    Watched pieces several times so far, and some of the practice exercises given are very helpful in improving technique.

    In triathlons, the swim has always been my slowest event, so I''m using this DVD to improve my stroke, increase my swim confidence, and hopefully gain some speed. It shows a step by step breakdown of the stroke to practice in increments.

    I view this CD frequently---at least weekly prior to my first workout.  It''s a great way to refresh on fundamentals with emphasis on good techniques.  There are language ques in the DVD that serve as reminders of the proper swim techniques.

    This is my first swim video.  I selected it because all the others advertised seem to be about swimming faster.  This video starts with basics to help someone like me who can swim but never was taught to swim with proper techniques.  I look at the video the day before I swim, most of the time just before I leave home to go to the athletic club.  The instructions are terrific because you can do what you see on the video as instructed and see that it works.  The instructions are simple to understand.  Getting the technique right is up to the swimmer.

    The program starts with getting relaxed in the water and being comfortable, and builds through eight lessons, your freestyle stroke.  Great instruction, excellent demonstrations and memorable words & phrases for when you get to the water.  So glad we got this because swimming is now easy and enjoyable; I wish I could find the same caring and thorough approach for cycling.  Only trouble is that the music lulls me to sleep sometimes; but I think I'm training-tired too!  Love TI!
