Master the art of flip turns!
There are no walls in the open water, so why waste precious training time on tumbling drills?
An open turn allows a mental and physical break in the swim. Think about riding a bike. Do you get to the top of a hill, stop, check your pace and congratulate yourself, or do you increase the cadence and crest the hill? You move on, as you should in the swim. The cost is $20 for 60 minutes.
Who: This clinic is designed for anyone who has never learned how to do flip turns or is interesting in learning how to improve their technique and learn the art of doing effective flip turns.

Some of my favorites: Accomplishing a major goal is amazingly rewarding; however, the process involved to achieve the goal is truly the most rewarding part of the challenge. Reflection upon the path to each goal is my favorite part of being an athlete and coach.

From an early age I was fortunate to have coaches and role models that emphasized the importance of understanding and applying fundamental technique/efficiency, nutrition, strength training, flexibility, the psychological factors involved in performance, and more. I began as a student of sport from an early age and I am still eager to learn, study, and analyze sport. This is a passion I like to share with my clients and I get excited seeing improvement and goal attainment.
