When learning to swim, you need to know how to float. To do that it’s important to understand how your body sits in water. If you hold your breath the air will be concentrated in your chest so your upper body rises and your legs sink. When swimming in open water there are no lane ropes or black lines running along the bottom to demarcate where you can and can’t swim so learning how to sight is a key skill if you want to avoid veering off course! Drilling down into specific areas of your stroke with video analysis is a fantastic investment to make and provides immediate feedback on faults and stroke weaknesses. Whatever your ability, ambition or swimming background there is something here for you.
Advanced Video Analysis and Stroke Correction
For the first half of the session we film you from above and below the water using a high definition camera. Back on poolside we use sophisticated video analysis tools to look at your stroke from different angles and show you ways in which you can become a more efficient swimmer. The second half of the session is spent in the pool practising drills that are specific to your stroke correction needs. The whole session is recorded for you to take away.
introduction to cold water dipping & open water skills
Cold water dipping has surged in interest following reports of myriad health benefits that include improvements in upper respiratory conditions and remarkable post op recoveries.
It was during and after lockdown that a lot of people took to wild swimming and many have continued to swim outdoors favouring the open spaces over the confines of an indoor pool.
Knowing what to wear, how to prepare and most importantly how to keep yourself and others safe will make your outdoor swim adventures all the more enjoyable.
