Shared Lessons: Reinforce great swimming habits with a partner

DJ and RickWhy not share lesson time with a training partner? Some of our biggest success stories come from training partners who shared their StrokeDoctor lessons. In your shared lessons you'll learn exactly what you need to do to improve. And as you practice between lessons you'll reinforce your lessons by teaching each other, giving you a "home" coach and a StrokeDoctor coach. That's a powerful dynamic guaranteed to make each lesson stick!

Five lessons / $275 per swimmer
