DESCRIPTION: This clinic is appropriate for any
ability level with a reasonable level of comfort in the water. We often have newer swimmers and veteran
triathletes learning at the same time to improve their speed and
efficiency, and the TI foundation allows ALL swimmers to progress together. Our coaches are
some of the most active Total Immersion Directors who have worked with athletes
from complete beginner to professional triathlete. This workshop includes
expert instruction, individualized feedback and detailed video analysis. It is
recommended for people who can swim at least 50 m or more of crawl stroke who
have studied TI skills previously with DVDs, books or had lessons from a TI
LEVEL 1 - 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. You'll learn:
1. Cooperate with Gravity - Most swimmers fight gravity trying to stay on top of the water.
We teach you to find your natural equilibrium by sinking into weightlessness.
Learning to relax into the water breaks the “survival- stroking” cycle, and
frees your arms and legs for their best use. Besides, gravity is a powerful
natural force; doesn’t it make more sense to use it than fight it?
2. Take the Path of Least Resistance - Once you understand that you must swim through the water — and
mindful that water is almost 800 times denser than air — it’s logical to focus
more on how well you streamline than how you pull and kick. We’ll teach you to
shape yourself to cut through the water like a torpedo by alternating a
right-side-streamline with a left-side-streamline. Each stroke will move you
farther and faster with less effort.
3. Swim with your body - Traditional thinking about swimming treats the body as having an “arms department” that pulls you forward and a “legs department” that pushes you forward. In Fishlike Freestyle, you swim with your whole body, instead of your arms and legs. We’ll teach you to propel with a simple 2-beat kick, relaxed and rhythmic weight shifts, rather than arm-and-leg churning.
easy - We’ll also
teach you about breathing easily as you swim. No more breathlessness, no
worries about choking. The air is free, take all you need.
Who will benefit from this
• New swimmers who want to develop great habits (but can swim 50m front crawl unaided)
• Swimmers who have struggled to improve.
• Self-coached swimmers who would like expert assessment and advice.
• Long-time swimmers who find themselves stuck on a plateau or who have lost motivation.
• Open Water swimmers looking to make their stroke more efficient.

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.
