Swim Lessons

Hi All, I'm currently training for triathlons and feel like I need to work on my swimming. Can swim up to 3000 metres in the pool and 1500m open water. Does anyone know of swimming lessons where they can bring you to the next level? I went to someone last week and they told me I don't need lessons. Thanks

sounds like you need a coach and structured sets and sessions for interval improvement, not lessons or stroke correction.

Your local swim club may have a masters squad or a coach with some distance experience....

Swimming fastest by Ernest Maglischo is like a bible for the small points and features of the strokes. Championship Swim Training by Bill Sweetenham has some excellent season plan and session plan theory in there. To be honest if you get stuck into those two books and swim with a squad you'll achieve whatever you want to.
