Cheesy Friday

A little fun on the blog this week, we'd like you to tell us your favourite motivational slogans - the cheesier the better! As a coach on the pool deck it's often difficult to avoid applying a bit of cheese when you're trying to motivate a group or individual. My personal favourite is:

"If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got!"

Here are some more below but what are your favourites?

"No-one ever excused his way to success"

"Damned if you do, bored if you don't"

"There's always free cheese in the mouse trap, but the mice there ain't happy"

"The only difference between a rut and a grave is their dimensions"

"Of course it's hard. It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great"

To submit yours, simply reply to this email or send an email to

We'll collate your replies, pick the best ones and post them out on Monday to cheer you up on your return to work! Include your name if you'd like to be credited for your submission.

By the way: We occasionally get asked about our spelling. Swim Smooth is an Anglo-Australian company so we use British English spellings, we hope you catch our gist!

If swimming makes you sore muscles congratulations, do not stop, "after the pain and no more pain."

if you get tired in the skills that few seconds, you have many hours to rest and recover.
