Testimonials

Barb has been our daughter’s swim instructor for the past several months. Jacqueline is 5 years old and Barb was able to help her gain confidence in the water with the very first class. Within the first several private classes, Jacqueline has learned how to swim a short distance without a flotation device.

Barb has taught her safety and rules around the pool. She is now able to get out of the pool by herself and is learning to back float. Her kicks are strong and her endurance has increased progressively at every class. Barb’s teaching skills are wonderful. She has a great personality and has been a remarkable teacher for our young daughter. She is always encouraging and cheerful. I strongly recommend Barb as a swim instructor. Our investment has certainly paid off as our daughter truly enjoys swimming.

When I signed-up my eight-year-old twins for private swim lessons with Barb Seiden, they were afraid of the water. Starting out, my son would cry from fear and really didn’t like getting his face wet.  That was almost a year ago.  Now, thanks to Barb, both kids jump in the deep end of the pool.  Barb is patient, knowledgeable and I could tell straight away that she knew how to work with kids.  My kids have learned the how to tread water, how to breathe, and the various swimming strokes.  More importantly, they learned how to let go of their fear.  They enjoy being in the water and I have to basically demand they come out of the pool at the end of the lesson because they don’t want to get out.  I could not be more impressed and thankful for the work she’s done with my kids.

Barb cares about her swimmers and their progress, and that shines through when she works with them. My kids learned a life skill that they enjoy, and we are forever grateful to Barb for her patience, judgment and expertise.  I would highly recommend Barb Seiden for any parent looking to enlist their child in swim lessons.

My daughter has been taking swim lessons with Miss Barb for the past year. When we first started, she was hesitant to even get into the water. Now, she can’t wait to get in! She swims across the pool independently, retrieves toys from the bottom of the pool, and simply enjoys being challenged with the gentle, loving way that Miss Barb uses. My daughter feels confident being in the pool and it is amazing to watch her succeed in this way!

My daughter started swim lessons with Barb a year ago as a non swimmer. Barb has been patient but firm and has encouraged my daughter to work hard. She has become confident in the water this year and is now a really good swimmer.

Just had the girls at our neighborhood pool for a few hours – they got so many compliments on how well they swam, how fearless they were about jumping in, etc. We love you Barb!

My husband and I have been working out with Barb for quite some time now.  My husband started doing a boot camp with her first, and he liked her so much that he began taking her TRX classes.  Soon after, I had to see what all the fuss was about.  It wasn’t long before my sister and best friend were working out with her too.  We (my husband and I) decided to do personal training with Barb.  I had just had a baby and he was at his heaviest weight.  We weren’t sure how it was going to work with us having different goals and being at different levels physically, but Barb exceeded our expectations.  We are well on our way to the goals we set and it is all thanks to Barb!  She is not only our trainer but our friend.

I’m so glad I found Barb. When my physical therapy ended, I didn’t know where to go or who to see. I couldn not have found a better professional to put me on the road to recovery. I plan to continue to work with Barb to maximize my mobility, strength, and overall wellness. Thank you for the thoughtful input you always provide. You’re the best!

I began working out with Barb this spring, and I have to admit, I was a bit terrified. I never worked out with a trainer before meeting her, and I definitely prefer to take yoga classes and blend into a crowd—well, it’s a bit hard to do that when you sign up with a trainer!  Barb is incredibly knowledgeable and has a friendly and encouraging approach.  By week two we were like old friends.  We laugh and chat and I sweat more than I knew was possible! Each week I feel stronger and more confident.  Though I am continually challenged by Barb, I always look forward to our sessions (which we eventually increased to 2x per week!), and feel fantastic when we are finished.  I have had some issues with a reoccurring back injury and have been able to continue working out. Barb modifies the work out when my back is achy, yet she doesn’t go easy on me, which is great. In years past, I would not have worked out at all if my back was acting up!  When I’m feeling good (which is most weeks), she incorporates back strengthening exercises into our routine.  I could go on for days about Barb’s training- it’s truly custom and truly perfect for me! THANK YOU!

Barb made me feel comfortable right away. I had a weight problem that was interfering with my life. She had an amazing technique that produced results much quicker than I anticipated. I have been working with Barb once a week and now feel better than ever. Thanks Barb!

Barb not only helped me target various strength training goals, but also gave me the motivation to compete in a 1/2 marathon. I just finished my first of many. Thanks Barb!
