Tim Seaman and Jeff Salvage Race Walking Clinic
San Diego, CA - January 25th and 26th 2014

Two Time Olympian Tim Seaman and founder of www.racewalk.com Jeff Salvage are proud to announce their coming together for a series of exciting educational race walking clinics. Tim’s experience as one of America’s most dominate 20K walkers for the past two decades is combining with Jeff’s vast experience of coaching, educating, and promoting race walking. Together they are creating a weekend clinic that will feature individualized attention, group lectures, and high tech know how that will leave you walking more quickly, more legally, and more powerfully than before. 

This clinic will feature 2-Time Olympian Tim Seaman as well as Canada's best woman race walker Olympian Rachel Seaman. If many people sign up we will add additional clinicians. Jeff Salvage probably will not attend, but will perform the photo analysis from afar and send back the photos annotated for Tim's presentation on Sunday

All attendees will experience hands on coaching, in addition to the many well prepared lectures covering technique, training philosophy, nutrition, injuries, and strength work. Jeff’s unparalleled photographs of the World’s best walkers along with Tim’s critique of their style provides unique insight into the upper echelon of race walking. While many walkers need the detailed PowerPoint presentation on technique, others who have attended clinics in the past can opt for additional hands on experience with Tim. All participants will not only receive individualized attention and feedback, but will also receive an email version of their images with the critiques sketched overtop.

Tim Seaman has race walked since 1988 and quickly became one of America’s premier race walkers. He broke his first Jr. Record in 1990 and was a member of the 2000 and 2004 Olympic team.  Tim is 3rd on the all time American list of national titles (but not for long) and currently holds 10 American records. In addition to training and working, Tim has coached  some of America's top National Team women as well as many of the best and brightest upcoming stars from the South Texas Walking Club and from around the country.

Jeff Salvage started race walking in 1984 and had a brief, but successful, career competing nationally and internationally as a  competitor before turning to coaching and educating. He is the founder of www.racewalk.com and author of “Walk Like an Athlete” and “Race Walk Like a Champion” as well as their corresponding videos and DVDs.  Jeff has coached walkers at all levels from beginning fitness walkers, marathoners, elite juniors, and international competitors.

See the before and after photos of one of our clinic attendees. The photo on the lower left was taken at the 10K Nationals and the other two photos were taken the day after the race having attended our two day clinic. While Sheldon will need to work on his turnover and get up more, the results are dramatic.

“I have been race walking in competition for the past four years and have been disqualified more times than I care to recall. Just could not get the left knee straight for an entire race. After working with Jeff and Tim for a weekend, they got me using good race walking form. Their experience and ability to diagnose the problem was right on. You could not ask for a better team for a race walking seminar.” - Sheldon Contract
