 “Dive into the world of swimming with Pool2Lake Open Water Training! I offer professional swim coaching that helps you with refining your front crawl technique and boosting endurance in the Hertfordshire area. My open water coaching sessions take place at the stunning Denham Waterski, which is an awesome lake for you to learn all your open water techniques and grow in open water confidence.


Swimming in the open water is not just a physical challenge but also a mental challenge that brings the thrill of conquering something new. My coaching will guide you towards achieving your swim goals, whether you’re into recreational swimming, wild swims, or gearing up for competitive events like triathlons, swimruns, or marathon swims. I look forward to helping you achieve your swim success!


Transitioning from pool to open water might feel like a plunge into the unknown. I am here to turn uncertainties into triumphs. I want to make sure you have a positive transition, which vital for your open water success. 



I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and embarked on a UK adventure in 2004, and the adventure continues. My love for swimming led me to becoming an open water coach in 2016 where I got my Swim England level 2 open water coaching qualifications. Taking it further, I obtained additional qualifications from the STA in May 2019, under the guidance of Keri-anne Payne, a two-time 10-kilometer open water world champion and Olympic silver medallist.


For me, swimming isn't just coaching – it's a passion. I enjoy sharing the entire swimming experience with others and will likely convince you to explore open water upon meeting. I try to bring a mixture of fun and understanding to my coaching approach, recognising the challenges of mastering front crawl and open water swimming.

Having an efficient front crawl takes time & dedication. 

Beware open water swimming is addictive!!

"Beware…. Heather’s enthusiasm for open water swimming is highly contagious.  Once she’s shown you the ropes, you just can’t stop!  Heather’s patience, encouragement and humour made me feel at ease and very welcome.  I can’t thank Heather for introducing me (a 50 year old, not-very-fit woman) to open water swimming. If anyone is considering dipping their toes in the water, you won’t be disappointed if you contact Heather". Adelle
