Master Your Technique - The Swimologist

Your Swim Plan coaching can help you: 

  • Learn proper technique: freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke & butterfly.
  • Perfect pacing and breath easy.
  • Adapt your freestyle to your body type or physical challenge. 
  • Open water swim: start from shore, sight, pace, go the distance.
  • Use equipment for your workouts: kickboard, pull buoy, wetsuit.
  • Create a fun and challenging fitness routine you can take anywhere.   

 Your Swim Plan will be customized using the five-step Swimology learning method

Demonstrate

Hear. See. Progress from easy to hard.

You will learn the science behind each new swim skill, it will be demonstrated for you and broken down into easy to learn progressions.

Assist

The support you need to learn.

You will be supported either physically or with the aid of swim equipment like a flutter board or floating barbell so that you can learn each new skill with the proper support.

SOLO

The space to do a skill by yourself. 

Once you have mastered a skill with support, you will move on to performing it solo.

Verbal cues, intermittent support and feedback will help guide you.

practice

Practice. Practice and tweak.

You will practice each skill and receive clear and specific feedback to help you perfect your technique. You will also receive support where needed.

mastery

Independently perform a skill.

You will be able to demonstrate a skill yourself without even thinking about it.

You no longer require support or verbal cues.

We always start from where you're at and move at a pace that is comfortable for you.

​During your lesson you can:

  1. Ask questions at any time.
  2. Ask to skip a skill we are practicing should you feel overwhelmed.
  3. Let Stephanie know how you learn best and request to practice again any skill you feel shaky on.

Stephanie is a warm and caring person who exudes enthusiasm and empathy – characteristics that were critical for me to overcome my fear of the water and learn how to swim. 
I can honestly say that Stephanie is the reason I am swimming today.

If I can learn to swim at the age of 71, you can, too.
With Stephanie as your guide, you are in the hands of an adult learn-to-swim expert.

When I started I couldn't stand water on my face, not even in the shower. I felt like I couldn't breathe in chest-deep water.
Stephanie took me from being terrified of going underwater to jumping up and down in the deep end and swimming across the pool on my own.
