DESCRIPTION: Effortless Endurance (Day 1 - Level 1) – 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.

Smart Speed (Day 2 – Level 2) 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.
