Tamzin Outhwaite Gets ’Swim Fit’ With Speedo


Amazing before and after pictures reveal Tamzin’s toned post-baby body following six-week Swim Fit programme

his week Speedo released amazing before and after pictures of actress and mum, Tamzin Outhwaite, after she completed a six-week Swim Fit training programme under the guidance of former Olympic swimmer and Speedo ambassador, Karen Pickering.

Having recently had her second baby, Tamzin, 42, undertook Speedo’s swimming challenge after she became disillusioned with the ‘boring’ gym but wanted to tone-up her post baby body and improve her general fitness levels.

Tamzin commented: “I’ve always been quite active, but after my second child, I didn’t feel comfortable sweating it out in the gym. I love swimming on holiday but never saw it as a way of keeping fit so was keen to find out about swimming for fitness. Swimming offers a full-body workout, whilst also giving me a lovely bit of ‘me time’. I’m so happy with the results; I’ve found something that I love doing and I feel great afterwards.”

Tamzin followed a bespoke six-week Swim Fit programme put together for her by former Olympic swimmer and Speedo Ambassador, Karen Pickering. Swimming twice a week for 45 minutes each time, the programme incorporated aerobic fitness drills and techniques using Speedo Power Paddles and Hydro Discs to build-up Tamzin’s fitness levels and stamina. To help create tone and muscle definition, Tamzin undertook core strength and leg exercises supported with Speedo Kick Boards and Pullbuoys.

Karen commented: “There is a big misconception that swimming is boring and not that effective. When done properly, swimming can be one of the best sports for burning calories, building strength and muscle tone. It doesn’t have to be about monotonous lengths up and down the pool; you can mix it up with different techniques and equipment to keep things varied and target problem areas. It’s also great for new mums like Tamzin as the buoyancy in the water really supports the body.”

Tamzin’s before and after images speak for themselves, showing a real change in the tone and definition of her body.

Sally Polak, Marketing Manager for Speedo UK commented: “We’re passionate about making swimming both effective and fun. It’s great to see how our Swim Fitness range has helped Tamzin achieve her fitness goals. She’s shown what can be achieved in just six weeks – imagine what could happen given a little longer!”
