Description

Summer is finally here, and brings with it the arrival of our Group Front Crawl Technique Swim Sessions!

Held weekly at Guildford Outdoor Lido, on Fridays at 830 am, starting on 14th July 2017. Ten week blocks of swimming sessions.

Participants will improve their stamina, endurance, speed and technique for front crawl, and above all, have great fun!

All sessions are periodised into blocks of 10 weeks according to our annual swim training plan.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Each session lasts for one hour and will include a 5-10 minute warm up; 45-50 minutes of technique and short distance interval training, where you’ll be building your cardio vascular fitness and muscular endurance, followed by a 5 minute cool down with stretches.

Each week you'll focus on a different aspect of the front crawl stroke, as well as refining your technique from previous sessions. Your coach will keep a record each week of how you're doing, and the improvements you'll be making, so that you make consistent progress and enjoy each session fully.

How do you know if these sessions are right for you?

These sessions are for intermediate swimmers who can swim front crawl in the speed range of 1:30 minutes to 2:30 minutes pace per 100 metres.

We require you to be able to swim at least 100 metres continuous front crawl before booking on the course.

Examples of the types of exercises and drills we will ask you to do include:

  • Drills to improve your streamlining and reduce your resistance in the water
  • More relaxed and easier breathing techniques
  • Improved kicking technique
  • A higher body position
  • Achieving a more balanced swim stroke

We also organise regular fitness tests (optional) for you to assess your performance and tracks your improvements.

GROUP FITNESS

Our Speedy Swim groups offer a social way to build your fitness. Our friendly coaching will ensure you feel part of the group and in a matter of minutes you’ll be having fun with everyone else as you learn new techniques.

Places are limited to 16 swimmers per session, to ensure you receive the best possible level of coaching available by our Speedy Swim coach.

Testimonials for Group swim sessions:

"Nick ran the swim sessions for David Lloyd Triathlon club for 6 months and in that time he consistently applied his training methods and approach to swim training that enabled me and all of the other members of the tri club to reduce our 400m time trial times. More than that his sense of humour made these sessions enjoyable and the hour in the water fly by!

I can highly recommend him as a trainer/coach, you won’t be disappointed. “John Leysen
