Camp Extras

Peak Performance Swim Camp offers a number of unique performance-enhancing extras. These may be purchased in advance with camp registration or onsite at camp.

PEAK Refresher 2.0 Video: 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 PEAK Refresher 2.0 video, produced by Olympic Coach Nick Baker, introduces many elite-level skills not available on other swimming videos and is guaranteed to boost swimming performance!

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.

Yoga for Peak Performance Video: 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 Swimming Triangle Book: Coach Nick Baker’s most popular book is an innovative and essential guide to achieving superior mental, technical, and physical fitness in one of the world’s greatest sports. Coach Baker’s wholly integrated approach can help you maximize your true potential for gaining and keeping a competitive edge!

In The Know, A Swim Parent’s Guide Book: Coach Nick Baker shares pearls of wisdom gleaned from coaching for more than forty years and provides parents with essential inside swimming knowledge geared to maximizing their child’s swimming experience. Coach Baker sheds light on many unanswered questions parents have about swimming, and guides them in making the right decisions for their child.

101 Winning Ways Book: Written by Olympic Coach Nick Baker, this motivational book identifies 101 winning attitudes common to all great, world-class swimmers. Each winning attitude is described with an easy-to-remember phrase and simple imagery to enhance visualization. It’s a must-read for swimmers of all ages!

Un-Limit Yourself! Book: Olympic Coach Nick Baker has dedicated this book to serious swimmers striving for peak performance. This tremendous how-to pocket guide identifies 17 limiting factors that handicap swimming performance and how to overcome them. If identified early, these factors are within the swimmer’s power to change!

Are You Worth It? Book: Olympic Coach Nick Baker has added another gem to his motivational Swimmer Series. Among all the factors that determine success in goal setting, self-worth is the single most influential. You must first feel important before you can achieve important things in your swimming life. This superb book teaches how to build that feeling and find the inner “magic” that lies within you.

Mind Body Skill Book:. Coach Baker challenges swimmers to create change in a BIG WAY to achieve the results they desire! A swimmer who improves their mental outlook can enhance their level of swimming performance to one degree or another. The same holds true for technique and fitness. But when a swimmer focuses on boosting all three at once, the paradigm shifts and EXCELLENCE happens!

VIDEOS purchased with camp registration are available to stream online; and your login info is sent to you via email at the conclusion of camp. BOOKS purchased with camp registration will be distributed at Camp Check-In.
