DESCRIPTION: With Smart Speed transform your freestyle. Develop a stroke that is faster, easier, and more efficient for the long haul. Swim faster with smarter choices, instead of greater effort. You'll learn:

1. Swimming ‘Gears’, Learn your own best swimming gears . . . like those on a bicycle.  Change speeds simply by adding a stroke to your count. Discover your best range of 3 stroke counts for this skill, and practice using them with expert guidance. 


2. The Magic of a Tempo Trainer is an improvement-minded swimmer’s best friend. Use it to make striking gains in efficiency--then convert that efficiency into more speed. Sometimes in 15 minutes or less and with an ease that will surprise you.

 

3. The Math of Speed The equation Stroke Length x Stroke Rate (SL x SR) is the only exact and guaranteed predictor of how fast you’ll swim. Learn simple exercises and formulas for creating and solving speed problems. Also learn the combination of SPL+Tempo that precisely matches your present level of skill and fitness.

Our coaches are some of the most active Total Immersion Directors and have worked
with athletes from complete beginner to professional triathlete.

PREREQUISITES: This workshop is appropriate for intermediate to advanced swimmers that display good balance and streamline qualities during front crawl.  Participants must be able to swim 400 meters comfortably.
