If you want to know the first step to improving your life today, the answer is simple:
I learned how to swim when I was 8 years old and I swam through high school. However, since high school I have not done any swimming. I am now 38 years old and I was recently asked to be part of a relay team for the Phuket triathlon in December. I was elected to do the swim since I had some swimming experience. I explained, "I have not done any swimming in 20 years!" I knew I needed some help and needed it fast.See Video
Read moreI did some research on the internet and came across David and Just Swim. I decided not to pursue traditional swimming instruction which I had done in the past and got little from it. David asked me to stop swimming my old stroke and make a commitment to start over like I knew nothing about swimming. I could already feel the difference after my second session with him. After 4 sessions, I am already a better swimmer than I was in high school. I have never felt this comfortable in water. I feel like I am part of the water. I am no longer fighting the water's gravity nor its resistance but rather I am working with both of them. Just Swim instruction works! Now, I look forward to each training session and hope to improve each time I swim. I am confident that I will complete the swim and help my relay team in Phuket. Thank You, David
Best investment I have made in years! I am still surprised by the improvement in my swim speed and stamina, let alone the fact that I now look like a pro... well almost! David's teaching style allowed me to transition in 4 hours to the new technique.See Video

I have been a runner for most of my life. When I was living in Hong Kong, I decided that I wanted to enter a triathlon. However, I was not a swimmer and this I knew would be a challenge for me. I prepared for the swim in the pool but my technique was so poor that I was exhausted after a length. I hired a swim teacher to help me. He instructed me to move my arms faster and kick harder. This just exhausted me further. After the first 100 meters of the triathlon swim, I had to switch to breaststroke because I was so tired. I was very disappointed. I moved to Thailand and found David's website.See Video
Read moreI decided I would give an instructor another try. This time it was totally different. It was also the best training/instructor experiences I have ever had. David's training is broken down into several easy to learn units. I could feel progress each and every lesson. David has a real passion for teaching and he made learning to swim enjoyable. This was the opposite to my experience in Hong Kong. The Just Swim system is ideal for distance swimming. It taught me to swim in a relaxed way at a reasonable speed without finishing the swim drained of energy. This allows me to save energy for the bike and run leg. It took me about 3 months to go from struggling to make a length of the pool to completing my first sprint triathlon distance of 750 meters. Swimming is now real fun and it wouldn't be like that without David and the Just Swim approach. Thanks David and please keep teaching!
Here's my shameless endorsement and promotion, as a student: David Mielziner is a swimming stud. I went from "I don't know how to swim across a 30 meter pool" to doing 1,500 meters in > 40 minutes after only 7 lessons. If I can do this, anyone can...Thanks David!

I've been swimming no more than 500m of freestyle daily. Today I easily managed 1000m of Freestyle and then hopped into several 100m of breaststroke. No fatigue, no muscle soreness. I can personally attest to the efficiency of the Just Swim approach.

In the 'old' way of swimming it was impossible to make such huge increments of distance - because the 'traditional' method requires such power (pulling/kicking). I was just muscling my way through the water. I was so fatigued at the end! So I had to do more to get fitter - I thought. But no more! Just Swim is such a comfortable, easy way to swim - just has taken me time to re-learn a good method, after many decades of futile brutally bashing, splashing and panting - ugghh! Thank you very much David. No stopping me now - I'm happily learning the next stroke

David has been working with a few of our clients at Fitcorp Asia over the past year. I have to say that another great area of David's expertise is not only his ability to teach efficiency in the water but also to help those overcome their 'fear' of water. David has found his passion, is a great communicator and instills confidence in his clients from the first second. Thanks David
