What others are saying
Luke & Gemma – Swimmers
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and Aria for a great session today. Gemma and Luke have gone away having lots to work on and feeling very positive about their strokes.
What is great about the sessions is that it is made fun but informative and the kids go away understanding what they have to do.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
Just wanted to let you know, within a week of jess coming for her swim therapy session, she was chosen to be in the clubs relay team at county champs. She was brilliant and she helped her team get a 3rd place and a bronze medal. Im sure that Ari had a part to play in her performance.
Many thanks again and see you soon,
Both my girls have been to sessions now and they both enjoyed and gained a lot from it. Ari was brilliant with them both she really made the session enjoyable and most important, understandable for them. We hope to see you again soon.
It will be fine to publish our comments.

“There is no doubt that the system works. The swimmer can really see and understand the flaws in his or her technique at the start of a session and is able to improve significantly by the end of a single session.”
Mandy Barker – Coach Falcon ASC
I have been today to swim therapy as a coach with Falcon ASC, I just wanted to say a big thank you, I thought it was a fantastic experience & I have picked up some great tips to pass onto my swimmers.
I had a superb session with Ariadna yesterday. As usual she found lots of things to work on to improve my stroke. We worked mainly on my frontcrawl and with the help of the cameras I could clearly see what I needed to improve on for my stroke to be more efficient. Ariadna had lots of different techniques to help put things right and I now have lots of things to work on. I highly recommend a session with Swimtherapy you will not be disappointed. Thanks Ariadna!! If only I lived closer I would visit regularly!
Abbey Turnbull 12 Boldmere SC
Just a quick note to say thank you for the fantastic technique session you gave Abbey on Thursday. She thoroughly enjoyed herself and returned to club full of ideas. We have shared the video with her coach and friends. Arianda pitched the session perfectly to meet her needs. We will certainly back to work on a couple of her other strokes. Thanks again
Sam and Abbey.

Had another fatastic session at SwimTherpy. My daughter comes 3 times a year and continually benefits from all the technical advice given. This results in increased performance in training and especially at competitions 🙂
Kate, anonymous please. Thanks
Jamie Lyall – Triathlete
Absolutely. Really enjoyed the session. Ariadna makes learning easy to understand and fun. I feel like I get so much out of the session itself, being able to see the playback of your swimming, making amendments and the feeling and seeing the difference. Then having the disk to go back and review every now and again. Brilliant.
Andrew Fawcett – Triathlete
Firstly I must thank you for an extermely enjoyable experience at Swim Therapy,
I was made to feel exremely welcome when I arrived, and it was a pleasure to meet you all. Nigel is very friendly, and is obviously extremely enthusiatic about improving anyones swimming ability.
Ari is very friendly and knowledgable, and does not at any point make you feel uncomfortable, no matter what you level of swimming. I felt all of her advice was very easy to understand and follow, and came away from my session with invaluable advice, and feeling much more confident with my swimming technique. I have found my recording invaluable, and I have advised all the members at Coalville Triathlon Club to consider coming to you, as they would undoubtably improve.
I cannot recommend Swim Therapy highly enough, and I will definately be making a return visit soon.
Again ,many thanks for your hospitaity, and I wish everyone at Swim Therapy a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

