At Triscape we’re all about inspiring you to take on your next swimming challenge. That means breaking down the barriers that are stopping you from either learning to swim, or learning how to get better at swimming. 

Although there’s loads of information out there about things you can do to improve your technique, it can be difficult – and confusing – to work out where to start. That’s where we come in! 

David and I get asked for swimming tips all the time – it turns out there are a lot of you who want to feel more confident, whether you’re swimming in your local pool or in the open water. So what we did was reverse-engineer our strokes to figure out what we were doing as Olympians that made us better swimmers. It came down to one thing: efficiency.

With that in mind, we developed a method we call straight-line swimming. It’s the most efficient way of getting from A to B in the water, and also the easiest. We’ve designed it to help you save time and energy in the water – that’s how Olympians get to the top of their game, and it can help you reach your potential in exactly the same way. 

Straight-line swimming is based around three fundamental things – breathing, body position and propulsion through the water. If you get those right, everything else will follow. You’ll find a rhythm, and your stroke will become much more streamlined. 

Once you get the hang of it, your swimming goal will feel so much more achievable, whether you just want to get more comfortable doing lengths or are training for an event like a triathlon. 

In the next post, I’ll break straight-line swimming down into the essentials, and show you just how easy they are to incorporate into your stroke. 

Ready? Let’s start getting you set for your next swimming challenge.
