COACHES PROFILE

STEVE SMITH [FRANCE]
Certified Ocean Walker Technique Coach (L1)

ABOUT STEVE:
Steve Smith and wife Jenny moved to France in 2017 from Portsmouth UK and set up Gites at Civray to accomplish their dream of creating a training facility revolved around outdoor pursuits to include swimming, running and cycling.

In 2018, Steve and Jenny opened for business with an offering of 4 beautifully restored Gites, a heated 25m 2 lane outdoor pool, and an abundance of country roads to explore as well as many stunning open water swimming locations to choose from.

As a qualified Ocean Walker Technique coach, Steve is perfectly placed to offer 1-1 and small group lessons at his facility, with the added benefit of being able to incorporate swim sessions into a family summer holiday. You will also find Steve supporting Adam Walker on Ocean Walker swim camps Worldwide.

This is not for me……or so I thought!

My coach Steve was really patient with me despite my temper tantrums….A strange thing happened, finally all the stages came together and the leg kick (or lack of) just felt right. I was still concentrating on trying to fit each piece of the puzzle together but after a while I felt myself relaxing into it and it felt good. Read more “This is not for me……or so I thought!”
