ABOUT THE COACH: A great opportunity to work with TI Master Coach Teresa Seibel  (click on Teresa's name to see her bio) providing swiming for every person regardless of your athletic ability, age, shape or size. All Total Immersion coaches share a passion for swimming. We are each on our own Kaizen path (continuous improvement) and want to guide you along YOUR Kaizen path. We educate you on the physics of swimming so that you learn to become your own best coach. 

DESCRIPTIONThis clinic is appropriate for any ability level with reasonable comfort in the water.

Level 1.0    Effortless Endurance – The Total Immersion foundation with drills and skills to correct all of the stroke faults and habits that keep athletes from swimming smoothly without effort. We’ll get an in-depth progression towards a stroke that offers continuing possibilities for improvement, and move through skill work to finish the day finding efficient, effortless stroke segments.

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 in 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 are 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.

4. Breathe 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.

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