7 days at T3 with Glen, two weeks before Swedish Masters ?

I was a litte worried if that was such a smart idea before I went there, but it turned out to be absolutely perfect for me. My goal at Swedish Masters was to do below 20 minutes on 1500m freestyle for the first time since the 1970´s :) and all my training the months before was focused on that. So I had a lot of meters with me to Teneriffe.

We did two sessions a day (three if counting the half hour of warm up in the gym every morning) and the variation in each session was big. I love that Glen never write up the session on a board, so you never really know if you are done or not or what is coming up.

So you just focus on every thing you do right now...hoping that you soon are finished :). I also got some really good help with my technique, on my turns and to "swim bigger" and all that helped a lot. So I am more than happy with my training week at T3, and I have already booked my next camp on the same week next year.... and my time at 1500m freestyle at Swedish Masters??? 19:46 and a silver medal, almost chocked over the good time so,,, thanks Glen and assistant coach Bo Hultén :)

The camp was really great! Really good two weeks. Thanks again and looking forward to coming back next year

I had the great opportunity to participate in Glen's Master Camp in Copenhagen in July 2011. Not really knowing what to expect I must say that it was a fabulous experience. After five days I was exhausted but extremely happy about what I had learnt and experienced not only in the water but also during the theoretical part. Glen has the great ability to find the right middle way between being critical and encouraging, giving you always the feeling that you can do it. A big thank to him and his assistant coach Anders.

Letters from costumers

If you are looking for a Youth and Kids Swim camp read this from Ian Tyers a very happy swim father from England:

 "Hi Glen, I booked Archie, who is 11, onto your youth and Masters camp in October to give him a great experience and hopefully inspire him. He had  a great time and really enjoyed the company of both the adults and children in the group. He hopes to stay friends with the Swedish boys for a long long time. The way you handled him at T3 brought an incredible  amount of potential out of him. His times have improved unbelievably and he has just won our County championship in the 400m freestyle and been second in 100free and 50back. He has qualified for 10 more events. Before coming to see you his aim was to make one event in the championships. Most importantly, he has learned  that hard work brings  rewards; has a great personal sense of achievement and satisfaction and you have ignited a passion for swimming and a desire to be a champion. Its also giving us great father / son time which is such a blessing. Thank you for giving us these things".

Many thanks for a very enjoyable 4 days at your camp in Tenerife. I wish it had been longer. I'm motivated now to start more serious training, but need to find a suitable goal and more pool time! I had a fantastic time, enjoying the stimulating training and wonderful facilities, sun, food and friendship. Thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Good luck with your future camps and keep me posted. Save me a space in Tenerife next year.

Ich komme zu den Swim Camps, weil es für mich der perfekte Urlaub ist! Sonne, nette Menschen kennenlernen und Schwimmen mit Leuten, die das Schwimmen genauso lieben wie ich. Bei einem normalen Urlaub dauert es Tage, bis man die Arbeit hinter sich lässt. Im Swim Camp beginnt die Erholung am ersten Tag. Eigentlich sollte es doch eine Quälerei sein, wenn man zwei Mal am Tag trainiert, aber bei den Swim Camps ist es anders! Das Training macht immer Spaß! Auch wenn ich zu den Langsamen zähle, merke ich nach jedem Trainingslager, dass ich etwas besser geworden bin. Und außerdem: Essen so viel man will und dabei nicht zunehmen? Das ist möglich im Swim Camp!"

Hi coach,
I'm writing just for thanking of your great job in Tenerife. I think you have had a great idea creating a swimming camp in a nice place as Tenerife is. Having the possibility of a teaching from a coach as skilled as you it's a great opportunity for all of us swimmers. I'm very glad, Glen, to spend my time with you and the others friends from all over the world..
As my coach said:" first duty then pleasure", so i did but at the same time...I think that your success depends on the fact you have been a swimmer of good level, you are a champion as you say, so you understand our mood every day at any workout...and you feel the same sensation as we have... Besides you have been as a second father to me giving advices and bringing us to our limits...
In conclusions I have enjoyed very much this camp thanks to u and all others friends
Greetings from Paris!

Believing in myself , that's what Glen Christiansen taught me.His life has been an inspiration to me. I thought that starting swimming at the age of 12 would be late , but when i learned that Glen has started at this age too , it made me more confident. I lived ups and downs like he did, and sometimes i wanted to give up, but there was something inside of me telling me not to. I didn't stop swimming, I trained for 2 years, and became one of the nationals champions in my country. It was surprising since every competitor has been training for 5 years or more ! After this accomplishment, I went to a swimming camp, met a wonderful man that has certainly changed my life : Glen Christiansen.

When he exposed his life and showed us how hard training was to reach his main goal ( being #1 in the world) , I was thinking to myself :" Why can't i go to the Olympics too? " My goals became bigge , being #1 of my age in Lebanon wasn't enough, I wanted more. Coach Glen has opened my eyes, made me believe in myself, made me work harder, through his life, his coaching and other personal stories. Since this camp, I trained harder, hoping reaching the top.
Glen Christiansen isn't only one of the #1 swimmers in the world, not only an inspiration ... He's an extraordinary man , he's an idol ... At least, my Idol. "
