Swim Smooth, in my opinion, is quite possibly the best FREE triathlon swimming website around. Paul Newsome is the founder and head coach of Swim Smooth. Paul is British born but now based in Perth, Australia. Swim Smooth is an innovative swimming coaching company devoted to all levels of swimmers and triathletes. The over-riding goal of Swim Smooth is to raise the standard of swimming coaching and the level of knowledge available to amateur swimmers and triathletes around the world.
Swim Smooth have developed the Mr Smooth Console. This is a great learning tool for swimmers and triathletes of any level. The very latest thinking in freestyle stroke mechanics have been taken to carefully produce an animation showing an 'ideal stroke' for amateur swimmers and triathletes. Use the Mr Smooth animation as a visualisation tool to understand the freestyle stroke better - the visual cues will soon have you improving your swimming.
To download Mr Smooth you must sign up to the Swim Smooth blog 'Feel for the Water'. The blog is packed full of great information to assist you in your quest to becoming a better swimmer and triathlete.
Get yourself a swimming buddy with Mr Smooth and feel your swimming improve without even getting wet! There is no substitute for good quality practice but visualisation is a very valuable training tool. Tim (LFTC Coach)