11yr old – West Midlands area
On the 20th December 2014 our 11 year old son attended a 2 hour session, working on free and backstroke. Ariadna very quickly put my son at his ease and the session absolutely flew by. The speed at which Ariadna identified strengths and weaknesses was impressive and as she was able to point specific
areas out on the screen to the swimmer the effect was immediate. We left with a 10 minute video file with voice over which reinforced the key points to work on. I can totally recommend the facility and the coach.
Since the session the improvement on both strokes has been very noticeable and impressive.
We will definitely return soon.
Paul Butler – Triathlete
Just a quick update to say that I have been continuing to apply the coaching suggestions made on my recent session and I am already starting to see an improvement in my 100m splits. I am swimming with more confidence too and feel I am nhigher in the water which is helping. I still have a way to go but am looking forward to more training and improving going forward.
I was extolling the virtues of Swimtherapy to a running friend during a 6 mile run last night, who had mentioned she had received a voucher from a recent race she had done. I then explained what it was all about and so she will hopefully be in touch.
Anyway I wish you and the team a very Merry Xmas and best Wishes for the New Year!
See you in 2015.
10yr old Nottinghamshire swimmer
Good evening, our visit on Monday 8th was so worthwhile and full of excellent advice, it is hard to put into words the impact it has had, the advice was put over to my daughter in such a fun way it made it so easy for her to understand and impliment, the whole experience was so impressive from minute 1 and Ari has a great manner which put her at ease immediately. It has given my daughter such a shot in the arm and a real sense of wanting to improve and put into practice what see was told.
We will definitely be returning and will also be booking my youngest daughter in for a session early in the New Year as I see it as being a hugley benificial stepping stone in there swimming progression path.
Many many thanks and regards
I have to say that at this stage I would prefer to remain anonymous but by all means publish my views and comments.
Simon Edwards – Carlton Forum Masters Swimmer
After a very long break between finishing my competitive swimming at the age of 18 and starting Masters swimming 29 years later my stroke technique certainly needed improvement ..
I attended a 2 hour session at Swim Therapy with Ariadna specifically to improve my very old freestyle. The improvements and changes Ari has made has completely changed my stroke . The instant video replay and Ari’s excellent coaching made it very easy for me to adjust and improve my technique during the session .
Her enthusiasm throughout made it a very enjoyable and fun experience .
I am now practising my body position , stretch , catch and rotation as much as possible and can feel my stoke becoming much smoother and more powerful .
I will certainly return for a refresh and to start on a new stroke as well ..
I would recommend anyone who wants to improve their stoke and technique to have a session with Ari .
Thanks very much
Paul Butler – Triathlete 4th Dec 2014
Just a quick thank you and to say how much I not only enjoyed the session but also how useful it has been. I cannot wait to get in the pool in the morning to put some of your coaching into practice and I firmly believe that it will make me faster immediately. I was very impressed with the equipment set-up and particularly with Ariadna’s coaching style, she made everything very clear and easy to understand and was always positive in her feedback while still pointing out the room for improvement.
I look forward to another session in the new Year.
I will be feeding back to both my Triathlon Club and the Running club, you will certainly be getting more visits!
Thanks again, hope you all have a great Xmas and best wishes for 2015.
Stig Knudsen – Triathlete NORWAY
Many thanks for your fantastic coaching. I have now trained about 3 weeks since my visit in Leicester and I am making progress, especially with the rotation and the stretching. I am working hard with my sinking legs. Give Ariadna my regards, she is a very competent swimming teacher. I hope to come back some day.
Many thanks for the session yesterday.
It was a good first time session, after initially getting accustomed to swimming against the flow rather than in a pool it was a real benefit to have the video analysis and expert feedback given by Adriana.
I now look forward to putting the pointers into practice and no doubt will be back soon and would recommend a session to all those that want to see where there stroke isn’t quite working as it should.
Jen Rolfe – Triathlete
I attended a Swim Therapy coaching session back in July this year. Apologies for the delay but I wanted to email you with some feedback.
I had an absolute blast at Swim Therapy, my coach (who’s name I cannot remember but she had a lovely Spanish accent!) was bubbly, enthusiastic and instantly made me feel at ease. We got straight into the nitty gritty and within just an hour I had learnt so much about how to improve my stroke.
The instant video feedback is such a useful coaching tool as it enables the coach to show you exactly what you need to work on. The video with voiceover was great to take home with me for further reflection after my session. The before and after videos of my stroke after just a one hour session were shocking. My stroke changed so much in such a short space of time.
I am not the strongest swimmer so have a lot to work on still and would definitely come back for another session, probably more! I compete in triathlons and have already managed to take 2mins off my personal best swim time and feel that Swim Therapy is to thank for that!
I would heartily recommend Swim Therapy to anyone who thinks they have any room for improvement. It is an excellent experience.
Robin Guy – Triathlete
Thank you for your e-mail, the swim session was excellent, as a long distance triathlete I’ve always wanted to gain some proper guidance from a qualified instructor and Ariadna did a brilliant job and gave good clear instruction on the many points where I was going wrong. By the end of the one hour session I was already feeling stronger in the water just down to tweaking my technique.
I was given the video footage to take away, to remind me of the areas I need to work on, with 5 different camera angles and Ariada’s voice over you can really see the mistakes you’re making.
If looking to improve your swim times I would definitely recommend a session with Swimtherapy.
Robin Guy – Newport & District Running Club
Camille & Georgia Duff – Witney & District SC
We always have an outstanding experience when we visit and both our girls hugely enjoyed the sessions yesterday. Ari is an excellent teacher catering for a range of learning styles. She brings the techniques to life using innovative teaching strategies enabling the swimmers to put everything into practise with a thorough understanding. It was Camille’s first visit as a young competitor just starting out and Georgia’s third as a age group competitor working towards national qualifying times, both gained greatly at their own levels and have got in the pool today and started work on all the points carried forward from yesterday. We’ll be back for sure and would always recommend Swim Therapy.
