WELCOME TO THE OPEN WATER
Dive in and fall in love with swimming outdoors...
If you want to gain the confidence to swim or race in open water, then you've come to the right place! I'm a qualified STA Level 2 Open Water Swim Coach and experienced triathlete. I love sharing my enjoyment of the outdoors with swimmers of all ability levels and coach in the beautiful Cotswold Water Park.
Through my 'day job' as Editor of 220 Triathlon magazine I've fallen in love with outdoor swimming and am passionate about sharing that love with other swimmers. I've been lucky enough to compete all over the world, but recognise that whether you need coaching to give you the confidence to dip your toe for the first time, or to gain the edge in a triathlon swim, a friendly face makes a big difference!
Anyone thinking of getting into open water swimming or wants to gain confidence in the water should definitely book a session with Helen! Having organised a charity triathlon event it was the swim leg I was most nervous about, however without hesitation Helen offered to join me in the water for my first 3.8k swim, her bubbly personality instantly put my nerves at ease and the longer I was in the water with her the more my confidence grew! I learned to sight, breathe properly and relax in a couple of the 3.8k swims with her and I can say without a shadow of a doubt I wouldn't be the swimmer I am now without her help! Her love for the open water is infectious, and you'll definitely get hooked with swimming just like I am! Thanks buddy
