Jackie Robson TI Level 2 Coach
Jackie has always loved swimming and spent her formative years as a club swimmer. After a 15 year break, she discovered triathlon but was often found huffing and puffing after the swim leg until she was introduced to Total Immersion 6 years ago. After a few sessions with Kim Kemp, she hopped out the river during Windsor Triathlon as fresh as a daisy and is now often found in a lake or a river and has enjoyed longer distance events such as the Bantham Swoosh and the Jubilee 10K. As a former karate instructor, the kaizen ethos of Total Immersion really appeals to Jackie.
Jackie became a Mum in 2018 and decided to finish her career in Customer Experience and Research to focus on her son and her passion for swimming. She completed her TI coaching apprenticeship with Tracey Baumann and loves passing on the skills of effortless swimming to all ages and abilities in the Endless Pool in Egham.
Kim has been with SwimSolutionS for almost 5 years and has worked with hundreds of clients of all ages and abilities, some having achieved incredible PB’s at IronMan level or having gone on to swim the length of Lake Windermere! Her experience and results speak for themselves!
Kim was a keen junior club swimmer as a child. She came back to swimming after a career in banking and experienced the problems shared by many, exhaustion even from swimming short distances.
She quickly understood that the issue was not fitness related, but to do with her technique. By mastering Total Immersion technique she went from struggling to swim more than a length, to enjoying swimming continuous swims of one or two hours.
Kim decide to pass on the skills to others and become a Total Immersion Coach. She served her apprenticeship under Tracey Baumann and qualified as TI Coach almost 5 years ago. She coaches all ages and abilities in the Endless Pool in Egham.
Julie Ward TI Level 2 Coach
Julie has been swimming TI since 2012 from a background of very little swim experience. She developed a passion for swimming and found a love of open water and long distance swims with 10k being her favourite event. She now swims all year round in open water. She has also taken part in triathlons but now prefers to concentrate on swimming. The swim leg of triathlon used to be her fear but that changed with her learning and progress at SwimSolutionS.
Julie now loves to teach others to swim with confidence and grace and worked alongside Tracey Baumann as an apprentice coach. She believes that age is no barrier either young or old and that by focussing on the process the goal can and will be achieved, whether it be a race or simply swimming for health and enjoyment.
