How did Aquaskills start?

Adrian-GinjuIn 2004 Adrian Ginju met Lori Pailet and they both became swimming companions. One day they came up with the idea to start a swim school and named it Aquaskills.
Almost immediately the response was viral because the demand was so high and the training so superior there was no comparison.
Aquaskills has been actively conducting classes ever since.

Adrian was born in 1959 in a small village in Sibiu, Romania. When Adrian was 5 years old he joined the village swim team.
He had a dream to teach people how to swim which inspired Aquaskills.
As a child daily rigorous training and devotion made Adrian qualify for the Romanian Olympic Swim Team.
Adrian trained at the 23rd August Olympic Camp in Romania at the same time as other world class athletes.
Adrian’s expertise and legacy is at the foundation of Aquaskills method.

Adrian is in Romania.
