Customer Reviews

Gspo13 ,

Good content but too quiet

Love the stuff you guys discuss and I always come away with a nugget of information....BUT I tend to listen to podcasts when out cycling or even on the train, but I can't ever put yours on because I can hardly hear a thing.

Huw 1 ,

Excellent podcast

Great information

Jon the boiled spaghetti ,

A great listen

A great series. I really like the short sections, breaking it down to the elements and focus the needs of beginner or weak swimmers. The spaghetti analogy is brilliant and has really helped me a lot to understand the degree of problem my poor psture is causing. From a purely personal viewpoint, it would be great at a later stage to do more in depth on drills etc. to work on the posture element.

Cheers!
