Claire is a supportive, encouraging and patient swim coach. She is very intuitive and has a good sense of your limitations. The TI technique is very logical and well taught with plenty of resources.

Antonella De Rosa


Every time I get in the water now I feel an immense sense of gratitude to Claire. Her swim programs are excellent and the TI technique has made swimming an immensely enjoyable experience. She is also fantastic at keeping in contact even when the programs have finished. She is always happy to answer questions and impart her knowledge. I cant recommend Claire enough.

Harry Karadimas


Claire is a fantastic swim coach. She imparts an excellent knowledge of swimming technique and can explain herself clearly and succinctly. However, she doesn't let the technique overwhelm the session and you will get fit under her guidance! She has a friendly and approachable manner, and fosters a great group atmosphere. I credit Claire with giving me back my swim mojo, and a much improved stroke.

Tamera Lang

Claire is an experienced coach who brings fun, fitness and a true understanding of the mechanics of good swimming to her training. She has helped those who have never swum to be regular ocean swimmers, and at the other end trains serious competitors for their next race. Whatever swim journey you are on, you will benefit and gain from Swimlab..!
