In this course we will work on improving your body position. Since the density of water is almost 800 times the density of air, we want to minimise our resistance in the water. Therefore, a high and horizontal body line is crucial for efficient and fast swimming. You want your head, hips, legs and feet to be in one line.
What to expect?
This course is 4 weeks with a total of 8 workouts, 2 each week. We will focus on the body position by using specific drills to improve this. We will work on your streamlining, body rotation, and body position.
How does it work?
Each week you follow 2 instruction videos with technique exercises that will help you improve your body position so you stay high and horizontal in the water. In the first week we start with the basics, which is the streamline. This is followed by a week where we focus on body rotation. In the third week we focus on purely the body positioning in the water. In the final week we put it all together, working on streamlining and rotation while maintaining a high and horizontal position in the water.
After watching an instruction video you can practice this exercise in a pool near you. When you have completed the exercise you can finish your swim with a body conditioning workout that is included in every step. This way you improve your technique, endurance and strength all in one workout.
Training Equipment: We advise you to use the following training equipment: a kick board and pull buoy (both floating devices), a snorkel and fins.

I started with SwimGym coaching as a complete novice. To be honest, I barely floated. Within weeks my skills improved and within months I made my way into the mid-level and ultimately to the pro’s. The perfect combination of technique training and a total body workout.
I started with SwimGym training courses after I got my swimming diploma, so I was a real novice. In a year and a half, I have advanced to the mid-level, completed a 1500m open water race and realised my dream of learning how to kitesurf, all thanks to the swimming foundation laid by SwimGym.
