Slay the DRAGon: Reducing drag is imperative if you want to move through the water quickly and efficiently.

Dryland Training: A proper dryland routine will not only make you stronger, it will also prevent injury, improve your balance, and increase your range of motion so that you can swim faster! Lee Sommers is one of the best strength and conditioning coaches in swimming. He will teach you exercises that will take your swimming to the NEXT LEVEL!

Mental Preparation: Swimming is a very mental sport. Being able to acheive the right mindset before you step up onto the blocks can mean the difference between achieving your goal or falling short. Matt Grevers will talk you through the ups and downs of his career and what he's learned from over a decade of Olympic swimming experience about how to have a champion mindset!
