Improve the swimming efficiency of the participants, as well as your strategies to face your long distance open water swimming events or triathlon races.
Would you like to be able to swim a mile or more with easy grace, enjoy every stroke and feel energized, not exhausted, when you finish? Would you like to make swimming the best part of triathlon or swim confidently in open water? Our swimming camps will help you achieve those goals; give you a stroke you’ll be proud of and a satisfying way to enjoy great health.
Who should come to this camp?
WHY DO YOU NEED THIS CAMP?
Human swimmers are energy-wasting machines: typically, we convert only 3% of energy into forward motion. (Dolphins convert 80% and even elite swimmers like Michael Phelps convert only 9%!) Dolphins move through water, humans move water around. The fastest, smartest way to increase your endurance or speed is to reduce energy waste.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
During the camps you’ll learn the three foundation skills of effortless distance swimming:
BALANCE AND STABILITY
Become ‘weightless’ by learning to cooperate with gravity instead of fighting it. Learning balance transforms struggle into smoothness and calms churning legs. It also brings the body control and mental calm necessary to learn every skill that follows.
Learn to move through water, rather than move it around, by:
WHOLE BODY PROPULSION
Replace churning with effortless power by connecting arm and leg actions to rhythmic, relaxed weight shifts initiated in the core. Instead of generating muscular force you’ll direct ‘available’ forces of body mass and gravity.
