Swim, stretch and run your way to a better body In 3 days

July 19th – 21st 2019
[without joint pain & body fatigue]

If you’re an athlete, exercise junky or pro sports player, looking to end the agony of muscle and joint pain while you achieve your personal best then you already know that you need to say goodbye to pain and injury when it comes to your training.

You know that if you want to push your body to the limit, the downside of that can be dealing with muscle and joint problems as you strive to reach your goal.

You also understand that to exercise to your physical peak, training at that level often results in pain and no pleasure in the process.

And you know that if you want to work out to your maximum potential, you need the perfect combination of mind and body and soul to get to your goal.


Here’s what you might not know…

Swimming, running and yoga, when combined can create a balance in your body which makes it stronger than ever, so it can work at peak performance.

Overcoming pain in training can completely change your athletic success-–Are you an athlete who trained hard when they were younger, but the years are taking their toll on your ability? It is possible to set and reach new goals which you didn’t think you could achieve with your fitness.

With age comes Wisdom? Being more educated & knowing how to apply that wisdom is the best way to heal past injuries for good.

10x your training as you overcome your mind & body’s boundaries

Become an Athletic Powerhouse Who Leaves Competitors For Dust As You Blast Through Your Exercise Barriers and Fatigue

Ditch joint pain, say goodbye to muscle aches and perform better than you have ever before by following our simple step-by-step system.

Maybe You Are….

An athlete who was at the top of their game in their teens and 20’s. But taking a high powered position at a company and sitting at desks and travelling for work has impacted your ability to exercise as much as you once could.


Your passion has had to take a back seat to the life of being a parent, school runs, looking after the family and day to day tasks.

And it means when you do hit the gym, or take to the track, you struggle. You yearn to be able to push yourself the way you once did, but you don’t have the same energy or inclination to do so, thanks to old injuries which you still suffer from when you are working out.


The main reason you are struggling to be able to push yourself is you feel you can’t find an all-in-one solution that addresses the pain issues you are struggling with.

You feel time poor because you have a busy life and see solving your sports pain and lack of motivation as a long and laborious process.

But, with age comes wisdom & you are smarter now! There is a solution to overcoming this fatigue and difficulty & you can get yourself back to your personal best. Age has nothing to do with you getting to your goal. But a tried and tested system, which teaches you how to recognize & adjust your movements by precise analyzing of how your body works and implementation of the correct moves through running and swimming, can help you find the strength and success you had as an athlete again – & maybe even unveil new skills you never even knew you had.

What you are looking for is a smart solution which will teach you the exact moves and techniques you need to feel that exhilarating rush of adrenalin once again without the fear that you’re damaging your body.

  • A system you can learn in a few days, that you can take with you into your daily life and training regimen and see results fast.
  • A system which enables you be at your best again when it come to your passion for your chosen sport.

The 5 Biggest Reasons Why Most Runners and Swimmers Fail At Maintaining Their Performance…

1. You Don’t Know What To Do…
Most runners and swimmers who have been enjoying their practice for a number of years think they don’t need to follow a plan. But as the body ages it is more important than ever to follow a regimen that looks at every aspect of the body and mind. Most training plans don’t address injury prevention & do nothing to help joints and muscles accommodate the different way they react to exercise as you get older.

2. You Don’t Do Strength Exercises…
Running and swimming isn’t just about the exercise itself, it’s also about keeping the body strong and balanced. And to do that strength has to be built. If you aren’t strengthening the body it’s probably one of the major reasons you’re chronically injured with aches and pains that always derail your training. Injury prevention isn’t the only reason to get strong. Strength exercises help you become more efficient and run faster.

3. You’re Nervous Of Failing Or Think You Don’t Have What It Takes…
Our brains are inherently lazy and it is for that reason we struggle to train, but by educating the mind & connecting our movements with applied thoughts we keep both brain & body active.

Athletes and exercise enthusiasts who want to maintain their physical fitness into later years need to instill smart habits that will override that instinct to put your feet up. And it is also a battle to believe you have what it takes to do sport as we get older. Maintaining a balanced mind through meditation and yoga is a key way to overcome those nerves.

4. You Don’t Have Time….
Ok, so we’re all busy & there’s always a million reasons why you can’t get to the gym, but time waits for no man & age continues its journey regardless.  So if you want to be able to enjoy the fruits of your labour well into your later years, the time to act is right now. So make every second or minute you have free count.  Be smart by training smartly. Even if you’re sitting at your desk most of the day – there’s still a smart way to do so. You don’t have to buy lots of gadgets or gear – this is real information that you can use immediately.  Change one thing you do everyday by being more self aware & who knows where that will take you.

5. You Are Continuing to Perform in Your Sport Using The Wrong Technique…
Using the wrong technique continuously can have a detrimental effect on your ability to give it your all. Performing at a higher level doesn’t mean you have to ignore any pain you might be experiencing.  By establishing exactly what is causing it, using a tried and tested system, means you can overcome it the right way.


A Note From The Founder

As a fully qualified Total Immersion coach & trainer studying for a degree in Exercise Physiology, I pride myself on being thorough & aim to be one of the most experienced in my field. My extensive experience as an athlete and training in Kinetics, means I can pinpoint the imbalances you can experience in the body if you train hard, incorrectly or you have a long history of pushing your body to the limit through sport. I know exactly how this can feel, at 46 years old, and with a huge passion for all things active.

