Event Description

Why is it that top triathletes and Olympians make swimming look so easy and effortless, while YOU struggle and work really hard?  

These athletes know a secret...and I want to share it with you!

It's pretty simple. Do LESS...get MORE. 

Karlyn Pipes offers Faster Freestyle workshops that are designed to help swimmers and triathletes discover the easy way to swim faster. Using simple and easy to understand drills and techniques, after just one session you will be a better swimmer!

This workshop begins the first hour in a classroom setting discussing past and present freestyle swim techniques. Students will then enter the water where Karlyn will begin with the basics: breathing, balance and body awareness. Karlyn will then gradually build into the step-by-step freestyle stroke progression that is designed to help YOU swim a faster and more efficient freestyle. Cost is $95. Hurry, space is limited. 

About: Karlyn was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2015 for setting over 233 FINA Masters World records. However, Karlyn is equally amazing as a stroke technique coach who loves helping swimmers of all ages and abilities learn how to swim faster with less effort.  For more about Karlyn and YouTube videos demonstrating her technique please visit or

Here are some suggestions to help prepare for this event:

IMPORTANT! If you get cold easily, please consider bringing your wetsuit. I try to find the warmest pool available but even in 82-degree water, you may get cold. Even if you do not wear it, it is nice to have the wetsuit as an option.

Arrive early: Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the clinic. If you have never been to this pool, please allow even more time due to traffic, getting lost etc.

What to bring: An open mind, water bottle, snacks, towels, goggles. If you get cold easy be SURE TO BRING YOUR WETSUIT. You do NOT need equipment such as paddles, kickboards or buoys, but fins are ok.
