Welcome from Head Coach!
My name is Naim Ahmad and I am Founder of Swim Smart Berkshire! I am a qualified Level 2 Swim Teacher, and also hold a BSc in Sports Science and Coaching Studies.
I have been coaching a range of sports now for a decade which have included football, tennis, multi-skills, cricket, athletics, dodgeball and of course, swimming, in which I have achieved Coaching Awards. My highest coaching qualifications are my Level 2 Certificate in Teaching Aquatics and Level 3 in Football Coaching.
My inspiration for swimming began since the 2012 Olympics. Over the past 4 years, I have been teaching swimming for both adults and children of various age and ability levels.
During my final year at university, my passion for swimming led me to base my dissertation project on this very sport.
It was called the 'Effect of Hatha Yoga on Shoulder Flexibility of Competitive Swimmers.' I worked with Regional/National Level Swimmers from Windsor Swimming Club and led the Yoga exercises over a 6 week period; I found improvements in shoulder flexibility using goniometer tests and a back scratch test!
My passion in swimming draws me to want to teach this very important life skill with my team of dedicated staff & coaches to help as many people as possible, of different ages and genders, to become confident swimmers!
