ABOUT TOTAL IMMERSION™
The key to faster swimming is understanding that each time we enter the water, we bring with us all our human traits and habits and instincts. They serve us well on land, but in the water they lead to some extraordinarily inefficient and exhausting movements. This is called Human Swimming. Fishlike Swimming, by contrast, is fast, effortless, and smart. This is the kind of swimmer you want to be. But in order to swim like a fish, you need to shed your human instincts and learn to do some things that will feel counter-intuitive at first, but, with practice, will become quite natural and will make you as relaxed and at home in the water as a fish. And you'll be swimming faster, too, with much less effort.
Total Immersion™ is the only place to learn cutting-edge techniques of active streamlining. A great experience with TI means you become efficient & effortless:
Mastering balance - finding harmony and becoming relaxed in the water
Reducing drag - pierce the water and become slippery, gliding through it.
Smooth, fluid propulsion - use the effortless power of the body's core rotation
Every lap you ever do feels good, and/or offers a sense of progress.
You swim so beautifully that people ask how you learned to swim like that.
You can swim with all the grace, fluidity and ease of the worlds greatest swimmers!
Total Immersion™ will transform you into the swimmer you always wished you could be.
