  Swim Technique Clinics

How would YOU like to swim faster with less effort?

The goal of every AQUATIC EDGE swim clinic
is to have people say...

"This stroke makes total sense! After just one clinic I feel faster and I know I am spending less energy...this is HUGE!"

Karlyn travels the WORLD hosting over 70+ clinics and camps yearly. Why not host a clinic at YOUR POOL???

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, 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! Itís 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!

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