Total Immersion: The Revolutionary Way To Swim Better, Faster, and Easier

Autor Terry Laughlin Cu John Delves
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 21 iun 2004
Even though swimming is the closest thing to a perfect exercise you can name, too few people experience its full benefits. That's because most find themselves fighting to stay afloat, struggling for air, and feeling exhausted after just a lap or two, all of which makes this perfect exercise frustrating, laborious, and complicated. For the past fifteen years, veteran swim coach Terry Laughlin has been teaching adults how to swim better - and enjoy it more - by using his simple and original techniques. Laughlin turns traditional swimming beliefs inside out as he explains that it's technique - not athletic ability - that makes a strong swimmer. Laughlin teaches 'Fishlike Swimming,' focusing on slipping through the water rather than using muscle to overpower it. The key is working with the water, not against it - learning to swim ever faster and farther without losing a sense of flow, grace, economy, and balance.

Notă biografică

Terry Laughlin was a competitive swimmer in college and went on to coach college swim teams for 20 years. While watching his teams grind out lap after endless lap, he realized that a few people were "natural" swimmers while others struggled through a workout. Hoping to teach this "natural" ability, Laughlin left college coaching in 1988 to teach swim technique to adult swimmers.

Laughlin went on to become the director of Total Immersion Adult Swim Camps and Clubs, which are held all over the world. His revolutionary swimming program is used by professional athletes and recreational swimmers alike. He passed away at age 66 after a battle with prostate cancer.


Eddie Reese 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2004 United States Olympic Coach and Head Coach, University of Texas (six-time NCAA champions) The most valuable service a good coach provides is to sharpen your technique, not make you work harder. Terry Laughlin has done an outstanding job of simplifying that complex job, providing practical tools that will work for any coach or teacher.
David Marsh 1996, 2000, and 2004 United States Olympic Coach and Head Coach, Auburn University (2003 NCAA Men's and Women's champions) Total Immersion can help anyone learn to be a better swimmer, regardless of ability. Terry Laughlin makes an improved stroke simple for the novice, yet I've seen his methods work for elite swimmers, too.
