WHAT IS SWIM DOCTOR?

Here at Better, our Swim Doctors can help you reach your swimming goals with free advice on how to improve your technique and fitness level, as well as providing tips on how to stay motivated.

With pool inductions, one on one consultations and fitness-based swimming sessions available, everything you need to get started is right here.

 

TAKING THE PLUNGE - 3 STEPS TO BETTER SWIMMING

1. Pool Inductions

Your swimming journey at Better starts with a pool induction with one of our expert Swim Doctors. They will help guide your through our facilities, explain everything we have to offer and ensure your experience is stress free.  Our pool inductions are open to everyone and depending on your experience we can either include a full induction of the facility, or if you're eager to get started we can jump right in.

2. Refocus & Technique Clinics

Whether you're a first timer or returning to swimming after a period of time out, it can be quite daunting for most of us.  Our Swim Doctors can help you focus on what you want to achieve, by assessing what's going well in the water or what could be improved and determine a plan to reinvigorate your sessions.

We offer technique and fitness clinics, these are designed to help you become a more efficient, faster swimmer. Clinics either focus on breaking down your stroke and technique or pure fitness swimming. Both clinics also involve pre and post workout discussions on the best ways to help you improve and stay on track.

3. Activation & Advice

We want to make sure that you can access expert advice on swimming techniques and fitness as often and as easily as possible, so not only do we offer our Pool Inductions and Clinics, you will find free swimming session cards on poolside or from reception at your local centre to offer some additional guidance. Our expert Swim Doctors will also host monthly drop-in sessions and annual masterclasses that everyone can attend and be part of at your centre.

SWIM DOCTOR MASTERCLASSES WITH KERI-ANNE PAYNE

Here at Better, we run a number of Swim Doctor Masterclasses, facilitated by our new Fitness Swimming Ambassador, Keri-Anne Payne. An Olympic silver medallist and two-time world 10km open water swimming champion, Keri-Anne works alongside us to develop these classes and provide first hand expert advice on the day, as well as hints and tips on how you can perfect your swimming technique going forward.

Keri-Anne added, "I'm more than just a face to the programme, I will be involved.  Part of the activation and launch of this product will be the Masterclass Roadshow which we will be delivering from now until the end of this year at a number of centres.  I do all my coaching at Better venues and want to be seen as available to all, I'm not just the face of a campaign.  Every member can get access to a hands on personal experience, be it through one-on-one sessions or through the masterclasses".

SUCCESS STORIES

We have had an overwhelmingly positive response to the masterclasses that have already taken place.  Below is some of the feedback we have recieved so far...

 

I wanted tell you how much I enjoyed the swimming masterclass today.  We often come to Oasis club for a relaxing swim and always thought it would be great to get swimming lessons. Coming today to find pro swimmers like Keri-Anne trying to improve our technique was amazing. And the fact that it happened randomly on my birthday was awesome too! The perfect birthday present!! Thank you!
