The vast majority of competitive swimmers are in serious need of concentrated start and stroke work. It should be an ongoing process that continues throughout their swimming careers. Skills are never permanent and require constant attention and refinement. At Peak Performance Swim Camp, we offer a variety of impactful techniques and skill progressions that dramatically improve start and stroke techniques. The techniques taught are extremely adaptable meaning swimmers can continue to use them upon returning to their home pools.

CAMP EXTRAS

COACH BAKER'S INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS:

1992 Olympic Coach Nick Baker has created an outstanding video series for swimmers looking to improve their technical and physical performance. There’s no better teaching tool than visual aides to effectively demonstrate and practice these skills!

Yoga for Peak Performance: 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, led by professional instructors Theresa and Calvin of College Park Yoga, offers a series of effective yoga postures designed to relax the body and enhance flexibility in as little as 15 minutes a day! Price: $65.00

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 Training 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. It’s the perfect fit for motivated swimmers on the move! Format: Stream video online. 82 minutes. Price: $85.00

PEAK Refresher 2.0: The PEAK Refresher 2.0 video, produced by 1992 Olympic Coach Nick Baker, builds on the fundamentals of Refresher 1.0 and introduces many elite-level skills not available on other swimming videos. The multiple and innovative camera angles take learning to a whole new level. The skills presented in this video are guaranteed to boost swimming performance! Format: Stream video online. 59 minutes. Price: $115.00

PEAK Refresher 1.0: The PEAK Refresher 1.0 is a state-of-the-art video also produced by 1992 Olympic Coach Nick Baker. It vividly illustrates key elements of the front, back, and relay start, along with the four strokes and turns. The step-by-step format greatly enhances learning. Format: Stream video online. 44 minutes.

PEAK Refresher Combo Package: Purchase the PEAK Refresher 2.0 video AND receive the PEAK Refresher 1.0 at half price ($75 value)!

    Thank you!

    Before I came to see you I hadn't come close to my best time in over a year. Although my best time was a 1:06.88, the closest I came was 1:14.52. My coach couldn't figure out what to do. I spent two hours with you and I went 1:05.71 at States!

    Wonderful camp!

    Thank you again for a wonderful camp. All your work planning and organizing the camp, and keeping everything running smoothly during the camp is greatly appreciated. The kids are doing awesome. First competition after camp and we are seeing great drops. Kate dropped .5 secs on her 50's in breast and free, 5 secs in the 200 IM and 3 in the 200 breast. Ty dropped .5 secs in the 50 fly and free, 8 secs in her 200 IM and 7 secs in her 100 back. The last two times are new TAGS times for her, TX State qualifying times are extremely fast. We are in Midland, TX at a meet and I can't wait to see them swim three more events today.

    We will definitely be coming back!

    My daughter attended the camp in Westchester over the long weekend and LOVED it. She said the work was hard but good and the instruction great, because “they show us what to do, not just tell us.” We will definitely be coming back!

    very time the camps seem to get better!

    I wish to express how truly grateful I am for the past couple of years. I owe any ounce of technique and mental tips to you, Coach Nick.  From the first time I stepped foot at your camp until now, I feel like there has been a huge change in my maturity level and focus, and most of that is due to Peak Performance camps.  That is why I keep coming back…and every time the camps seem to get better and better.
