MySwimPro Swim Retreat

  • April 20-26, 2024
  • Lyttos Beach Resort in Crete, Greece
  • 22 athletes from 11 different countries
  • 3 MySwimPro swim coaches
  • 5 days of swim workouts, technique analysis, group meals & fun!

2x Daily Swim Workouts

Campers stayed at the luxury Lyttos Beach Resort, which is home to world-class facilities, including a 50 meter Olympic-sized pool, dozens of other fun pools, a gorgeous beach, a gym, healthy restaurants and more. 

Every morning and afternoon, we hit the pool for technique-focused swim workouts led by expert coaches Fares Ksebati, Kaylie Noll, and Leo Sarigins.

The workouts started with a warmup, and then focused on improving a specific skill with drill work. Each workout finished up with a main set to apply the drills and get everyone’s hearts pumping! 

Throughout the week, the workouts progressed to help each camper swim faster and more efficiently by the end of the camp, and maybe even master a new skill or two!

Video Analysis

Each athlete got the chance to do a video analysis of their stroke with our expert coaches. 

We filmed each camper above and below water, and the coaches gave real-time feedback that campers worked on during their swims throughout the week.

These sessions were invaluable… it’s not every day that you can take time to actually see your stroke, and get in-depth feedback from a coach!

Dynamic Dryland & Stretching Sessions

To be good at swimming, you also have to train out of the water! During the week we got in a few dryland sessions on deck, focusing on swimming-specific movements that directly impact strength, power and speed in the water.

Fueling Up

When you’re training hard, you need to refuel with healthy, nutritious food! Each day, our guests received three meals from Lyttos’ healthy kitchen, ranging from smoothies to salads, sandwiches and even authentic Greek food.

These meals ensured that each athlete could show up to every workout feeling their best.

Making Time for Adventures

Between all of our workouts, we still found some time to explore the beautiful Mediterranean Sea!

We chartered two luxury catamarans and set out to explore the open water for an afternoon of relaxation, fun conversations, and open water swimming in the beautiful sea.

Some of the group also took an adventurous cycling trip!

Here’s what some of our guests had to say at the end of the week!
