Hello, I'm Rowan
Swimming outdoors has always been part of my life. Our family holidays were in and around water, and I swam in the sea, lakes, streams and rivers in the UK from early childhood.
In 2015, I swam in my first open water swimming event and then started swimming through the winter. In 2018, I qualified as an open water swimming coach and in 2020 as a health and wellbeing coach.
I'm warm, calm and welcoming. Recognising that everyone is different, I work with the people I coach to find what motivates them and then adapt to their different learning styles and needs. Bringing years of experience as a swimming teacher, open water swimming coach, health and wellbeing coach and year-round outdoor swimmer, my coaching style makes people feel safe, relaxed and happy as they explore swimming outdoors.
