I LOVE teaching swimmers and triathletes how to swim faster with less effort. 

Why is it that top triathletes and Olympians make it look so easy and effortless, while YOU seem to be working so hard?  

These athletes know a secret...and I do too. 

Do LESS...get MORE. 

My Faster Freestyle and Multi-stroke workshops are designed to help swimmers and triathletes discover the easy way to swim faster. After just one session, you will be a better swimmer! Set up or sign-up for a workshop today.

Types of Swim Technique Workshops I offer: 

Faster Freestyle with before/after video (4 hours). This workshop offers two-videotaping sessions with my expert analysis in a small group environment. After spending the first hour in a classroom setting, students will then enter the water where I will film and analyze the "before" stroke. Once everyone was been filmed, we will then begin with the basics: relaxed breathing, body balance and learning how to become more self-aware. Then, we will gradually build into the step-by-step freestyle stroke progression designed to help you swim with a faster and more efficient freestyle. The will conclude with a second video analysis of the "after" stroke, followed by snacks and Q and A.  Cost is $195 and space is limited to 10. 

Faster Freestyle (3 hours): The same as above but without the video. Perfect for a larger group or team. Cost is $125 and space is limited to 20. Group discounts are available.

Triathlon/Open Water Skills & Drills (3 hours). This super FUN workshop can be offered year-round at a climate controlled pool, or in the warmer months at a safe, sandy beach. We will start with a mini Faster Freestyle workshop, then shift to open water skills and drills including: sighting, drafting, evasive moves, warming up, start position and breathing techniques for all types of conditions and more. Cost is $95 for up to 25 people. Group discounts are available.

Multi-Stroke (back, breast and fly) workshop (3 hours). Swimming is a lifetime sport, so why not learn how to do the "other" strokes with EASE and CONFIDENCE? Even the oh-so-hard BUTTERFLY can be fun! Don't worry if you can't do these strokes, I will teach you! Cost is $125. Group discounts are available.

Youth SWIM FASTER NOW Workshops: This fun and energetic 2.5 hour YOUTH workshop will cover all four strokes, fast turns, motivation and how to focus on the details for better training and racing. Cost is $95.

FOREIGN SWIM CLINICS for coaches and youths

I offer FREE workshops to coaches and swimmers from developing counties to share my knowledge, enthusiasm and teaching techniques with the world. This program is a WIN-WIN for all. Coaches attend a morning session that features two swim technique presentations (see sample topics here). In the afternoon we invite youth swimmers to attend a Faster Freestyle or Multi-Stroke workshop with the local coaches assisting on deck. This helps everyone see and experience the effectiveness of the teaching techniques just learned. Requirements: Nominal travel fee, accommodation and the opportunity to host additional paid clinics in the area
