Your coach – Sarah Hill
Sarah is a Level 2 Total Immersion coach and a level 2 swimming teacher who is passionate about making the pleasure and benefits of Total Immersion swimming available to all regardless of age, background, aspiration or fitness levels.
Until 2008, Sarah was a breaststroke swimmer; like many she had struggled for years to overcome her inability to swim front crawl for any distance without becoming exhausted. Fuelled by the frustration this caused, she discovered Total Immersion and learned to swim again with the then UK Head TI coach, the late Ian Smith, an experience that changed her whole understanding of swimming as well as transforming her stroke.
Since then, Sarah has worked to develop her own swimming whilst also training as a swimming teacher and in 2016, she successfully studied under TI Master coach Tracey Baumann and qualified as a TI coach.
Sarah has a great love for open water swimming; she is a long-distance specialist with numerous long lake swims under her belt including all 10.5 miles of Lake Windermere. She is keen to encourage more people into the open water and runs regular coaching sessions at her local lake for recreational swimmers and triathletes alike. Sarah’s commitment to making swimming enjoyable and accessible to all helped her gain recognition as the I Will If You Will Bury Sporting Female Of The Year for 2015.
Sarah welcomes clients from all walks of life across a broad range of ability and age including children and adults learning to swim, triathletes, open water swimmers, recreational and phobic swimmers. She also coaches backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke as well as open water and endurance swimming.
