The day comprises four hours pool time with exclusive use of the swimming pool, split into two sessions plus three hours presentation of swim theory with video analysis on a 65" HD TV. We will also send you links to full detailed video analysis with professional TV sports-style on screen graphic annotations and commentary that you can review after the event.
The workshop includes expert instruction, individualised feedback and detailed video analysis. It is recommended for people who can swim at least 50m or more of crawl stroke or who have studied TI skills previously with DVDs, books or lessons. During the day you will develop your understanding of front crawl and the skills you need to acquire to become a much more efficient swimmer.
Who will benefit from this workshop?
- Long time swimmers who are stuck on a plateau or need motivation.
- New swimmers who want to develop really good habits.
- Self-coached swimmers who want expert assessment and advice.
- Triathletes looking to improve their stroke, reduce their swim times and save energy.
- Open Water swimmers looking to make their stroke more efficient.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN?
When swimming the best way to increase your endurance or speed is to reduce energy waste. During the workshop you'll develop the three foundation skills of effortless swimming:
BALANCE AND STABILITY
Become weightless and relaxed in the water
Learn to push forwards through water by streamlining your body.
WHOLE BODY PROPULSION
Propel yourself forwards though the water using your core and channelling energy forwards using natural weight shifts.
