Pool Based Triathlon Swimming Lessons 1-2-1

Speedy Swimming has provided high level quality triathlon and front crawl swim coaching for over 20 years. We’ve coached all levels of triathletes and masters swimmer, plus many beginners.  We have a wealth of experience to impart to you and ensure this is done in a relaxed and friendly environment.


Our ever popular lessons are full of practical tips, skills and drills to help you achieve and develop all aspects of your front crawl.


Learn all the skills and technique drills you'll need to swim front crawl with more efficiency, speed and power to help you achieve your training and event / racing goals!



We offer one hour sessions during the week, including day times and some evenings when lane swimming is scheduled. There are always lanes in the pool, although wetsuit swimming is only allowed in the following times:


  • Monday to Friday 0800 -1900 
  • Saturday mornings




These sessions are for all levels of open water swimmer:

  • Triathletes - sprint to Ironman distance and beyond
  • Beginners who can swim 25 metres
  • To those wanting to improve their open water skills and techniques from 750m to 14km swims. 


We also do Endless Pool swim video analysis sessions in Chertsey, and a 5 stage Endless Pool to Open Water course which includes 2 pool based sessions at Guildford Lido and 2 open water sessions at ThorpeLake.



Each session lasts for one hour and will include a 5 minute warm up and a coach analysis of your front crawl stroke technique above and underwater.

This will be followed by teaching you the skills and drills of front crawl swimming as required and bespoke to your own personal skill set. For example, this can include: learning how to achieve a higher body position, reduce drag and resistance, improve your breathing technique, catching the water better, and how to improve your rotation and becoming more streamlined in the water, plus up to 80 other front crawl techniques and stroke corrections!

You’ll then receive your personal swim drills after each swim lesson by email for you to practice in between swim lessons.


  • Learn how to swim more efficiently using our 6 phase swim skills and drills series
  • Increase your distance per stroke to push more water behind you
  • Enhance your feel for the water improving your catch and pull phases to swim faster
  • Learn how using a high and earlier vertical forearm for greater efficiency
  • Understand how to kick effectively from your hips so you’re not wasting energy
  • Breathing techniques to help you relax and reduce a feeling of panic in the water
  • Better pacing control and awareness from structured swim sessions
  • Learn new tips and techniques in each session



Wetsuit swimming is recommended for lessons at Guildford Lido, although you can swim without needing a wetsuit. We advise having warm clothes to put on after the session has finished. There is tea and coffee after and snacks to eat after there.

Please bring your own  water bottle, swim cap and goggles.

Recommended swim kit list to bring along:

If you need any of the above swim kit before starting your session you can order via Race Zone 3 online.

We have arranged a 20% discount for you to use with all Race Zone 3 using the code: Speedyswim20


You can either have a 1-2-1 open water lesson, or share a lesson with a friend or 2or 3, and split the cost. Swimming with a training partner of similar ability will also mean we’re able to practise techniques more like swimming in close proximity, and drafting in a group.

Sessions are booked in blocks of £265 for 5 sessions for 1-2-1 lessons, and other price points as below for 2-2-1, and 3-2-1 lessons. Single lessons are available as well.

There is plenty of parking during the day.

We do not offer refunds if you fail to give us notice of less than 24 hours. Please see terms and conditions for more info.

Testimonials for Group swim sessions:


 "Nick ran the swim sessions for David Lloyd Triathlon club for 6 months and in that time he consistently applied his training methods and approach to swim training that enabled me and all of the other members of the tri club to reduce our 400m time trial times. More than that his sense of humour made these sessions enjoyable and the hour in the water fly by!

I can highly recommend him as a trainer/coach, you won’t be disappointed. “John Leysen


"Nick's training methods and approach to swim training enabled me and all of the other members of our triathlon club to reduce our 400m time trial times." Richard Wild
