Swim services

I provide 1-2-1 and group swim coaching working with first time open water swimmers to triathlon improvers. I’m hands on and will be in the water alongside you to build confidence and give immediate feedback. What allows me to make such progress in the water is the fact that its all captured on video – you have no idea what you are doing when you swim so with the video analysis any improvements can be easily implemented.

So what can you expect from my sessions?

  • Each session is 50 minutes in length
  • Catch up before entering the water
  • Before each session we will carry out a warm up and look at your shoulder mobility – key for swimming.
  • Safe entry into the water
  • Video analysis of the starting position – so important to understand your current stroke and any changes we need to make
  • Coached drills following the initial video analysis
  • Coached session
  • 2nd video analysis following the coached session – this shows the progress we’ve made during the sessions

I arrived at my first open water swim ever and immediately decided I might not even go into the lake! By the end of the hour I had gained enough confidence and technique coaching to swim front crawl with face in the water ! 

My first event is in 3 weeks but Grant didn’t judge me for being under prepared !! Just worked with what we had. Thanks so much feeling much more confident and look forward to more sessions soon.

A fabulous training session in an amazing location  I had my first training session with Grant last night and a total pro -I can’t recommend him more highly. On a summer break from the pool i wanted to try out some open water training – couldn’t have been a better experience! I was quite nervous on seeing the vast lake and Grant immediately put me at ease. His calming nature and welcome meant that I was ready to go for it in minutes and was focussed straight away on his training. In one hour I learnt new techniques, improved my stroke and also had great fun being in the lake ! Thanks so much Grant , can’t wait for another session!

Had a very useful lesson with Grant to improve my open water swimming technique. Came away with 3 key points to work on and the videos Grant took were very helpful! Highly recommended.

I cannot recommend Grant more highly! I booked a series of sessions with grant at the West Country water park and from the first moment in the water grant put me at ease and made me feel very comfortable. In just 4 sessions my confidence has increased immeasurably. Grants insight has been great and I really feel that my technique has improved. I will certainly be booking more sessions in the future.
