 “I could not have achieved my goal of completing an English Channel swim in August 2014 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 Fullerton Solo Channel swim 2014

September 2012 “We made it! 16hrs 14mins we were incredibly lucky with the weather, we had near perfect conditions. Thank you for all your help…. Mike helped us complete our qualifying swim in Dover Harbour, as well as giving us a bit of coaching in Brockwell Lido. We’d highly recommend Mike for anyone in the South East that’s interested in building up open water experience.”
