We can teach anyone to swim! Whether you require an actor to look like an Olympic swimmer for a film or enable a celebrity to hold their own for a charity swimming race on TV, look no further than the Aquabatix team. With highly skilled and qualified swimming coaches, the Aquabatix team not only teach and improve swimming skills but know how to achieve the classic swimmer look for certain close up shots to make actors look believable as elite swimmers.
Recently Aquabatix swimming coaches were brought in to coach the actors for the upcoming film, The Swimmers, for Netflix. This involved six weeks of intensive training to coach two actors from beginner standard to look like world class swimmers both in their technique but also their mannerisms around poolside for an Olympic standard of competition.
Six weeks is not a long time to go from beginner to look like a believable butterfly swimmer at Olympic level, however, our swimming coaches achieved it. The actors were taught how to look professional on the starting block, how to warm up on deck like a swimmer, how swimming races are conducted and how to behave on poolside around other elite swimmers.
In addition, our swimming coaches taught the actors how to swim fully clothed, swim confidently underwater and how they should react in certain situations for other scenes in the film. The Aquabatix swimming coaches worked closely with the fitness coach for the actors to achieve the elite swimmer physique.
