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. 


Weekdays 9.15am - 1.00pm

Saturdays 8.15am - 12.00pm

Swimming didn’t come easy to me as an adult, and this is perhaps why I have really enjoyed the journey of discovering how to swim, how to improve, and in the last 10 years, how to coach this wonderful sport.

I now coach triathletes to take part in both open water, sea and pool-based events. As well as competing myself in middle and long distance triathlons.

Coaching adults to swim, whether it be those nervous of their first time, to trying to knock precious seconds off their main race this season, just makes me smile. Discovering your goals, seeing your progress, and unleashing the swimmer we all have in us is a great privilege of being a swim coach.

But the biggest lesson you can learn in swimming is how to relax, have fun and try new things.

I look forward to meeting you and finding out how swimming can be a positive part of your life.


Tuesdays 2.30-8.30pm

Are you one of those people who is reluctant to enjoy the sea because you don’t feel confident in the water? Or maybe you’re happy to jump in, but quickly tire of the struggle to swim and the effort to breathe? With care, we will guide you past these issues and develop a new, more enjoyable experience in the water. 

What began for me as a boisterous hobby evolved naturally into competing at the highest level for my club. Now, for the best part of a decade, I’ve enjoyed the flip side of the coin as a swimming coach. The pleasure of my role is indescribable, from building confidence in those who have never learned to swim, to exposing the more experienced to the reality of effortless swimming. 

As a beginner, within the first session you will be swimming 10 meters with minimal effort. From there on, we will build the optimal stroke together. 

Meet me poolside where we will realise your goals.



Wednesdays 3.15-6.15pm

Thursdays 5.30-7.45pm
