1-2-1 lessons

1-2-1 lessons for adults and children

*Please note: All 121 lessons are exclusively offered to Total Fitness Members

Why 1-2-1 lessons?

The major benefit of 121 lessons is that they can be tailored to your individual needs. Different people learn in different ways, so our teachers will take the time to get to know you and teach you in a way that brings the best results. This will mean that you will see progress much quicker than in a group environment.


Adult 121 Lessons

Learn to swim

1 in 5 adults in the UK are unable to swim – but it’s never too late to learn! 121 lessons give you the opportunity to learn to swim at your own pace, in a private environment. We follow the Swim England framework so you learn the correct techniques from fully qualified and enthusiastic teachers. 

Technique training

We also have lessons available for adults who are looking to improve their technique. This can be perfect for people who are trying to shave a few seconds off their time if they compete in triathlons, or are swimming for a club. Our coaches can help you improve your stroke hugely with specific drills and exercises that are proven to bring results.


Child 121 Lessons

Our 121 swimming lessons follow the same learning journey as our group lessons but your child will be given complete, undivided attention for the 30 minutes of the lesson. This will mean that your child will progress far quicker than in a group scenario, because our instructor will be able to work with your child for longer.

Don’t just take our word for it, we have a few quotes from parents below who take their child to our 121 lessons: 

"In a matter of a few weeks my child has gone from strength to strength, his technique has improved so much.

My son has Asperger's syndrome and sensory issues. I spoke to the SwimStars teacher and she listened to my tips on how to keep him engaged.

She has been exceptional working with him so far. The teacher is a SwimStar Superstar!

Getting the right person to work with my child makes such a difference."

"Very pleased, happy to pay the extra for the exceptional improvements made."