Taking part in 3 Ironman, and several ½ Ironman competitions as well multiple marathons, a 10k/5k, has put my body through its paces. Coupling this with a passion for rock climbing and mountain biking means I understand what it is like being passionate about exercise & wanting to continue that into one’s later years. This is what has led me to specialize in helping others improve their ability to move with more freedom, get stronger and correct their muscle imbalances.

My knowledge & application of strength training, functional movement, massage & PT skills means my clients never have to worry about being in pain or dealing with old injuries that can slow them down.

If you come to our three day Pain & Injury Reduction Programme for Swimmers & Runners, I know you will achieve exactly the results you want to take your body and fitness to the next level, love the course & get so much out of it.

Why? Because we have a team of people which I have personally selected using my expertise and training, to give you the best possible support and training you need to give you back the strength, success and pain free training you desire in your chosen sport.

– Coach Lorna Richardson


“I have been treated by Lorna with a combination of strengthening,  conditioning, and massage since my disability due to Proximal Neuropathy some years ago. This condition degraded both nerves and  muscle mass in the left side of my body. Through her exercise program I have recovered both muscle strength and the stability needed to walk  without a walker and indeed to function normally in gardening and the usual household chores. She is always sensitive to one’s feelings without losing sight of  the need to continually progress in the recovery process. I recommend her to anyone whose life is compromised by physical disability”.

Ron Nowek – Retired Aeronautical Engineer

“A session with Lorna is so-o beyond coaching. It is expertise and knowledge used to enable us to move better and more efficiently whether swimming or out of the water. A step towards genuine good health and well being, including mental clarity & acuity. ”

Mary Rushfield – Retired Professor

“I have been training with Lorna Richardson for many months now. She has definitely helped me become a good swimmer. She is very patient and very helpful and very much a people person. She is very thorough and very precise and walks you through all the different and proper movements in order to become a good and an efficient swimmer. I highly recommend Lorna to any swimmer whether they be a beginner or somebody with a lot of experience in that her techniques could help everybody.  I have benefited greatly from her expertise”.

Mark Burkes – Real Estate Investor & Developer.

“Lorna is the most amazing swim coach. I learnt to swim as a child then didn’t swim for years apart from lying about on vacations but no serious swimming. As my knees started to bug me from all the running I was doing I took up Tri Training and Lorna has been the most amazing swim coach. She is so detailed and focused and encouraging and I am now swimming a mile + in the ocean and two or three mornings a week at Palisades pool and completed 3 tris. Before her coaching I could barely do a length of freestyle in the high school pool. She is such a pro and a brilliant coach!”

Sarah Robarts – President of Ballantines PR

“Lorna has an extraordinary understanding of the body and how it works and is absolutely passionate about it. I strongly recommend Lorna to anyone who is interested in improving their swimming – no matter what age or level or condition. She’s fantastic!”

Nancy Forman – President of Language Liaison

“I have been swimming with Lorna for almost 2 years now and love her enthusiasm and the effort she puts into the workouts. My stroke has improved a lot since we started and it is always a fun and challenging workout. I can just encourage everyone who loves to swim, to try out a session with Lorna and spread the word.”

Karin Reitinger – Pilates Instructor

You’re already halfway there! You’re looking straight at the answer.  Why not start your swim journey the safest, most efficient way so you can swim til you’re 100!….& while you’re at it, perhaps discover some things about your running that you didn’t even know you were doing.  So maybe you’ll be able to keep that up too.

Isn’t Getting Injured Simply A Part of Training…
Swimmers and runners push their bodies to the limit when it comes to their chosen sport. But often the thought of training hard, especially when you lose confidence in your ability and fear hurt, can have an impact on your performance. And what if you didn’t need to get hurt? What if you learned the right way to hold yourself everytime you hit the water or ran a mile? That would be a game changer for you mentally and physically.

  • You have been doing great on land, but your weak spot is in the water. You find it stressful and full of struggle
  • You are passionate about exercise, have made good progress in performance, and are investing time and energy in the process, but wonder why it leaves you so wiped out and hurting after training and racing.
  • You are prepping for a triathlon or Ironman & know swimming is your weakest link.

If you said yes to at least three of the above I can’t wait for you to join me for The Pain and injury Reduction Program for Swimmers and Runner


“In March 2018 I decided to sign up for the December 2018 La Quinta half Ironman. I had never done a triathlon before, had never been a swimmer and had never learnt freestyle due to my fear of submerging my face in water. I contacted Lorna for swimming lessons. Over the next 9 months, Lorna took me from being unable to swim one lap, to swimming over 1.2 miles of freestyle in open water and subsequently competing in and finishing my triathlon. I could not have done this without her. Lorna is thorough in her teaching method, breaking down the stroke making it easy and fun to learn. At times when I had self doubt and got frustrated with myself, her patience, dedication and complete belief in me kept me going. She went above and beyond in helping me achieve my goal and I owe her everything. I would recommend her to everyone!”

Lynne Kane – Yoga Instructor

“Lorna could teach a brick to swim: 6 months ago, I couldn’t even sink with style, but this month I’m competing in my first triathlon. The investment is so very worth it.”

Ben Hammersley – Consultant Futurist
