Plan Description

Winning is a Mindset Not a Spot on the Podium

This learn to swim program is for the BRAND NEW swimmer who has no experience in the water. We will take you from learning to blow bubbles to swimming across the pool unassisted through our series of drills. These are the same drills and same programs that we've seen work for countless athletes who have begun their swimming journey from humble beginnings. If you don't know where to start and want to learn how to swim for a triathlon in a safe and relaxed manner, then this plan is for you. 


"This plan has taught me what it means to truly train like a swimmer. I can't believe I've been doing it wrong for so many years. I used to hate swimming but with this new approach, I'm enjoying my swim workouts AND getting faster. Who knew such a thing was possible?"
