About these clinics

During your swim, choosing the appropriate amount of contact ensures we are pushing against the water in a way that maximizes forward motion. The delicate balance between reducing resistance and creating propulsion is achieved by fine tuning our stroke mechanics. By swimming smarter, not harder, you can work with the water to increase your speed.

The Streamline position

“Streamline position” reduces the amount of our body that encounters resistance from the water. Of course, if we just sit there holding a perfect streamline position, we will go nowhere. We must break our streamline position so that our arms and legs can make contact with the water to provide the force that drives us forward.
