Announcing: The All New Swim Smooth Coaching System!

Nothing happens if you do not first dream it… This was our dream, we hope you like it.

**just need to add some testimonials when we have them all back**

Swim Smooth are very proud to announce the launch of the new Swim Smooth Coaching System! Available to use wherever you are on any phone, tablet or computer - in fact anywhere you can access the internet:

Dive right in:

Featuring over 20 hours of brand new Swim Smooth video and over 300 training sessions to follow, this unique web-app combines all our knowledge on stroke correction, training methods and open water skills. It brings our whole coaching system together in one place, in an always-accessible format.

You can see a full tour of the features below but as you'd expect from Swim Smooth, the system is incredibly comprehensive whilst also being extremely easy to use. First it 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!

Whatever your level of swimming, it's your complete swim coaching solution.

** Don't delay in signing up - our special introductory offer ends on the 22nd December. **

The Swim Smooth Coaching System Tour

The Coaching System dashboard 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:

Of course improving your freestyle stroke technique is a key part of becoming a faster more efficient swimmer. The coaching system uses Swim Smooth's highly developed Swim Type correction processes to develop your stroke technique as a whole:

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:

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're sometimes on a slow connection you can easily switch from HD to SD footage.

As you'd expect the entire Swim Smooth Drill set is in place:

Each drill can be viewed from up to 7 unique angles to get a real three dimensional appreciation of every position together with in-depth voice-over tutorials and summary points:

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:

Extensive training plans for different goals and distances are a huge feature of the Coaching System. There are 12 complete plans to choose from, preparing you perfectly for any event from your first mile swim right through Sprint, Olympic, Half and Full Ironman triathlons, and even 5km, 10km and marathon swims:

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:

You can print out any session to take poolside or if you're a coach, slip your device into a waterproof housing for instant access to everything.

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 Manhattan Island Marathon Swim Champion Paul Newsome!

Another innovative feature of the coaching system is that we've integrated the use of Tempo Trainer Pros. 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!) :

In total there are over 300 sessions in the webapp 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 for you:

Over the last two years we've been busy expanding our archive of elite swimmers with 15 world class swimmers and triathletes included, each specially filmed and analysed by Swim Smooth. There's such much to learn by watching these guys! Here's Double Olympic Champion Rebecca Adlington in action showing us her incredible stroke:

Watch each athlete up-close and from every conceivable angle to give you an amazing insight into why they are so quick through the water. As well as Rebecca the set includes the world’s fastest triathlon Swimmer Richard Varga, Olympian Jono Van Hazel (aka Mr Smooth himself), World Triathlon Champion Tim Don and 7 Times Marathon Swimming Champion Shelley Taylor Smith.

Our award winning Catch Masterclass program is also included (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 and your collection of favourites:

Swim Smooth offers you the most highly developed and respected coaching system in the world used by British Triathlon, Triathlon England, The ASA (Open Water) and The International Triathlon Union governing bodies for their coach education.

And if you're coaching under one of these governing bodies yourself the new web-app based coaching system makes the perfect companion tool to develop your coaching knowledge and skills.
