warm and relaxed in controlled conditions, able to focus on what we need to train our bodies and minds for faster, easier
open water swimming.

What triathletes say...
"I took a stroke technique clinic with WaveOne
[about a year ago]. It was the best thing I did.
Their workouts kicked my butt initially, but they
provided so many great cues and corrected my
stroke in multiple ways, I remember how
significantly stronger I felt as a swimmer after
the first practice. I say definitely go for it!!"
Eliminate your bad habits:
- Stop struggling to breathe by learning better body balance.
- Feel like you work so hard and don't go anywhere?
- Swim easier by learning the WaveOne feel the water techniques that help you be comfortable and propel
yourself through the water.
- Swimming with dragging your hips and legs? We teach you streamlined body position.
- Stop kicking like a "runner" and learn fluid swim kicking that saves energy.
What you will learn:
- Techniques and training for a 1,500m open water race.
- Straight line swimming that eliminate excess mileage.
- How to break through a plateau. For example, you are swimming 100's but can't seem to swim faster that 1:
54 per 100 no matter how hard you try. We will work with you to break through to your next faster level.
