I’m not usually quick to recommend people, but on this occasion I can happily do so – I thoroughly recommend Mike – he’s very good. Only a couple of lessons with him made a huge difference to my front crawl. I couldn’t do half a length of the Lido before my first lesson. Four weeks later (after 3 lido lessons and 1 open water session) I managed the 1500m in open water in the London triathlon. This was all down to Mike sorting out my breathing (in a very short space of time). Not only is Mike a really nice bloke and a good teacher his rates are affordable too.” Nigel H 

“I completed my first Olympic Tri today. I found the 3 sessions so helpful….such a confidence booster. I would recommend your coaching to anyone.” Hannah B 

“Thanks Mike for the lesson yesterday. Great to have someone tell me where I am going right and where I am going wrong. Good to have something new to practice in the pool. Highly recommended” Tim Sutton Sept

“I’ve dramatically improved my front crawl through working on my technique and fitness with Mike. I am now 15 seconds faster over 100m and swimming feels smooth, fluid and enjoyable. Mike and Sarah really care and it has been fun as well as hard work.” Lucy July 2019

“I could not have achieved my goal of completing and English Channel Swim without the dedicated coaching provided by Mike at Streamline Swims. He corrected my technique, improved my fitness and built my confidence as a marathon swimmer through pool sessions, cross training and accompanying me on progressively longer open water swims. His commitment to my challenge was amazing, often going beyond what I would have expected. His support on the pilot boat will never be forgotten. Mike’s passion for swimming and the overall well being of the athlete is what makes his approach special. Thank you Mike !!!” Simon October 2014
