Featuring over 20 hours of never-seen-before Swim Smooth coaching video to work on all aspects of your swimming and over new 300 training sessions for you to follow, this unique web-app brings our whole award winning coaching system together in one place.
First the system cleverly configures itself to your level of swimming and individual Swim Type, then informs and inspires you on how to move forwards. Follow the simple step-by-step instructions and you will quickly make some big strides forwards with your freestyle swimming in the pool, open water and triathlon events!
The Swim Smooth Coaching System is a revolution in swim coaching resources, having everything at your fingertips from simple pointers and videos through to training plans and ideas makes this a must have for any coach, or swimmer who utilises Swim Smooth methods. I have found myself lost in the system (in a good way!) watching video after video and reading session plan after plan, which makes me think about how I can adapt, use and deliver some of the ideas in my sessions. This is all of Swim Smooth's ideas and philosophy put together in a seamless one-stop package with inbuilt intelligence to guide you smoothly through the system.

The Swim Smooth Coaching System Tour
The Coaching System dashboard (shown above) is the hub of everything you do in the web-app, providing the gateway to all of our coaching content and allowing you to track your development. You can also set race targets here and see quick links to your favourite videos and training sessions.
This was a great surprise to see when Swim Smooth took their extremely talented coaching philosophy and put it into an entire online library of drills, programs and fault fixers! I am a coach as well as an athlete and this system has given me great insight into some of the Swim Smooth nuances we cannot get from YouTube, the book (my bible) and even the DVDs! A job well done Swim Smooth!
Cody Novak, Head Coach www.proclub.com, Seattle, USA
Each process is presented as simple step-by-step instructions to follow and tick off, linking in all the coaching videos, visualisations and drills to get to work on your individual needs as a swimmer. If you've been swimming for a while and become stuck on a plateau then it's likely you've been following generic coaching that isn't working on your weaknesses. Our Swim Type system will fix that and get you moving forwards again.
As well as the Swim Type system you'll also find our Fault-Fixer processes to correct any specific stroke flaw you need to work on. Here's the guide for swimmers who lift their head to breathe - each step expands to give you detailed tasks to apply what you are learning:
In total the system contains over 25 hours of unique Swim Smooth video, including over 20 hours which has never been released before, all shot in incredible HD*. Collating this much high quality footage has been a real labour of love over the last 2 years!
* If you are sometimes on a slow connection you can easily switch from HD to SD footage by clicking the small 'HD' button on the bottom right of each video.
As you'd expect the entire Swim Smooth Drill Set is here. Having all your favourite drills and coaching videos at your fingertips makes a huge practical difference compared to a DVD or book format:
Of course we also have an extensive Open Water Skills section, explaining how to make you a faster and more effective swimmer in the great outdoors. We have skills, methods and practise sessions aplenty:
If you're new to freestyle and not ready for a full training plan yet then try our special Swim Type Follow-On Plan to build you up to swimming 400m (and further) without stopping.
Of course, all the drills and visualisations are fully integrated within the training sessions so you can stay immersed in the session detail without having to constantly refer back to other sections of the web-app:
Oh and if you fancy a real challenge we've also included our extensive new guide to Marathon and Channel Swimming written by our very own 46km Manhattan Island Marathon Swim Champion Paul Newsome!
Another innovative feature is the integrated use of the Finis Tempo Trainer Pro. Start in the MyCSS section and enter your CSS swim test results to get a full analysis of your fitness:
Your resultant CSS pace is then used throughout the app, prescribing you the perfect pace you need to swim in every session for maximum benefit. In fact we tell you exactly what to enter into the Tempo Trainer Pro every time (in true dummies-guide style!) :
Biggest plus for me is the video vault, especially the drills as I find it hard to do from just a description. Overall it's easy to manoeuvre and I really love how the training plans automatically set themselves to your CSS. Simples. Definitely more than worth the money.
James Cliff, Swimmer, UK
In total there are over 300 sessions in the web-app covering all levels of ability from beginner to elite competitor. There's an extensive session library too, so if you're a coach looking for a CSS session for your squad that evening or a swimmer looking for a technique session, it's all there at your fingertips!
The whole system, set up and ease of use is typical of Swim Smooth's approach and philosophy on coaching.
Martin Wood, Head Coach, Lincoln Tri, UK
I think the web-app is great!! The way I like to use it is to watch a focus area, try and practice it and then go to the elite page and watch each person and how they do it. I think it has the fab combo of using all the different techniques of learning -so it appeals to everyone: there are reading bits; things to out in practice; clips to visually watch it in action; and training aids discussed to help people feel it. You couldn’t have made it easier to use and the training plans are fab! This is online coaching hitting a whole new level. I love it!
Emma Pallant, British Elite Triathlon Champion
Our award winning Catch Masterclass program is also included for completeness (previously available on DVD) which has already helping thousands of swimmers to improve their catch and propulsive technique:
The system is also the ultimate resource for clubs and coaches. In fact if you tell the system you are a coach it provides you with a bespoke dashboard layout to more quickly access essential coaching tools such as the Swim Smooth drill set, our elite swimmer footage, the CSS calculator and your collection of favourites:
An absolute compendium of freestyle swimming information for triathletes, open water swimmers and coaches. I feel it will be very well suited to the many triathletes that train solo or only with a few friends of a similar standard. They want to improve so here is the knowledge. Easy to follow with both written and video explanations. No searching Google and Youtube its all here trust-worthy and consistent.
Graham Williams, Head Coach www.swim-tech.co.uk
If you're coaching under one of these governing bodies yourself the new web-app based system makes the perfect companion tool to develop your coaching knowledge and skills.
As an athlete, it tells me what paces I need to be training at - there's no hiding from the numbers! It also allows me to access so many training sessions that the possibility of boredom no longer exists. Keeping this Smooth motivated is no mean feat!! As a coach, It's the single best tool in coaching my triathletes to become better swimmers. It helps me know where they're at and how to make improvements. For my athletes it helps them better understand their swimming style, the drills needed to improve their biomechanics and the type of training needed to improve!! It covers all area's and ultimately makes me a better coach!!
