In this course we will work on reducing resistance and improve your feel for the water. Top level swimmers are able to minimise their resistance and maximise their propulsion. With propulsion we mean your drive and push forward. This starts with the catch, then to the pull-through to a strong push.
What to expect?
This course is 5 weeks with a total of 10 workouts, 2 each week. We will work on being as efficient as possible, by using specific drills to improve this. We will work on your feel for the water and each component of the pull-through (catch, pull and push-out).
How does it work?
Each week you follow 2 instruction videos with technique exercises that will help you swim freestyle more efficiently. You start with increasing your feel for the water with sculling exercises. Thereafter, we work on each element of the pull-through – the catch, pull and push-out. In the final week we combine these elements.
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.
