Whether you are looking to refine your swim mechanics, or you are training for a specific event, our coaches understand what it takes to improve in the water. We are passionate about great swimming technique, and we understand how to break down the stroke so that we can systematically address and fix each of your limiters. We prescribe workouts that both improve these specific limiters and build your general fitness. Swimming is a technique driven sport and working with a qualified coach is paramount to getting faster and more comfortable in the water.
We will get to know each new athlete through an athlete questionnaire, initial conversations, and analysis of past training and racing data.
SEASON PLANNING & DAILY WORKOUT SCHEDULING
A long term periodization plan will be shared with each athlete. It will provide the athlete with information on how we intend to build fitness throughout the season. It outlines volume and intensity benchmarks for each week in a cycle. We will then create daily workouts that satisfy our goals for each week, and we will upload those workouts into each athlete's Training Peaks account.
MOBILITY, FLEXIBILITY AND STRENGTH
Keeping each athlete injury-free is always a priority. In addition to endurance building workouts, our coaches are also able to prescribe sessions that increase mobility and flexibility, as well as building sport specific strength.
UNLIMITED COMMUNICATION & RESCHEDULING
There are no restrictions placed on the amount of communication, or type of communication, that an athlete may have with his/her coach. We let our clients dictate what communication style works best for them. Daily workouts and/or season plans can be changed at any time at the athlete's request.
TRAINING & RACING FEEDBACK
Feedback is given on any training session where instruction and/or encouragement is warranted, or when the athlete asks a question in their workout comments. Each race effort is also analyzed by the coach. Race feedback typically comes in the form of an email response, a voice recording, or a phone conversation.
Athletes are encouraged to send their coach underwater video for analysis. Our coaches can provide a detailed analysis of an athlete's stroke and give specific insight on how an athlete's mechanics can improve.
This one-time payment is due before the athlete's start date. It covers much of the initial work needed to get a new athlete started with coaching. This includes initial phone conversations, season planning, athlete testing, and more.
A 30-day notice is required to terminate all services. Any balance outstanding through the date of termination will be owed.
