Leon Fryer

Hi there, I’m Leon and I am one of the founding coaches of Swimyourswim (SYS).  I have been swimming in open water for as long as I care to remember! It is my passion to see as many people as possible swimming safely in open water.  In recent months I have completed an End-2-End swim of Coniston & Windermere in the Lake District, swam across the Solent, the river Humber and taken part in Chill Swim events.  My hardest swim in this last year, and the swim I am most proud of is completing an Ice Mile in November 2013.  Swimming one mile in Treeton Dyke, at a temperature of 3.8ºC, I became the 64th member of the International Ice Swimming Association.
