Default Learning to swim!

Is anyone familiar with or have an opinion on the workshop offered in the link below?

I've just been swimming for a little over one year and with a snorkel.

Can't beat it! I wish I could have had private instruction in one of the endless pools but I loved my workshop here in S.F., and it changed my life forever. Oh and BTW I've been swimming a little over a year and have already done a 10K and am preparing for an 18K in May.

Keep Swimming!

This might support the praise for workshops. I've never been to a workshop. I've been swimming for two years and can NOT do a 10k. hehe (Give me a wetsuit and some salt water and I /might/ be able to /survive/ it.)

just my opinion, coming from a snorkel myself: they will probably take you through the exercises on the dvds, which you can do on your own, for a fraction of the price. i have no doubt it will be a positive learning experience, but the process of becoming comfortable breathing while swimming takes time, much more than one day. on the other hand, it just might help you learn to swim without the snorkel faster than you could on your own. if you have the money and the time, go for it!

I have taken lessons from this coach. I currently take lessons from Bob Wiskera in Dallas, and I live in Houston. Send me an e-mail with your contact information if you want to discuss by telephone.
