TI™ Level 3.0 Smart Speed

What is Smart Speed?

Swim Faster, Not Harder!

Achieve 'pace mastery' and goal achievement by learning how to:

  • scale your whole stroke intelligently
  • make adaptations to your stroke with pace variations
  • understand and apply swimming 'gears' - the application of different combinations of SPL (stroke length) and Tempo, that lead to swimming 'gears' and hence 'easy speed'


New Program dates coming soon!

Pre-req: Swimmers must be able to swim 400m continuous and unaided, with SPL close to or within Optimal Range.

All swimmers require a Finis Tempo Trainer for this program.


You get:

  • Weekly training sessions
  • Tempo trainer practice guide
  • 24/7 support during the duration of the program
  • Online Community
  • 1 under water video analysis

This is program will broaden your swimming IQ and challenge you to apply advanced skills; moving your focus away from 'the pace clock' and the single metric of end result 'time'.  Understanding the following equation, and how to apply skills to achieve your best in any given swim task or competition. 

Stroke Length (SPL) x Tempo (secs per stroke) = Velocity

This program is a follow up of the Total Immersion 1.0 Effortless Endurance program. Learn how to turn your foundation skills into improved ' pace holding ability' with SMART sets that include a wide variety of variable's other than 'the clock'.

Each session we will cover approx 2km of sets based on problem solving challenges,
