Why is it that top triathletes and Olympians make swimming look so easy and effortless, while YOU struggle and work really hard?  


These athletes know a secret...and Coach Karlyn wants to share it with you!


It's pretty simple. Do LESS...get MORE. 


Karlyn Pipes offers Faster Freestyle workshops that are designed to help swimmers and triathletes discover the easy way to swim faster. Using simple and easy to understand drills and techniques, after just one session you will be a better swimmer!


This workshop begins the first hour in a classroom setting discussing past and present freestyle swim techniques. Students will then enter the water where Karlyn will begin with the basics: breathing, balance and body awareness. Karlyn will then gradually build into the step-by-step freestyle stroke progression that is designed to help YOU swim a faster and more efficient freestyle. 


Cost is $125 USD and space is limited. 


About: Karlyn was inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame in 2015 for setting over 230 FINA Masters World records. However, Karlyn is equally amazing as a stroke technique coach who loves helping swimmers of all ages and abilities learn how to swim faster with less effort.  For more about Karlyn and YouTube videos demonstrating her technique please visit or
