FREESTYLE TECHNIQUE: ONE-ON-ONE INSTRUCTION
One-on-one lessons are invaluable for a variety of reasons whether it be for stroke correction, motivation or to jump-start improvement. One of the main reasons however is to specifically understand how your personal swimming habits are affecting your performance. We believe that all swimmers should periodically revisit their technique using video expert analysis, including the pros. Poor technique can develop over time without you being aware!
Lessons are one hour in duration and swimmers will be videoed using underwater camera footage (front and side on) as well as from pool deck and overhead. Using interactive audio technology we are able to instruct and communicate with the athlete whilst swimming.
Once your swim mechanics have been analysed you will have the opportunity to view the swim footage and discuss where improvements can be made to achieve optimal freestyle technique.
Personal video footage is made available to participants post session via file sharing through Drop Box. Swimmers will also be e-mailed information outlining corrective swimming drills and how to perform them.
Private lessons are held Saturday mornings out of the AUT Millennium facility. Contact us to find out the next available slots.
1 hour swim technique analysis session with video: $120
45 mins follow up sessions: $80
