“Lora, thanks so much for the expert tips and advice with my swimming stroke analysis! This was exactly what I needed. Now to really incorporating all the great suggestions. You are awesome. I have nothing but great things to say about this analysis and your expertise!”
~ Jessica P.,R.D.
“Underwater swim video analysis with Lora has helped me improve my form so much. Seeing the underwater video of me swimming was not only fun to watch, but it really helped Lora and me see what I was doing well, and where I needed improvement. After a couple of sessions with Lora, I really worked on incorporating the suggestions she gave me, and recently, as part of my training, she had me swim a timed 750 meter effort. I turned out the fastest 750 meter split I have ever swum, racing or training. Now I can’t wait to get out into the open water to swim with a wetsuit! Thanks Lora!” ~ Chris W. – TBR Triathlon team member – 3 years
“The swim video analysis was very helpful. It was especially nice, after having had two shoulder surgeries and not having a swimming background, to have some direction on simple things to do to improve my form. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for some great coaching advice to become a better swimmer.” ~ Emily H.
“I loved the video analysis because I could actually see what I was doing wrong. It was definitely worth the money and time. Thanks so much Coach Lora! “ ~ Brit. G.
“I just did my first two swim workouts after the swim analysis. Yesterday and today, I finally get what I’m supposed to do. I’m SO EXCITED because it felt like it really clicked today. I worked hard on stretching between strokes and I’m happy to report that I shaved four seconds off my 50 meter time just by making a few tweaks. There’s still a lot of work to do, but I felt like I finally found the sweet spot I’ve been looking for. Now, I just have to un-train my body from the ineffective swimming it’s been doing for the last 25 years.I thought the swim analysis was VERY beneficial. It really helped to see what I look like when I’m in the water. It’s hard to visualize what you look like when you’re swimming, but I could see instantly how inefficient my swimming was in the video.I look forward to faster swim times.” ~Sandra H.
