I’ll be in the US this April running freestyle clinics. These clinics have been running for a couple of years in Australia. They’ve been really popular because of the results that swimmers and triathletes are getting. In these clinics, you’re filmed underwater and above the water and then given detailed analysis of your stroke to find areas you can improve and find speed. It’s followed by a pool session where we correct what we find in the filming to help you become a faster more efficient swimmer.

With swimming there are a lot to think about – your head position, body position, recovery, entry, catch and pull. There’s a lot of things that go into it. We simplify it. If you are a triathlete or a swimmer who is frustrated at your swimming not improving, then this clinic is a good fit for you.

If you’d like to book in for a clinic in the US click here. Note: There’s only limited spots available. See you there!
