-come first-served basis. We will only book your slot/s once payment has been made. We offer both weekday and weekend classes – day and night. Classes are one (1) hour per session.
What to bring? Swim cap and Goggles (clear goggles are highly encouraged to enhance your deep pool experience). Proper swimming attire. Any fit clothing made of synthetic materials, such as dri-fit clothes. Rashguards and cycling shorts are acceptable (no board shorts nor shorts with pockets). Please be there 10mins before your scheduled lesson for shower and changing time.Rental: Goggles (PHP50) Swim cap (PHP50)

How much is your swimming class per session? We don’t offer per session classes. We only offer full packaged program classes. Why? At Swimtravel PH, we firmly believe that your journey to a life-vest free swimming should follow a step-by-step process. It should be consistent and continuous – no shortcuts.
We take your learning journey very seriously. That is the reason why we require all our students to book at least one session once a week. This is to ensure that they won’t forget their lessons.
We want all our students to be water safe once they have finished their program with us. Every session included in our program will equip our students with the necessary knowledge on how to survive in the deep water – an important first step in preventing drownings.
Is there an age limit when learning how to swim? I’m already 50+ years old. Will I still learn how to swim? DEFINITELY! Learning how to swim has no age limit. We believe that you are never too old to learn how to swim.
As adults, we understand the importance of staying fit and healthy. However, as we grow older, our bodies deteriorate. Swimming is an effective and low impact exercise to help you maintain an active lifestyle, but you have to learn it the PROPER WAY.
At Swimtravel PH, we made some necessary arrangements (based from a scientifically proven method) where we made sure that it will be easier for adults to learn how to swim. We don’t simply teach the methods used in competitive swimming for our Beginner + Survival Program, since these are normally taught to kids or teenagers.
Our method is designed for ADULTS OF ALL AGES, meaning it’s easy and low impact.

Why don’t our coaches normally dip in the pool during lessons? The Swimtravel PH teaching method, based from and certified in Europe but has been continuously developed here in the Philippines, is designed as such that our coaches won’t be needing to be in the pool with their students to teach them how to swim. We steer away from the traditional, sometimes outdated, forms of teaching. We don’t need nor use the aid of any floatation devices to teach our students how to swim in the deep pool. We want our students to realize that they can float effortlessly without relying to it!
We trained our coaches to know how to clearly and effectively communicate their swimming instructions and techniques to their students. They don’t simply just give out instructions and ask their students to blindly follow or just copy their movements, but they make sure that the students understand why each and every movement is important. Poor communication comprises the overall quality of teaching.
However, if for some reason that the student is having difficulty with the instructions, rest assured that when the need arises to actually dip in the pool, our coaches would be willing and happy to do so. ✌🏼
The coaches will also be able to guide, teach, and give the proper feedback if they see their students’ every movement, from their heads to their toes. That is the VERY REASON why our coaches are positioned in a place where it is elevated – outside the pool.
Another reason is that it is for everyone’s safety. If the coaches are in an elevated position, they would be able to see all corners of the deep pool, thus will be able to see everything that is happening within the pool.
It’s also significant to note the importance of minimizing contact with the students, especially during this pandemic. We value the importance of practicing the proper social distancing protocols between our students and our instructors.
Remember, there are different ways of teaching. This is how we prefer to do it. We promise significant results, all we ask is your willingness to learn and your complete trust in our method and our coaches.
