Since 1988, thousands of adults have learned to swim better, faster, and easier – while enjoying it more – by following Total Immersion founder Terry Laughlin’s unique instruction techniques. Now, those techniques are available to the home viewer for the first time on this series of five DVDs.
Unique features of the Total Immersion series DVDs:
- Live lesson with Terry Laughlin: Terry demonstrates and explains every step, what it contributes to the overall skill and how it relates to other skills in the sequence. It’s like having a personal lesson with Terry.
- Beneath the Surface: These segments were shot in a current pool, with both camera and swimmer stationary, allowing for lengthy study of the movements. They shot these segments from six different underwater and surface angles, including directly underneath and overhead. No instructional video has ever examined the strokes so thoroughly.
- TI Coaches Practice: Watch TI coaches practice the key drills and the whole stroke, also from multiple angles. Also shows examples of imperfect skills illustrating likely stroke and drill errors to watch out for.
- For Boomers: This section, never before included in any instructional video shows how to adapt your swimming to be better than ever in middle age. Though you may not be as strong or as supple as you were at 25, like Terry you can still swim your best by following the tips in this section.
- Running time – approximately 45 minutes each
Happy Laps: Happy Laps is the first TI self-help tool to address the real basics: how do I swim without fear of sinking, how do I breathe in water, and how do I move with such efficiency that I will be able to swim graceful, nearly effortless laps for health, fitness or pleasure with absolute comfort and confidence. Happy Laps can turn anyone into a swimmer. This self-teaching DVD offers a simple, clear, common-sense approach to learning to move through the water easily, comfortably, and so pleasurably that your practice time becomes the healthiest, most rewarding, part of your day. Happy Laps will show you, step by step, a completely fresh way to move through the water, a way guaranteed to make swimming easier than anything you’ve tried before. $29.99
Freestyle Made Easy: Total Immersion: Freestyle Made Easy illustrates everything about freestyle swimming – how to kick efficiently; every part of the stroke – entry, catch, finish, exit and recovery; how to breathe – in the pool and in open water; and how to do both the relaxing open turn and the fast flip turn. To allow you to study all of this carefully, the DVD uses more views (surface, underwater, front, and directly overhead), more slow-motion and more stop action than any DVD produced before. Freestyle Made Easy provides the whole picture on smart Freestyle. $39.99
