About Penny

I’ve been taking part in triathlon for more than 10 years and have raced at all distances from sprint distance to Ironman. I started out as a back of the pack swimmer with little clue about what my arms and legs were doing in the water and a kick that would send me backwards. With Total Immersion I’ve learned how to swim efficiently and effortlessly and in 2016 swam the English Channel as part of a 6 person relay team.

As well as personally understanding the challenges, frustrations and sense of achievement that learning to swim can bring, my experience as a full time professional swim coach means that I understand how to help a wide range of swimmers. I’ve worked with fitness and leisure swimmers, complete beginners as well as experienced triathletes looking to get faster.

I am a level 3 Total Immersion Swim coach and a Level 3 Triathlon Coach working full time coaching swimmers and triathletes.
