After yesterday’s session, I swam 2.5K this morning, four minutes faster than usual. Thank you!


In Summer of 2017 I was a non-swimmer, so visited the lovely ladies at Tri n Swim Well. 3 months later I completed my first Sprint Triathlon.

I had a wet suit fitted at Tri Farm on Sat and have have been sea swimming twice since then. The Orca suit I now have is worth every penny and I have a big thankyou to Gill for helping me and for giving me some excellent tips on how to improve my swimming overall.  I strongly recommend Gill and Dawn for their expertise on kit and fit and technique improvement ! 

Anne Marie Perkins

My daughters are club swimmers and are being coached by Gill and Dawn . The individual focus that Gill and Dawn offer has improved both girls hugely. Their stroke technique, efficiency, pacing and overall development has improved two fold. This has resulted in them setting best times in all areas . Gill and Dawn are brilliant and I highly recommend them.

"I would thoroughly recommend Gill and Dawn. They are absolutely excellent at tweaking technique, and identifying and correcting bad habits. Their coaching has always made a really big difference to race times."

Rebecca Chelmsford

Following my session with you in the summer, I’ve been using the tips and guidance you’ve given me both in the pool and the sea and the follow up video, to work on my stroke development and confidence in sea swimming. I’m really chuffed with my progress, having completed several short swims in the sea, both off the beach and jumping in off the boat over the summer. I’ve also restarted open water swimming at Stoney Cove in skins this time now I feel more confident and capable and can feel such a difference in my comfort while swimming and my pace has picked up as well.
Really appreciate everything you gave to my session with you and highly recommend to anyone else considering. 


Very friendly welcome which put me at ease.You know when someone knows their stuff when the one wetsuit they sourced for your budget goes on without a struggle and fits perfectly.Best of all you get to test it out and have your technique looked at in the pool as well. Being able to see how I swam and given a couple of small changes to work on is a game changer for me.Don't bother buying a number of suits online speak to Tri n Swim well first.You won't regret it!

Paul Robertson

very good service, so happy I chose to go here as I managed to get a wet suit that actually fits me. got to test it out in their hydro pool thing which was really clean, the lady's were very knowledgeable and welcoming. I walked away with a great suit which fitted amazing and some very good pointers for my swim style thanks
