Learn to swim in Tampa, FL, at the leading swim school

A few words from Maria about how and why she decided to start her own swim classes Tampa
My career as a swimming instructor began long before I chose to teach swim lessons in Tampa as my career. My first student was my dear brother, who had feared water for almost all of his childhood. He wouldn't trust the instructors at my swim club, but he trusted me well enough to teach him the basics of swimming.

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.

Our lead professional swim coach

  • Maria Rezhylo

    3x World Record Holder and 2x All-American swimmer

    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.

Why learn to swim?

Here are 6 reasons from our swimming experts on why every child and adult has to develop swimming skills.
  • Improved cardiovascular health
    Regular swimming reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure, and other cardiac-related diseases. With our private swim lessons, you'll reach open new fitness horizons for yourself.
  • Muscle growth
    Various swimming strokes allow you to work all your body's muscles simultaneously. No matter at what age you start, swim lessons can give you a more balanced, well-developed, athletic body composition than any other sport can do. Learn front crawl, back crawl, breaststroke, and butterfly, and become a confident swimmer at the pool.
  • Improved mobility
    It's not a secret that swimmers have superior postural mobility. Parents and their kids can improve their overall motor function when learning to swim together.
  • Reduced pain and stiffness 
    Research proves that regular swimming lessons improve the function of your joints and reduce stiffness in your muscles, including cases when it's osteoporosis induced.
  • Drowning prevention
    It's not a surprise that drowning is one of the leading causes of death for children and adults in the US. Swim lessons supply you with all the essential water safety skills and abilities and are proven to reduce drowning rates by 88% in children and teenagers from 1 to 19 years.
  • Fun experiences
    Through our swimming lessons in Tampa, FL, beginners can unfold all the fun with our private swim instructor. Get ready for the upcoming pool party or trip to the beach. Boating, kayaking, surfing, and paddle boarding with your friends are one step closer after you sign up for our classes.

What our clients say about us
Olevia Metry

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!!!

Carla P. De Maria

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!!

Nikkea Taylor

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!

Ksenia Shabelsky

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.

Kristin Muller

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!

Alex Volchegursky

Maria is excellent with children, I would recommend her to anyone who wants to teach their child how to swim.

Kristina Pysmenska

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.

Alejandro Garay

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!
