I recently completed an intensive one week training course in Coronado, CA to become an official Total Immersion Coach. This past week was just the beginning of my Total Immersion training, and I look forward to bringing what I learned back to Pittsburgh. To all my swimmers, I apologize it’s taken me so long to get this additional training. I’m am so excited to introduce you to not only the stroke work and mindfulness that I learned, but also the techniques of stroke modulation, finding your gears and tempo training. You can read about my week in a day by day diary in my blog right here (go to the menu, click on blog, then Total Immersion). Thanks to all the coaches who helped out, especially Terry Laughlin, Dave Cameron, Kim and Karen
Keep an eye out on the services page for Total Immersion Swim Training lessons and clinics, or email me if you would like to be placed on the short list for Total Immersion training.
I am a 42 year old that is trying to enjoy a few sprint tri’s per year, with the hope to do an Olympic soon; if I could just learn to swim. I spend a few hours per week in the pool when I’m training, but it’s obvious that I need lots of help. I’m usually one of the last swimmers out of the lake and I’m physically wiped. I spoke with a nice woman this morning at the pool and she recommended you (enthusiastically). I have heard of Total Immersion, but have never been coached (in any way, ever). Can you tell me what you think I can do short term to get ready for this season, and long term how can get more efficient and faster – and stay that way? Are there any openings in your schedule for lessons? Please let me know. I’m excited to know that there may be someone local that can help.
