the endless pool
We are based at Coombs Wood Park, Halesowen, Birmingham. Located in the heart of the West Midlands , (just 2 mins from J2 &3 of the M5) Swimgainz is ideally situated to welcome anyone locally or from further afield wishing to further their swimming experience.
With a top end speed of 63 seconds per 100 meters, Swimgainz high performance endless pool offers the facility to be bespoke to each individual swimmer and their development. Using a state of the art camera system located both in and out the pool the swimmer will enjoy real time video analysis and instant feedback as well as continual communication through our wireless, bone conduction head sets .
After your training session, you will leave with a copy of your swimming videos, and a clear summary of your key focus areas.
Common faults we can help you fix:
low lying legs
Sinking legs when swimming freestyle is usually due to a number of differing factors such as
- a weak core, your head position or even your breath contol.
With our video analysis we will be able to correct your body positioning.
Correct breathing technique is vital to maintain a good body alignment whilst swimming.
Whether you want to practice your open water sighting or bilateral breathing, using our endless pool is a perfect opportunity to focus on this one important aspect whilst swimming in one place.
We often get many questions regarding the arm position especially during freestyle. Some common faults are - early entry, short finish or dropping the elbow position.
Swimming technique in all stokes takes time and practice to hone your skills. Using the endless pool and video analysis you will be able to see it clearly for yourself and instantly act on our guidance.
Body roll is the big one when it comes to causing swimmer’s shoulder injury. For example, too much body roll can cause the hand to drift across the mid-line during entry, placing the shoulder at a disadvantage.
If this sounds like a typical problem for you, then our video analysis along with our guidance might be a great way to help you see what needs to change and prevent any typical shoulder injuries.
