A few comments from our swimmers

Just had my first session at Swimmingly. I highly recommend it, the facilities are lovely, extremely clean and very welcoming. Sarah is a fantastic coach who is very patient, supportive and really good at explaining techniques. I had looked forward to this for weeks and I was not disappointed! I came away feeling inspired, focused and I can’t wait to get in the pool / open water to practice everything I have learned. Thanks again Sarah – Kerrie

I’ve always loved swimming in the pool, mainly doing breast stroke. I have been having lessons from Sarah to improve my front crawl (freestyle). My water confidence has increased massively and I don’t feel as breathless doing front crawl and can swim much further now. After encouragement and support from Sarah, I am now also a confident open water swimmer – Sue

I would like to share my sincere gratitude to both yourself and the Total Immersion swimming system. Last week I completed my goal of swimming open water 400m to complete the first leg of my first triathlon. As you know, 6 months ago I could not swim 25m of the local pool. I started lessons at my local pool, but could not progress towards my goal and I was worried I would have to withdraw from the event. Endless sessions of up and down the pool with a kick board did nothing other than make my legs stronger. About 3 months ago, I found Swimmingly and within one session I had progressed further than the 6 weeks previous. The TI system and your method of teaching, brought a calmness and relaxation to the water that I had never felt before. Under a different coach, fear and dread precluded my visits to the pool.  So I did it, non-swimmer to 400m open water in 6 months. I’m now completely comfortable in the water and looking forward to going on holiday and enjoying the pool, as opposed to making excuses to the kids! – Pete

I swam with the tri club this week and the coach couldn’t believe the improvement in my stroke! – Anne

Oh my goodness! Just been swimming- it was easy, no gasping, puffing and panting for air, just a lovely relaxed swim, loved it. Thanks so much! – Adrian

Less than a year ago I couldn’t swim a length doing front crawl, yesterday I tried TI in open water, swam nearly a mile and loved every minute. I highly recommend Sarah’s training, she offers sound professional advice sprinkled with a personal touch that builds confidence and has developed and changed the way I now swim. – Lisa
