I remember it like it was yesterday. Once on vacation, I persuaded him to go into the water with me, and we began to learn how to swim together. It took me about three days to teach him how to do a proper freestyle. From that moment, a teenager who hadn't been able to swim for so many years had the skills needed to swim like a fish.
I have been swimming since a very early age. I spent 18 years competing in the pool, 7 of them professionally. Swimming is not just my favorite sport but my lifestyle. It opened new horizons and brought many new adventures and experiences into my life. Now, I want to open the world of Tampa aquatics to you.

Maria has been teaching our 3 year old twice a week now for a couple months. She’s always on time and comes ready to go. Our son has already shown so much progress and confidence in the water. I can’t believe he’s swimming without any floaties and is also diving for diving toys!! I don’t know how she got him to love swimming because he’s usually very cautious and super shy. Best investment we’ve committed to in terms of activities for our son ever. Highly recommend!!!
I booked Maria back in November 2022 for my 5-year-old son so he could continue learning how to swim. He had taken lessons at other places, but it was slow progress. He ended up with basic level swim knowledge but was afraid to move out of the 3ft area. We started out with three classes, to see how my son would do with Maria, and he took to her immediately. He listened to her instructions and is excited to do the classes. We have been consistent with classes since then and he is now swimming on his own, above and underwater, in the deep end - All because of Maria! I would highly recommend her!!
My husband and I booked with this academy in desperate need for learning how to swim for our upcoming trip, and I must say we definitely enjoyed our instructor. Marsha was very VERY patient with us lol and provided great tips to work on after every session. My 2-year-old loved her so much that he was trying to learn!! I would HIGHLY recommend having her as an instructor , she makes the experience worthwhile!
Maria is an excellent professional swim coach for my two kids (8 and 5yo). My kids have excelled greatly within a matter of a few classes and are definitely lot more comfortable swimming in their own now. Thank you for your swimming mastery, flexibility and kindness, as well as providing my children with the confidence and competence to be safe around water.
I do triathlons and was looking for help with my swimming technique and speed, and I had such a great experience working with Masha! She put together a whole program of drills and exercises to help get me where I want to be! She's a natural teacher and super passionate about swimming, my adult swim lessons with her were so fun and helpful!
I never learned how to swim as a child, and I wanted to be able to enjoy the pool with my children. Finding someone who teaches adult swim lessons was tricky, because many programs are for kids only, so I'm so grateful for Masha and fast swim academy. I learned how to float and move through the water in just a few lessons, and now we're working on learning different swimming strokes. Masha's lessons are really fun and supportive, I recommend her for any adult learning to swim!
I was working with coach Masha remotely to prepare for the various meets like European and World pentathlon championships. We were working for nearly a year together on my swimming. Masha also included gym program for me. I saw results within a few weeks of working. Highly recommend!
Maria is excellent with children, I would recommend her to anyone who wants to teach their child how to swim.
I wanted to get fit, but it's really hard to get into sports for me. Maria created a personalised swimming lesson plan for me. Not only I got fit, but got more comfortable in the water.
Masha is hands down the best swimming coach in the entire Tampa Bay Area! I'm in my mid-30s, and I thought my swimming days were long gone, but she proved me wrong. Her coaching style is truly motivational and inspiring, and she pushes me to be my best every single session. I feel so lucky to have found her after doing thorough research.
Masha's dedication to her students is unparalleled, and she has not only helped me improve my swimming skills but also boosted my confidence in all aspects of life. If you're looking for a coach that will help you reach your full potential and reignite your passion for swimming, look no further than Masha. She is an incredible inspiration, and I can't thank her enough for everything she's done for me. Go Masha! You are simply the best!
Many years have passed since then, but to this day, I see people like my little brother on the beach in St Pete, Clearwater, or Tampa:
Adults and children are sitting on the sand, consumed by their aquaphobia.
It's heartbreaking to watch people miss out on so many positive experiences simply because they don't know how to swim...
That's why I decided to open my swim classes in Tampa: to pass on my love and passion for swimming to everyone around me. Together with my team, we have created a unique Tampa swimming program that includes swim lessons for kids and adults swim lessons so that all of us can fully immerse in the world of water. Our swim programs are adapted for every client. If you are busy for traveling to the swimming pool, we have a home swim lessons program for infants, tots, kids, and adults. So sign up today for our swim lessons in Tampa and get coached by the diverse group of swimming nerds.
