Meet Anne our new Swimming Instructor Here at Champneys Henlow.

Although Anne is a familiar face and has been a member with us for 5 years now and taking on this adventure to share her love and passion for swimming to you all.

Anne welcomes all abilities and age groups for 1:1 lessons and a firm believer that 30 minutes is all you require.

Hi, my name is Anne and I will be working with Champneys to provide one to one swimming lessons for members and guests.


I have been a qualified swimming teacher for over 30 years teaching all ages from toddlers to adults. I ran my own swim school for several years and have worked with many talented teachers and elite coaches.


My aim is to offer members and guests a chance to learn new skills ranging from water confidence to stroke improvement. I am very much looking forward to starting this new venture and hope to see some of you very soon.

Here are just some of the things you can be taught in a 30-minute lesson:

  • Learn how to swim
  • Stroke improvement
  • Breathing technique
  • Fitness & Stamina
  • Muscle Tone
  • Total body workout

Please enquire at the Wellbeing and Fitness desk for more info.


“During my childhood I experienced a traumatic water incident whilst on holiday with my parents. With Anne's help I have overcome my fears, and I now swim three times a week with confidence, and I may say, enjoyment!
Her calm presence, patience and teaching skills have given me the ability to learn to love something that used to make me anxious, and I know without doubt she will be able to help many more people to achieve their own goals."
