Sian started off swimming as a baby and by the age of 4 was able to swim independently. By the time she was 10 she swam her first mile (that's over 80 lengths of the Marlow Club swimming pool!) and gained her Complete Swimmers Award. Her love for swimming continued throughout her time at University where she became a qualified lifeguard and Level 2 Swimming Instructor. She now works at The Marlow Club on a Saturday and also works as a Graphic Designer during the week. She likes to spend her free time playing for her local netball team, going to the gym and travelling the world!
Ed has worked with us for some time now but mainly in a Life Guard capacity at The Marlow Club (although a qualified Instructor!) He had a major operation on his ankle which stopped him from teaching but now is recovering well and it is great to see him in the pool on a Wednesday and Thursday.
Ed has been swimming since the age of 6 and instantly fell in love with it, leading him to competing and and instructing. "I also enjoy football, yoga and when the weather's nice, cycling. I have learnt to appreciate the more sedate activities as I have got older and appreciate a good meal out with friends or a good film at the cinema."
