Hi @CrazyMe that’s a good question! Swimming you can start at any skill level and at any time. However, learning the fundamentals of balance are key for anyone starting out. In summary, getting comfortable with gliding, floating with your body extended (with your neck relaxed), and relaxing your breathing while just being in the water are the best practices to start with. However, stay tuned as I will be covering content related to getting you started on the right path. I’m happy you are interested in making swimming a part of your training it’s only up from here! - Coach M

Is there a difference between the stroke in freestyle for man and women or is it exactly the same? Just wondering :-)

Hi @Heidiforever actually this is another great question. The form and technique is the same for both men and women, however, there is a balance difference based on body type. For example, men tend to have lower profiles in the water (legs drop lower) while women have higher profiles. One is not better than the other just the priorities of how to swim within a small profile are shifted based on body type. I’ll explain this concept in more detail in future videos. 🙌🏽😄 -Coach Mandy
