Carolyn Macdonald
“I’ve never felt so comfortable in the water, swimming really helps me relax and unwind after a busy day. My coach has a calm, gentle and patient approach with a keen eye and great knowledge to improve my swimming technique with just a slight adjustment.

I highly recommend Swim Now to anyone looking to learn to swim or improve their technique.”

— Carolyn Macdonald, Class Teacher


So why choose Swim Now?

  1. We love working with clients that share our passion for swimming.

We love what we do! There’s nothing better than meeting someone who wants to develop their skills and learn the different strokes and helping them to achieve a lifelong goal.


  1. We guarantee you will meet your swimming goals.

You may be reading this thinking “swimming sounds great, but I’ll never be able to do that”. With our guarantee, we promise you can. We won’t stop until you feel comfortable and relaxed in the water on your front and back. We create a custom plan to fit your individual needs.


  1. We know what works.

Not only are we qualified and fully insured, we have a clear process that gets fast effective results. We break each stroke down into simple stroke drills and progressively build the difficulty of each practice to achieve a balanced stroke. We’ve worked with hundreds clients of different abilities.


  1. We specialise in one to one coaching.

We’ve experienced the disappointment of group lessons. Teaching large groups in noisy swimming pools, with children running wild and lane swimmers splashing up and down right next to our lesson.

Our personalised approach for one to one coaching means you can learn at your own pace and not have to wait for real time suggestions for improvements, helping you to get better faster.



A little bit about our team

We are four brothers, all from a sporting background. We practically grew up at the swimming pool. At first, swimming was a hobby but with our competitive nature it soon developed into a competition.

Gareth -the youngest brother- has competed at the highest level. He’s a European gold medalist and Commonwealth Games bronze medalist on 4x200m freestyle.

All four of us helped out at our local swimming club teaching kids lessons. We passed the appropriate ASA teaching and coaching qualifications and now pass on our experience to our clients. We currently work with around 50 clients of different ages and abilities. We look to take 5-6 new clients into our swimming program each month.




Our fantastic pool

Our 20m private pool is perfect for learning to swim; the ideal size and depth for learning.

The facilities include jacuzzi, sauna and steam room for winding down after your lesson.

Some great little ‘extras’ such as complimentary towel service and toiletries, cool bottled water and secure changing facilities are all part of the five-star service.



About Swim Now

We launched Swim Now to help people who are struggling to learn to swim, or simply want to improve.

We wanted to create a place that’s private, a place where it’s ok to feel embarrassed at times, a place where you can learn at your own pace and feel relaxed.

Many of our clients experienced difficulty with floating, coordination and nerves. We teach the basics, give simple, effective instructions and specialise in getting brilliant results.

We GUARANTEE that we’ll work with each and every client until they feel totally comfortable in the water.

— Alistair Mills, Swim Now

We encourage you, teach you the correct technique, motivate you to improve and share your love for the water.
