SWIM IQ WORKSHOP  ***NEW***

Team Atomica continues to offer the most effective and unique swim clinics Toronto has to offer with the addition of the Swim IQ Workshop where over four weeks you will learn new skills that will enhance your power through the water. This clinic is for every swimmer who wants to improve their ability to trust and move water in more dynamic methods that will give them the power to problem solve and respond to their environment, wherever they choose to swim.

Swimmers will learn how to improve their water fluency by discovering new sculling and travelling methods that will give them a better connection to the water.  They will learn how to activate explosive & fast-twitch muscle responses, be shown how to hone their alignment in their streamline position, learn new balance drills, develop breath control in a variety of dynamic body positions, as well as learn how to get comfortable with starts, stops and moving backwards.

6 WEEK VIDEO SWIM CLINIC  

Team Atomica offers the most effective swim clinics Toronto has to offer. Our 6 week, in-depth swim analysis and correction clinic is coached by Darian Silk.
Each week Darian teaches new technical skills, videotape your swimming and provide feedback. This unique long-form clinical format allows you to learn and practice, but most importantly get real-time visual and verbal corrections. This session is for swimmers and triathletes of all levels who want to focus on improving their swim technique, efficiency and ultimately, speed.

“I can’t tell you how helpful this clinic has been for my stroke. I still have work to do on technique but the difference in my stroke feels like night and day. Ayesha was amazed at the changes when I went to one of her workouts last week. The stroke count drill last night was a great litmus test – for years I have been pretty much exactly 16 strokes per length. When we counted last night, even when I was going against the current I was down to 15. I expect that you have dropped my average stroke count per length by probably about 3, which makes a major difference in shoulder fatigue over longer distances. If I can just get my stroke synced up with body rotation I am hopeful that the pain I feel in my shoulder after lots of distance training will disappear altogether (and it is already greatly diminished). Thank you so much for everything!” –Maureen L (Dec 2019)
