Open Water Swim Training

OPEN WATER SWIMMING

Well, there is a world of difference in open water swimming and pool swimming. Both have an important part in your training. The pool is the best place to...first, learn to swim, then practice your technique, drills and speed work. This will build your mental confidence knowing you can swim, and physically prepare you for the event.


Open water is a total different experience!

Now that you know how to swim, its time to take it to the outdoors. The difference in pool swimming and open water swimming is comfort. When I say comfort, I mean your state of mind. Swimming in the pool is swimming in your comfort zone, clean clear water, no current, no blinding sunlight or the dark unknown. Once most athletes hit the merky dark waters, they mentally breakdown and lose all knowledge and understanding of how to swim... basically, they panic and forget
that they know how to swim...metal block.

“The lake swim was a lot tougher than the harbor, and pool laps aren’t even close.”

— Kevin K.


I have been swimming in the open water for over 20 years, and have the experience to bring you to the next level and help you understand how to overcome
the metal block in just a few personal sessions. Contact me for a one-on-one session today. 504-251-4414
