To use this service you will require your own Skype account (free).
Adam Walker provides a guidance service where he can offer his advice or motivational support online via Skype. This is more of a chat or q&a session. There is no video/stroke analysis as part of this session. Advice on training, how to arrange a channel swim, motivation before a swim challenge etc.
Adam Walkers advice and support is given to the best of his knowledge, the session is 1 hour and there is no information gathering from our side prior to the session other than the question form upon booking.

This is not a form of therapy, we would advise that if you require support in this area to contact a qualified therapist.
The advice and support provided by Adam Walker on this session will allow you to ascertain what you can apply to your particular situation safely and within your own ability and limitations. It is your responsibility whether you act upon any advice given or not.

The information below is for your own safety, so that you may enjoy your experience with our online training, whilst understanding the risks that may be encountered as part of swimming in pool or open water.
Understanding the Risks:
All swimmers agree to practice drills given and swim at entirely their own risk. As you have chosen an online program, our qualified Ocean Walker Technique coaches are not able to be by your side to ensure you are practicing drills correctly and safely as they would in a lesson or swim camp.
The online program is a great way to further your development in swimming, but we would always recommend that where possible you attend a lesson in person or join us on a swim camp so that our qualified coaches can ensure you are positioning yourself correctly in the water.
Some of our drills involve holding your breath underwater. Please make sure that if you are not using a public pool with access to a lifeguard, that you have someone overseeing your practice to ensure your safety.
In the unlikely event of injury, accident, loss or damaged suffered, however it may be caused, no responsibility whatsoever will be attached to Adam Walker or Ocean Walker Ltd.
In the swimming pool:
A heated swimming pool is recommended to begin your practice.
Appropriate swimwear should be worn for your safety and protection based on where you choose to swim.
Due to the length of time you spend immersed in water, even using an indoor heated swimming pool, there are times when the temperature is ‘not as warm as we would like’. When using an outdoor swimming pool, you have the weather to take into consideration also. Whether you are inside or outdoors, we always recommend the use of a rash vest or swim top, to protect your skin from the sun, as well as providing a little extra warmth when needed. Whether you wear one or not is your choice.
In open water:
If you are a complete beginner then we do not advise you try open water until you have attended a course/camp/lesson in person/organised session for your first dip.
Early drills are best practiced in a swimming pool.
Ocean Walker accept no responsibility for decisions you make while swimming in open water when not under our supervision on a swim camp or 1-1 lesson in person.
