I had also never swam in a resistance pool before or knew how it all worked.
After an hour and a half session with a friendly, encouraging and very knowledgable coach (Stuart )I don’t know what I was worried about. From the outset, you control the pace of both the pool resistance (flow) and how long you swim for. There is no pressure to swim continuously at all. I swam for a minute or two, reviewed the video (which is weirdly awesome seeing yourself swim in real time) and then with some coaching started the process again using different techniques. I am thrilled that I took 10-15 seconds off my 100 meters in the end. The smallest of changes made a huge difference. This was a great experience (birthday present). I loved every second and will be booking in my girls (club swimmers) my son (novice swimmer) and husband who is a leisure swimmer like me. It does not matter what level of swimming you are at.
The pool and facilities are what you need, it’s easy to get to, easy to park (you get a parking pass) and best of all you get videos with coaching narrative. I can’t wait to get back into my
