TI members in Belgium??
 
Hi,

the TI technique fascinates me a lot. But for me it seems a long way to master the technique without a TI coach or a TI training buddy. So hopefully there is someone
in my region. I live at the Belgium coast.

another TI in belgium
 
Hi willem,

I live in the region of Ittre (40 km south of brussels..).. so that would be a little bit far...

It looks like , there isn't a lot of TI students in belgium yet.. but that's just a matter of time ;-)...

Hi Greg,

it's a pity you're living quite far. Indeed, TI seems not very popular in Belgium!
Hope this will change!

Have fun with the TI!

What's the primary language spoken there? One thing that could increase the spread of TI in Belgium is if one or more of our upcoming ebooks are translated into that language.

languages in belgium
 
Hi Terry,

The country is basically divided in three different languages (Dutch in the North part, French in the South part and German in a little part (5% of the territory) ), why make things simple when they can be complicated ;-),but most people have an acceptable level in English as well...

I personnaly could buy your books in english on amazon.fr.

PS : Thanks for TI ;-)

@Willem : enjoy your TI workshop in UK !

Belgium?
 
One year later...

I am totally into TI (freestyle; self-taught untill now). Are there more Belgian TI people now? (This thread has 700+ views, so where are you?)

Afspreken in Antwerpen?
 
Hi Eyal81,

Sorry dat ik je bericht nu pas zie. De laatste tijd heb ik het ontzettend druk op m'n werk. (Daar zou na Nieuwjaar wat verandering in moeten komen.)

Ikzelf woon in Deurne (Antwerpen), en heb concrete plannen om zelf TI-teacher te worden. Ik ben nog aan het overleggen en afwegen of ik hiervoor naar de VS of naar Spanje zou gaan.

Misschien kunnen we eens afspreken om samen te gaan zwemmen. Dan kunnen we elkaar alvast tips geven. Stuur gerust een e-mail.

TI swimcourse in Belgium
 
Op zaterdag en zondag 3 en 4 december geeft Fiona Laughlin, TI-coach en dochter van TI-oprichter Terry Laughlin, een Total Immersion zwemworkshop. De zwemworkshop gaat door in Lier.
Door het beperkt aantal plaatsen is een individuele begeleiding gegarandeerd. De zwemworkshop staat dan ook open voor beginners en gevorderden. De enige voorwaarde is dat je bereid bent kritisch je eigen zwemstijl te bekijken. Dat laatste is ook letterlijk te nemen: dankzij videoanalyse krijg je zicht op je eigen zwemstijl, zowel vóór als na de workshop. Die analyse krijg je achteraf mee, waardoor je achteraf heel concreet aan je verbeterpunten kan werken.
“The Total Immersion (TI) approach to swimming uses peaceful, focused practice and to improve efficiency and speed at the lowest energy cost – ideal for triathlon.” Ingrid Loos Miller

Good to know: Van onze krachtinspanning tijdens het zwemmen, draagt maximaal 5% bij aan onze voortstuwing. De rest van onze energie gaat verloren in het water. Wat snellere zwemmers voorhebben op tragere zwemmers, is niet zozeer meer kracht, maar allereerst een betere stroomlijning. Het goede nieuws is, stroomlijning kan je leren. Het is de deur naar sneller zwemmen.

Hey Willem,

zwem je soms in Oostende?

Ik zwem er regelmatig en heb pas vandaag TI ontdekt.

sportieve groeten

workshop succes
 
De eerste Belgische TI-workshop in Lier was een succes, dankzij coach Fiona Laughlin en de deelnemers. Onze progressie was immens.
Ik hou jullie op de hoogte van verdere TI-events in de Benelux. Geïnteresseerden kunnen me altijd contacteren.

Met een vriendelijke groet,
Stijn

TI Coach Fiona Laughlin (Terry Laughlin's daughter) coming to Europe Fall 2013
 
Hello TI swimmers of Belgium!
I wanted to let you know that I will be coming to London in September and then after the end of September would like to set up some TI workshops in Europe to run. Please let me know if you would like to coordinate that.
A little about me, I started coaching with my father TI founder Terry Laughlin in 1989 so I am the #1 most experienced TI coach in the world other than Terry and have trained many of the TI coaches who exist in the world today. When not teaching Total Immersion I am an artist and filmmaker and love to travel to see and engage in cultural events. I would love to meet and get to know more TI swimmers in Europe and specifically in Belgium. If you would like to contact me about setting something up please email me at fionalaughlin@gmail.com as I do not check the forums very often. Hope to see you soon!

CoachFiona 08-12-2013 10:24 PM

Hi Sabine! How are you?
