Coach Janis is great!! She is very clear in her instructions and it is very clear that she knows a lot!! Also, she is very organized and has a progressive plan.
I have played other sports but I do not have experience swimming and I am looking forward to continue learning with her

(no details provided)

Janis is the real deal coach when it comes to military prep swimming. I have transformed from a non-swimmer to a swimmer that can do the sidestroke, combat sidestroke, freestyle, and breaststroke.

My daughter loved her. She helped her a great deal in just the one session. We intend to do more.

Coach Janis was incredibly helpful. With her instruction And techniques I was able to significantly improve the swim strokes I was working on. I am very happy to have worked with her and will book more coaching sessions.

I had a great experience with coach Janis. She was very informative and made learning the combat side stroke possible. Highly recommend. No matter if I was in San Diego for a one week or or month as soon as I had free time I would reach out to coach Janis for a lesson. Every lesson was crucial for me to develop as a swimmer. I’m not a swimming athlete and I was able to drop my time over 2 minutes while working with coach Janis. After my last session with her I swam a 8:30. Her workouts and guidance helped me pursue contracts in the navy and open up great opportunities. I can’t thank her enough. You can’t just show up. You need to show up prepared and ready to work. Make the most out of your time with her.

Janis was awesome! Thoughtful, knowledgeable and kind. Planning on additional session.

Mrs. Bloomquist is amazing. After one session I felt so much better as a swimmer. She made me feel very comfortable and ready to learn. I plan to have many more sessions.

With the help and guidance of Coach Janis, I already feel a significant improvement to my technique and overall fitness. She is a great coach!

I'm an amateur triathlete that's done a few swim sessions with Coach Janis and plan to keep coming. I highly recommend her for the following reasons:
1. Her knowledge of and experience with swimming - She's been swimming and coaching for decades and really knows her stuff, both the technical and interpersonal. She's been great at observing what I'm doing wrong (and right) and communicating it in a way I understand and remember. I've left every session with a few key things to work on and it's really improved my swimming.
2. Her coaching style - She's mastered the blend of "coach" and "friend" - I feel motivated to listen and respond to what she's saying but also have fun during swim sessions and know she cares about me as a person.
3. Her pool - Coronado is beautiful! It's like a mini vacation.

Was amazing! Patient and understanding. Very helpful!

Very thorough session! Received great plan for future training. I look forward to scheduling future sessions.

Coach Janis is a highly competent and gifted swim coach. She created a wonderful training environment by providing me with positive and constructive feedback while carefully analyzing stroke. As an educator, I appreciated how Janis understood my needs and provided me with a very comprehensible game plan to reach my goals.

Coach Janis is fantastic! She is clearly an experienced athlete. She was quick to mention things that I was strong on, but also to point out what I could be cleaning up in my combat side stroke. Even after one session I have a greater sense of what I need to work on and what I'm doing right. If you need help with your swimming, I don't think that you can do any better than Coach Janis!

Coach Janis is amazing. She communicates very effectively with my young swimmer and was able to make a huge difference in just one session.

It has been nearly a week since my first session with Janice. I am beginner at the freestyle stroke, with goals of completing a 1.2-mile open water swim. Janice reviewed my current form and provided basic drills on how to improve my technique. In the two workouts completed since the lesson, I have noticed an improvement in my swimming.

I am looking forward to future lessons with coach Janice.
Highly recommended!

Coach Janis is a fantastic mentor. I had never had any sort of swim lessons before however, I had moderate comfort in the water. Coach Janis has completely revolutionized my Combat Side Stroke to a level that would have taken me years on my own. She also gives you the tools to properly critique yourself for when you train on your own. She is just as motivated as you are and really cares about meeting the necessities of the individual athlete. Always a valuable and productive time with each lesson.

After my first session my techique and breathing improved more than I could have imagine. I had one session before my first international triathlon (1000m swim) and I was able to freestyle the whole racw at a strong pace. Prior to this Tri, my prior tri's I would have to change my stroke from freestyle to backstroke bc I had improper breathing and swim techique. I was able to finish third in my age group and that wouldn't have happened without Janis' training. Thank you!

Coach Janis has been extremely accommodating when it came to scheduling our sessions. During the sessions she found innovative ways to relate the techniques to me. The impact of her coaching was immediate and drastic. Worth every penny. My only regret is I didn't do this sooner.

Coach Janis was extremely helpful and very patient. I was a complete swimming novice and after just one session and following the plan she wrote for me, I'm feeling much more comfortable in the water.

Zero Stars.
Janis is extremely condescending. I'm currently in the process of reporting her to the BBB & others for cheating me out of a written workout that I paid for.

In my Granddaughter first session, Coach Janis did a great job in correcting several movements in her strokes. Coach Janis ability to communicate & patience during the sessions was outstanding. We can't wait for the next sessions

Coach Janis is awesome! I am a newbie swimmer-can "swim" but never had any formal training. I am pursuing my first triathlon and Coach Janis has been working with me to develop my freestyle technique for long distance (1.2 miles) Janis is patient, super nice and extremely knowledgable. Janis responds right away to email/text and is punctual-professional, experienced and a great Coach. Go with Coach Janis you will not be disappointed!

Coach Janis was a fantastic coach. Did a great job of pushing my limits while giving me the confidence to reach my current and future goals. Blew expectations out of the water. Would recommend her to anyone looking to improve their swimming.

Coach Janis was very helpful and very encouraging. I highly recommend her.

Coach Janis was an all-star before our first lesson! Worked tirelessly with me to find a time and opening to schedule our first lesson. Our first lesson did not disappoint! A motivating and experienced Coach; easy to work with and easy to grasp the concepts she explains. Was quick to analyze my current capabilities and integrate them with new drills to improve my performance. Brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and I have seen considerable advancement in my stroke and effort after just one lesson. Looking forward to continuing to work with Coach Janis and improving my technique and performance. Most highly recommended!

Such an amazing coach!!! Doesn't talk down to you, motivates gives you work out plan to work on upon you next meeting. I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn to swim

I saw improvement after only one lesson with Janis. She is a very knowledgeable and is great at describing technique suggestions in a way a student can easily understand and begin to implement immediately. Even after only one session I feel much more comfortable with my swim technique.

I just got my contract for BUD/S today. Thank you for all your hard work helping me to drop my swim time significantly to reach this goal and for believing in me. Jeff L. 2/18/2014
Thank you for helping me qualify for the Navy EOD program with a solid performance for my 500 Combat Side Stroke. Elijah 11/2013
Best swim coach ever". Thank you for helping me improve my previous 'best' 500 time to a new record time under 7:30. Kenny Navy Swimmer 12/2013
I just dropped another :33 from my previous personal best time for the 500 Combat Side Stroke PST swim; from 9:17 to 8:45 yesterday. I couldn't have done it without you!
