    Comments:  The advice Julie gave was delivered in such a friendly, down to earth way manner that I have found myself completely taking it on board and thinking of the words each time I swim! As a relatively novice swimmer, I was concerned that I was 'too much a beginner' to attend such a session but Julie quickly and completely erased those thoughts with her open friendly and non-judgemental approach. I found the session so incredibly beneficial that I really feel that I shall become a confident and competent swimmer! I shall definitely return for another session in the future!

    Comments:  I can strongly recommend booking with Get Set For Success Ltd and Julie. Unlike some other companies you ned a medical and a three hour qualifier for Windermere. This isn't a negative - it's about ensuring the swimmer is ready for the challenge ahead. The saying goes that the proof is in the pudding and that's why there was a 100% success rate this year. May book for my next challenge!

    Comments:  our session with us really inspired me, and I'm so glad I did that 1500. I haven't felt that proud of myself in a long time! I loved the race itself, too. Next year, I was thinking of either trying the 3K, or finding a charity to raise money for (or maybe both). It would be nice for other people to get something good out of things I enjoy. I love the feeling of knowing that I've done soemthing that I didn't know if I could manage - especially when some people told me I wouldn't succeed - and I owe that to you, so thank you.

    Comments:  My daughter ,Isabella, attended Julie’s Open Water swim camp on Lake Windermere as a stepping stone to achieving her ambition of completing a solo swim of the Lake. Izzy being only 13 was the youngest student but was lovingly looked after by Julie, her instructors and fellow students. In the space of just a few days Izzy progressed from never swimming in open water to being more than comfortable and completing a 3 hour qualifying swim in the Lake. Isabella loved the course and thanks to Julie’s input and encouragement has come back with a great big grin on her face and full of a new found confidence. Thanks Julie and her team.
