Freds Swim Academy

Willkommen bei FREDS SWIM ACADEMY!  | Swimtrainer  Lots of fun, safely! Philosophy

Our company with HQ in Augsburg is represented in over 50 countries worldwide. Our global team is young and dynamic. Based on the longstanding experience in our own swimming school we developed the 3-stage learn-to-swim system SWIMTRAINER "Classic" that allows children to acquire a perfect swimming style.
In accordance with our company motto: “Lots of Fun, Safely!" the SWIMTRAINER "Classic" gives children a great deal of swimming fun in every phase of development, as well as the necessary sense of achievement linked with a high level of safety. Thus the basis for a successful swim learning experience is established early on and a life long, positive relationship with water is created.
The especially designed swimming aid products in the SWIMTRAINER "Classic" series are used according to the age and learning progress of the child (red, orange and yellow). From as early as 3months of babies can use the SWIMTRAINER "Classic"  whichenables targeted early learning. The resulting technical training leads to the perfect swimming style.
The SWIMTRAINER "Classic" aids comply with the European, US-American, Australian and Russian safety standards, are TÜV&GS and ASTM-F963 tested and are free of phthalates.
To match our 3-stage learn-to-swim system we offer functional swimming clothing such as overalls, baseball caps and aqua shoes. Our new beach bags, beach towels, sun protection clothing at UV Standard 801 and many other great products are brand new in our product range. Of course we place a great deal of importance on using the best quality for our products.

Fred Warmuth was a young, certified P.E. teacher, specialized in swimming, tennis and ski. He was keenly aware that any swim learning tools should keep the child in the perfect swimming position. However, none of the available flotation devices available at the time achieved that goal. So one day he decided to develop the ULTIMATE tool himself.

The perfect swim-learning tool had to offer maximum safety to even the most fearful children while allowing enough freedom of movement to their arms to allow them to learn the technically correct way of swimming from the start.
It took a couple of years of tinkering but the SWIMTRAINER "Classic"" was born.

The development of the SWIMTRAINER "Classic" in three different sizes – to conform to age and learning process of the child – fulfilled the certified P.E. teacher Fred's goal and mission: "Fun in the Water, Safely".

The patented SWIMTRAINER "Classic" offers babies and children the following:

  • ◦the best possible swimming position and support in the water
  • specialised, early support of the natural swim reflex in infancy.
  • independent movement in the water
  • sufficient freedom of movements in the arms
  • learning of the correct swimming technique thanks to the three step learning system
  • fast and easy to attach
  • TÜV & GS tested, approved by the strictest German safety regulator, phthalate free.

    As you can see in childhood photos I, his daughter Michaela, learned to swim with traditional inflatable wings and rings.
    Swim lessons were very tedious and it took a long time because the wings inhibited arm movements and the ring did not provide the perfect position or stability and balance in the water.

    Today, as the owner of FREDS SWIM ACADEMY GmbH I am very happy and proud to be able to direct this successful family owned business, together with my husband Jürgen, our 3 children and a dynamic team of swim teachers and instructors and importers in the whole world.

    It is wonderful to see that Fred's invention is spreading globally and helping countless children on a daily basis to enjoy the water in safety! Just like our motto: Fun in the Water, Safely!

    We wish all children and parents more fun and joy with our quality, lovingly designed products from the House of "FREDS". Furthermore, we are very grateful for all the beautiful photos and thank you messages happy children and parents are sharing with us.

    Warm regards,

    Michaela Warmuth-Rüd
