RING, RING! What’s that? Class is almost in session! As many of you TNM’ers already know, swimming is a highly technical sport. The smallest of tweaks in your stroke mechanics can make a world of difference and increase your efficiency, endurance, comfort in the water, and even prevent injuries. Yes, even swimmers can get injured with improper technique!
This summer we’re going to get serious and learn the ins and outs, the do’s and don’ts, and everything in between about open water swimming. These lessons are for every person who has said, “I’d love to sign up for a triathlon, but I’m afraid of the swim… I can’t swim that far without stopping….I’m afraid I’ll get hurt…I don’t know if I could make it!” Ahhh, the inevitable comments we hear from 95% of people wanting to attempt a triathlon or an open water event.
“The greatest barrier to success is the fear of failure.” — Sven Goran Eriksson
This fear doesn’t have to stop you! You have the ability, and the experienced instructors at TN Multisports will help you FIND it and REFINE it. We offer open water swim instruction for all levels. Sign up for a 4 session private or small group course, or even an escorted endurance swim!
For 2010, we have a number of packages available:

- 3 private open water swim lessons
- =4 total lessons for $150
- Flexibility in days/times
This package includes a personalized pool assessment of your freestyle stroke, technique basics, drills, and “homework” for extra practice. After the first session, we move to the open water to address tips for stroke efficiency and endurance, sighting, equipment needs, and starts and exits of a race. We’ll help tackle any of the fears you might have!
