The Brownlee Brothers Choose HUUB + See You At The Tri Show In London

Some announcements this week:


The Brownlees Choose HUUB!

HUUB wetsuits are only entering their second year but they're already taking the swimming and triathlon world by storm, and now the elite athletes are joining the party. HUUB are very proud to announce today that Alistair and Jonny Brownlee (Gold and Bronze medal winners at London 2012) have chosen HUUB as their wetsuits of choice.

Alistair said: "Since I started Triathlon, I have always known that you have to have a top wetsuit. I choose HUUB because they spend a lot of time researching how to help make me faster in the water. The new suit feels great and I'm looking forward to racing in it this year. It's just a shame they've given Jonny one as well!"

Swim Smooth are co-designers of the range and it's a very proud day for us that two of the greatest triathletes of all time have chosen HUUB. We can't wait to see the swim splits this phenomenal pairing can pump out in these super-fast suits!

Follow today's announcements on HUUB twitter feed and facebook page.

We're Coming Stateside In June

For all our frustrated US readers we have some great news, we're planning a trip to the US in June this year. Paul Newsome and Adam Young will be kicking off in New York after Paul takes on the mighty 46km Manhattan Island swim - let's hope he's got some energy left to coach afterwards! More details of the tour to follow soon.


The Triathlon Show March 1-3rd

Kicking off a week today, Swim Smooth will be at the Triathlon Show (formerly TCR) at Sandown Park, London. Paul is flying in from Australia and will be joined by Adam Young and many of the other Swim Smooth Coaches from around the UK.

We're sharing a stand with HUUB wetsuits - come and say hi and bring a video clip of your stroke along on a pen drive and we'll give you an analysis of your stroke to take away. Of course, we'll also have all our DVDs, training plans and the new Swim Smooth book for you to check out on the stand.

Bring along some footage and we'll
analyse your stroke live at the show!
Make sure you try on one of the fantastic HUUB wetsuits and discover why Alistair and Jonny chose HUUB over any other wetsuit on the market.

Paul and Adam will also be giving two presentations at the show :

Stroke Technique & Efficient Swimming, Saturday March 2nd 10:00am in The Triathlon Show Theatre
Featuring our unique HD footage of elite swimmers, Swim Smooth take a close look at why great swimmers and triathletes are so quick and how to make the same changes in your own stroke.

Transforming Your Open Water Swimming, Sunday March 3rd 12:15pm in The 220 Triathlon Live Seminar Theatre
Worried about open water swimming or struggling to transfer your pool performances across to the open water? We take a close look at why that is and how to get much much better at it. Includes new footage from our elite group in Perth showing you how it's done and sometimes getting it wrong themselves!

Both of our seminars played to packed auditoriums last year so get there early to get a seat.


Go Rotto!

Last but not least the 23rd Rottnest Channel Swim takes place tomorrow morning in Perth, good luck to everyone taking part in this great event! The weather forecast isn't that great so tough it out and keep focused on your rhythm if it is lumpy out there. Follow Paul's twitter for updates from the event @SwimSmoothPaul and use the hashtag #rottoswim

Paul's in great swim shape and is taking on the 21km solo swim himself. :)

Swim Smooth!

Hey there,
I bought the 3 disc "Clean Up Your Stroke" set recently and have been plugging away at the pool. Awesome drills! Now okay coming to New York - that's closer than the UK but am wondering if you will EVER make it to the West Coast of Canada eh?
Would you/ could you, if I sent some video of my stoke, if you'd care to comment? Good Luck in NY Paul!!
cheers
claire

Hi Chris, Claire, we'd love to come to Canada soon - it's very much on our list!

Claire, yes if you put your footage on youtube and send us the link to feedback@swimsmooth.com or post it on our forum then we'll give you some input. You can make it "unlisted" on youtube so nobody else can see it if you prefer.
