Book Description: Simon Schuster Ltd, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 234 x 188 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. Even though swimming is the closest thing to a perfect exercise you can name, too few people experience its full benefits. That s because most find themselves fighting to stay afloat, struggling for air, and feeling exhausted after just a lap or two, all of which makes this perfect exercise frustrating, laborious, and complicated. For the past fifteen years, veteran swim coach Terry Laughlin has been teaching adults how to swim better - and enjoy it more - by using his simple and original techniques. Laughlin turns traditional swimming beliefs inside out as he explains that it s technique - not athletic ability - that makes a strong swimmer. Laughlin teaches Fishlike Swimming, focusing on slipping through the water rather than using muscle to overpower it. The key is working with the water, not against it - learning to swim ever faster and farther without losing a sense of flow, grace, economy, and balance. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780743253437
