Frequently Asked Questions about the Swim Coaching

Should I be able to swim when I start the Swim Coaching?

Depending on the goals you have, it will definitely help if you can already swim a few lengths confidently (any style!). But even as an absolute beginner you’ll benefit from a Personal Swim Coaching and I’ll explain to you in detail how to move effortlessly and efficiently in the water.


Where can I do a Swim Coaching with you in Berlin?

We can use the public pools (Berliner Bäder) in the South-West of Berlin, depending on their capacity. This is where I do my own training as well, so I know those pools inside out. The lakes in the South-West (Schlachtensee, Krumme Lanke) are a good option as well if you want to gain open water experience.

On request, we can also do the Personal Swim Coaching sessions in pools that are further away from my office, e.g. the SSE near Landsberger Allee, or we can work with videos of you swimming in a completely different pool, for example if you live in a different city or outside of Germany.


How long until something changes/improves?

Of course, that really depends on what you want to change. When we optimize your technique, you’ll feel taht right on the spot. For the training effect of workouts to catch on, that usually takes 2 to 4 weeks. You’ll also quickly notice changes in your body composition – maybe that’s one of your goals as well?


How often per week should I do a Personal Swim Coaching with you?

As often as you can and want to! For a good start, the minimum is one session per week, so that I can check your swimming technique regularly. On top of that, you should do a second swim workout per week with me or on your own if you really want to get somewhere. Anything beyond that is really ambitious and takes time to establish in terms of volume.


Can I do a Swim Coaching even without access to a swimming pool?

Yes, that’s possible actually. With the Performance Training in my LSS Concept we’ll cover precisely this topic. If you want to learn more, you can have a look at this blog article (written in German). Certain things, for example the feel fort he water, can only be trained in the pool. But Performance Training is a great alternative for those days where you can’t make it to the pool.


Which swimming style is the best?

Butterfly! Just kidding. The best style is the one you’re comfortable with. However, it doesn’t hurt to have different swimming styles in your toolbox to vary your workouts. I prefer freestyle, backstroke and butterfly – those are the stylest hat I teach in my Swim Coaching. Breaststroke bears a bit of a risk. If you want to know why, send me an e-mail and I’ll tell you more.


And now let's start your Swim Coaching and hit the pool!
