Eric Blakie – North East Triathlete

Name –Eric Blakie aged 54 member of Ryton Triathlon club in NE England.I’ve been doing tri’s for about 6 years.Competative at top level in my age group from Sprint to Ironman.

Facilities –very clean,modern and professional.

The session—excellent ! It take s a few minutes to get used to the endless pool but after that my coach Jack was very easy to understand and very calm throughout.

My problem was that after 6 years of swimming I had ceased to improve and I know from previous underwater footage that what I think I’m doing and what I’m actually doing are two entirely different things.The session enabled me to visualise that much more clearly and then see the difference that the Coach’s instructions made–immediately.I took home the DVD with commentary,played it again that evening and was in the pool 7.00am next morning.I was able to focus on my problem areas and noticed an immediate improvement in ease of swimming.

I would recommend the facility to any body who seriously wants to improve –and go for the two hours –its not all swimming and passes very quickly!
