Long Barn Cottages Endless Pool - If you have never seen or heard of Endless pools, these are machines that generate a controllable current that you can swim against. It is literally like swimming upstream into a smooth river current. Just a bit warmer though!
The advantage of training in an Endless Pool is that the coach can stay with you all the time, observing minute details that can help you swim more efficiently. It also makes Video analysis much easier.

For less confident swimmers, you are never out of your depth or too far from the side.

She is especially proud of the fact that her 800 & 1500m records are faster than their male equivalents! As far as we know Cassie is the only British female swimmer to hold that distinction!
