Guest Reviews

I had never been filmed swimming before, well except by a friend so to have it done professionally and see myself at different angles really made it clear to me what I was doing wrong.  I even now know what I need to do to correct it thanks to the coaches.  Having the week in the water with the coaches really helped me to see my faults, and gave me the time and with the on hand expertise I have really started to improve my stroke.  I feel I learnt so much to improve my technique and having been home a week now am starting to see my times getting faster and am feeling stronger in the water and can feel when I do it wrong.  A breakthrough! Many Thanks.More Reviews Here…
