Howard is truly a master swim instructor. He did an excellent job teaching me how to swim. Aside from showing me proper swim techniques, he helped me overcome my fear of drowning I developed as a child. Howard helped me learn how to breathe out under water. He also taught me floor and weightlifting exercises to increasing my strength for swimming. As an instructor, Howard was professional, patient, and caring. He broke down the swimming instruction into manageable pieces, which helped me learn and progress easily. As a cancer patient with shortness of breath and fatigue issues, I appreciated Howard’s sensitivity to my needs. He always encouraged me to do my best. As a result of his instruction, I am proud to say I learned the side stroke, fundamental back stroke, back stroke, breast stroke, and crawl. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Howard. I highly recommend him as an outstanding swim instructor and personal trainer.
