“In my professional opinion, anyone who incorporates the drills in this book and follows the training model will certainly improve efficiency, build conditioning, and learn to swim faster over longer distances.” -Sergio Lopez Miro, Olympic Swimmer & Coach
“I swam my first lap just two years ago and quickly learned that to have a successful workout at the pool, I need to have a plan. This book provides over 130 such plans to help me improve form, balance, power, and speed. I’m still working on breaking 32 minutes in the Half Iron swim, but the water and I just haven’t become best buds yet. I bet with this book I can!!!” -Kendra Goffredo, 9th Place Ironman Kona 2012
“All workouts should have a purpose and this book does exactly that. Swimming is a highly technical sport and this book bleeds technique. The lessons keep you trying something different so your swims stay exciting. The book is very detailed and easy to understand, a must have for all triathletes.” -Trevor Dale, Beginner Triathlete
