You will master the keys to front crawl/Freestyle swimming for your next Triathlon swim. I will de-mystify swimming technique so you will swim easier in the water. You will feel more confident and strong in the water.

Weeks 1 to 4 are pool based sessions and weeks 5 to 8 have open water session options.

This plan is ideal for race distances up to IRONMAN® 70.3. For distances over 1900m see the advanced plan. You must be able to swim 400m front crawl to be able to start this plan.

My name is Karen and I live in Southern Spain near the IRONMAN® Marbella 70.3 event where I coach and run Triathlon training camps all year round (ChiliTri). So, if you would like face to face coaching and come and check out the Marbella course please get in touch. Karen is an IRONMAN® Certified Coach and British Triathlon Federation Level 3 Coach. I also work as a Coach Educator & Assessor for the British Triathlon Federation, helping to develop the next generation of triathlon coaches in the UK.
Karen is also a Qualified Personal Trainer specialising in endurance athletes so all of the S & C sessions are tried and tested.

Good luck with your training and Race!
