DESCRIPTION: Learn the Total Immersion stroke mechanics that have transformed thousands with our Effortless Endurance class. With hands on help in the water and multiple video recordings/review, and a guaranteed student to coach ratio of no more than 5 to 1, you’ll receive the best in personalized instruction. The class is led by 21-year TI veteran coach Gary Fahey.
STAFF: Master Coach Gary Fahey, an 18-year TI veteran, has led over 150 workshops across the US and internationally. Coach Fahey teaches swimming full time in Fort Lauderdale, FL through Stroke Doctor Swimming, providing lessons, clinics and year-round training opportunities for recreational and competitive swimmers. His athletes include nationally ranked age group swimmers, high school all-Americans and sprint to ultra-distance triathletes.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN: We set 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 during the class, guaranteeing you walk out a better, smarter swimmer. We also teach you how to effectively self-coach, from managing focal points to writing successful practices. You’ll learn how to make every trip to the pool an opportunity to refine your skills and swim with sustainable efficiency.
THE POWER OF VIDEO: We’ll shoot three rounds of video to diagnose your key issues, monitor your progress through each water session and demonstrate clear, unequivocal improvement over the course of our day. That includes above and below the surface footage from multiple angles, expertly analyzed and notated in the classroom. All files are shared via DropBox.
