Swim POP

Are you a triathlete wanting to improve your freestyle for your next race? Or a high school/collegiate swimmer looking to prevent injury during the swim season? Our two-hour Swim POP (Performance Optimization Program) is a multi-dimensional approach to improve your performance while preventing injury. Our trained therapists will perform a comprehensive biomechanical evaluation to help you identify your problem areas (weakness, inflexibility, postural imbalances) and provide solutions in and out of the water.

A HD multi-angle camera is utilized to evaluate your stroke technique in the water and you'll learn dry-land exercises to address your musculoskeletal deficits along with added form drills. You will leave with videos of your swim stroke to share with your coaches.

  • Speed - adjustments will improve endurance and speed

  • Comfort - our physical therapist will address adjustments to relieve shoulder pain, neck pain, back

Testimonial Spotlight

This was super helpful. My coach has talked to me about my elbow/arm drop on whichever side I'm not breathing at the time, and I even took the Karlin Pipes clinic over the summer, but it's hard to visualize when it feels like I'm keeping my elbow up -- and of course if I try to keep my head down to look at it, I'm not replicating the rotation I guess caused by my breathing. So seeing how far down things are in the water is really interesting and useful. And the different angles are good, too, the way you have both the side and front/back views.” — Cindy

“Just got back from the pool. Thanks to my new and improved catch, my threshold pace improved (10%) from 1:35-ish/100 in 1:30-ish. I just need 5 or 6 more seconds to get where I want to be. I think I can get at least half of that through improved ankle mobility, hence a more efficient kick. Your tips are paying off!” — Matt Fitgerald, author and endurance athlete
