Total Immersion: A skill-based approach to swimming better
Whatever your reasons for swimmingrecreation, fitness, endurance, or speed--your chances of success and satisfaction will increase enormously if you approach swimming as a game of skillrather than test of endurance. In the Total Immersion method, fitness happens while you learn and improve skills.
Statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention illuminate why skill is essential:
Only a third of American adults can swim the length of a 25-yard pool.
And just two percent can swim a continuous quarter-mile.
The millions who cant complete a single pool length arent lacking fitness: Swimming 25 yards takes no more fitness than walking 100 strides!
What they lack is skillbut not just any kind of skill. Swimming is an aquatic skill, while humans are terrestrial mammals.
Total Immersion instruction puts you at ease in the water, then teaches you to cleverly adapt human anatomy to swim more like an aquatic mammal.
Three Steps to Success
Total Immersion techniques of have been refined over 25 years with countless thousands of studentsmost of whom had little skill or experience.
We follow the same 3-step sequence of foundational skills with every student and every form of swimming. When you learn these skills youll be able to:
Swim farther and faster using less energy
Enjoy every stroke and improve continuously.
Swim free of injury or pain.
