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. 

+ More
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).
What you will get
  • Comprehensive ‘before and after’ video analysis from multiple angles above and below the water. All of your videos and recorded analysis from the day will be sent to you via the Skillest app (http://effortlessswimming.com/skillest) to keep and watch over whenever you like.

Well done - can't rate Effortless program and their coach Mitch highly enough.

This was interesting, however I don't think I got the value expected for the price tag out of it. I cannot see that the changes improve either speed or distance immediately. It would have been fantastic to record a change in speed for example. I'd say ongoing squad training and the stroke advice I get there is more beneficial at the amateur, average level of swimming I'm at. Probably awesome for already fast pool swimmers though! The coach was really nice, had great knowledge to share and made the session fun.

Thanks for attending the clinic Lisa. We recommend 8-10 weeks of  practising what we teach in the clinic to see the true results. Because  you’re changing habits and developing new motor patterns the first 4–6 weeks after a clinic you can expect the stroke to feel uncomfortable. Some swimmers will get faster right away, some will get slower until the muscle memory has developed and you’ve gained the strength in the different muscle groups.

The patience and knowledge of the trainer, and his ability to highlight positives while showing areas for improvement was very helpful.
