We are entering ironman wales this year and were very nervous about the swim - especially with the stories of jellyfish. This trip removed all fears from the swim (still scared about the bike!) and I even now love jellyfish. Calm knowledgeable instruction

Had 1-1 coaching, Andrew was very good. From organising the swim to the actual swim itself, he was helpful and brilliant advice on how to improve. The follow up review was really good too. Thank you for taking the time to help. Would definitely recommend.
