With Dr Michael Peyrebrune

Attended an International Coaching Clinic with Dr Michael Peyrebrune.

Dr. Michael Peyrebrune is a Senior Physiologist and National Swimming Lead with the English Institute of Sport. He was a GB International swimmer for 5 years and the Swimming Director of Coaching at Loughborough University for 7 years. As a former England Director of Swimming, he helped to set up the World Class Performance programme and contributed to the successful bid for World Class Potential funding. He currently works with the British International swimmers and their coaches at the National centre in Loughborough and continues to publish through applied collaborative work with a number of Universities.

From Dr Michael Peyrebrune sharing and experiences, we learnt a lot more on how to develop our swimmers and his emphasis on endurance training for athletes got us on the right note. We are constantly upgrading ourselves to be better teachers & coaches.

Everyday we are learning something new. Today, we learnt something new and that makes us a better teacher/coach than yesterday.

It was a good learning experience to be learning from an international coach who has worked with and produce Olympic swimmers like Rebecca Adlington.
