I just wanted to say thank you again for an amazing week of watching my babies progress with their water safety. Shannon, you are an incredible instructor and so patient and kind. You made both Ava and Mason so comfortable with you, and you completely took to each of their very different personalities so perfectly. Julie, I’m so impressed with your company and have already recommended Swim with Mr. Blue to so many people. I attached Ava’s test video from today. My husband and I can’t stop watching it, and our family and friends are so amazed (she just turned 2)! We are very impressed with Mason’s progression as well (he’s a tougher swim student to get through to lol). Thanks again! We look forward to continuing with you guys and making our kids super strong super swimmers!

I wanted to let you know that although I was your worst parent participant… Payton is doing great! Payton is diving for rockets and swimming above and below the water and can swim from side to side without assistance. She jumps into the deep end of the pool and is not afraid to go under the water. Thank You so much for giving her the skills to swim and most of all survive. We swim every day and I am enjoying the pool with Payton now the she can swim independently and I do not have to be so fearful.

Thanks Again!

My son was never a big fan of the pool from the time he was very young. He was finally convinced to go in by a Spiderman “floaty suit” that gave him confidence in the water. He had no interest in leaving it behind and saw absolutely no reason to learn to swim without it. However, Julie was great at gaining his confidence quickly and by day 3 he was swimming like a fish! It was truly amazing to watch and he hasn’t slowed down since. He now loves to swim – not only in the pool but in the ocean. He was actually riding a bike around a friend’s pool recently and accidentally fell in, fully clothed, bike and all. Everyone commented about how calmly he swam to the side and got out of the pool. He never would have been able to do that without Julie’s coaching. Having her teach my son to swim was a great decision on my part and I highly recommend her to anyone.

There is no greater feeling of peace for a parent to know that your twin daughters who are not yet three years old, would be perfectly capable of swimming to the edge of the pool if they were to ever fall in. What an incredible summer we had with our two year old daughters watching them jump, splash and swim in the pool every day. The learn to swim program was a great success for our family.

Let me start off by saying that this swimming experience was MAGICAL! Julie is an absolutely incredible and quite talented person who was able to get our 3.5 year old spirited and strong-willed daughter, Kayla to swim in 3 days. I am absolutely astonished at the quick progression of Kayla’s ability to swim. Being Bostonians, we don’t have the accessibility of pools and weather as in Florida . We decided to hire Julie to teach Kayla to swim during our week vacation in Florida. I have previously exposed my three year old daughter for group swim lessons. I can honestly say that the one on one attention and instruction from Julie is so much more effective than these group sessions. Julie always remains calm, and she moves Kayla naturally and smoothly through each session. After the second session, Kayla didn’t cry during bathtime when I poured water over her head. I saw progress so quickly. Now bathtime is so much more enjoyable. And after all the tears, screams, and anxiety seen in the third session, Kayla went back into the pool with us an hour later and was jumping and swimming to the wall as if she was doing this for months. After witnessing our daughter move easily from fear of the water to singing, laughing and jumping in the pool, we decided to have Julie teach our 2 year old. The DVD and book are excellent tools to assist with the 5-day program. In addition to teaching our child how to swim, Julie helped us become more aware of all the safety issues. She took the time to educate my entire family including my parents who own a pool and live on the beach. We feel like we owe a lot to Julie. Money seems irrelevant when it comes to the prevention of our children drowning. We NEED to know that our children will know what to do if they accidentally fall into the pool. Thank you Julie for all that you have taught us. We will never forget you! And we look forward to many fun years of playing in the pool and ocean.

When my Aunt told me about Julie from an article she read I thought “yeah sure, another gimmick”! As a divorced mother with a young son, I called Miss Julie in a desperate attempt to get my almost 5 year old to swim. He would go in the pool and hang on me or my Aunt. Not allowing swimmy arms for a long time, he hung on a tube. Finally he got arm swimmy’s and that was as far as he was going. I couldn’t figure out why my super smart kid wouldn’t swim or even attempt to try it. When I called Miss Julie, I could feel her confidence but couldn’t imagine how she could teach my son when I could not, and I am a great swimmer. The price knocked me off the chair but I knew she was the one! I wasn’t sure what to do. Then I realized that my sons life was at risk every day because he didn’t know how to swim, especially here in Florida. I would’ve been devastated or worse if anything ever happened to him. I decided to hire her to teach my son how to swim and you know what? I thank God every day for bringing her into our lives!! On the very 1st day, my son was swimming. The fear was gone! Just like that. Every morning for 5 days, my son looked forward to learning from Miss Julie. This is a real testimony. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions. I truly believe that it is worth every penny to hire Miss Julie to teach your child how to swim. The peace of mind she has afforded me is worth 1 million dollars and in hindsight, I only wish I did this 4 years ago. I owe Miss Julie my life and will be forever grateful.
