Swim Instructors

MAC Premier Fitness is home to some of the most talented and experienced Certified Aquatic Instructors and Swim Lesson Instructors in the industry! 

Our Certified Aquatic Instructors provide a supportive, safe environment while providing a challenging workout for all levels of fitness in the water. Obtain greater mobility, reduced pain and fatigue, and increase muscle strength in the pool. Work at your own ability level during a variety of water exercise classes with the encouragement from friendly members! 

Our Certified Swim Lesson Instructors provide a supportive, safe, and intimate one on one approach to learning to swim. With safety being our number one concern, this allows our swimmers to gain confidence in the water while learning to swim or, for more experienced swimmers, learning higher levels of swimming. Our teachers tailor lessons specifically to your child’s needs to ensure your child can continue to excel in the water!

Swim Lesson Instructor

Nancy Moore

I spent 40+ years in the insurance industry, primarily in customer service and claim resolution roles. I have been married to Jeff for 47 years, have 3 children, 2 marvelous daughters-in-law and 4 grandchildren in the Chicago area.  Following retirement in 2016, I have spent time quilting, reading and traveling, mainly to Chicago but also to Florida for extended stays in the winter. As a member at MAC I was aware of the swimming instruction program and realized I might be in position to help since I worked as a lifeguard and water safety instructor during my high school and college days.  I love helping young ones become comfortable and competent in the water with the primary goals of water safety and ongoing improvement of their skills.

Kirstin Symmes

Hello, my name is Kirstin but I go by Ms. Kay to all my students! I am a mother to 3 wonderful children, and one of them is special needs/medically complex. Due to having a child with special needs/medically complex I have a ton of experience with neurotypical and non-neurotypical children and adults! 

I've been teaching lessons for about a year and truly love it and have a passion for teaching safety in the water! I originally worked in the medical field as an RMA for 10yrs! Helping others has always been in my heart! 

I look forward to helping you and your family learn water safety through lessons and can't wait to build the relationship with your family as we navigate lessons together!
