  Swim Technique Clinics


Karlyn would love to share with you the secrets to swimming faster. There is no need to spend a whole weekend or $500 to improve your stroke, Karlyn can teach you how to swim faster with less effort in just one clinic.

Click here to read a recent article written by noted triathlon coach and author Marc Evans about the technique she teaches.

Karlyn travels the WORLD hosting over 70+ clinics and camps yearly. Here is what people are saying about their experience at an Aquatic Edge clinic.

Karlyn is the absolute best at analyzing swim technique, providing feedback, and helping us truly improve our swimming. She makes it fun and we get faster!
-Pro Triathletes Mike and Amanda Lovato, 2010

"I took the Aquatic Edge clinic in San Diego last year. This clinic made a HUGE difference
in my swimming efficiency. I felt faster immediately!"
- Pro Triathlete Kate Major, 1st at the 2010 70.3 Rhode Island, 2nd at IM Australia in 2008, 3rd at the 2007 World Ironman Championships KONA, Hawaii.

Hi Karlyn,
I thought I'd let you know how effective your technique has been for me recently. Despite the flak I've been getting from conventional swim coaches it was clear that the technique you taught me was convincingly effective during a rough sea swim, a third of which was against the tide.
- Chris, London, UK May, 2012

Hi Karlyn, Thanks for your clinic. It has been a breakthrough for me. I'm now between 10 and 20 seconds per 100m quicker in the pool than before! It’s given me back the time I need in an Ironman distance swim to be competitive in my age group.

This past weekend I swam with Susie my wife in the ocean and for the first time ever we were able to swim together (i.e. without me getting dropped :)

Thanks again.
- Robin, Brisbane AUS 2009

Aloha Karlyn,
I just wanted to let you know how much your seminar has helped my swimming. My times continue to drop and swimming is much more fun! One month after taking your clinic I dropped 15 seconds in my 200 free! Amazing! Thanks!
- Therese 2009

Bob Boder, Head Masters Coach and Aquatics Director Charles River YMCA, Needham MA
