This workshop is a follow up of the Total Immersion Effortless Endurance workshop and can only be attended if you have previously attended an Effortless Endurance workshop or indeed any other weekend workshop with Total Immersion in the past. This is the workshop that will teach you how to turn your foundation skills into speed using different combinations of stroke counting, stroke rate and time. It will change your swim practice forever.

There are 4 primary objectives that will be addressed during this workshop. 

1.   Identify opportunities in efficiency on your stroke

2.   Promote solutions for propulsion and kick timing that will increase speed and flow

3.   Learn more focal points and advanced tempo training use for practice and racing

4.   Get a detailed analysis of your stroke and prescription for improvement based on rhythm, propulsion, and tempo work.

Things to Bring

For the classroom: Pad and pen for note taking. For the pool: an extra pair of goggles – just in case, towel(s) water bottle and a snacks. Water is cool so a rash guard or wetsuit is allowed.

We recommend that male students wear a Speedo-type brief or close-fitting triathlon swim shorts, rather than loose-fitting swim trunks, which can make balance even more of a challenge.
