Our clients love to swim with 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!

Maria Rezhylo

I dedicated over 20 years of my life to the world of aquatics. From learning to kick and float as a little kid to setting World Records in swimming as a professional swimmer, I can honestly say this sport taught me invaluable lessons and opportunities that go beyond the pool lanes.

Today, I share my knowledge and passion for swimming with adults and kids of all ages, skills, and abilities. As a former professional athlete with a disability, my primary goal is to share my expertise with special-needs swimmers and help them succeed in and out of the pool.

Seeing my clients overcome their fears and obtain the critical life skill of swimming has been the most humbling experience of my life. Just like my students get out of their comfort zone in the pool, I challenge myself to be a better swimmer and coach every day.
I am here to prove to you that swimming doesn't require a special talent or physical abilities. It's simply a skill that can be obtained with evidence-based instruction & dedication to the process.
