…first out of the water in the Long Beach Triathlon.
“I’ve been using your swim tips and techniques and I actually was first out of the water in the Long Beach Triathlon of women in my age division… this is an all time first for that! I’ve always been middle of the pack… I was shocked myself! I actually ended up first place for my age and 12th overall… I was pretty excited. Doing Hermosa Beach this weekend… hope the waves are small. I am from Iowa and don’t like big waves!”

I felt strong more focused on what my training had taught me…
“Kevin, I took 10 minutes off Pumkin Man last October in the swim and 34 min overall on my time and moved up two slots in my age group to # 8! YeHaw!
I followed your modules concentrating more on technique for rotation and glide and swam the course for 3 days two weeks before the event and worked on distance. I felt strong more focused on what my training had taught me and confidence played a big factor

I was able to swim a 1:16 which was A LOT faster than I expected…
“I signed up for an Ironman without ever doing a triathlon of any distance. I had never swam laps before. Right before I signed up for this course, I signed up for a 1/2 ironman (my first triathlon ever) to ‘practice’. My swim time was slow, 50 min I think. My Ironman fell in month 4 of this training and will all that I had learned up to that point, I was able to swim a 1:16 which was A LOT faster than I expected and I felt as if I could have gone faster. Thanks for all your help!”

…my catch is smoother and there is less strain on my shoulders.
“Hi Kevin, I just wanted to thank you and your staff for your helpful insights, my swimming is progressing. My elbows are higher than before, my catch is smoother and there is less strain on my shoulders. I’m very pleased with the ease of efficiency due to dedication to the prescribed drills in Modules 1 and 2. The shark fin drill has especially contributed to my muscle memory of entering the water closer to my goggle line and a better extension/glide afterwards, thanks!! Eventually, I hope my times are better than a 1:40/100 yds. ”

…it all seemed to fall into place.
“I wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much your DVD and other web-based resources have helped me with my swimming. I’ve been a runner for years and got into triathlon back in 2011. I always struggled with the swim and tried all kinds of methods to improve: lessons, group sessions, and even a personal coach. Nothing seemed to help. In August I got your DVD and started using it, along with the TriSwimPro web site, to do the drills you showed. My weak spot has always been my kick. I could never seem to get it in sync with my stroke, so I always ended up dragging my legs, kicking just once per stroke, or “scissor-kicking” in a way that created drag. The kicking drills in the DVD helped me get a feel for the kick as I swam on my sides. Finally yesterday, it all seemed to fall into place. I was able to do a 6-beat kick and keep it in sync with my stroke. All of a sudden, swimming felt effortless, and I could actually feel my kick helping to propel me through the water. I can’t wait to get back into the pool today to reinforce these skills. I will definitely be recommending your DVD to friends who are struggling with swimming as I have for so long. Your videos have definitely helped me progress with my swimming, and I’m sure my tri times next summer will prove it!”

…something really clicked yesterday.
“I want to thank you for your coaching! I just wanted to let you know that something really clicked yesterday and I dropped my single arm stroke cycle from an average of 26 to 14 at the 25 yard pool. A nearly 40% improvement literally overnight! I just couldn’t believe the sensation of gliding, rolling, etc! Thank you for helping me enjoy swimming for the rest of my life!”

…was able to go into the swim with confidence.
“I used the Essentials program for my first triathlon swim and it was excellent training. I was able to go into the swim with confidence that I would be able to swim the distance, although not in record time – but be confident that I could confidently participate. Now that I have seen the TriSwim Pro, I would say the same thing – the drills were excellent in developing great technique. The videos are great so that you can see exactly what it is you are supposed to be doing. I like with the TriSwim that you have access to others’ experiences, which sometimes are similar to that which I have experienced, and ultimately helps with overall learning and increased confidence. This program also allows me to train when it’s convenient for me & not to have to train according to someone else’s schedule – yay!”
– Vivienne Kennedy
…so encouraged I am considering stepping up my training.
“Overall I attribute my swimming improvement to this program. I improved my time on a 200 meter swim by 45 seconds. I never would have accomplished this without your program. I signed up for my first open water triathlon last year before I had any experience with Tri Swim Pro. I was very concerned about the open water swim. However, given the improvements I have seen so far in my swimming, I am now looking forward to training for that event. I am so encouraged I am considering stepping up my training to an Olympic Triathlon distance swim.”
– Manny Hernandez
…so much stronger and more confident in the water.
“Super helpful. I am just a VERY concrete person 🙂
I am loving your drills and workouts. I feel so much stronger and more confident in the water. I had a tri coach for over a year and learned a lot, but I’ve learned more from your site in 4 months about swimming that I ever learned. THANK YOU!!!”
