Paul Taaffe

Iv'e always had a passion for sports and health development, having worked in the field for over 13 years. I am currently the head coach at swimming lessons london.

I originally worked as a  multi-sports coach and manager for London boroughs, whilst completing degrees in Sports Science and Health Studies. There is overwhelming evidence proving that Swimming regularly, has terrific benefits to anyone's lifestyle and well being . Not only from a safety point of view, but from the perspective that it enriches training programs and is a great alternative workout especially for people rehabilitating/recovering from injury. It is a joint friendly, full body workout which has little risk of injury. I trained in 2000 to become an A.S.A. level 2 coach and am affiliated with the Institute of Swimming Teachers & Coaches.

I specialize in aqua-phobia, training principles, stroke improvement.
