"I wanted to say thank you for providing a superb course. I've really enjoyed the six weeks and have made such an improvement - far beyond what I thought I could manage. I started off being nervous of putting my face in the water as I could not breathe properly swimming and had to stop before I completed a length. My children were worried that I would finish last at a short triathlon at Easter as my swimming was so bad! PJ has been really helpful and provided some great tips for improving and I could feel an improvement each week. I am now really enjoying swimming so much that I've joined the local gym so I can swim more often. My sons have also commented on how good I've got!!

"Having not had any swimming lessons since primary school and limited to swimming no more than a couple of lengths before being completely out of breath my aspirations to enter a triathlon seemed an impossible goal. My running and cycle fitness were pretty good, I regularly went to the gym and enjoyed rock climbing and hiking, but I couldn’t understand why I was so exhausted after swimming such a short distance. When I saw that Tri Swim Coaching were running a 6 week beginners course in Abingdon I signed up and I can’t believe the difference it has made. Ali took everything right back to the basics from getting the body position correct in the water to the importance of breathing out as I swim. At the end of the first lesson I had completed 25m freestyle without using a nose clip for the first time."
