The water temperature has gone up to 20 degrees and the air temperatures are balmy. It is such a privilege to see these freestylers rediscover there love for swimming. Some haven't swum for over 5 years. After a session we talk and they ask themselves why did I give this up and say "I need to make time for this on a regular bases". It feels great to put peoples focus back on something they clearly love to do.
On the other side freestylers come and tell me they experience swimming as a continuous struggle and they cannot focus on the fun element of it. Clearly they need help with their stroke & confidence. I always explain them once the technique and strength is enhanced the fun begins. Amazing to see how swimmers improve once we put them on a training plan and correct or redevelop their stroke. Weeks later you hear a complete different story, how they are so relaxed , more confident and have so much more enjoyment while swimming in the ocean.
Swimming in the ocean provokes a lot of different emotions, you get happy that you done a certain distance or are amazed what nature shows you or in absolute awe of its power when the swell and surf picks up.
Doing what you love is essential in life. If you like to find out if this sport is for you please contact me
for a trial/assessment lesson. I know for sure we are changing peoples view about ocean swimming one by one.
Happy swimming everyone!
