Having taken up Triathlon and worked on the basics of my swim technique, I was struggling to improve my speed and always felt exhausted getting out of the pool. Fortunately I found Ruth and really can’t thank her enough for the help she gave me.
Ruth was so friendly and accommodating, fitting training sessions around a family holiday is never easy but Ruth made it a breeze, working to the times that worked best for us. She took the time to get to know what it was that I wanted to achieve and took me through drills to improve my position in the water, stroke efficiency and speed as well as helping me to become comfortable with open water swimming, sighting and ensuring I’m able to deal with the challenges that brings.
Overall, in just a few weeks Ruth helped me take minutes off my 1,500m time, reduced my stroke rate by over 30% and to become confident in swimming in open water. Most importantly though her friendly nature and supportive coaching style made it a real pleasure. I’ll be looking forward to working with Ruth again in 2015
