Hello, my name is Leonie Beck and I learned to swim as a 4-year-old child in Augsburg at the swimming school FREDS SWIM ACADEMY with Verena Lacher with the SWIMTRAINER “Classic”. The SWIMTRAINER are great because the children are in the right swimming position, which makes learning to swim easier.

In the meantime I have become a successful swimmer and participated in several international championships such as the Summer Olympics and World Championships.

I can highly recommend the FREDS SWIM ACADEMY and the system with the SWIMTRAINER and wish all children success and fun in learning to swim.
