What others are saying
We’ve been really impressed with Swimtherapy and the way it’s helped our daughter iron out bad habits. The various camera angles allow you to see exactly what’s going on with a stroke and the headpiece allows for real time communication and adjustment. Jay is great, very patient and explains the coaching points clearly. He’s really friendly which helps with the coach/swimmer dynamic. We’ve seen improvements across the strokes we’ve focussed on and some big pb’s across the board.
Masters Swimmer Feedback
I’m a masters swimmer and a booked a session with Swim Therapy following a recommendation from a fellow swimmer. I swim for a local swimming club and regularly compete at a local, regional, national and international competitions. Most recently I represented Team GB at the European Masters Championships in Rome 2022.
I have had 3 one hour sessions with Coach Jay over a period of a couple of years. I was nervous for my first session and unsure what to expect. As a swimmer, you very rarely receive one to one coaching and at first this was a bit daunting. However, I really enjoyed the session, Coach Jay is very knowledgeable and put me at ease straight away.
Coach Jay has completely changed my breaststroke for the better! Since working with Swim Therapy I have swam multiple personal best times in the 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke both short course and long course.
I would highly recommend Swim Therapy!! The coaching and the technology are second to none. Being able to watch your swimming and receive instant feedback on how to improve is priceless.
Thank you Coach Jay for all of your help!
Jay is an so supportive in developing Harry’s technique over the years. His knowledge is incredibly and he helps enhance self esteem and self efficacy which we know are crucial to enhancing performance.
Jay is also keen to ensure he supports Harry’s coaching team to maximise Harry’s goals. To be completely honest Harry wouldn’t have got his first regional time without Jay’s support.
Harry was out of action for 12 months with a broken leg (and complications). We had less than 2 months to get him his county times and 4 1/2 hours to get him his regionals times. With Jay’s help and support we managed 4 regional times and he got Pbs in all four events. To say we were delighted was an understatement.
My name is Luan Power I am 13 years old. I love having a session at swim therapy as it great having a 1-1 on a specific stroke and because you are filmed you can see your progression just in 1 session from being filmed at the start and then again at the end . Highly recommend Jay the coach who takes the sessions as he puts you at ease and explains things in a clear manner and helps makes your stroke better and more effective .
My son is an S14 para swimmer, is autistic and has learning difficulties. Jay is always very adaptable and adjusts his coaching approach to suit my sons needs. With Jays help my son has been awarded West Midlands Regionals top male para swimmer 2023, and has gained qualification for Summer British Para Champs and English Para Champs. Jay’s feedback on the videos has been fantastic to rewatch over and over, he notices everything straight away and the tips for development has meant pb’s every race.
We will be adding regular swimmer feedback here wef 6th May 2023
review for swimmer
Hi. Just to say the session my son, Felix Farmer, had with Jay at Swimtherapy was brilliant. The focus was on improving his backstroke and it was so helpful. Jay is a natural communicator, knowledgeable and his enthusiasm and humour really helped my son to learn. Many thanks. We are telling folks how good Jay is! Best, Sophia Goddard
George Berwick 13yrs old Grantham SC
The 2 hour session you did with George before Christmas was amazing! To deconstruct and reconstruct his Fly after he’s been practicing all his faults for about 4 years was nothing short of fantastic.
George learnt a huge amount in the time and it has benefitted his swimming confidence no end.
The weekend after the session he competed in his very first 100mtr fly race and qualified for county champs off the back of it.
Not surprisingly his 100 & 200 IM times have come down and he is warming to the idea of finding a 400 IM to try, so many thanks
Both George and his sister are looking to come for another session.

My 3 kids thoroughly enjoyed the Swimtherapy sessions and that is the most important box that needed to be ticked for us..But to add to it the way Nigel approached their weaknesses and talked them through how to improve them was fantastic.
My kids have been trying to apply the techniques and drills he has recommended and they are already feeling the difference even though it’s only been a few weeks.
The kids even watch each other’s videos and listen carefully to what Nigel says about their individual techniques which again is a testament to Swimtherapys methodology.
Although we ve only managed to cover 2 strokes for each of them we can t wait to get back to trial their 2 remaining strokes.
One word to describe Swimtherapy:Excellent.
Kathryn Pinder Masters Swimmer Lincoln Vulcans
Really useful session with Nigel, wish I’d been years before, got to the crux of some underlying technique deficiencies that I was blissfully unaware of and found that it has made a huge difference. Sometimes working harder just reinforces bad habits.
Happy for my comments/ name to be posted on your website if you wish
Emily Edwards – Leicester Sharks
Thank you Nigel for an excellent two hour session with my 12 year old daughter Emily last week.
In a short space of time you managed to essentially to deconstruct her current breast stroke and rebuild it with simple but effective changes to massively improve her streamline position and leg action. I know she thoroughly enjoyed it as she is keen for another session.
I have to say the video footage is invaluable. Daughters don’t listen to their dad’s at the best of times especially when their rubbish at the thing their trying to talk to them about! Being able to repeatedly watch yourself get it right in a controlled environment not only concentrates the mind but gives you the confidence and the reassurance that you can get it right.

