ABILITY LEVEL: Suitable for complete beginners to advanced!


Please advise us of any medical conditions or injuries past or present and specific dietary requirements. If neither apply, please write n/a in the required field.

A great way to learn the Ocean Walker Technique and also to progress your swimming further if you have seen us before!

The 1 Day Masterclass
In a small group this course will take you through the 5 stages that build up to the Ocean Walker Technique. These stages (or drills) will show you how to position your body to be efficient in the water, help prevent injury and to swim faster for longer.
The day is made up of 2 x swim sessions in the pool. Adam will give live demos of his stroke and explain the benefits of his swimming style, guiding you individually and in turn, which is filmed for the video analysis later. After each swim session we review your videos. In the video analysis sessions we will playback your swim footage and Adam will analyse each persons videos individually with the group including a comparison of your swim at the beginning of the day and the end of the session.

The 2 Day Masterclass
The first day of a 2 day masterclass will follow the same structure as a 1 day masterclass (detailed above). The first day takes you through the stages and gives you the mechanics. The second day knits this together and this is when we can make progress with timing, speed, breathing technique and even sighting technique. Having that second day really does help you to master the movements, having time to practice what you learned on day one, and then move it onto the next level.

With both types of masterclass we will move you forward as an individual, even though this is a group session, everyone will learn at a different pace, so if you need extra time spend in one area we will spend that time with you. If you have mastered a stage quickly we will move you on faster. This is why the masterclasses are suitable for any level or ability of swimmer.

  1. Ivan Schofield

    Brilliant day at Chelsea in March 2016. I came away with a new enthusiasm and passion for swimming having recently become frustrated with my lack of progress. Immediate results on the day reduced from 17/18 strokes per 25m to 15 … and then 14 during my first session after the camp! Still much work to do but the camp gave me a clear framework for self diagnosis of problems. Thanks Adam and Gemma for an inspiring day

  2. Justin B

    This course was a lot of fun and very instructive. It was well organised and intelligently constructed. I achieved my own goal of learning the Ocean Walker stroke which will become more fluent for me with practice. There’s ton’s of feedback in the pool and via video. Adam and Gemma have clearly put in a huge amount of work in making a gentle learning curve from the elements to the full Ocean Walker stroke. Thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants to swim more efficiently.

  3. Andrew T

    An excellent day in London, having tried various other swimming styles and coaches I was intrigued to see what the Ocean Walker technique was all about – I was not disappointed. It’s still very early days for me but if you’re serious about improving your swim efficiency and speed then I’d highly recommend this.
    The day itself was well structured and great fun with a good balance between practical pool time and theory.

  4. Barbara

    It was a brilliant day in London, thank you very much Adam and Gemma. Now it‘s hard work in training and doing the drills.

  5. Domenico D

    A truly special day at the Chelsea Center! Adam and the other instructors taught us this innovative technique with passion and professionalism. The results can be seen immediately in the style change of the swim!
    Thank you for your commitment and passion in organizing the Swim Camp!
    Everything was perfect and I enjoyed it a lot!

    I have just finished a 1 day camp with Adam,Gemma and Ian. I went in with no idea what to expect,and fairly anxious. What a wonderful experience it was,with laughter from everyone,a mountain of information to process(still processing),and the foundation of a stroke,that will stand me in good stead for the rest of my life,if I practise and cement the foundation. AND it makes sense to my OCD brain!!.Thank you for a great day and the building blocks you gave me. I hope to get the chance to follow up with one of you when I can. Recommend to everyone out there.

  7. Tim Bird

    Great fully immersive day with Adam and Gemma. Their enthusiasm was infectious and seeing the technique in practice had us all converted instantly. I haven’t mastered the new stroke yet but after finishing a 14k swim yesterday with aching shoulders I am convinced this is the way to go. Just need to keep practicing and having the video links afterwards is very effective. I will be back next year.

  8. Roger T

    What a day, you guys put in so much hard work for everyone attending, no short cuts, loads of time spent on each of us,making sure I have everything i need to refine what I learned, i’m so excited to put everything i’ve learnt into practice. I hope to do a catch up in a few months.

  9. Zoe

    I attended the 1 day masterclass at Chelsea Health Club and Spa which was run by Adam, Gemma and Jim. It was brilliant. You were all so friendly and approachable which meant it was easy to ask questions. There was so much teaching and I learnt so much, halving the number of strokes I swim in just one day. I can’t wait to start practising and will definitely come back for another class. I would love to go to Turkey but the dates are not possible for May 2020 but I will come to a swim camp. I can’t wait to learn more . The video is great too. It was an excellent day – thank you all very much.

  10. Simon Jordan

    Just spent a day with Adam and absolutely fantastic. I’m amazed at how his unique style works. Once you get your head around it you can see how brilliant it is and how much smoother and quicker you will be.
    I can’t recommend Adam’s swim camps enough.
    Go do it
