OPEN WATER AND POOL TECHNIQUE
How we do it!
At Swimwerkx you'll find our approach fits you because we remember our first nervous steps into swimming and open water.
You'll get more than the usual one stroke fits all approach, and we can help you understand everything from hand position to breathing to the latest thinking about that elusive catch and pull.
A lesson is as long as we think you're having fun, and we usually film you where allowed and whether you book one or more sessions you'll get a personal email reminding you of what you learnt.
All coaches are fully OW insured and are CRB | DBS checked.
Our guarantee? if you feel that you've learnt nothing or are not more confident getting out of the water than when you got in then there's no charge, or the next one is on us. We like you to leave happy!
