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?
