Meet The Team
(Enjoy2train Trainers: Nicky, Les)
I am a swimming instructor, Lifeguard and Lifeguard trainer and First Aid trainer.
I started as a rookie in my local Lifeguard Club when I was 14 years old completing both personal survival awards and lifesaving 1,2, and 3 awards and worked my way up to Junior Captain of the Club which gave me the opportunity to take training sessions for members of the club.
I then went on took take my Pool bronze medallion award of merit, to then completing my National Pool Lifeguard Qualification and have never looked back.
As a Leisure Student I spent many summers working part time as a Lifeguard and Swimming Instructor in Summer Schools in various locations in the UK.
Once graduating college I entered fulltime employment in the Leisure Industry and have worked in a wide-range of Leisure facilities, swimming Clubs and large well known 5 star hotel chains in London and Brighton, and locally here in Jersey ever since.

(Nicky with Jo)
Jo is our Office Administrator for both Enjoy2train and Enjoy2swim. Jo has been part of Enjoy2swim since our Mayfair days where I taught both her boys to swim. She is an enormous support and good friend to me and I was delighted when she took the reins as Administrator in 2014.
Jo brings with her a background in administration, in both finance and the charitable sector. Whilst Nicky is the public face of Enjoy2train Jo is the person behind the scenes who ensures that everything runs smoothly.
When you make initial contact with us Jo will be delighted to guide you through our easy booking system and is your first port of call for any further queries you may have regarding your bookings.
Jo is also the founder of Philip’s Footprints (www.philipsfootprints.org) following her own experience of the full term loss of her second son Philip. Her charity not only supports parents following the loss of their baby, but also invests in pregnancy via professional training and antenatal equipment to reduce the numbers of stillbirths and premature births and complications at birth.
It is my pleasure to support both Jo and Philip’s Footprints whenever I can
