ONGOING MULTIPLE  Swim Speed Secrets Swim Clinic 

GET MORE POWER AND PROPULSION FROM YOUR SWIM STROKE: Swimmers and triathletes will have a unique opportunity to improve their swim technique with 4-time Olympian, gold medalist, and triathlon world champion Sheila Taormina. At just over 5' 2", Taormina refined her exceptional freestyle swim technique to win a swimming gold medal at the 1996 Olympics and the 2004 ITU triathlon world championship.

Attendees will learn what it means to "feel" the water as well as how to develop the strength and flexibility (in-water and out of water) required for fast swimming. With the small class size, Sheila will be able to work one-on-one with you to develop the intricacies of the propulsive underwater pull, build a stronger connection between your core muscles and limbs, and refine the proper timing, rhythm, and turnover required for faster swimming.

Techniques that you will learn include:
1. The intricate details of the propulsive underwater pull that elite swimmers employ.
2. The correct stroke timing - where in the stroke cycle the arms pass by each other, and the upper core strength needed to master this timing.
3. Strength training exercises in-water, and out of water, that build the muscle tone and endurance required for "feeling and holding" water - the secret ingredient for fast swimming!
