THE SWIM: Develop an awesome swim
Swimming is a little different to the bike and run. You need to work with the water, not against it!
Being the first part of the triathlon, its important to get off to a good start.
You'll probably hear people saying "...you can't win a triathlon in the swim, but you can lose it!"
Swimming is a little different from the bike and run as you need to work with the water and not against it!
We develop your swimming ability in the following way:
We will take a good look at your swim stroke and get you more efficient in the water
Next we'll set your swim training zones and get you developing your swimming diesel engine. Swimming is a little different than the other This effectively means a good strong base of endurance
We then work on your open water skills. Simple things like the ability to swim straight can save you a lot of time. Also, learning to be confident around other swimmers is SO important.
I've helped all abilities of swimmers, from those aiming to complete their first triathlon swim, to those wanting to be out of the water with the lead pack.
Swim Video Analysis Session
The video analysis session typically takes around 75 mins.
It starts with a chat about your swim history and what you want to achieve from the session.
We then record your swimming from 4 key angles, then on poolside we'll have a look at whats going on.
We then jump back in the pool and practice 2 maybe 3 key drills for you to work on in your own time to best improve your swimming.
Take a look at the video, for a 60 second highlight of the session...
