Maybe you were on the swim team as a kid, but you know swimming competitively as a grown up is no joke. Whether you’re an experienced swimmer seeking to finesse your stroke and improve your times, or you’re someone with dreams of competing in a tri but the damn swim keeps holding you back, we can help.

Swim stuff we offer:

Our focus on coaching adults is what sets us apart. Whether you want to complete a triathlon, a 10K marathon swim, or own the pool like a boss at the local Y, we offer individual and semi-private lessons. In-water instruction can be enhanced with written workouts (homework, but it’s fun) to ensure your stroke changes are repeatable and long-lasting. Each lesson is 55 minutes.

Lessons may be in a pool, Endless Pool or Open Water.

Private coaching

1 lesson        $75 (60 minutes), or $40 (30 minutes)
3 lessons      $215
5 lessons      $350

Not everyone grew up with a swim team or swim lessons, and learning to swim really is a life safety skill. Coach Lana is a certified ALTS Instructor by U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS).  Most students learn to swim in four to six lessons, but we’ll stick with you until you’re ready to jump in and swim across a pool with kid-style confidence.

Did you know Coach Lana didn’t learn to swim until she was 34, and that she was petrified of water that obscured sight of her feet? Her first few years racing triathlon were plagued with crippling fear that sabotaged the bike and run, no matter how strong she was on land.

Her dedication and perseverance to overcome fear and anxiety has a liability into a strength. And she didn’t just “figure it out,” she learned many tools and strategies resulting in confidence, competence and even competitiveness in open water.

We employ a variety of tools and strategies to help you during, or in addition to, swim lessons, to gain the confidence and skills to survive and thrive in any open water situation, especially in current-assisted and cold temperature swims.

The magic of swimming happens underwater. Logical, right? That’s why we use video cameras to capture a swimmer’s stroke along with video analysis tools and a TV right next to our endless pool that enable the coach and swimmer to view, analyze, and learn together. 

If you can’t swim at LB Endurance Lab, we offer remote stroke analysis. Your friend takes some videos, you upload them, we pour through the footage, and then meet up virtually to review our findings and recommendations.  $75 per review.

For swimmers who want a private swim space and experience. Use our equipment, and enjoy the LB Endurance Lab environment for swimming, floating or aqua-jogging.

We are available to work with teams, clubs, and groups – either in the pool or in open water.  Each adult group requires a custom-tailored solution, but we’re always up for helping. Over the years, we’ve enjoyed coordinating and coaching a variety of camps and clinics to teach technical skills, race strategies and how to develop a strong mental game.

Coach Lana Burl leads the USMS Masters Swim program for Prime Aquatics in Alcoa, TN. This is a community of fun adult swimmers where you can learn new skills, and enjoy a great workout that you don’t have to think up on your own. There are multiple coached practices every week, and we love to welcome swimmers into the family. (Not required: Ability to flip turn or swim butterfly, but we’ll help you learn!)
