    The Bewersdorf Family Owner

    Gina, a radiologist, and Ryan, a lawyer, are former Goldfish parents and current owners of two Goldfish locations. Like most Goldfish stories this one begins in Michigan, where the Bewersdorfs currently reside, in 2009 when Gina signed their son up for swim lessons. Prior to attending Goldfish lessons, he did not want to learn how to swim and refused to participate in any of the community swim classes Gina took him to. However, when they went to Goldfish Farmington (which had just opened), he took the plunge and started splashing his way to the swimmer he is today. Their son made quick progress in the pool due to the fun atmosphere at Goldfish and the one-on-one attention he received from his instructors. Their daughter began swimming at 6 months and is now a state competitor. Seeing this transformation in her own kids Gina was inspired to learn to swim. After months of training, she was comfortable enough in the water to finish the Ironman triathlon (comprised of a 2.4 mile open water swim, 112 mile bike and full marathon) multiple times, one of the most iconic long course triathlons in the world. They just couldn’t stop there, so Gina and Ryan decided to open Goldfish Swim School - Reston in November of 2014 and Goldfish Swim School - Falls Church in September 2017. Coming soon is Goldfish Swim School - Alexandria!
