  1. Butterfly Made Easy (HD DOWNLOADABLE PRODUCT)

    Butterfly Made Easy (HD DOWNLOADABLE PRODUCT)

    When I was in my early 50's after 40 years of trying unsuccessfully to figure out how to swim more than 50 yards of butterfly without exhaustion - I gave myself a lifetime pass from ever swimming it again. Yet in 2005, at age 54, I noticed something on a Michael Phelps DVD that cracked the code of effortless Fly for me. Within weeks I'd swum my first 200 butterfly, and within months won the 200 Fly at a Masters meet. The medal mattered far less than the exquisite sense of pleasure I got from swimming effortless butterfly. Our new Butterfly Made Easy Self-Coaching Course will introduce you to four techniques that make it possible to swim butterfly with an unprecedented ease and enjoyment: 1. Focus more on a long, streamlined bodyline than on pulling and kicking. 2. Play buoyancy and gravity against each other. 3. Use just one kick per stroke cycle - either a dolphin or a frog kick. 4. Breathe every stroke cycle with a sneaky breath. This Course Includes: 1. Four videos (totaling 23 minutes), illustrating four foolproof learning steps and featuring: a. Surface and underwater views from every perspective; b. Slow-motion and stop-action to highlight critical moments; and c. Dozens of succinct on-screen coaching tips. 2. A 67-page densely-illustrated e-workbook, providing deep guidance on: a. The efficiency foundations for the stroke you're studying; b. How to succeed at each of the four learning steps for that stroke; and c. Whole-stroke training tips Beautiful photo illustrations show every key moment and position for each learning step and the whole stroke. Learn More

  2. Breaststroke Made Easy Self-Coaching Course (HD DOWNLOADABLE PRODUCT)

    Breaststroke Made Easy Self-Coaching Course (HD DOWNLOADABLE PRODUCT)

    Breaststroke is the world's oldest and most popular stroke. There is evidence of a breaststroke-like style being swum over 10,000 years ago and it was the first stroke taught formally, in books published between 1538 and 1794. However, the highly inefficient and very slow style taught nearly 500 years ago - head held high with large, slow arm circles - still prevails among many lap swimmers today. Closely related styles that retain many of the inefficient characteristics of 'ancient' breaststroke are nearly universal today. Our new Breaststroke Made Easy Self Coaching Course teaches a radically different style that incorporates key techniques used by elites which allow them to swim stunningly fast times - under 1:00 for 100 meters. Yet these techniques do not require youth, great fitness, or special talents. In fact, they can easily be learned by swimmers of any age or level of athleticism - including those learning breaststroke for the first time. Four innovative high-efficiency skills 1. Minimize drag: Streamline underwater for most of each stroke cycle; spend less time at the surface. 2. Conserve energy: Return to the surface by 'catching a wave' of buoyancy and momentum. 3. Avoid waste: Pull and kick with smaller strokes that greatly reduce drag while producing highly effective propulsion. 4. Maximize momentum: Swim barely above and below the surface. Breathe with a stable and aligned head. This Course Includes: 1. Four videos (totaling 23 minutes), illustrating four foolproof learning steps and featuring: a. Surface and underwater views from every perspective; b. Slow-motion and stop-action to highlight critical moments; and c. Dozens of succinct on-screen coaching tips. 2. A 71-page densely-illustrated e-workbook, providing deep guidance on: a. The efficiency foundations for the stroke you're studying; b. How to succeed at each of the four learning steps for that stroke; and c. Whole-stroke training tips Beautiful photo illustrations show every key moment and position for each learning step and the whole stroke. Learn More

  3. Backstroke Made Easy Self-Coaching Course (HD DOWNLOADABLE PRODUCT)

    Backstroke Made Easy Self-Coaching Course (HD DOWNLOADABLE PRODUCT)

    Backstroke is the stroke with the most striking similarities to freestyle (one is sometimes called front crawl, the other back crawl). It's also the most restorative and relaxing to swim . . . if you swim it the highly efficient way taught by Total Immersion. But most people swim it more like a semi-sinking windup toy. You'll get amazing results if you follow the TI Efficiency Pyramid of Balance > ’Streamline' > Propel, as we do in the four learning steps in our Backstroke Made Easy Self Coaching Course. 1. Balance and mold your core body into a low-drag torpedo shape. 2. Move your head-spine line through the water straight as if being towed by a line atop your head. Rotate your core-body around it. 3. Form long, 'slippery' lines from fingertips to toes on right side and left side. Switch from right-side to left-side line without disturbing the water. 4. Connect your strokes to the action of your core body. These skills are so similar to the efficiency foundations of freestyle that you can improve your freestyle by working on them in backstroke . . . and vice versa. A smooth, relaxed backstroke can also help you build your capacity for effortless distance. Swim freestyle for as long as you stay efficient. Then take a rest break with a length of relaxing backstroke before resuming freestyle. This Course Includes: 1. Four videos (totaling 23 minutes), illustrating four foolproof learning steps and featuring: a. Surface and underwater views from every perspective; b. Slow-motion and stop-action to highlight critical moments; and c. Dozens of succinct on-screen coaching tips. 2. A 70-page densely-illustrated e-workbook, providing deep guidance on: a. The efficiency foundations for the stroke you're studying; b. How to succeed at each of the four learning steps for that stroke; and c. Whole-stroke training tips Beautiful photo illustrations show every key moment and position for each learning step and the whole stroke. Learn More
