How to Film:

In order to analyze your strokes, we need your swimming recorded on film. Here are the common angles we’d suggest for you to shoot from. All these angles, you can shoot from yourself or if you can recruit someone to help you film – that’d be even better.

Sending In your film:

Once you finish recording your video files, please send abbie@swimlikeafish.org access to those files either through Dropbox, GoogleDrive, or WeTransfer

Above Water Video Clips:

1.) Side View, Stationary Position

2.) Side View, Traveling

3.) Head On, Stationary Position 

 

Underwater Video Clips: 

1.) Side View, Stationary Position

2.) Head On, Stationary Position

3.) Side View, Traveling (only do this angle if you have or a friend has an extremely steady hand)

Please, shoot every video in landscape mode. Landscape mode helps compress the file into the software and makes it easier to see when reviewing.

Depends on the package, please read carefully the description of the package details you’re thinking of purchasing to see. All underwater footage is just supplementary and not required for any package – although if submitted, it will give us and you a much more thorough analysis.

Ideally, anywhere from :20 seconds to 3:00 minutes long.

The consult is set up between our Technique Coach, Abbie Fish, and the client. Scheduling of the consult is based off both Abbie’s and the client’s schedule. The consults are scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. Depending on Abbie’s work load, there may be a delay between purchase and consultation.

Anywhere from 2-3 weeks. Time depends on Abbie’s schedule. All analyses are done on a first come, first serve basis.

That is perfect. The underwater footage does not need to be of a specific distance.

No it does not. Anybody can benefit from getting their stroke analyzed. I encourage all non-competing masters swimmer or triathlete to get an analysis. Technique feedback helps reduce injury risk, increase your stroke efficiency, and helps you produce more power in the pool.

If you are a non-competing athlete, you can record races at practice. Just make sure if you buy the advanced package that your video clips are of a defined swimming distance though.
