Better Freestyle Swim Series

Better Freestyle Swim Series

Better Freestyle Swim Series is designed to improve your freestyle through a series of progressive steps. Expert instruction covering breathing, rotation, stability, arm cycle and kick so you can improve your form, power and speed. Our approach is to decrease the overwhelm, so you can improve your stroke mechanics quickly and easily.

How would it feel to… 

  • Learn what you are doing wrong and the exact drill(s) that will fix it
  • Stop spending extra hours in the pool just trying to get faster
  • Freestyle more efficiently so you can make that Half or Full Ironman swim distance a reality
  • Exit the swim portion on triathlon race day feeling strong, confident and not having used up all your energy
  • Learn how to breathe bilaterally so you can be more confident and strategic on race day

It’s ALL possible with Alamo 180’s Swim Series program.

“Being a self taught triathlete swimmer, I signed up for this class to help improve my freestyle. WOW, am I so glad I did!!! It was a game changer learning proper technique to swim more efficiently. The adjustments in my stroke and movement in the water made a HUGE difference. Coach Bree gave me so many tools that I think about every time I hit the water. I highly recommend this class!”

“I just wanted to give you feedback regarding my IMAZ attempt after taking your Better Freestyle swim class. Thanks to your instruction, I swam a nice pace.  Office swim time was 1:38:23. Thank you for all your help (swim instructions & IMAZ race tips).”

“Bree it was awesome! I feel more confident in my freestyle and knowing the proper technique. Once you do the drill and put it together makes more sense. I appreciate it Bree. Thank you for everything you do!

“Thank you for the swim series. I was able to start paying close attention to things I was not aware I was doing and make better connections, like rotation and pulling. You were very very patient and gave lots of pointers.”

“I’ve really enjoyed your instruction in the Beginner Freestyle and this Better Freestyle class and hope to sign up for a future class to continue to build on the technique and confidence I have acquired from these classes. 


Are there any pre-requisites to the Better Freestyle Swim Series? Yes, you must be able to swim freestyle one length of the pool, non-stop, without fins. If you cannot complete this pre-requisite, we recommend attending our Beginner Freestyle Swim Series (or going through it again) and/or booking a private swim session.

What is your approach to teaching how to improve freestyle? Our highly successful approach is to break down freestyle into parts – rhythmic breathing, body positioning, kick, arm cycle and rotation – so you can work on each one separately and understand how it can improve your freestyle. You will learn drills at each clinic that relate specifically to each part of freestyle you’re trying to improve. You’ll know what part you’re working on and why. Our approach is to decrease the overwhelm so you can learn quickly and easily. 

What if I miss one of the clinics during the series? Each clinic is set up with a warm up (drills from the prior week), drills of the week, and open practice time. The warm up portion consists of the drills from the prior week. If you miss a clinic, you will get a chance to work on those drills during the warm up. Then, during the open practice time, you can practice those drills and receive individual instruction. Additionally, you can access the swim videos detailing how to complete the drills. If you need further help, you can schedule a private swim session.

“Every thing was excellent! I would recommend to anyone that would like to learn or help to increase their freestyle swim!”

“Even though I have done a few triathlons and gone to multiple Alamo 180 swim workouts I still learned a lot. I was at first worried that the series would be beyond me, it wasn’t. There were tips and tricks that I needed to hear new and then some things from previous workouts I needed refreshing. Thanks so much!”
