Learn from those
who have done a lot of swimming

In the autumn of 2013 the creators of
International Running School I LOVE RUNNING launched new amazing
project – I LOVE SWIMMING.

In the autumn of 2016 we have opened International Swimming School
I LOVE SWIMMING here in Dubai. Do you want to learn
how to swim or improve your technique
and performance? Cool! Come and join us!

  • 4 weeks of intensive
    swimming trainings

  • 12 training sessions
    with professional coach + final heat

  • like-minded people

  • medical support

  • team support

Goals and timeframes

  • We offer you to reach the goal «Swim your best distance»

    Research studies have shown that people who set the clear objective achieve it as of 80% more often than those who do not state their goals clearly.

    You can go to the swimming pool for years
    (same as learing a foreign language) and, thus,
    don't be able to swim. At the same time it is possible
    to achieve outstanding results in a very short time!

  • We set the
    clear timeframe –
    4 weeks

    A month is a unique period – on the one hand, this is a sufficient time to make a great leap in the swimming, to see a significant shift.

    On the other hand – it is a period that is easy to keep in mind – it sounds not like "I will learn hom to swim someday", not like "in 2018", but already in 4 weeks!

    A month of intense and goal focused trainings is often more effective than lasting but infrequent sessions.

I LOVE SWIMMING – is the opportunity to set and reach the exact goal!

Levels and groups

For the most effective trainings we are forming the small groups which are up to 8 people.
This size of a group allows the coach to pay attention to each student while students training more effectively when not alone.

level #1

Beginners who are just starting
to learn the swimming technique.

Training sessions are held in the swimming pools: Al Nasr Swimming Club (Oud Metha Metro Station) and Mashael Building (Barsha Heights)

Trainings in these groups are more focused on the gliding, body position in water, feeling of water, balance and breathing. These are the basics on which to build the swimming technique. This is the amount of knowledge and experience that professional swimmers usually get in the childhood. However for us, amateurs, there is a need of some practice time in the adulthood :)

Бассейн Университета Путей Сообщения, ст. м. "Горьковская" – Кронверкский пр. 9 Б

Вторник – 21:30, четврег – 21:30, суббота – 9:30. 

Понедельник – 7:00, среда – 7:00, суббота 8:45. 

level #2

For those who are already swimming
but not very fast and not for very long.

Training sessions are held in the swimming pools: Al Nasr Swimming Club (Oud Metha Metro Station) and Mashael Building (Barsha Heights)

The main focus in these groups is on improving the swimming technique! Investing time and efforts in an efficient swimming technique is the best choice at this stage. In addition, the volume of trainings starts to increase compared to the Level #1.




level #3

Swimmers who has already passed Level #2
but want to continue to improve speed and technique.

Training sessions are held in the swimming pools: Hamdan Sports Complex (opp. Global Village, Emirates Rd)

Want to train like Michael Phelps? Want to finish in the first group of the triathlon race? You've come to the right place. Level #3 - is the trainings with clear tasks, modes, intervals and other interesting things :) This level is suitable for those who swims long distances confidently and faster than 2min/100m.

Training plan is structured in such a way that each and every session is important.
At every session you will be working on a few elements; the transition to mastering the next element takes place only after thoroughly study of the previous one. Gathering all the elements together you get a beautiful and effective swimming with the front crawl! Consistency is very important in the training process so it is better not to miss any session :)

I LOVE SWIMMING is an opportunity to expand your social circle, meet new amazing people with similar views and interests.

  • Neil CABRAL
    Level #1

    Team ILS has simplified freestyle into a few easy steps that can be mastered by anyone. Never thought that minor corrections in form and position can make such a huge difference to my swim. Coach Dmitriy Firsov does a great job of reinforcing basics and correcting old habits! I Love Swimming Dubai follows a goal based training for each level which is an excellent approach for focus and motivation. If you would like to learn from a team of committed professionals, this is the right place!

  • Kristina PAPALIYEVA
    Level #1

    1 month ago I was scared to put my face under the water, never owned goggles neither swimming cap. I managed to swim 500m using the best techniques and tips taught by fantastic coach Dmitriy from I LOVE SWIMMING Dubai! Thank you coach and team for organizing such a fantastic final swim, I am absolutely impressed! I felt like I participated in Rio 2016 Olympics but not like it was my first swimming exam! I could hear encouraging words non-stop around me while swimming, support team was everywhere in the pool to push us, posters, numbers, medals, certificates, ceremony... it feels great!!! I am super excited and now ready not to climb mountains but to move them too.

  • Sabrina UZCATEGUI
    Level #2

    The trainings with I Love Swimming Dubai were amazing! Dima, the coach, is excellent, he pays so much attention to very small details that make a huge difference to your swimming with the proper technique. In one month I could clearly see the improvement of my swim. It was the first program with ILS but it was not the last, I'm definitely coming back!
