Effortless Swimming – Freestyle Stroke Correction Clinics

A 3.5-hour freestyle stroke correction clinic with underwater filming and analysis that helps swimmers and triathletes improve their technique and efficiency by using the latest stroke development techniques. Live filming and analysis means you get to work on specific aspects of your stroke with regular feedback throughout the clinic. All clinics are run by specifically trained Effortless Swimming coaches who have competed or coached at a National or International level and have experience working with all levels of swimmers from beginner to elite.

What you will learn
  • The fundamentals of fast and efficient freestyle so you have a clear understanding of how the stroke works and exactly what is slowing you down and how to improve
  • The ideal body position for minimal drag and the key aspects of the stroke that help you achieve it and how to implement your new stroke changes into daily training even if you’re training on your own or with a squad.
  • Why most swimmers struggle to find the ‘elusive’ catch and our step-by-step progression to help you significantly improve the most important part of freestyle (even if you’ve never been taught before).

I learnt to swim when I was five or six years old. Since then the sum total of my swimming ability was to swim back to the side of the pool after jumping in the water. I had a single lesson after Christmas at the local pool because I want to do a triathlon next year. Since then I have been at the pool at least three time per week. When I started training I could not do one lap of the 25m. I managed to bring the distance up to 20 laps of the 50m, but EVERY single lap for the past 10 weeks has been completely exhausting. I have needed to rest for several minutes after each 50m. This has been very frustrating because I am quite fit otherwise and train every day at varying levels of intensity in other disciplines (running, cycling, martial arts, boxing). Until I did the Effortless Swimming clinic last weekend (with Mitch in Sydney) I could simply not put two laps together without stopping half way down the pool in the second lap. By the end of the clinic I could do a lap without being totally fatigued. Swimming was easier and faster (but felt slower and more relaxed). Today I went back into the water and did 200m without a break - unbelievable. Last week I honestly could not imagine doing this. Mitch quickly identified the major areas I needed to give attention and provided clear guidance and solutions. The results were immediate. I now know what to focus on and why every lap was previously a "fight with the water" (as Mitch commented). I could not recommend this clinic highly enough. The chances are the local swim teacher does not possess the knowledge the guys from Effortless Swimming are able to clearly convey. Brilliant!!!
