Yoga for Peak Performance Video: NEW! The more flexible the swimmer, the greater the speed! And yoga is the perfect way for swimmers to increase their flexibility. Greater flexibility in the shoulders, chest, hips, and ankles allows the body to generate more propulsion and flow through the water with minimal drag and greater ease. The Yoga For Peak Performance video offers a series of effective yoga postures designed to relax the body and enhance flexibility in as little as 15 minutes a day! The video is available to stream online and your login info is sent to you via email at the conclusion of camp.
PEAK Refresher 2.0 Video: NEW! This one-of-a-kind video is a tremendous visual aid that compliments the technical components learned in camp and is the perfect refresher for your swimmer year round!

The video is available to stream online and your login info is sent to you via email at the conclusion of camp.
PEAK OUT! Dry-Land Video: Swimming alone cannot develop the strength, flexibility, agility, or coordination needed to perform at the elite-level. The PEAK OUT! Dry-Land video targets these all-important physical traits – giving swimmers a clear, competitive edge! The five, high-energy training circuits demonstrated in the video can be performed away from the pool and require no equipment. The video is available to stream online and your login info is sent to you via email at the conclusion of camp.
