This is the first day of a two day workshop that will cover a bit on balance but primarily focus on streamlining, learning the mechanics for the propulsion phase or stroke and implementing the 2-beat kick in freestyle swimming. It is geared towards beginner / intermediate triathletes and fitness swimmers who feel relatively comfortable getting across the pool but need to improve their efficiency and technique. Students will leave the workshop with a full ownership of knowledge of freestyle to allowing them to "self-coach" and critically analysis their technique to continue steady improvement.
The workshop will be limited to only 5 students.
Coaching is done in a 20 yard pool that is a maximum 46 deep to assure the student feels comfortable during the workshop.
Video taping will be done at the beginning, the middle and end of the workshop to show improvement.
Cost is $299.00 per student and $250.00 if you bring a partner.
Cost to take both 1.0 & 2.0 Workshops is $495.00 and $495.00 if you bring a partner.
Location: Sky Club Fitness 125 Marshall Street 7th Floor Hoboken, NJ 07030

TODAY Athletic Performance Coaching offers very comprehensive freestyle / triathlon swim coaching for all levels of abilities from the absolute beginner to the more advanced swimmers and triathletes. We are based out of Hoboken, NJ, just across the Hudson River from New York City. Below is all the information regarding all the Total Immersion Freestyle Swim Coaching we provide, your options and how to register. At the bottom of this email are some questions for you to answer to help us better coach you. There are two (2) options to choose from when deciding on Total Immersion Swim Coaching.
Option #1: Take the traditional Total Immersion Freestyle Swimming Workshop. This included both the 1.0 & 2.0 workshops. You can take just one day or both days. You have the option of taking the workshops consecutively or you can space them apart with one, two (or more) weeks in between. This allows you additional time to practice. Pick a day 1 (first day of workshop) and a day 2 (second day of workshop) based on your scheduling and availability. On the fourth pool session of day 2 of the workshop, we will customize the session to address each student's specific needs. Written out lessons are handed out and video taping is done at the beginning and end of the workshop to show improvement. Cost is $299.00 per workshop or $495.00 for both workshops.
