Description

Soak up some sun at Club La Santa, Lanzarote, a world-famous sports resort. If you are comfortable swimming 400m plus front crawl and would like to improve your technique and become a more efficient swimmer, then this is the week for you. It’s also ideal for those who are new to swimming in open water and want to develop their open water swimming skills and experience. On this tour we will be joined by Total Immersion Coach James Ewart, who will help you with your swimming technique. As such, this tour will combine technique sessions in the pool with some lagoon sessions. There will also be time to enjoy some of La Santa’s 30+ other spirting activities on offer – enjoy some yoga, hire a bike and explore Lanzarote’s dramatic landscape or simply read a book whilst watching the waves. We should emphasise that this week is about refining your technique, not completing huge distances at speed.

Total immersion coach James Ewart is a technique-focussed swim coach, open water enthusiast and video analysis expert. James helps you understand what you should be doing when you are swimming and why.  He is also a regular contributor to Outdoor Swimmer magazine. James is a Total Immersion Level 3 swim Coach and an STA Level 2 Open Water Coach.  Total Immersion was established over 30 years ago by Terry Laughlin. It is a tried and tested system for helping swimmers become more efficient. It also helps keep swimmers injury free; encouraging a safe range of movement for the shoulders. TI helps you become more balanced and streamlined, enabling you to move more effectively through the water.

ABOUT CLUB LA SANTA

Club La Santa is the only resort in the world with three 50m swimming pools. Created with the dream of ‘being the world’s best playground for active people’, there are over 30 sports activities which are included in your tour price. We’re confident you’ll have a blast in and out of the water, and we’ll be sure to build in some free time for you to try your hand at some of the other sports on offer. The SwimQuest itinerary will focus on technique and stroke efficiency. There will be opportunities to improve and reflect on your technique in a pool environment before moving into open water. There will be two swims a day (some pool, some lagoon based) with video analysis and expert advice from SwimQuest guides. The itinerary also includes swim seminars, advice on planning events, and how to tackle longer distances.
