One reason swimming is so exciting, is that being successful in it is so much about good technique. You don’t have to be a high-level athlete, super strong and super fit to make huge progress and meet your goals.
Small, targeted changes to your technique and regular specific drill practice to complement your trainings are enough to get you swimming with less effort and more enjoyment.
Advanced training systems aren’t just for high level swimmers! We decode these components into simple, fun and accessible language and apply this to our progressive training programs. That’s what the Outpace Swimming method is all about.
