Receive Video Analysis
The video does not lie!
Although you are training to use your internal nervous system to correct your stroke and hold your best form, getting a periodic visual check-up is important for keeping those subjective senses calibrated.
Our video analysis will scan your body position and movement patterns to reveal your strengths and weaknesses and prescribe improvements according to our organizing principles – Balance, Streamline and Synchronized Propulsion – in that order of priority.
$50 when ordered with membership in a course.
$80 when ordered ala carte (without membership in a course).
We will talk together to agree upon a schedule for when you will be able to provide the video and when we will be able to deliver your report.
Video analysis is a powerful way to interpret your stroke through the TI lens to find your strengths and weaknesses and receive instruction to systematically improve those areas of highest priority.
Video analysis is suitable for those newly learning to swim, and those training in Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 skills.
Access to our training library.
Access to your Personal Discussion Zone where your video analysis report will be published, and where you may ask questions and discuss the results and instruction with your coach.
We will give you our best with the video you provide. But please aim for these standards:
- Take some practice shots first to make sure you get the intended view
- Capture the full body in the video frame
- Keep the camera very stable
- Keep lighting behind the camera so that swimmer is illuminated (rather than put into silhouette). Have camera between swimmer and windows with outside light, or underwater lights.
- Capture 8 to 12 whole strokes in sequence for each view
- Swim with the stroke intensity that you want analyzed, appropriate to the event you are training for (we need to see the real you!)
Most important viewpoints to shoot:
- Underwater side view
- Surface side view
- Underwater front view
- Surface front view
- Top view
- Underwater rear view (to see more of your kicking pattern)
If possible, please save your video to .mov or .mp4 file format at 720p (1280×720 px) or less size.
Some times there are errors in the video file or format provided. We’ll let you know if we run into problems getting the video loaded.
