Fiona’s clinics are highly individualised, technically coached and feedback driven, providing you with strategies to apply to your stroke, improving your efficiency. Swim Smooth's stroke correction analysis provides the opportunity to have your stroke filmed from all angles in super-clear, high definition footage. Fiona improves your swim efficiency, exploring your breathing, body position, rotation and finer details of the catch and pull to improve propulsion with less effort.
A full Swim Smooth video analysis involves filming and analysing a swimmer from all angles. Fiona summarises your analysis with key elements for improving your swim efficiency and speed based on your goals, whether they be a triathlon, open water swimming or simply to understand how to be efficient and faster from season to season.
All meals and snacks are provided. Our eye-catching meals are designed to support your active lifestyle but also to be tasty and excite. Snacks are available for the times in between. And homemade energy bars are available for those longer efforts.
Individually designed en-suite bedrooms, stunning renovated sitting rooms and cosy reading areas inspire and relax whilst staying true to the Chateau's heritage.
You will receive a follow-up swim improvement pack containing sessions to work through for 8-12 weeks, your recorded video analysis and footage to take away after the clinic, to further your improvement after you leave the retreat. There is no need to make lists or notes as the analysis is recorded for you, including the comparative analysis to elite swimmers and triathletes for powerful visualisation and clarification of optimal and efficient technique!
Professional swimming coaches - with a successful race background - are complemented by degree qualified sports scientists and leading therapists to cater for your every need. Personal service in an enjoyable, relaxing group environment. Approximately 1:3, staffing:guests, ratio.
