What We Do
We offer swim coaching for adults between the ages of 18 and 80+. We cater to every ability level you can imagine – from total novice to professional triathlete at the beautiful Vaughan Athletic Center Pool in Aurora, IL. Additional pool locations and squads coming soon.
We coach triathletes, pool and open water swimmers without bias, unless of course you are a breast-stroker then you might be subject to a little heckling here and there.
In addition to our 3-6x weekly sessions that cover all your training needs for any event, we offer our premium 1-2-1 Video Analysis and Stroke Correction Sessions for those requiring a little special individual attention for their stoke technique. These sessions regularly book at least a month in advance.
Who We Are
We are Swim Smooth – the worlds leading authority in adult swim coaching! Sound a little ostentatious? We don’t mind blowing our own horn about it! The International Triathlon Union (ITU) has partnered with us to re-write their entire swim coaching program and train their coaches. That’s pretty cool!
This swim philosophy is the brainchild of Head Coach Paul Newsome over in Perth Australia in 2004. Paul personally coaches the majority of the squad sessions himself and our own Coach Stacee has studied with him since 2012.
What We Believe
We believe that each swimmer is unique and an individual. The Swim Types coaching style recognizes that we are all build differently and come from different swim backgrounds. Therefore no cookie cutter or one size fits all programs here. Every drill, session and analysis has a specific purpose to improve your technique or build your specific swim fitness. No garbage workouts or fluff here. Just focuses driven and progressive training that produces measurable results.
Our Swim Types system allows our coaches to work out exactly what stroke technique suggestion and what training volume / frequency / intensity is right for you – not only that, we know how to communicate that with you better than any other swim coaching program you will find. In short, if you consider individuality important and like the notion that you will always be addressed by your own name not “you over there!” then you’re onto a winner with us!
