The Swim Smooth DVD Boxset "Clean-up Your Stroke!" is the superb swimming program specifically for triathletes and open water freestyle swimmers. Use the DVDs and included Training Program to help you improve your swimming technique and so SPEED and EFFICIENCY through the water.

DVD 1 - Stroke Technique Correction

Swim Smooth prides itself on providing a totally comprehensive training package which gives you over 30 pool based drills, neatly divided into 7 specific areas of freestyle stroke technique:

- Catch and Pull

The first DVD features swimming and drill demonstrations by Sydney Olympic Gold Medallist, Bill Kirby OAM. Swim Smooth Head Coach Paul Newsome provides observation and instruction backed by the guidance and bio mechanical knowledge of Swim Smooth's physiotherapist, Michelle Smith.

The first disc also contains many demonstrations of the common mistakes you should look out for within your own stroke technique. Using our straightforward 'Cause And Effect' approach to stroke correction, we'll show you the underlying cause of each stroke problem - it's often not obvious! Then we'll show you the best drills and visualisations to fix that underlying problem. Find out more about our Cause And Effect approach below.

DVD 2 - Open Water Swimming Technique

The second DVD contains specific open water swimming drills and exercises to make sure you can transfer the improvements you've made in the pool into an open water race environment. Don't underestimate how important this is!

Open Water
A feature of the boxset is the comprehensive section on open water swimming. Find out how to perform at your very best in your next triathlon.

Disk 2 is essential viewing for triathlon novices and experienced athletes alike.

We explain in detail what equipment you need in open water and how to use it correctly. We interview and watch demonstrations by several top elite open water swimmers to understand race techniques and strategies for starts, turns, drafting, pacing, sighting and swim exits.

Last but not least we explain changes you can make to your stroke technique to make it better suited for open water swimming. These will give your performances a further lift.

Get these things right on your race day and you'll have a perfect race!

Disk 3 - Full Training Plan and Training Tools

The PC and Mac compatible CD-ROM contains a full 8-Week / 25 Session Training Program for you to follow when you swim. These structured sessions break the monotony of continuous swim sessions and get you focused on improving your swimming technique with detailed drill sets and fitness sessions.

training plan extract
Each session of the training plan is carefully designed to improve your fitness and your stroke.

The Training Program strikes the perfect balance between technique training and fitness training. In conjunction with the DVDs it's the perfect way to improve your swim speed.

Within the Training Program there are 3 levels to choose from - Novice, Intermediate and Advanced – one will be perfect for you! The Training Program can be undertaken at any time – during the race season to get you in peak swim shape for your big race, or over the winter to develop your swimming to a higher level.

Also contained on Disk 3 is a Pace Calculator to work out target times for your training (in MS Excel format). A sample Strength, Core and Flexibility program and Swim Smooth's "Injury 101" prevention article.

rewarding
Improving your swimming is very rewarding.

If you are a triathlete and your swimming is a weakness we highly recommend a specific training phase to focus on your swimming.

Cut back a little on your running and cycling for 8 weeks – follow the Training Program in the Boxset and get really focused on your swimming. You'll be amazed what you can achieve!

Afterwards, return to all-round swim/bike/run and get into top triathlon shape.

Our Straightforward Approach - Cause And Effect

Swim Smooth's stroke correction methods are straightforward and to the point. We use our deep understanding of swimming technique to explain the underlying causes of your stroke issues. This is true whether you're an intermediate swimmer working on your body position, body roll and alignment or an advanced swimmer working on propulsion and your feel for the water.


Fix The Underlying Cause

It's quite likely you've already tried improving an aspect of your stroke technique, maybe even several aspects. Most swimmers attempting stroke changes find it a frustrating experience, often feeling their stroke is deteriorating rather than getting better. Take a common problem for intermediate swimmers - a scissor kick that creates lots of drag. The obvious thing to do is determine that this person has a poor kick and therefore they should work on it with lots of kicking drills. This is unlikely to work because a scissor kick is an effect of something else, not a cause in itself.

By understanding the stroke a little deeper we know that scissor kicks are normally caused by a loss of balance from crossing-over the centre line on hand entry at the front of the stroke. By showing you how to work on and remove that cross over, you will automatically fix the scissor kick too. This is a simple example of the cause and effect approach to stroke technique correction which is contained in the DVD.

Throughout the boxset we use simple explanations and demonstrations to show you how freestyle should be performed. When looking at each aspect of the stroke we'll highlight common problems which you might be experiencing. For every issue we'll clearly show you the very best way to fix the underlying problem - rather than papering over the cracks.

There's no better or more straightforward way to improve your freestyle stroke than The Swim Smooth DVD Boxset. That's why it's become the benchmark stroke correction DVD in the swimming and triathlon world.

Independent Reviews for the Swim Smooth DVD Boxset:

www.swimming.about.com
awarded 5 out of 5 stars

“a must-have item for triathletes, freestyle swimmers, and any coach that works with those athletes".

TransitionTimes.com

“I've seen other DVD training tools in the past, many of which I found difficult to translate from the screen to a useful resource. Swim Smooth is different. This set effectively bridges the gap between theory and practical application, giving the viewer strong visuals on the proper technique, and how using these techniques will make you a faster and more efficient swimmer. Pick up your copy before everyone else in your age group does!”

TriFuel.com

“The amount and detail of information provided in this system makes it worth the price. If you aren't part of a Masters swim program, then this system is a must.” Paul Lieto, founder of trifuel.com

SwimmingWorldMagazine.com

“The Three DVD Collection called Swim Smooth is a very good freestyle instructional series for the adult swimmer or triathlete who never benefited from competitive coaching. I would recommend Swim Smooth for the triathlete who is serious about developing a Training Program on his or her own without the benefit of a regular, experienced coach.” Brent Rutemiller, Publisher.

Triathlon & MultiSport Mag

“Fantastic! An Excellent resource for any swimmer!” Naantali Marshall, Swimming writer and Surf Ironman Guru.

UK Swim Teacher's Association

"I found the DVD easy to watch and understand and it has given me an even greater incentive to swim and assisted me greatly in improving my front crawl!" Lorrain Hewitt, winner of the Swim Smooth promotion at the London Triathlon.
