The pool and lockerroom Milbank facility felt very skeevie and rundown. Locker and showers are rusty and very old. Which made me want to turn around as soon as I walked in. I thought about turning around, but decided to give it ago since other ppl were in the water and seemed ok. The instructors were very nice, but spoke in a very low tone which was hard to hear at times.

I really enjoyed my first class, the instructor was great at making sure we were very comfortable and relax. She explained each technique in a simple straightforward manner and I can definitely see myself learning how to swim soon!

From Our Editors

With pools spread across more than a dozen locations in New York and New Jersey, Physique Swimming has taught countless adults and kids how to feel confident in the water. Here are a few other ways the schools distinguish themselves:

  • Every instructor is Red Cross–certified. Physique's founder, who spent 25 years as a swim coach himself, requires that each of his instructors is certified in lifeguarding, first aid, and CPR.
  • Instructors promote a positive atmosphere. They counsel parents on how to help their children feel good about swimming, including teaching parents to never show disappointment if their child isn't mastering a skill right away. They also teach parents not to compare their child to another kid or a mermaid. And when kids finish a swimming level, instructors give them a certificate of completion to remind them that they can achieve their goals.
  • They use yoga to teach swimming. In addition to traditional swim classes, Physique offers a water yoga workshop that blends swim lessons with yoga to teach the importance of breath control.
