Swim Analysis / Swim Coaching
Triathlon swimming is different than pool swimming and that is why at Playtri we take a different approach. We use our 50+ years of skills and knowledge of pool and open water swimming to develop your swim abilities based on a Balance in the water approach. No matter what your ability, we can help you achieve your swim and triathlon goals. Fear of the water? We have drills you can use to help you. Want to go faster? We have drills that can help you do that. Feeling like you are extremely tired when you get out of the swim or feel like you are swimming in place? We have drills to help you with that. Our coaches use a Balance approach to help you improve your swim and work on your specific needs whether that be fear, endurance or speed.
One on One Sessions
Whether you are new to triathlon or looking to fine-tune technique for effective gains, our one-on-one sessions will allow you to address specific challenges in the swim, bike and run, as well as incorporate functional strength training as an effective part of your training plan.
Nutrition is a key component of achieving an athlete's full potential in triathlon. Our nutritionists have the experience and knowledge to help you achieve your weight and performance goals this season.
