Rhiannon Saunders – Witney & District SC

Hi Kate

Both Rhiannon and I thoroughly enjoyed our sessions and learned a lot. I am hoping to undertake my coaching level 1 this year, so found the whole analysis fascinating.

From a personal point of view, I was quite nervous about doing this as I’ve not swum competitively (I have a synchro swimming background), but wish to improve the efficiency of my stroke to fulfill some personal goals of swimming in some distance open water events this year (10km+). Ari was brilliant! She really put me at ease and was very encouraging. Rhi too found her style engaging and responded really well to Ari’s level of positivity and enthusiasm. I was delighted how she progressed during the session and her confidence grew. We will both carry the points forward to training sessions and look forward to reaping the benefits of the changes to our strokes.

Please feel free to use any comment!

Thanks again
