In this course you are going to learn how to swim from 2.5k to 10k in 4 months(4 times a week,64 swimming workouts if you swim 3 times a week it will take you 6 months) you will get 16 training programs for each week, every worksheet has 4 workouts for 4 days of the week(one is in the sea)

Thousands of people are joining each month the WEST way to swim and learning how to protect their lower back and swim faster and easier.

The 10k swim is exactly like a Marathon run, but different, when you need to rest you can't just stop or walk, in this course you will strengthen your muscles and elongate them in order for you to be able to swim in all conditions.

Today Water World and WEST swimming technique is one of the biggest and most professional clubs in the world for hydrotherapy, we wont only teach you to swim, we will let you protect and build your body step by step like we did with thousand of people in marathon running, Ironman, ultra open water competition and much more.

We see each person as if he has a herniated disc in the lower back and neck even if he doesn’t have no pain at all.
The swim WEST technique was developed over 15 years ago in order to relax the body and treat neck and back problems, as well as traumatic accidents. Recently, we can see a clear trend in the athletic world of adjusting the swimming technique to one’s body shape, physical abilities and even lifestyle. The swim WEST technique is based on those 3 factors solely, and modified to every individual with personal and specific care.

WEST swimming makes it easier on the neck, prevents injuries and allows swimming for a longer distances.
We have no doubt that Michael Phelps did not imitate swim WEST , but surely and slowly the world is adapting the main principles of looseness. It might be too slow, not taking into consideration 21st century lifestyle changes. In our current era, about 70% of the population suffers from neck and back problems, as a direct result of our lifestyle. Seems like it is going to take the world an additional 20 years to fully understand WEST benefits, qualities and its contribution to our quality of life. But you guys, new members of WEST swimming class will understand and enjoy its benefits as soon as today.

Some people say it’s best to train with a group and they are 100% right!! but what if you have pain in your lower back or you really want to work on your swimming technique?

Is it possible to learn and improve your swimming techniques while swimming fast? is it possible to treat pains when swimming fast?

Swim WEST “Learn swimming online program” takes you step by step in order to live a pain free life.


Who is the target audience?
  • Swimmers that are able to swim 3k in the pool or in the sea.

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.
