Easy Freestyle. That's the whole drill progression and fundamentals of the system. Great DVD, you'll love it.

Default Easy Freestyle

Be very careful that it is NOT "freestyle made easy". Easy free is the way to be.

I'm also interested in the difference between those two videos. I bought recently "Freestyle: Made easy". Is there some essential difference in "Easy Freestyle" compared to the "older version" so that I should consider ordering the new one?

Default It depends

Inca,

I think it depends.
If you are quite at ease with your freestyle and
- your only problem is breathing, then the 'O2 in H2O' might be the best choice
- you want to do open water swimming: Then the 'OUT of the BOX one'
- you want to improve th other strokes, Breaststroke, backstroke, betterfly...

In all other cases, particularly when you don't think your freestyle could be improved, I can highly recommend the 'Easy Freestyle'. It is the most expensive - but it is an incredible help. You know that I also didn't know how to swim freestyle, and I learned it from this DVD. It is a collection of step-by-step lessons, all demonstrated in videos with a very specific comment, covering everything, including breathing.
And whatever 'room for optimization' you discover in your strokes - you will find a drill on this DVD to help with that.
