Swim Magazine

Issue 1

Welcome to Swim, the brand new lifestyle magazine for everybody who loves swimming. Whether you’re a wild swimmer or a pool swimmer, a deep diver or an artistic swimmer, if it’s cold water you love or thermal springs, there’s something for you in our pages.

We kick off with an interview with Kate Rew, the founder of the Outdoor Swimming Society, who loves her own swimming experiences so much she wants everybody to experience the pure joy of taking a dip under open skies. Channel and ice swimmer Colin Hill tells us about the Winter Swimming World Championships, which took place in sub-zero temperatures in Slovenia’s Lake Bled, and we meet Bill May and Giorgio Minisini, two male artistic swimmers who successfully campaigned for men to be allowed to compete in the sport at Olympic level.

If you want tips and tricks to boost your skill set, get the right gear and generally improve your swimming, look no further: from pre-swimming nutrition to the pinnacle of home training pools, from boosting your breaststroke to bilateral breathing and from physical to mental first aid, you’ll find articles and information in these pages – plus so much more.

So take the plunge, dive in with us and let’s immerse ourselves in the first and very best lifestyle magazine for swimmers.
