Open Water and Pool Swimming

I am so excited to be able to offer Open Water Swim coaching at the wonderful Pool Bridge Farm. The lake is a tranquil haven for swimmers with great facilities available for you to use before and after your coaching session. (including a Cafe and a Sauna!)

I have created tailored coaching sessions and packages for all abilities. If you are new to Open Water Swimming and want to build up your confidence then check out my introduction to Open Water Swimming session.  Or if you are more experienced already and want to progress your skills ready for a triathlon, then take a look at the Swimming Skills course or a 1:1 could be great for you.

I also offer pool based swim sessions which are perfect for learning and building on front crawl technique. Either book a 1:1 session with me or join our friendly, inclusive group, ‘CGPC Swimmers’, on a Thursday evening to master your front crawl technique and build endurance. A session perfect for mixed abilities. What are you waiting for?!
