General Blenheim Sprint Tri race tips
"The Pre-Blenheim Course was invaluable. I had no idea how to swim in a straight line, and every time I tried on my own previously I ended up in the bank! Annie helped me control my breathing and get into a good rhythm so I could put my good pool training to good use in the lake. It was useful building my confidence swimming close to other people, it really helped calm my nerves. The race tips came in really handy too. I will definitely do it again next year!"
Private Group & 1:1 Coaching Also Available
1:1 or private group sessions can be a great way to improve your speed in a short space of time. Often your swim fitness is there but it's not translating into fast Open Water swim times. This can be for a number of reasons; poor technique, slow arm turnover, over kicking, not sighting frequently enough and bad pacing. Annie will identify what's holding you back and fix it for good. Over the years she's helped hundreds of swimmers improve their times and reach PBs. Suitable for juniors and adults.
Please note, during peak season (April, May & June) you will need to book several weeks in advance. Click below to contact Annie about private open water coaching sessions.
