The endless pool is part of Tri-PT Studio for a few months now, dozens of swimmers have been able to improve their technique during this time. Right now, when it’s not exactly swimming weather, it can be useful to improve your technique. This way you have an advantage over the other swimmers and triathletes when the season starts again. But how does that work, an endless pool? This article describes step by step what a swim analysis looks like in practice.
1. Contact Tri-PT Studio for an appointment
Step 1 is to make an appointment at Tri-PT Studio. This is easily done via telephone, WhatsApp or e-mail. It is also possible to make the appointment physically when the studio is visited, so you immediately get a picture of our endless pool.

2. Preparation for the swim analysis
The appointment has been made, now the preparation for the swim analysis can begin! For many athletes it is reassuring to know that they do not need to prepare physically. We get the best result of the analysis when a swimmer swims “normally”. That is why you can achieve the most results.
In terms of supplies can be prepared. For example, it is useful to take the following:
- Diving mask
- Nose clip
Some of these attributes (snorkel, diving mask, nose clip, zoomers) are also present in the studio, which can be used by swimmers.
2.1 How hot is the water in the endless pool?
This is a question that we get a lot from swimmers. The water of the endless pool is 25 degrees, about 2 degrees lower than a “normal” pool.
3. The swim analysis
On the day of the swim analysis itself it is wise to be around 15-20 minutes in advance. Then the trainer can get acquainted and expectations or goals can be discussed. In total, the swim analysis and everything around it takes around 75 – 90 minutes.
The swimming video of is viewed during the analysis. On the basis of these images, it is discussed how swimming technique can be improved. This advice can be applied directly by the swimmer, because of the mirrors in the endless pool, the swimmer also has “direct” feedback.
4. After the analysis
After the training there is time for a cup of coffee with the trainer, so that you can discuss the results again. Here swimmers also receive tailor-made advice, allowing them to improve their swimming technique.
The detailed analysis is sent within four working days. The analysis consists of “photos” obtained from the video analysis, supplemented with tips and processed in a document.
5. Back in the water!
Time to put the advice and tips of the Tri-PT Studio specialist into practice. Now the swimmer can work on the swimming technique. If there is a need for another analysis, it is recommended to schedule this 4 to 6 weeks after the first analysis. This time depends on the frequency with which someone is swimming and the level, for a novice swimmer it may be good to do the following analysis after 2 to 3 weeks. The Tri-PT Studio trainer provides advice on this.
