1-2-1 Swimming coaching with Adam Faulkner is suitable for anyone who can swim 100m all the way up to an international swimmer requiring their stroke tweaking and every level in-between. Using his wealth of international swimming experience Adam guarantees to revolutionise your swimming experience. During your series of sessions your stroke will be broken down and analysed to enable you to be the best you can be.

A preferred option of many adults is to receive teaching on a one to one basis. Guarantee your improvement in the pool with private swimming lessons and have with the session tailored to you. We will ensure you set some goals before you start and our job then will be to help you reach them.

You probably have a busy life and trying to find time to squeeze in swimming lessons isnt that easy. We understand that and thats why we have access to lots of pool time throughout Wiltshire so will work to fit in with YOU!

Whether you are looking to swim a length or a mile private lessons will help you get there - quickly.

One to one sessions are proven to be the best way of improving your child’s swimming. The same teacher will stay with your child throughout their course of lessons and so will be able to monitor and improve your child at their own pace.

- We follow the nationally recognised ASA Learn to Swim Pathway
- Lessons are either 30 / 45 / 60 minutes
- We teach all abilities (Yes even a child who has never entered a pool before!)
- You WILL be able to engage with your child’s teacher, you will also have the mobile number of Adam if you ever have one of those burning questions or queries!

The backbone of the ASA Learn to Swim Programme concentrates on the FUNdamentals of swimming and all swimming teachers have to be ASA level 2 Qualified. That’s just a pre-requisite for us here at UK Swim Academy. All teachers are handpicked and assessed by UK Swim Academy Director and Double Olympian Adam Faulkner.

We keep our team small and only use the best. Your child is guaranteed to have FUN and LEARN!

As a former distance Swimmer and having broken the 15 minute barrier for 1500m Freestyle, there is no one more qualified than Adam Faulkner to help you with your swimming.

Its very often the case that Swimming will be the weaker part of a Triathlon. Don't let it be. You will find out how to work smarter, not harder and exit the swimming phase quicker with bags more energy.

See this testimonial below of an athlete who is now finishing his swimming phase over the ironman distance 3 minutes quicker having completed over 1000 LESS strokes!

Al Meadows - Iromman:

As an aspiring amateur triathlete a good opening swim leg is crucial to a solid performance in a race. When I approached Adam for his help in September 13 I could barely swim 100 m in a pool without feeling totally exhausted and I feared going swimming. Yet after just 10 minutes of tuition from him my stroke and movement through the water had changed dramatically ,significantly reducing the number of strokes per length yet covering the distance faster and almost effortlessly. Through small simple changes every few weeks he grew my confidence and after only a couple of months I was able to push out a mile in a reasonable time. After 4 months of following his dedicated personal program, a mile seems insignificant and you look forward to pool time.
Adam has a very relaxed and engaging manner and is a natural swim coach. He listens and understands individual needs and always brings out the positives in every session. He only makes a couple of small changes at a time but ensures that you understand them and the effect that they should be having, even the drills that he sets as part of the training are fun. I was unaware of his swimming achievements when I asked him for help yet despite his modesty he makes you feel like the Olympian!

So...... Why Do You Need Swimming In Your Life?

1. Schools don't teach children like they used to?

1 in 5 children leave school unable to swim.

We at UK Swim Academy want to help change this statistic.

2. Safety?

Drowning is the third most common cause of accidental death for children in the UK.

3. Fitness?

Because water is about 800 times denser than air, you can work harder, and burn more calories in a pool than out of it

4. Health?

At least one in six people in Britain suffer from depression at any one time - rhythmic and aerobic forms of exercise such as swimming can improve psychological well being

5. Burn those calories?

An hour of swimming will burn up to 650 calories. It burns off more calories than walking or biking

6. Avoid Injuries?

Swimming can support up to 90% of the body’s weight in the water, meaning that those with disabilities, injuries or illnesses such as arthritis can take part in a comfortable and safe environment

7. Muscle Tone?

Different swimming strokes challenge different muscles within the body so you can choose where you tone up
