There are a lot of advantages to swimming in an Endless Pool. The biggest benefit is the visibility you get some swimming in the same spot continuously. As the swimmer, you'll get feedback tremendous feedback on your technique from the mirrors on the bottom of the pool. There is also no better environment for a coach to see exactly what's happening with your stroke. Add in the 4 camera system we use to catch what's happening from the front, back side, and overhead, and you just can't beat it. It also allows you to very easily try different things with your stroke and see how it affects your efficiency. It can also force you to hold your form and push yourself to hold certain paces since the pace is statically controlled and managed.
Absolutely not! Peak welcomes swimmers of our ages and abilities. It has been said that swimming is 80-85% technique and only 15-20% fitness. As a result, learning and executing proper technique is critical. If you're new to swim, start off by learning the RIGHT WAY to swim. A lot of people try to learn on their own, develop bad habits, and then try to correct them. By developing good habits from the start, you'll save yourself a lot of time and energy. Colin loves working with new swimmers and has over a decade of experience working with new swimmers.

Like many things, the difference between what we think we're doing and what we're actually doing can be quite dramatic. Swimming is no exception to this. Over time, even experienced swimmers start to get sloppy or develop smart inefficiencies with the stroke. That's why we recommend even elite level swimmers get feedback on their stroke regularly. Small little adjusts to your technique call really go a long way on improving your speed and efficiency in the water.
