Welcome to Swim Smooth
Swim Smooth’s sole purpose is to benefit and enhance the freestyle swimming and triathlon communities around the world. We have created a unique methodology that seeks to simplify the complexity of improving freestyle swimming for all abilities and levels.
Whether you swim by yourself, with a group, are a coach or a national federation, we are here to help.
Creative ingenuity is at the heart and soul of everything we do. In fact, we admire this attribute in our coaches and those we train above all else. When combined with our systematic Swim Types framework, which is based on thousands of hours on the pool decks and waterways of the world, this becomes a very fluid, but logical, way to coach.
This lateral thinking has seen us create new ways to solve old problems and allows us to truly coach the swimmer as an individual and not the stroke as a theoretical concept.
We do what we do because we are passionate about innovation, and learning, and want to progress and support the whole swimming ecosystem.
Swim Smooth blends human and online experiences using inspiring coaches, educational content, tools and technology.
We are stoked to have you come on this journey with us. Let's get started!
We consider our certified coaches to be the pinnacle of coaching in freestyle, long distance and triathlon coaching.

This statistic really troubles me for your swimming!
I was troubled to see this statistic. Ironically its from the very same video that Kelly Parker Palace - host of Apple's top-ranked swimming podcast - talks about helping her with an amazing improvement as a World Ranked #1 62 yr old female swimmer.
How do you know if you're going to have a good swim today?
You know that feeling immediately before diving/jumping into the cool waters of the pool/ocean - or pushing off from the wall - when you're really not sure how your swim is going to pan out? Today we'll look at some simple visualisations to help!
