Florida Lifeguard Training (Orlando based)
Serving state-wide groups seeking Red Cross lifeguard certification, since 1991.
I have been a lifeguard for 5 years!
I serve the Orlando/Tampa communities of Kissimmee, Orlando proper, Clermont, St.cloud, among others!
I began life-guarding when I was just 15 years old. Since then, I have worked for my community, college and even Aquatica as a full time lifeguard for almost 5 years. Now, I am a middle school teacher with a family and a young child.
Home base areas I serve: Clermont, Wintergarden, Dr. Phillips, Windermere and all of greater Orlando.
I have been a lifeguard since I was 15 years of age. I have always lifeguarded, taught swim lessons, CPR/AED and first aid. In addition to be an American Red Cross Lifeguard Instructor Trainer, I am also a NASCO instructor trainer and serve on the faculty each year at their national aquatic school. I am a middle school teacher and was teacher of the year last year and one of the top ten teachers in my district. I swim open water events with my longest swim being 12.5 miles. (you go girl!)
I have been a lifeguard for 7 years, working for orange county parks and recreation at kelly park (rock springs), Discovery Cove Orlando, and now currently working for RDV sportsplex in Maitland. I have always had a strong passion for lifeguarding and helping and serving others. I am very excited for this adventure with happy swimmers and can’t wait to experience the different events. A little fun fact about myself is that I absolutely love the outdoors. Most days you can find me either hunting, fishing, or on any body of water possible!
I serve the Orlando/Tampa communities of Apopka, Altamonte, Orlando & Tampa proper, among others.
Hi my name is Nick and I am a Florida native with a great Jamaican heritage. The reason that I first got into lifeguarding was because I got a summer job at a sleep away summer camp. I remember being pretty nervous my first couple times guarding. However, from that experience my confidence grew and after 4 years of that, I have learned so much about myself and my leadership ability. I acquired my lifeguard trainer certification and have put it to good use since.
The reason I love event lifeguarding is because on top of keeping everyone safe, I love being a part of the excitement going on around me.
I have been a lifeguard for both Ellis and Associates and The American Red Cross. I take pride on creating a fun and enjoyable aquatic experience for others while promoting safety according to the most current standards. I have experience in several setting and hope to further my skills and gain new experiences!
General areas I serve: Kissimmee, Orlando, Lakeland, Jacksonville, Winter Haven, Tampa
7 years experience lifeguarding. Serving areas in the Land o Lakes, Wesley Chapel, and the Tampa Bay Area
HI!!!! My name in Rakeisha. I am a Canadian student-athlete currently finishing my degree in Biology on the medical track and playing soccer at Saint Leo University. I have been swimming since I was eight and have loved the water ever since. I have been a certified lifeguard for seven years now and have done so for camp, family outings, Saint Leo University’s pool, and at my own house. Though I am not a certified swim instructor I have taught a few kids in my community, so proper certification is something I will pursue. I understand how fun swimming can be but I also understand its dangers so I make it my business to ensure a safe environment for those who want to enjoy the water!

Yumi and Jere were wonderful lifeguards when they guarded our end of year pool party on Wednesday June 11 from 11-2. They were in touch with me, were on time and prepared, and were very responsible and knowledgeable. I was so happy to be able to put two adults in charge of our fourth grade class party.
Based on my experience with Yumi Temple and her cohort Jere, I would highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. So happy we used your business.
Hi Jenn.. wow today was really scary. I had to use my first aid skills on my mom! We work at the same preschool & she had an allergic reaction & went into shock! I did everything I remembered until the paramedics came.. I really can’t thank you enough for teaching me everything I needed to know!
Everything about my experience with Happy Swimmers has been amazing! From the scheduling to the fantastic teacher they sent for my 5 and 6 year old. The instructor, Emma, had to contend with 2 very different personalities along with 2 different levels of swimming experience. She was more than equipped to deal with that and gave each child unparalleled support, encouragement and instruction. I highly recommend this service to all parents that want to give their child a great experience in being water safe!
We have three kids ages 7, 4, and 2 & 1/2. This was our second year having Happy Swimmers, with instructor Trisha Commons, come teach our kids (the two oldest) to swim. I tried another company the year before I tried Happy Swimmers and although the kids learned swim safety, they were bored and did not learn how to enjoy the pool. Trisha got our son, who did not really like swimming, having fun and by the end of last year could swim the entire length of the pool on his own.
Trisha is great with the kids and is flexible in her teaching style to work with different personalities. She is able to get the kids confident in their abilities and teaches them how to swim, but also teaches them how to have fun! I will definitely be asking Happy Swimmers and Trisha to teach the kids again next year.
I have a toddler and a pool and wanted to make sure my son learned water safety. After taking some group classes last summer, I knew I wanted more one-on-one attention at our home. This summer I reviewed several in-home companies and was impressed with Happy Swimmers approach of water safety.
Trish worked with my stubborn 2-yr old 2-3 times a week. Within the first lesson he knew how to climb out of the pool and to ask permission before getting in. Although our goal was to get him water comfortable more than “swimming”, he indeed learned to swim within a few weeks. We extended our lessons and really appreciated Trish’s approach. We will sign up again next summer. Many of our friends with children happened to be present on several lessons and I expect they will also sign up next summer as well.
Hired a happy swimmers for private life guard for a party for over 200 people at my house. The lifeguard was great. She called to confirm before, came on time, and stayed later then we originally signed up because the party went over. She also showed up on time despite there being a black out that because of storms the day before. I highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
