A Holistic Approach To Competitive Swimming

In order for a swimmer to realize their full swimming potential they must be mentally, technically and physically fit. Contrary to popular belief, physical fitness by itself is not enough. A swimmer must also possess a high degree of mental and technical fitness.

At Peak Performance we pride ourselves in offering a balance between physical, technical and mental training. Referring to the chart below Peak 1 offers a 75/25 blend of physical and technical conditioning while our Peak 2 offers a 50/50 blend of physical and technical conditioning and Peak 3 offers a 25/75 blend of physical and technical conditioning.  In addition, this camp offers an in-depth mental conditioning curriculum designed to enhance a swimmer's self-esteem, develop focus skills and improve the ability to perform in stressful situations.

PEAK 1:

Open to swimmers ages 11-18 who train 5,000 yards/meters (or greater) per practice.
 
PEAK 1 is our most challenging camp. It is well suited for accomplished senior-level swimmers and elite-level age group swimmers. Participants must be mentally, technically, and physically prepared to endure the rigors of 4.5 hours of in water training per day plus 1 hour of dry land training per day. Approximately 75% of the total pool time is dedicated to physical conditioning, however all sets include significant technical expectations.
 
Rather than offer a series of generic training sets, each practice is created to reflect the group's needs and talent level. In addition, we do not condone garbage yardage or mindless meters. Each lap of practice must have purpose!
 
Note: Peak 1 is not well suited for swimmers with swimming related injuries.
 
All-together PEAK 1 includes: 9 challenging in-water training sessions, 4 dry-land training sessions, 2 yoga sessions, and 2-3 mental conditioning sessions.
 
Check-in
Check-in will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. on June 30 at the LiveWell Fitness-National Training Center.

PEAK 2:

Open to swimmers ages 8-18 who train between 3,000 to 5,000 yards/meters per practice.

Participants must possess the maturity and discipline to handle 4.5 hours of in water training per day plus 1 hour of dry land training per day. In addition, they must exhibit a high degree of physical fitness and technical competency. Participants must be able to perform all four competitive strokes and turns and the three competitive starts (front, back, relay).

Waiting for years!

We have been waiting years for Gavin to be able to attend a Peak camp. We can't wait to see how it improves his team practice, and he's ready to go back to another camp!

Amazing!

You are an amazing coach and have a terrific way with kids. We were so lucky to have found you. We’ve tried all the other camps but none compare. It’s true that your camp cost more but no camp compares. I think it’s a terrific value for the money. My son is a different person now. His attitude changed overnight and to me that’s priceless. You worked as much on his mind as you did his technique. He’s leading his lane in practice and has now set his mind on qualifying for Junior Nationals this summer. We’ll keep you posted and look forward to another trip to Orlando this summer.
