Swimming 1-2-1 Technique Analysis

  • Swimming is the Achilles heel for many triathletes and can be an endless source of frustration despite numerous hours in the pool.
  • Advice can be contradictory with people often spending considerable time working on various aspects of their stroke without understanding the fundamental principles of effective swimming technique.
  • We can provide 1-2-1 technique video analysis to focus on the fundamental causes of ineffective stroke. Faults are highlighted so the necessary corrections can be introduced to improve technique and efficiency.
  • As well as being multiple Kona finishers our swim coaches are highly experienced club coaches. If your swimming is letting you down we can help.
