We're pleased to announce the return of our Squad & Technique Training Sessions for January
Are you looking to improve your swim fitness, and hoping to transform your front crawl?
Our weekly Squad Swim Sessions at Aldershot Garrison Sports Centre in a 50 metre pool, are the perfect answer!
Held on Tuesdays at 20.30pm, starting 9th January 2018.
The group sessions will focus on technique, as well as improving distance per stroke, with drills from our 6 phases of front crawl. (These are entry, catch, pull, push, recovery and rotation).
How do you improve your power from core driven rotation for front crawl?
These Rotation technique video drills are all utilising your obliques and core to build power, so you rotate more fluidly.
In the above video you can see drills focusing on bodyroll and improving rotation for front crawl:
• Continuously rotating kick • 45-degree body roll with a Finis tech toch • 6/3/6 (6 kicks on your side, 3 strokes, following by 6 kicks on your other side)
These will all help you become more streamlined as well!
This will be followed by interval based sets to improve strength, speed, pacing awareness, lactate tolerance, anaerobic threshold and open water skills progressing over the weeks into the Spring months.
How do you know if this group is right for you?
If you can swim 6 x 100 metres with 20 seconds rest in the range of 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes 15 seconds pace, then you’ll fit right in!
These 1 hour weekly sessions are targeted for triathletes and masters swimmers, and fitness swimmers looking to improve fitness and technique.

Testimonials for group swim sessions:
"Nick ran the swim sessions for David Lloyd Triathlon club for 6 months in that time he consistently applied his training methods and approach to swim training that enabled me and all of the other members of the tri club to reduce our 400m time trial times. More than that his sense of humour made these sessions enjoyable and the hour in the water fly by!
I can highly recommend him as a trainer/coach, you won’t be disappointed. “John Leysen