I really enjoyed the session. Very relaxed environment which is great for learning. Excellent facilitation by Nigel in helping me to understand my stroke faults and therefore be able to correct them.
The facilities are great – cameras from all angles and the spooky mirror so you can see yourself swimming and more importantly the debrief following each and every training suggestion.
I did like the chuck in some Persil and my washing and I could do that as well comment J
The cherry on the cake was the memory stick and coached videoing so that I could re-watch before each of my training sessions to build and improve.
“It’s always great to do a session at SwimTherapy. There is an immediate improvement. I only wished we lived closer so we could do more sessions without waiting for the school breaks.”
No problem in using my name.
See you tomorrow.
Lancaster University Swim Squad
A massive thank you to coach Nigel Kube and SwimTherapy for the freestyle technique clinic performed at Lancaster University this weekend. Huge improvements were made in the knowledge and understanding of the stroke and this was already beginning to be implemented into our performance by the time the session ended. A fantastically delivered session providing us with the necessary scope to dramatically improve our technique within our own sessions. SwimTherapy is a must for any individual or swimming club looking to better their capabilities and efficiency in the water. A brilliant service that is wholly recommendable. Thanks again. Lawrence Copeman (Captain), Alice Lilley (Vice-Captain) and Lancaster University Swimming Club.
I felt the session was really beneficial and I felt I made massive progress this time.
I’m looking forward to practising the skills in my training and feel that I know how to do this as a result of the coaching and feedback I received.
Many thanks again for an excellent session and I am happy for you to use my comments on the website if you feel appropriate.
Isla Coull – Swimmer Scotland
Isla really enjoyed the swimming session. Ari made the session fun for Isla and kept her focused on the learning of front crawl and her butter fly, Isla learnt a lot from the session, and i also learnt a lot too as a parent, Isla has been putting her home work DVD in to practice and is gaining and getting more improved results each day. we will defiantly be coming back and would recommend you to our friends. I am happy for you to put my comments on your website
George Parker Lichfield SC
Thanks to Ari for all your feedback on George’s swim technique.
He’s been putting it all into practice and can’t wait for his next Open meet to hopefully see his hard work reflected in new PB’s.
Your coaching was excellent and George really enjoyed his time with you and will be back to see you again.

Falcon ASC – Coaches Day at SwimTherapy
I would like to thank yourself and Ariadna for the coaches session that Falcon ASC attended.
In total 10 coaches attended and 4 swimmers. We spent the day picking up vital information regarding swimming technique and correction methods. Ariadna was really good with all 4 swimmers as they were different levels of ability.
I was really proud to see all 10 of my coaches fully engaged in the day. Since the SwimTherapy session there has been a very positive attitude towards supporting progression and sparked new life into progressing our club even further.
I would recommend the coach session as a way of supporting the development of the coaching team and in turn the swimmers.
Excellent day, well worth the money.
We shall return on mass again.
Thank you for the session with Corey.
Both I and Corey thought the whole experience was superb. He learnt a lot about the damage he has experienced through his breaststroke technique, and we felt everything was well considered and explained. He has much to do in training to redress his situation but we are looking forward to coming along again for you to review his progress.
The advice on his fly, which he is getting to enjoy was valuable, and ditto his main stroke freestyle where he gained some really fine tips.
I would particularly like to say how I thought Adianna was just great with Corey. He is young and not easily confident with strangers, and she made him feel at ease so well, but was in my unqualified view, a super teacher, technique and swim coach.
The facility is amazing and the whole experience well worth it.

Comments on my swim therapy session.
‘The aim of my swimming is to participate in local triathlons. The aim of doing these is to spread the training load and avoid injury as I get older. I had last been to Swim Therapy a couple of years ago and been working away and making progress but had reached a bit of a plateau. This was the first time I had met Ari( not sure on spelling here).
She quickly picked up on a couple of very specific things, explained them clearly and outlined some simple drills to embed these changes. The changes, although not huge, were immediately effective.
There are other aspects she wants to pursue when I next go back, but wisely focussed on a few things to change now and get right rather than overload my poor old brain with too long a list.
I like the attitude at Swim Therapy. Even though they also work with top level swimmers they are patient and not condescending in anyway with late starters and slow learners like me.’
