FitandAbel RealSwim Centre

RealSwim Centre

Welcome to the RealSwim Centre (RSC), our unique HQ and swimming hub based in Kaiapoi. This purpose built, state of the art pool complex is the best place for you to learn to swim and develop your swimming with our experienced, expert coaches.

Our private indoor 12m heated pool is equipped with a flume and provides a stress-free and exclusive environment for you to focus on your swimming without risk or distraction. We have a broad experience base in not only swim coaching, but also health and safety risk management.

We look forward to providing you an environment that enables you to have a clean, safe and comfortable swim.

At the ripe old age of 62, I have finally found the perfect swim teacher! Dan has been patient and understanding every single step of the journey, knowing when to push me beyond my comfort zone and when to let me proceed at my pace. I come away from every lesson absolutely delighted at my progress and I can honestly say I am enjoying every step. I highly recommend Dan and in fact have already convinced some other non  swimmers to take the plunge with Fit & Abel” – Mark Roughan, July 2021
