Learning the freestyle & backstroke turn and protecting lower back.

The WEST way to swim will teach you how to gain more air, how to use the water in order to perform the freestyle turn and  to protect your lower back & neck and eventually to swim much faster.

In this course you will get 4 different workout which you are going to repeat exactly 3 times ( in different days).

It is recommended to do the workout before your usual swimming workout or afterwords.

The swim WEST freestyle turn course will teach you:

1. How to protect your lower back & neck while doing the freestyle turn

2. You will learn to use the water & glide to make an easily flip.

3. You will improve your lung capacity.

4. You will learn to flip from backstroke to freestyle and to the opposite direction

5.You will swim faster in long distance and you will have more air.   

Many swimmers, older than 18 years old, get dizzy or out of breath when attempting to perform a flip turn or feel like it is done too slowly.

According to WEST swimming technique, we turn on the walls while protecting our lower back and neck, and using the water resistance for our own good. It enables us to perform a proper turn, and understand our physical abilities. The turn has some key points- dropping our feet, gliding to the wall, rolling in our head and expiring air out through our nose (so we don’t get water in our nose, which is a very annoying burning sensation by itself).

The reason you get 4 workouts ( 12 workouts after repeating each workout 3 times) is that it takes 1.5 months to get used to swimming with less air.

Ori Sela is the founder of one of the biggest and most professional hydrotherapy centers in the world 

I dedicate my life to treat people and live a better life.

Founder and CEO at "Water World" & WEST swimming technique

Hi, I'm Ori Sela, owner and professional manager of Water World and WEST swimming technique, the healthiest swimming technique in the world.

I grew up next to the sea and never left the water since, the water was the only place I could feel good, alive, it helped me treat my ADHD & my ballet disk.

I dedicate my life to give back  humanity the love  the water gave me.

Today, after passing the age of 44, I have an amazing wife, Tami & 4 kids, Tom,Libby, Dean &Reef and over 30 years of experience as a swimmer, a qualified hydro therapist, swimming coach, babies swimming instructor, Watzu, Jahara and shiatsu therapist, triathlon coach, open water coach, therapeutic swimming instructor, pregnant women coach and for my mom - hold a BA in business & marketing from IDC, Herzliya.

But most importantly, I work with thousands of babies, kids and adults, some of which suffer lower back or neck pains, recover from CVA or an accident, or fighting a fear of the water, and teach them the right way to swim.

Today, Water World is one of the biggest most professional swimming and hydrotherapy clubs in the world with over 140 coaches and therapists working in the water, believing in the water and the strength it can give you.

I believe people are different and every man or women needs to swim according to their own unique DNA. What's right for Michael Phelps is probably not right for you, and what's right for you is not right for Muhammad, Charles, Jennifer or Tom.

I am here in this world to help people; I believe in the water and love the water with every part of my body and every breath I take.

Join us, and feel amazing, you will know that it is right for you.

Coached, swam and claimed the World record with 5 of my friends in the longest relay open water swim, from Cyprus to Israel and swam with his team 377 km, in order to raise the awareness on the issue of sea pollution in the Mediterranean (in association with Zalul NGO).

The Dream – to teach and heal millions of people who suffer from lower back pain all around the world with the WEST (Water World Swimming Therapy ) swimming technique and all online.

In Addition – Ori gives consultations on building and operating swimming pools.

Ori talked about “The Power Of The Sea" in TEDx Nicosia and told his story as a problematic child until breaking a world record.
