Personalized Swim Coach

This 6-week program is for swimmers who wish to have their swimming technique reviewed and critiqued with a professional coach and receive weekly training schedules and tasks to support personal goals. Weekly workouts will be tailored to each client with some standardization. The on-line program is a perfect way to train for a particular water event with specific guidance on training from a highly qualified instructor. The training is excellent for local events such as the Low country Splash, the Swim Around Charleston and also the spring and summer triathlon season. This program can also be used for anyone wishing to create a personalized water fitness regimen.

Program includes:

One hour consultation and coaching session to determine goals and assess stroke technique; 2-3 weekly workouts personally designed and delivered via email; 30 minute post pool assessment with consultation; open communication with Coach Wilson via email or phone

Water For Arthritis

This program is designed for those with arthritis or similar chronic conditions and who wish to use the buoyancy of the water to reduce pain, improve strength, range of motion, balance, and flexibility. Why water for arthritis?

  • Water removes the impact stress of ground reaction force.
  • Water provides greater resistance than air helping to strengthen muscles and burn more calories than on land.
  • Water allows you to work at a higher level that you could tolerate on land, which helps improve mobility and strengthen cardiovascular endurance.

Sessions are offered on Tuesdays, 10am and Thursdays, 5:00pm

6-week program $120, safe mini-group setting
