We are pleased to offer a personal trainer (PT) in the AdO arena.
With a personal trainer, you get optimal follow-up adapted to your level.
In addition to being fast and versatile in the pool, our PTs are skilled at seeing where "the water is pressing" and explaining in a good way what can be done to move forward. They also know that everyone is different and take the individual as a starting point. They all have a passion for teaching swimming at all levels.
We also have an instructor who can teach AquaRun as a training method.
See the purchase conditions for PT for more information.
