Swim Stroke Analysis

Do you want to be a better / faster swimmer?

Swimming is ALL about technique, and that’s where we come in…

thetrilife.com offers stroke analysis sessions in our Endless Pool based in Kent.

Learning to swim efficiently is key to being a better triathlete, but, if you’ve never had your swim stroke analysed or actually seen your own performance in the water, you may be unaware of flaws in your technique.

Investing in a stroke analysis will be your first step on the path to swimming better / faster. Not only will you be able to see your stroke (and receive the video clips after your session) but you will also have your stroke analysed  by a BTF Level 3 Coach who will help you to understand the elements of your stroke that need to be improved. Improve your technique, and speed will follow…

It’s also a great way to overcome or avoid injury.  If you’re getting a similar twinge with every swim, you may find that a small adjustment to your technique will make all the difference.  And if you’re fortunate enough to be injury free to date, then having your stroke analysed will pick up any rogue areas of your technique which may cause problems down the line.

Swimming is many triathletes weakest discipline, but even if it’s your most favourite activity by looking at your own technique, alongside a swim coach, you may find that there are some minor flaws or habits that you’ve picked up, with just small changes needed, which will really boost your performance.

A swim stroke analysis session is the first step in understanding the mechanics of the ideal swim stroke and matching that with your own current stroke. Once you have the knowledge in place, you can work towards making improvements in your own performance.
