To create and Develop Swim to Fly ®, Christian has been teaching, observing, analysing all aged students’ behaviour at all different levels of competence, background, and community, for over 15 years. Through this experience he began to understand that how you think and imagine when you swim directly impacts your ability to improve and make progress in swimming ability.

He realized that many coaches are using many different methods spliced together from their own individual experiences, certifications, degrees, and cultures. He also observed that no one had developed a globally recognized step by step basic, step complete, universal and ultra effective method setting out exact instructions for what to do, how to do it, in what order, with full explanations as to how and why each step works and leads to progression to the next step.

Seeing the need, he set out to develop a universal method adaptable and efficient for any kind of student using mental imagery and representations to focus the mind to achieve defined goals and instruction targets.

To swim well, one must:

  • Be able to swim relaxed, safely & independently
  • Be able to swim properly and effectively by feeling every action
  • Be able to swim fast spending a minimum of energy using perfected technique

To achieve this, he created mental and physical instructions for students to feel and imagine that SWIMMING IS LIKE FLYING, recognizing that the movement through water is like flying through the sky. He created imagery and lessons based on this appropriate to a child’s imagination and experience that helps tem relax without effort and stretch into the water as if flying through the air.  Through this he found that the children moved through stages more quickly and with greater confidence than before.

Since the age of 18, Christian has studied and taught in the French education system. He has taught primarily at the primary and secondary school levels, but also at national competitive and handicapped, and several dozen nationalities. In particular he has focused on swimming education, his main interest and passion. He graduated from Sport University [NAME] in 2000, became a Certified State French National Swim teacher in 2003, graduated 1st Rank in his university for his Master’s Degree in Sport Education and Motricity in 2004, and was certified as a top 100 PE teachers in France in 2005.

Building on an outstanding career in the French national education system, as instructor and coach and motivational speaker, and combining his passions for teaching and swimming, he moved to Singapore in 2011 to launch his own swim school for private clients (elitecoach.com.sg).

Throughout his career, he observed that there are many different methods to teach swimming, many different ways to learn, and much discussion and debate between teachers, coaches, parents, from different countries and backgrounds with different intentions and goals. His entire professional career has focused on how to teach swimming effectively and with success. He trained the highest levels of competitive athletes, such as French National Champion in Triathlon. He himself trained to compete in the IRONMAN triathlon competition as well. Through these experiences and recognizing the large gap in professional instruction, he set out to create a simple, effective, formalized approach incorporating psychology, technical, training techniques to teach children of all ages to begin to swim and to progress to swim well.

Since moving to Singapore he has already worked with more than 1,000 clients. He came to understand parents’ concerns with safety, injury, and drowning and further refined his approach to define stage one focusing on safety, He defined “SAFETY” as the core foundation of the system. But his definition of “SAFETY” carries through the beginning, novice, and competent, and advanced stages. It does not stop at emergency events. All parents want to ensure safety at every stage of growing up around pools or in the ocean.

Christian quickly became well known for the quick and stable results he was able to achieve with children’s swimming in less than 3 years. He teaches many children, from many countries, at all different levels, all effectively, as quickly as possible with one common goal: to learn how to swim effectively, as quickly as possible, employing games and relaxing exercises, using methods employing fun and entertainment.

During his free time, he created the instruction system called Swim to Fly. It teaches children from age 2 to swim safely and in a relaxed manner. It has a proven track record of overcoming aqua phobia many times. The method has 3 main steps which incorporate [….] and psychomotor skills in harmony with children’s physical development. Through the instruction, most children can swim at least 15 meters safely, relaxed, in deep water, at the age of 3years old. The method is 100% effective with adults as well.

The first step is called: “Swim to Fly Safe”. The method transforms the child, it changes his mind thoughts, releases fear, allows him to enjoy the water, have fun, and equate movement in water to flying in the sky. A feeling of well-being and harmony takes over in the pool. It stays with the child, like a habit, like learning to ride a bike for the first time. When totally safe and alone for the first time, or realizing they can float and slide on the surface and not drop to the bottom, the transformation is instant and the confidence – in flying, in swimming, in being safe, in the teacher – takes over, and all the small children begin to progress with technique in a truly amazing manner.

Again and again, we see amazement in their eyes, laughter and smiles on their faces, and a sense of wanting to do more and achieve higher levels of skills. Every parent in the world should experience this moment. Every child should have the chance to feel this sensation. This is the goal of Swim to Fly 100% Safe.

Meanwhile, Christian observed that many children, entirely safe and confident in the water, struggled to improve their swimming ability. Most have poorly formed, unstable, and ineffective technique in all of their strokes. They never learned to slide properly through the water. They never learned the essence of what constitutes magical swimming.

Christian Anseaume: “Swimming totally Safe is the ability to stay 100% relaxed in deep water, diving, breathing and controlling effectively any action to move in any direction for a period of time long enough to swim 20 to 50 meters under normal swimming conditions”

Christian Anseaume: “ To be a 100% Effective Swimmer is to have the ability to feel, understand and control any action in the water to relax, and slide in the water with maximum speed and minimum effort using perfected stable technique. To be 100% aware of your movements and be able to adapt and adjust them under any conditions, relaxed and without fear, is swimming like flying. This is the goal of of the Swim to Fly system”.
