TOTAL IMMERSION

Total Immersion is the world's foremost swimming instruction founded by Terry Laughlin. Terrys' genius is to take one of the most technical of all sports and produce a step by step pattern for success to teach you how to 'do it' like a pro - that is to say, move through the water instead of moving water around!

Human beings are not natural swimmers. According to Terry, we’re 'hard wired' to fight against water. The big mistake most swimmers make is trying to overpower it. Since water is approximately 880 times denser than air, moving through it creates a lot of resistance and drag.  Raw power is counterproductive; it’s like pushing against a wall. It is said that 95% of energy is wasted when swimming. Together with traditional teaching methods such as a focus on kicking, pulling and endless tiring laps, it’s no wonder that so many people struggle with swimming and hit that glass ceiling.
