Gym Bunny To Zen In The Slow Lane
“ My breast stroke feels calm, almost a ‘Zen’ like rhythm, that won’t go faster. During each length I tell myself to reduce neck tension and resist the temptation to try harder and swim faster! "

I would like to say a big thank you to you both for teaching me how to ‘swim without stress’ back in March 2014.  

Despite being fit (regular gym exerciser), before the lessons, I used to attack the water and be out of puff after just one length.   My goal was simple; learn how to enjoy swimming with less effort. 

I am so glad I took the plunge to do your swimming course.   Your lessons were relaxed, fun, tailored to my needs and well paced.  

I can now swim 20 x 50 meter lengths in approx 45 mins (breast stroke) comfortably without being out of breath and stopping.   My breast stroke feels calm, almost a ‘Zen’ like rhythm. During each length I tell myself to reduce neck tension and resist the temptation to try harder and go faster! 

My front crawl needs further work; however it is much less strained than it was.   I have a great deal left to learn, and am sure I will be in touch for more lessons on how to improve my front crawl and correct my new ‘bad’ habits.  

I am now a regular swimmer - at least once a week and much more importantly, a happier swimmer in the very slow lane. I strongly recommend Ian & Cheryl’s swimming course!

The video above might be useful for Rachel. Unfortunately, Ian has lost some nice 'before and after' footage of her breaststroke.
