After 15 years of practicing swimming and high-level competitions, I then thought of passing on my know-how as well as my experience with passionate people in the same field as me; the aquatic environment.
I succeeded after 5 years of studies to invest myself in the field of aquatic sport in order to obtain my diploma as an International Swimming Coach.
Perfect! The session with Hic was really positive and productive. I am a complete beginner. I can tell that he wants to understand my perspective, what my objectives are.
Then try to adapt his coaching style to each client.
On top of this, he has patience whilst also having a good sense to keep me improving
Perfect! I am very impressed and trilled with my grandsons class. Hic is a very experienced and patient instructor, he has totally transformed Luka’s confidence in the water. He now loves swimming even going under water. Hic has designed a training program tailored to my grandsons ability and age. Luka absolutely loves his one to one class.
Perfect! First lesson with Hic was great. He helped me get comfortable in the water, thus making it easy to apply the techniques. I found the lesson to be extremely useful. He certainly knows how to approach beginners for best results.
Perfect! He is incredibly kind and knowledgeable. He tailored the first session to my specific skills and abilities. And he encouraged me every step of the way.
Excellent! Réassurant et persévérant maigres mes difficultés a être à l’aise avec l’eau
Reassuring and persevering despite my difficulties in being comfortable with the water
Perfect! Great teacher. Vast swimming experience. Really helps you learn swimming. Good value for money.
- Hic's response : Surinder is a serious and dynamic student. He wants to learn breathing and be able to use freestyle swimming stroke as cardio sport to burn calories. We worked breathing with simple and effective exercises. He has made excellent progress during the first session. I am looking forward to help him master breathing and freestyle in general.
Perfect! Hic is very patient and experienced.
- Hic's response : Amy wanted her son to be at the same level as his friends in the swimming lessons at his school. 8-year-old Ryan now feels more confident in the pool. After 2 sessions, he can swim 10 meters using his legs and arms. I can't wait for him to become a future swimming competitor because he is able to learn so quickly
Perfect! Hic certainly knows what he is talking about and I think I made good progress in the first lesson thanks to Hic’s clear methodology and instructions.
- Hic's response : Andrew has competed in triathlons but could only swim the breaststroke, which made him feel slower than other freestyle swimmers . He wants to learn front crawl in order to reduce his time in the first race of the triathlon. Last weekend was his second session with me. I'm happy he was able to propel and perform freestyle in a short distance. We will work together to improve his breathing and technique so he can swim at least 400m in Super Brent Triathlon and 750m in Sprint. Looking forward to showing him later strategies and tips for swimming in triathlon and making him enjoy his passion more.
Perfect! His directions and guidance were competency based which made things more direct. Great coach!
Perfect! He tried to understand my needs and then focused on key areas so, the lesson was pretty tailored to help me achieve goals. He also communicated clearly with me both in terms of logistics as well as during the class.
- Hic's response : Ahmed is an excellent student, he wants to learn the 4 strokes and has made excellent progress in freestyle stroke from the first session.
Perfect! Hic is responsive. Looking forward to taking the session with him!
- Hic's response : A serious and reliable person to work with. I am looking forward to teach her 5-year-old child in London.

Hic is professional, patience, supportive and overall superb tutor, he encouraging me and makes me enjoying the water. I still have a long way to go with him.
Excellent trainer, i have learnt so fast from him. he is very experienced.
An amazing personality, i definitely recommend him.
Hic is intuitive about everyone’s capabilities or weak points and tailors his classes accordingly. What I appreciate is that he cares about my improvements and achievements and that makes me feel rewarded and encouraged from the first class.
Hic is extremely professional. He has the wonderful ability to encourage one to raise the bar. He combines his ability with patience and warmth. I look forward to many lessons with him
He knows very well how to improve his student's rhythm to swim faster. Hic gives very good recommendations to improve swimming techniques. He is very good at motivating people and giving more, and doing better every time, but in a fun way. He is a very good coach who can do his job perfectly in English and in French too.
Hic à une bonne approche. Il est sympathique et pédagogique. Je me suis surpris a réaliser des choses à la fin de la séance. Je le recommande.
¡Es un placer ir a sus clases! El entrenamiento siempre es dinámico, divertido y exigente de acuerdo a nuestras capacidades. Además, siempre tiene en cuenta la variabilidad de niveles y consigue que todos tengamos la mejor experiencia :)
EN & IT ----- He was my water polo coach at the cite universitaire of Paris. We were in a group with different backgrounds (who barely swims and who has played water polo for years), he was extremely successful in getting everyone to agree, to reserve attention for beginners and to listen to the most experienced.--------E' stato il mio allenatore di pallanuoto presso la cite universitaire di paris. Essendoci ragazzi con differenti background (chi nuota a malapena e chi ha giocato a pallanuoto per anni), è riuscito in maniera estremamente efficace a mettere tutti d'accordo, a riservare attenzione per i principianti e ad ascoltare i più esperti
At the beginning of my first session with Hic, I couldn't even float and I had to hang on the wall all the time. At the end of the session (1 hour) and thanks to Hic's simple but effective exercises, I was able to float, and even swim the entire length of the pool. I will continue learning with Hic. I highly recommend him to all beginners.
I am a beginner in this sport and Hic knows how to pass on his passion and adapt the exercises to everyone's level! He is very serious, a pedagogue and his lessons are entertaining! I enjoyed having classes with him!
Thank you very much. Hic is an excellent teacher, very competent in swimming, and his method is very effective. Even a good swimmer should take lessons with him if he wants to improve his technique and speed.
Hic was able to correct my technique in just a few sessions. He brings real expertise to all strokes. He intervenes in the water. This makes it easier to understand the corrections and techniques to be applied. I highly recommend him.
