Become a Better Swimmer

Back by popular demand, Helle Frederiksen’s highly-personal Better Swimmer swim clinics are returning to Denmark with confirmed dates in November 2019 at Farum Svømmehal in Sjælland and Ikast Svømmecenter in Jylland.

“I’ve learnt so much during my 11 year career as a professional triathlete. The Better Swimmer clinics are designed to make every attendee a Better Swimmer. It is an opportunity for me to share my knowledge and be a hands-on personal swim instructor for an exclusive group.”

’Better Swimmer Clinic’ provided an inspiring framework to help me in obtaining success in the pool. Technical issues were addressed and with a combined approach (in water/on land) that left me inspired with many take-aways. I truly recommend Better  Swimmer – both as an investment but also to achieve whatever goals you set for yourself as a swimmer.

The Objective

Quite simply, the objective of a Better Swimmer clinic is to make you a Better Swimmer. Helle, along with her right-hand/husband/coach/advisor, Ben (#BP), will act as your coaches during a highly personal swim clinic. They’ll put their eyes (and cameras) onto your swimming with a goal of making you better.

“Ben and I will be getting hands on and personal with you as we analyse your swimming, giving advice and guidance on the fly, with a detailed video analysis delivered by myself after the clinic is complete.”

The Package


 Pre-clinic screening via email, identifying the needs of each participant on the course. Swimmers of all levels are welcomed.

A total of 1 hour 45 minutes of in-person swim instruction. A mixture of land and pool work. Working personally with each participant. No more than 6 persons at any one clinic. Your stroke would be filmed during this session.

Post-clinic video analysis with voice-over feedback and visual prompts provided by Helle. This analysis will combine above and below video footage taken from the swim clinic, giving you a good understanding of where your focus needs to be in order to become a Better Swimmer.

Entry to the swimming pool is included and each participant will receive swag items.

‘Coach’ is what I would call ‘wonder woman’. Her guidance and coaching has really been effective. In my 4th year with HF I made my IRONMAN debut in 10:13:41.

Helle has been by my side as my coach since summer 2017. She’s very dedicated and professional and she supports me on a daily basis with targeted programs, constructive feedback and support – both when things are working very well and when I face injury. She’s always ready to share her deep knowledge and extended experience within the sport, which is of great value on a day to day basis and inexpressible when going into races. Helle gave me so much confidence when I had my debut at Kona.
