Everyone claims to be the best, so how are we different?
It is not too respectful to say that we are better than others, so we are just going to tell you our pros and differences. The right to make the conclusions is yours!
Our story began in 2015 when our co-founder coaches decided to create own school with a “better” teaching system based on their own teaching experience in other swimming clubs.
You have finished your beginning course and now you train on your own. Well done! How can you know that you are improving if you are working without coach’s supervision? The only true indicator of whether or not you are improving in the water is to implement a test to measure your swimming improvement.
We feel responsible about how our students will “enter” in their swimming life this summer. They should do it, because Stockholm has fantastic places for bathing. However we should warn you about the differences between pool and open water swimming.
Before starting a new course with a new group we always send a welcome letter with some easy tips. Slippers always take part in our guidelines. When you pack a bag for your lessons, pool sandals are the same important as a towel, or even more.
You could go barefoot in the swimming pool if it’s allowed, but pool footwear offers two important benefits (which is why it’s often required): safety and foot health.
And we are here to tell you more about our wonderful neighborhood.
Part of the Royal National City Park, the lush Haga Park (or just Haga) is situated just north of Stockholm in the suburb of Solna. Founded by the monarch Gustav III in 1780-1797, Haga is Sweden’s foremost example of an English landscape park, and one of Sweeden’s most popular recreational areas. It’s also the site of many historical landmarks.
We talk so much about swimming in Stockholm, but one of the side of swimming is joyful bathing in Stockholm.
Temperature is getting higher each day. So it is time to get ready and know the options about bathing in Stockholm. As people, addicted to swimming , we can guarantee by our own experience that it is safe (clean water) and popular (with locals and visitors alike) to enjoy swimming and sunbathing in Stockholm during summer days!

Once we talked about fear of water, which is so common among beginners.
If you get anxious around bodies of water, you may believe that in the water you would sink to the ground like a stone. Maybe we surprise you but water in fact supports the human body very well. It most cases people can float easily without using their limbs as long as their lungs are filled with air.
This is because your body, being made of 60% of water, is slightly less dense than water provided that your lungs are filled with air. Do you remember Archimedes’ Principle from school:
The first step is always the hardest, so they say. It’s the step that most people never take.
They never begin, and thus by default, they can never finish. Everyone has a dream. Something they want to do or accomplish. Yet, many never start the journey to make their dream a reality. Many people never take that step. Either they are too afraid. Or too busy. Or too… whatever they need to tell themselves. Read more
