As some pools start to reopen, many swimmers are still choosing to swim outdoors. But swimming in open water is different from swimming in a pool. Luckily, we have experienced open water swimming coaches at the marine lake. These coaches can help with everything from learning to swim front crawl and confidence in open water, to triathlon training and swimming performance.
Why choose a coach?
Swimming coaches aren’t just for elite swimmers. Choosing to be coached can give you confidence, help your technique and help you adapt to open water. You might be training for an event or challenge, or you might want to feel safer and more relaxed when you swim.
Working with a coach is different from having swimming lessons. It’s a two-way experience, which means that you and your swimming coach will work together to reach your goals.
You may never have swum front crawl before and want to learn. Or, you might be a decent swimmer but find that you’re getting out of breath when you swim, front crawl makes you exhausted, or you don’t know how to look where you’re going (sight). Whatever you want to achieve, working with a coach is fun and rewarding.
