Swim video analysis in Spain – Alicante
As a certified Swim Smooth Coach, Martin is fully trained in advanced Video Analysis and Stroke Correction for swimmers of all ability levels. If you feel you have reached a plateau with your swimming or struggle with too many things going around your head when you swim Martin will show you very clearly what you are doing wrong and exactly how to improve your stroke using all of Swim Smooth’s cutting edge methods. It’s will be a revelation for your next step in swimming! Paul Newsome runs through the process here to give you a flavour of the session.
One Very High Quality Session
Swim Smooth don’t believe stroke correction should involve visiting a coach for 6, 8 or 10 sessions. Our process is of such high quality and so focussed on your individual needs that a single session with a follow up 4-8 weeks later is enough to transform your swimming. How do we do this?
- We use real swimming pools, not endless pools which are very turbulent and buffet you as you swim. A real pool environment means we can correct your stroke much more quickly and accurately. In the pool we film you using an extremely high quality HD camera from above and below the water from the side, in front, overhead and any other angle required. The camera angles are not fixed so if a close-up of a particular area of your stroke is required it can easily be covered.
- We then get you out of the water to analyse your footage on a computer. This whole analysis is recorded - including all supporting video comparisons with elite swimmers and key animations and all voices and conversation. This process takes around twenty minutes which is why we record everything for you – we can’t expect you to remember every detail – and is perfect for you to watch back as often as you like in the comfort of your own home.
- During the analysis we will use Swim Smooth’s unique tools, animations and elite video archive to really highlight how your own stroke compares in key areas and to show you what to address for improvement. These visualisations of good stroke technique are so important, especially if you are a visual learner.
- After the analysis you jump back in the water for the second half of your session: stroke correction. Using exactly what we saw on the computer this session is completely tailored to your individual needs as a swimmer. Swim Smooth are famous for their individual approach to stroke correction (‘coaching the swimmer not the stroke’) – this is another reason why our methods are so powerful and achieve fast results!
The combination of you understanding your current swimming ability obtained from the video analysis and Martin using all of Swim Smooth’s coaching methods to correct and refine your stroke technique will rapidly improve your speed, efficiency, relaxation and confidence in the water.
At the end of your session Martin will give you a full 15-20 page training plan to take away with you, tailored to your individual needs as a swimmer. This includes reminders of the drills you performed during your stroke correction session and also training sessions to follow specific to your individual needs. Everything you need to transform your swimming!
