Total Immersion Open Water Swim Camp
Penticton, British Columbia
Home of the 2017 ITU World Triathlon and Multisport Festival
This camp is designed for beginner and intermediate swimmers seeking Total Immersion instruction in the open water. Our philosophy is Kaizen swimming; creating continuous improvement by setting your intention to improve one swim skill at each session.
This is a technique-focused camp, teaching you to swim in open water with greater ease and flow, which allows you to swim long distances utilizing thousands of effortless uninterrupted strokes. Our camp is perfect for triathletes seeking to exit the water fresh and ready for the bike.
The Total Immersion Effortless Endurance – Level 1 workshop and Smart Speed Workshop – Level 2 is integrated with an open water workshop to give you an intense 3 day program.
It is highly recommended that attendees be able to swim 400 yards/meters comfortably to obtain the greatest benefit from this open water experience and have some familiarity with the Total Immersion drill sequence using balance, streamline, and propulsion.
Penticton is located in the Okanagan Valley region of British Columbia and has been the host city of Ironman Canada for 30 years. With over 2100 hours of sunshine annually and average temperatures in the summer of 26°C to 34°C plan on great weather!
