DESCRIPTION: Effortless Endurance Learn the core TI stroke mechanics that have transformed thousands. Effortless Endurance sets the table for efficient swimming by developing proper alignment and balance in the water. This builds a reliable foundation upon which we add core rotation, proper limb orientation/movements, and breathing skills. Our carefully planned learning sequences ensure you’ll make near-instant progress. In only one day we guarantee you’ll walk out a better, smarter swimmer. As with all of our courses, the coaches are in the water with you providing hands on help and video feedback.

DESCRIPTION: Smart Speed Smart Speed refines the mechanics learned on Saturday with clear practice strategies to consolidate the various stroke components into effective whole stroke swimming. Learn to structure your pool sessions and build efficiency-reinforcing focal points into every lap, making every practice an investment in skill acquisition, endurance and speed. We’ll dive into the metrics of tempo and stroke length to teach you how to generate and sustain velocity. Smart Speed is the perfect follow up to Effortless Endurance. It is strongly recommended students attend both classes in the same weekend.

WHAT TO BRING:
FOR THE CLASSROOM: Device for note taking. All video files shot during the class will be uploaded to DropBox and available to view/download. Pack a lunch for Saturday. Lunch will be provided on Sunday unless otherwise indicated. There are drink machines available at the facility but no nearby food options.

FOR THE POOL: This is an indoor pool. 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. ‘Kicking challenged’ swimmers may find fins helpful in achieving easy movement during the first water session. Please have at least one swimsuit, towel, goggles and swim cap (helpful, not mandatory.) If you own a Finis Tempo Trainer, please bring it.

DIRECTIONS: For maps/detailed directions please enter the following address into your vehicle’s navigation system: 3001 Mercer University Dr, Atlanta, GA 30341. We can also email you a campus map to help you locate the pool.
