Don't worry you are not alone - most adults struggle with freestyle at first! There's lots of things to think about and coordinate which can make it very challenging. We need to break things down into different elements such as your breathing technique and your leg kick, so you can practise one thing at a time before bringing them together and building up the stroke bit by bit.
To take you through Swim Smooth's unique method for teaching you to swim we created the inspirational Swim Smooth Learn To Swim Freestyle Program, comprising 12 easy to follow steps to developing your freestyle:
