DESCRIPTION: • Would you like to swim a mile or more and feel energised, not exhausted, when you finish? • Would you like to swim more confidently in open water? • Would you like to make swimming the best part of your triathlon?

Our Effortless Endurance workshop will help you to achieve your goals.

WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR? • Long-time swimmers who find themselves stuck on a plateau or who are losing motivation • New swimmers (able to swim at least 50 metres) who want to develop great habits • Self-coached swimmers who would like expert assessment and advice • Triathletes looking to improve swim times and use less energy • Open water swimmers looking to make their stroke more efficient

WHAT HAPPENS AT AN EFFORTLESS ENDURANCE WORKSHOP? This workshop includes both pool and classroom sessions and will give you the tools you need to be a more efficient swimmer. The Swimmer to Coach ratio will be a maximum of 6:1, allowing individualized instruction and feedback throughout the day. Classroom sessions include video analysis.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?   The three foundation skills of effortless swimming:

Balance and stability Become 'weightless' by learning to cooperate with gravity instead of fighting it.  Learning balance transforms struggle into smoothness and calms churning legs. It also brings the body control, and the mental focus necessary to learn every skill that follows.

Streamlining Learn to move through water, rather than move it around, by shaping your body to be longer, better aligned, more hydrodynamic; learn to swim using techniques that minimise waves and turbulence.  Sleek and slippery swimming means that you travel further and more easily on each stroke.

Whole body propulsion Replace churning with effortless power by connecting arm and leg actions to rhythmic, relaxed weight-shifts initiated in the core.  Instead of generating muscular force you’ll direct available forces of body mass and gravity.

WHAT WILL YOU TAKE AWAY? The tools to work on a transformed freestyle stroke • The knowledge to begin a path of continuous improvement • And you’ll enjoy swimming as never before.  The more you enjoy it, the more you’ll practice and the more you’ll improve.
