"Swim Smooth Suffolk has been a fantastic way to improve my swimming both in the pool and open water. A great mixture of drills and sets and with every session being different it keeps it challenging and exciting!
Everyone in the squad is so friendly and encouraging - there is real team spirit. First class teaching and the perfect start to any keen swimmer's weekend!"

"I did the Blenheim triathlon in 2015 and clocked 14:57 for the open water 750m swim. In 2017 I completed the same swim in 12:07!

Then I returned for the Great East Swim 2 miles. Last year's time was 1 hour 4 mins - but this year I was shocked go NINE minutes quicker, 55:02.

The only chance I get to swim is in your sessions once a week, occasionally twice a week. So I'm delighted to make these tremendous gains. And I only started swimming in your sessions just over a year ago!

Clearly you know what you are talking about!

"I LOVE the Saturday morning Swim Smooth Suffolk squad. It is really helping me to improve my fitness, learn open water skills for my upcoming Great East Swim and work on my freestyle technique. Having had a video analysis session with Seamus this has further given me the knowledge of specifically what I need to do to improve my stroke."

I did the 5k at Swimathon 2019 - a distance that would have been inconceivable 2 years ago. For that I swam almost exactly 1hr 40min which I think is pretty respectable and particularly pleasing from a pacing standpoint, as I was being fairly conservative with a 2:00/100m pace.

For my (first) Ironman swim time, it ended up being 1hr 05min which is much faster than I thought I was capable of! At a stretch I thought 1:10 but was aiming for 1:15. 

I completed the full distance in 10hrs 57mins, which I was ecstatic with - felt like all the training was justified.

So I'm loving my swimming now and I don't think I could have put those race results in without your coaching, so thanks very much.
