Individual 1 to 1 Triathlon Swim Technique Sessions
Do you need to improve your swimming efficiency or become a more confident swimmer for your open water or triathlon races?
Improving your technique is one of the biggest changes you can make that will ensure your swims are more enjoyable and rewarding.
No matter your level, join Mark Pearce (BTF Level 3 coach) for a 1:1 Swim Technique Session. These are focused upon the technical development of front crawl. These sessions can be booked at any weekday time to suit you.
Due to the very bespoke and tailored nature of this session, it really does deliver bang for your buck and will give you results fast.
Our philosophy on stroke and technique improvement is a long term one, you cannot make a sustainable change instantly, you have to be prepared to put the work into developing your form and technique.
You also need to do it in a structured and progressive approach, the same as you would in a training programme. The diagram demonstrates some of the key areas we look at and work on, you can read more about these from our Swim School page.
We only take an initial commitment of three sessions, one session will not cover enough to make a lasting change. However, we do offer a money-back guarantee, if you are not satisfied with the process and want to cancel your subsequent sessions we will refund 2/3 of the price.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is covered?
Due to the uniquely tailored approach of our 1:1 Swim Technique Sessions, the content is down to the individual swimmer's needs. We will do a profile early in the session, and then we will be able to use this to maximise your time during the rest of the session.
We look at:
- Mobility & flexibility
- Body Position
- Arm action
In order to improve technique, you need to have the foundations set effectively, so we start at this point and work forwards. To effectively change the technique you need repetition and not too many things to think about, so sessions may only end up focussing upon 1 or 2 areas.

Do I need any equipment?
An open mind and a positive attitude will help, plus a few swimming toys to aid learning
- Pull buoy
Finis Tempo Trainer – Useful for working on arm turnover rates, and in training sessions for timing.
Finis Agility Paddles – Unique paddles with no straps, this encourages feel for the water and reduced dropping of the wrist in the catch
Finis Freestyler Paddles – Usually used as training paddles these also help with alignment under the water and provide feedback on ‘S’ in the pull phase
Finis Axis Pull Buoy – This is a unique take on the pull and one of the key ‘toys’ we use. It isolates the legs more by fixing around the ankles and encourages core activation.
Finis Snorkel – Useful for exercises when rotating to breathe is distracting.
Finis Fins – Short stiff fins to provide some extra propulsion, essential for many drills. However not too big so they change the dynamics of the kick.
Finis Pull Buoy – Standard pull buoy
What feedback will I get?
During the session, we use under and over water video to show you during the session what you look like. If you have paid for a 'formal' video summary we will capture your swim technique from a range of angles and provide a video summary with key points and actions. This is uploaded to a password-protected YouTube file which you can view on a range of devices and at your leisure. You can also download this file.
