A picture paints a thousand words…
We use a high quality HD underwater camera to film you from a range of different angles above and below the water, leaving no stone unturned! Video analysis is a superb way to identify key areas to improve your stroke efficiency and help you to see how you need to improve.
Seeing yourself swimming from a range of different angles on a big screen and then having your stroke constructively critiqued by us is a liberating experience. We’ll identify the great elements of your stroke already there and the stroke faults which are holding you back. We’ll show you videos of the Swim Smooth drills and coach them to you in the subsequent pool stroke correction session so you can really improve your swimming.
You will come away from a clinic with a clear understanding of your current stroke, with a hard copy of our detailed video analysis. We’ll make some instant improvements on the day and you’ll be amazed how much easier swimming can really feel! You’ll understand the changes you need to make to improve your swimming going forwards as well as we give you a clear plan to develop your stroke specific to your needs.
