I found the Farnsworth Swim School on Yelp, and decided to give it a try. Without a doubt, this is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I am a 34 year old mother and police officer, and I did not know how to swim. For 34 years, I waded in the shallow end, sat at the edge of the pool, missed out on pool parties, beach days, snorkeling in Hawaii, and many other water-related adventures due to my fear of the water. Deciding to learn to swim was an easy decision to make because I knew that my children’s lives and the safety of the community I serve depended on it. I just needed the right person to guide me.
I signed up for five 40-minute private lessons and I was fortunate enough to have Jaynie Farnsworth as my instructor. I was apprehensive that I’d actually learn to swim in 5 days, but I had an amazing instructor who was extremely knowledgeable, personable, patient, genuinely cares about water safety, and made learning really fun. After five days, I was swimming freestyle, backstroke, floating, treading and diving!! That’s insane and I could hardly believe this is my body doing all these things! Jaynie taught me the importance of proper breathing, which made a world of difference. She has a motto of “swimming smarter, not harder” and it totally makes sense. Swimming feels natural and easy to me now, it’s amazing. I’m very excited to get in the water with my family and continue learning and building on the foundation that Jaynie laid for me.
I definitely recommend Farnsworth Swim School. It was worth every penny. Thanks Jaynie!
