In our training programs, we offer a specific goal — swim 500 meters or 1000 meters in one month, qualify for the SUB20 group or finish an open water swim. These goals are easy to accomplish, you can measure them in a specific way, hence it is easier to motivate yourself. Getting a clear vision of your goals is the best way to start and continue swimming.
New acquaintances and valuable connections are the reasons why many start doing sports. And it works! Shared impressions and worrying experiences during the start of an event strengthen any relationship.
During the program, you can undergo a scheduled medical examination and get an individual doctor’s consultation. The doctor accompanies the students throughout the course.
We know that in the process of training you will have many questions regarding the technique of swimming, training schedules and other details. Therefore, we have made several communication channels - conveniently use to find a quick solution.
One, two, three, inhale, one, two, three, inhale, I see a pontoon 100 meters away, come on, you have already done it, well done, now you embrace your daughter, you are not tired at all, not even a challenge, it swims well. The finish is slightly to the left, I look at every second, third breath. What? Why is he right ??? It was blown away … let’s get stronger than rowing, why am I only further from the pontoon, what is happening ??? My uncle is watching me on the boat, and so gently he says, “swim, swim, everything is fine”
Pontoon, touch, cry of joy, victory, tears, I see nothing, I go laugh and cry.
I will come next year for 5 km.
I am very much looking forward to start my Level 2 coaching with Coach Exon again! In the swim sessions, I discovered my lost technique, and he guided me so well, that i am back in proper form. My Son Krish was so excited to see me swim in my home pool, that he forced me to take me to my coaching session, where he was evaluated even a better swimmer than me, but still a long way to go. Thank you for accepting my son for the Level 2 group as well! We look forward to see Exon soon. Wishing you Eid Mubarak. Best Regards. Cheers. Gautam Banka.
First of all, thank you for recommending Shehan and I to join Exon’s swimming classes. To say that we are exceptionally happy is an understatement.
He loves his craft and his teaching methodology is easy to grasp. His technical knowledge combined with scientific facts keep us abreast, entertained and encouraged.
Having Exon as our coach motivates us to attend each session as we find it therapeutic after a stressful day at work.
Thank you once again for connecting us with Exon and suggest everyone reading to learn/improve your swimming with ILSS!
I wouldn’t have done it if I hadn’t seen others enrolling for it….distance is 6 km I had never swam that, but was encouraged by being told don’t worry there is a strong current pushing you.
The course inspection was something. The boat took a lot to travel and seeing it from inside was impressive. Again didn’t panic believing in the strong current story.
And it was true.
Sofiya suggested to swim in the middle and I did it I felt I was flying had the head easily above water felt no fatigue.
Swimming in the middle almost by myself occasionally encountering one swimmer was great. Bosphorus is enormous, unless you are a professional swimmer that does those big swims you can’t get a similar feeling.
Also is a great week end, Istanbul is great city and for that week end you feel the centre of it.
And the best part is when your friends see the pictures and you tell the story.
Or if someone start to tell you how we shall all go to Istanbul is such a great City and you reply yes I’ve been I swam through the Bosporus.
Big thanks to I Love Supersport to have found me the ticket.
My journey with “I Love Supersport” started in summer 2018.
I was volunteering at the indoor triathlon competition, met brilliant “I Love Supersport” team and got impressed and energized a lot.
By October I delivered a crazy idea to swim 1,5 km open water.
I did not have any swimming technic and I still had problems with my right arm after car accident, but I knew whom should I contact for swimming lessons. On the assessment day coach told me that either I should sell the slot or understand that it is going to be hours and hours of hard work. I decided to give it a try. Sweat & tears, tears and sweat. Next what I remember 1,5 month later my coach met me at the finish line and told me “See, I told you that you can do it, what’s next?”.
This is how I started to get ready for a 10 km run. Thanks to coach - he kept cheering me up and telling me that he trusts I can do it and I can do even more.
Yes, me - person whose medical card looks more like a book not a card - did half marathon this year - just 5 month after starting trainings 😁
Next step was joining cycling classes (waking up at 5 am and driving to the course with a smile - crazy, right?).
My goal is triathlon sprint in Abu Dhabi, than one more sprint in Sochi and than half iron star distance in Kazan. Who knows, maybe one day I will find myself doing full distance somewhere else😝
I am so grateful to “I Love Supersport” team - my life changed a lot after meeting them, for me it is a story of a fight that I won with their great support.
