Do you want to take your fitness and strength to the next level?
Swimming is a very special aspect of training at the Baths and is an incredible way to build strength, endurance and to broaden your fitness capabilities beyond a gym setting. If you are interested in changing up your training routine and are looking for a new challenge, then this is for you.
With use of our iconic Sea Baths, we love helping people find new ways of improving their lifestyle, finding new challenges, and moving their bodies intuitively. This is why we are so proud to offer personalised swimming lessons with our Mike Gregory. Our club has seen many swimmers pass through its walls and water – from beginners to world champions – and it is an aspect of wellbeing that holds a sacred place at the Baths. Open water swimming is a challenging, rewarding, non-impact form of movement that is also a fun way to build endurance, strength and stamina under the guidance of a professional. Contact us if you would like to enquire or make a booking today.
We offer private swimming coaching and the Intro Open Water Swimming class with Mike Gregory. Become more confident in the water and improve your swimming style with individual, buddy sessions & small group sessions right in the heart of Bayside. Mike's experience is extensive, and he has a passion for coaching regardless of ability. He has coached and witnessed the success of kids, beginners and multiple-time English Channel swimmers. His expertise and knowledge is not limited to professionals, and he welcomes everyone with his professionalism and genuine love for bringing the best out in each swimmer he works with.
Mike has a way with people, and is so passionate about helping to bring the best out of his clients, friends and fellow swimmers. He offers group squad training at our club as well as one-on-one individual sessions to work with you on your swimming and open-water goals.
After a loooong hiatus (to have my baby girl) I finally jumped back in the water. I quite literally felt the stress of 2020 wash away. Mike’s swim session was incredible. I was greeted with a beaming welcoming smile and felt instantly part of the group. The varied ability and different fitness levels (or unfitness... me) within the group makes for a fun and unintimidating session. I highly recommend Mike!

Mike has done everything in swimming from the English Channel to swimming Loch Ness. But you wouldn’t know that when he coaches because he meets you where you’re at, whether it be your first time in open water or a more seasoned swimmer. He really loves the sport of swimming and it shows in the enthusiasm he shows in wanting to see you improve.

Mike’s energy and passion for open water swimming is contagious and carries throughout his training sessions. Mike has the ability to connect and coach with swimmers at all levels from complete beginner to the crazy experienced channel swimmers. Every session is different, challenging and most importantly fun! The cameraderie of the squad is a direct reflection of Mike, great coach and great human!

Brighton Baths provides a very safe training environment with the unique advantage for personal coaching from the platforms surrounding the Baths. Mike‘s ability to teach all levels including my initial basic skill level by adopting simple easy to follow proven training techniques in his classes that allowed me to see huge improvements in a very short period of time. Mikes experience helps identify areas that you specifically can improve your swimming techniques with fun training drills during his coaching sessions. Mikes classes are really enjoyable, very safe, easy to follow and get results. I not only improved my swimming skills, times/distances but I also achieved my fitness goals including 10 KG weight loss since I joined the Brighton Baths coaching. I train regularly now with Mike and I have developed a passion and confidence with my open water swimming in all weather conditions that has allowed me to set some big goals for the future with Mike’s amazing coaching assistance. I swim most days at Brighton Baths as I love the positive energy from all the staff and the swimming community at the Baths.
