LEARN
Swim Theory is the most advanced aquatic learning facility in the Saint Louis Metro Area. We offer small group classes, private lessons, and semi-private lessons. ALL AGES AND LEVELS ARE WELCOME (yes, that means adults). We teach proper swim technique, first building on freestyle and backstroke - the essential elements of water safety for kids and adults alike. For those students looking to learn proper 4 stroke technique, Swim Theory is the best investment of your time and money. Everything we do is backed by a satisfaction guarantee.

TRAIN
Swim Theory uses a multi camera video system for live feedback and post session analysis to help competitive swimmers and triathletes SEE, FEEL, and UNDERSTAND changes to their stroke(s). Group and private sessions are available for swimmers and triathletes. Our Triathlon prep package is a great way for runners and bikers to become swimmers as well.

LIVE WELL
Swim Theory helps post PT patients, mobility constrained, and weight loss seekers a fun, motivating, and comfortable experience in the water.
