International Women’s Day 2022

We are incredibly proud not only to be a female-founded company, but also one that employs a large number of amazing women across every department within GetSetGo!

This International Women’s Day we wanted to acknowledge and celebrate some of these wonderful women by shining the spotlight on them and telling you a little more about them and what makes them such an important part of our club.

 

Claire, Co-Founder

our CEO

Claire originally hails from Manchester and has worked in the swim industry for more than 20 years. Prior to launching GetSetGo! she built Swimming Rocks into a successful, multi-site swim school here in London.

She has two little ones herself – Sam & Eva – and one of the reasons she was so passionate about launching GetSetGo! was a result of her experience of taking them to expensive children’s classes and ending up sat on dirty church, village halls and pub floors. Thankfully, our club has helped put an end to all that!

DID YOU KNOW? Claire is an RFU qualified U7s rugby coach and also holds a world record having taken part in the world’s biggest tap dance!

 

Alina, Co-Founder

our

Alina is a mum of two with a passion for sports and exercise, not to mention a huge amount of experience at management and board level across the leisure industry.

You might think launching a business during a pandemic might be a sufficient challenge for most people, but Alina still found the time to have her second child just as GetSetGo! was preparing to launch at the end of 2020 and baby Halle (along with big brother Hugo) has been a regular visitor to the club ever since.

DID YOU KNOW? Alina has competed for Wales in both hockey AND triple jump! She also carried the Rugby World Cup trophy and ran a leg of the trophy’s tour around Wales in 1999 ahead of the tournament.

Huda, Experience Hero

Experience Hero

Huda has brought a wealth of experience to the club, firstly as one of our Receptionists and now as our brilliant Experience Hero! Her personable, efficient and ever-cheery demeanour makes her a key member of the team.

Any questions about the club? She’s always at the end of the phone to answer any queries or questions and her natural flare makes every tour and show around exciting!

Michaela, Head of Parties

DID YOU KNOW? When she’s not busy jazzing up your little one’s birthday party, Michaela is also an actress & writer who recently performed her own piece of work at a theatre in London.

 

Odna, Head of Food & Beverage

Odna has been a breath of fresh air since she took over the running of our café last year. One of two Mongolians here at GetSetGo! Putney, Odna’s friendly yet no-nonsense approach has made her an incredibly popular member of the team and she has a fantastic sense of humour.
