In this course we work on the freestyle timing. The timing of your freestyle is an important factor of the stroke. With timing we mean the timing of your breath and when you start the catch for the next pull-through. This is crucial for your body positioning in the water, your arm recovery and for your breathing.
What to expect?
This course is 5 weeks with a total of 10 workouts, 2 each week. We will focus on the freestyle timing by using specific drills to improve this. Elements of this are your body rotation, body position, your arm recovery, and your pull-through.
How does it work?
Each week you follow 2 instruction videos with technique exercises that will help you with your freestyle timing. You start with your body rotation, and later incorporate your breathing into this to improve the timing of your breath. The next step is improving the timing you’re your catch in combination with your push-out and arm recovery. And finally, you combine the timing of your breath and the timing of your pull-through.
After watching an instruction video, you can practice this exercise in a pool near you. When you have completed the exercise, you can finish your swim with a body conditioning workout that is included in every step. This way you improve your technique, endurance and strength all in one workout.
Training Equipment: We advise you to use the following training equipment: a kick board and pull buoy (both floating devices), a snorkel and fins.

I started with SwimGym coaching as a complete novice. To be honest, I barely floated. Within weeks my skills improved and within months I made my way into the mid-level and ultimately to the pro’s. The perfect combination of technique training and a total body workout.
I started with SwimGym training courses after I got my swimming diploma, so I was a real novice. In a year and a half, I have advanced to the mid-level, completed a 1500m open water race and realised my dream of learning how to kitesurf, all thanks to the swimming foundation laid by SwimGym.
