The biggest breakthrough in my swimming came in early 2016, when Tim Reed
recommended I visit Gemma Hollis, a Swim Smooth
certified coach, who had recently moved to The Woodlands from Singapore. Hollis owns and operates Push Glide Kick
which provides private swim instruction and video analysis. I figured since I was spending a sizable chunk of time in the pool, I might as well try and ensure I was swimming properly.
I was blown away by the simple yet effective advice Hollis provided through verbal pointers and video analysis of my stroke. I was able to keep those video files and refer back to them when I felt bad habits returning. For a small monthly fee, I was also able to access a library of Swim Smooth’s workout sessions, training plans and technique and drill videos, including videos dissecting the strokes of elite swimmers from pool, open water and triathlon. Jodie Cunnama, Harry Whiltshire, Lucy Charles and Richard Varga to name a few. All have taken their share of swim primes over the years!
