SMART SPEED

Wednesday, April 15 and Wednesday, April 22, 2020 6:15pm-10pm

Swim smarter and save energy!  Don’t chase speed, let speed come to you.

This program includes both pool and classroom sessions and will give you the tools you need to be a more efficient swimmer.

Effectively train for speed and endurance without compromising technique. We will explore skill sets in two beat kick, whole body propulsion, recovery, and catch.  We’ll teach you how to create your own speed algorithm.

Swim faster with smarter choices, instead of greater effort. You’ll learn:

1. Swimming ‘Gears’, Learn your own best swimming gears . . . like those on a bicycle.  Change speeds simply by adding a stroke to your count. Discover your best range of 3 stroke counts for this skill, and practice using them with expert guidance.

2. The Magic of Tempo A Tempo Trainer is an improvement-minded swimmer’s best friend. Use it to make striking gains in efficiency–then convert that efficiency into more speed. Sometimes in 15 minutes or less and with an ease that will surprise you.

3. The Math of Speed The equation Stroke Length x Stroke Rate (SL x SR) is the only exact and guaranteed predictor of how fast you’ll swim. Learn simple exercises and formulas for creating and solving speed problems. Also learn the combination of SPL+Tempo that precisely matches your present level of skill and fitness.

Benefit from our hands-on instructional techniques, low student: coach ratio, and generous underwater videotaping.
