Would you like to be able to swim a mile or more with easy grace, enjoy every stroke and feel energized, not exhausted, when you finish? Would you like to make swimming the best part of triathlon or swim confidently in open water? Our Effortless Endurance workshop will help you achieve those goals; give you a stroke you'll be proud of and a satisfying way to enjoy great health.
Who should take this workshop?
Human swimmers are energy-wasting machines: typically we convert only 3% of energy into forward motion. (Dolphins convert 80% and even elite swimmers like Michael Phelps convert only 9%!) Dolphins move through water, humans move water around, so swimming farther or harder, as traditional programs advise, will only make your 'struggling skills' more permanent. The fastest, smartest way to increase your endurance or speed is to reduce energy waste.
During the workshop you'll learn the three foundation skills of effortless distance swimming:
Become 'weightless' by learning to cooperate with gravity instead of fighting it. Learning balance transforms struggle into smoothness and calms churning legs. It also brings the body control and mental calm necessary to learn every skill that follows.
Learn to move through water, rather than move it around, by:
Slippery swimming means that you travel farther and easier on each stroke.
Replace churning with effortless power by connecting arm and leg actions to rhythmic, relaxed weight shifts initiated in the core. Instead of generating muscular force you’ll direct 'available' forces of body mass and gravity.
This workshop is recommended for those who can swim 50 meters or more of crawl stroke or who have studied TI skills previously via DVD. The workshop includes expert instruction, individualized feedback and video analysis.
You'll enjoy swimming as never before. And the more you enjoy, the more you’ll practice and the more you'll improve.
