My passion for swimming and outstanding coaching inspired me to establish CreateFit in 2007. 


Having participated in competitive swimming to a high level throughout my youth, I experienced coaching that really drew the best out in me along the way. It is this same objective that I hope to achieve with my clients - regardless of current starting ability, I know that everyone can enjoy the confidence and fluid technique of swimming effortlessly to any level.  I have also written a series of swimming eBooks available to download on your smart device.


I look forward to sharing my swimming and coaching experience to ensure we successfully achieve your swimming goals.

I am a water sports fan and outdoor enthusiast. Having put in the hours in the pool swimming competitively during my youth, I now prefer the adventure of lakes, rivers and choppy seas.


As well as coaching, I enjoy being a swimming guide, introducing other people to the beauty of these landscapes.

I have a lifelong interest in people and human behaviour which was developed during my degree in psychology and philosophy. As a result, I am passionate about helping others develop their skills, gain confidence and have fun in the water.

I look forward to being able to help you strive toward achieving your swimming goals.

I have always had a passion for sport in general but I was lucky enough to find a love for swimming at very young age. This led me to compete at a county, regional, national and international level over my career. I also have experience competing at regional and national open water competitions. I stopped swimming competitively to focus on my studies and I am currently studying for my BSc in Biochemistry at the University of Bristol, where I found a new love for water polo and captain the University's second team.


As well as water sports I love the great outdoors too and try to stay as active as I can!


After the elite coaching I received whilst competing I am now excited to spread my knowledge and love for the sport to inspire more people to get involved and feel comfortable in the water whilst tailoring sessions to your personal needs to enable you to reach your goals.
