What our students say

Abongile Sonkosi

When I first entered the swimming pool I was so scared and all I could think about was drowning. Ronen, was very patient with me from the word go. He knew when to encourage me and when to give me support. I felt so safe and supported in my journey. Ronen challenged me to let go and enjoy myself. I feel more confident now in my swimming. This class was more than a swimming lesson but it was a life lesson for me. He would say "Abongile relax you do not have to be in control the whole time". ote

I joined Aqua Hero after a quick search online about swimming lessons for adults. I was not expecting anything special because I couldn't think how anything for adults can be entertaining, but I was awfully wrong! I've had the incredible opportunity to be coached by Ronen and Stefan and they are amazing! They are very professional, focused on getting you comfortable in the water and be the best at it. On top of it all, they have cool music in the background and fun exercises, along a great eye for detail.

Looking back at my swimming journey made me realize the high amount of progress and goals accomplished. I’ve started with a baggage of fear of deep water and of jumpings. Although the start was bumpy, Ronen knew when to support me and when I needed a bit of a push in order to overcome my fears. Stefan has an incredible eye for details and helped me to consolidate my swimming techniques. The classes are more than a usual swimming class. They are filled with music, fun, comfortability as well as with supporting coaches and fellow colleagues. I am super excited to work together with the Aqua Hero team towards my next goals and push myself to reach even higher levels of swimming.
