Aqualogic encourages the parents to take active participation in the learning process of the child.
— Bim Zulueta, mom of Alo (started at 15 months)
I am very happy with the method of teaching as it is similar to what Joel was learning in Australia, therefore the routine and songs were familiar to him already.
— Kaylene Powell, mom of Joel (started at 13 months)
The teaching is personalized based on every child’s capacity, and not one general lesson. Because of that, everyone’s skills are honed to the best of their capacity.
— Trisia Bustamante, mom of Sarita (started at 18 months)
Lorenzo was immediately very comfortable with the class and his teachers. I signed him up for soccer class and after a few lessons, he refused to go back and said he only wants to go to his swimming classes!
— Kimmy Flaviano, mom of Lorenzo (started at 4 years)
The benefit of swimming instruction at Aqualogic is the emphasis they put in developing the correct form and technique in swimming which will serve as a strong foundation for Joey if and when she decides to take swimming as a competitive sport.
— Mel Abesamis, dad of Joey (started at 6 years old)
The teachers are very gentle with, and understanding of, the children. Anxiety with the water is addressed at the outset so that the child gets comfortable quickly. The lessons are fun because they involve a lot of play. The children probably do not even notice that they are in school.
— Ariel Arriola, dad of Martin (started at 5 years) and Bianca (started at 2 years)
My daughter Reese was enrolled in another swim school prior to Aqualogic. She cried endlessly and refused to go in the water. She was petrified with her instructor. I was hesitant to further put her through swim school since she was so traumatized. But just after her first session with Aqualogic, she voluntarily went in the water and became very confident. She can now jump on her own and swim few meters without hesitation.
— Nikki Ng, mom of Brett (started at 4 years) and Reese (started at 2 years)
What I like about it is it is never rushed. Students learn at their own pace. The instructors persistently remind the students the correct form and they are very patient.
— Mark Bonifacio, 29 years old, PR Executive
The swimming technique is very efficient. If you get the stroke right, you can do laps for hours and not really get tired. It’s like Zen swimming!
— Mel Dolera, 30 years old, Training Director
Not only do I have the confidence to compete in triathlons, but I have now discovered the joy of swimming.
— Raffy Puno, 37 years old, CEO
As a surfer, I wanted to be more confident swimming in open water, and because of the conditions of being in a rip current, being drifted occasionally in the ocean, I wanted to know more how to improve how to swim efficiently, without tiring myself. Since my 1st 4 classes with Aquatech, I began to notice the big difference in my strokes and my form.
