Dear Fellow Swimmer, 


You’ve probably watched some graceful swimmer glide ride by you in the next lane, seemingly swimming with twice the speed and half the effort.


When you asked a fellow swimmer or coach how they did that, you were probably told that some people just have a great feel for the water.  


The flipside is that some people just don’t, and there’s nothing that can be done about it.


I’m here to tell you that’s wrong.  VERY wrong.


With the right approach, anyone can improve their feel for the water, often dramatically.


Who am I to write this book and why should you listen to me?


I worked with Olympians and NCAA Champions.  I’ve seen what the best do, up close and in person, and I’ve helped them get better.


More for you importantly, I’ve work with a lot of swimmers that you’ve never heard of, swimmers everyone else dismissed as ‘talentless’ and having no ‘feel for the water’.  


Unlike everyone else, I refused to believe that a swimmer couldn’t improve their feel for the water.  I believed they could, and I believed they could do so dramatically.  


I’ve worked with a lot of swimmers that I was told ‘don’t have it’.  I subsequently helped to swimmer faster than they ever had in their life, shattering their personal bests after being told they would never do so again.


Over the course of my coaching career, I’ve been determined to help EVERY swimmer I coach swim faster, not just the ‘talented’ ones.  


I watched underwater video of championship winning and world record breaking swims countless times, frame by frame.  


I read all the swimming research.  

I read every article I could find written by swim coaches.  

I read every book I could find written by swim coaches.  

I watched every instructional video produced by a swim coach.  

I read everything I could about skill development.  

I consulted with motor learning researchers.  


Over the years, using all of these sources of information, coupled with A LOT of trial and a lot of error, I developed a system to reliably develop a swimmer’s feel for the water.


I want to share that system with you.  


I’ll show you all the tools and all steps.  I’ll show you the sets.  I’ll show you how to design your own sets.

Developing Your Feel For the Water2.jpg

In the first half of the book, we’ll explore the theory behind improving your feel for the water.  


It’s all about the why and the what.  


Understanding the background makes it much easier to adapt and modify the approach you’ll take in your specific circumstance.

  • The problems with most approaches that try to improve your feel for the water, and the solutions I use to overcome these challenges.

  • All the tools of the trade for improving your feel for the water.  I’m going to give you all of the options so you can find what works best for you.

  • The critical numbers you’ll need to pay attention to make sure you’re what you’re learning is improving your performance, and forcing you to stretch your abilities.

  • How to use sculling to develop the skill of creating pressure on the water.

  • The strategies for manipulating the size of your hands to improve how they interact with the water.

  • When you use standard training equipment as a strategic boost for improving your feel for the water.  As importantly, you’ll learn when NOT to use the same equipment, and why.

  • How swimming against resistance can turbocharge all of your efforts at improving your feel, regardless of what you use for resistance.

  • The way to use multiple tools in conjunction to magnify your results and you learning opportunities.


The second half of the book is what you’ve been waiting, the sets you can use TODAY to improve your feel for the water.  In this half of the book, we’ll put it all into practice.  You’ll discover-


  • How to get started with improving your feel for the water today.

  • Sample sets using all of the strategies described in part 1.  There are progressive levels of difficulty so you can have sets to look work on as you continue to improve.

  • The rules for creating your own sets using any strategy you like.  While the sample sets may take your far, eventually you’ll want something designed for YOU, and you’ll need to know how to do it.  We’ll go through the simple and straight forward steps that result in great sets ever time.

  • Guidelines for subtly modifying sets to maximize the impact on your feel for the water.  If you’re part of a club where a coach is writing your sets, you can use these guidelines to make small adjustments that make major differences in improving your feel for the water, all without any disruption to your practice.

  • 16 different ways to set up a training week depending on how your goals and how often you want to swim.  With all the different strategies you could use and goals you might have, it’s important to set up your training schedule in a way that puts you in the best position to learn.

  • Troubleshooting common problems swimmers run into on their quest for an improved feel for the water.

The only risk you’ll take is missing out on this great information if you choose not to purchase this book.


If you’re still not sure if this book is right for you…


Here a few BIG reasons you need this book:


Swimming is a SKILL sport.  


You CANNOT out-train bad skills.


What’s the foundational skill that makes every attempt at specific skills more effective?  


Your feel for the water.  

If you can improve your feel for the water, ALL of your ability to learn any other skill will improve.  


If you don’t, you’re leaving potential performance in the pool that you’re not going to be able to get in other ways.


Time and energy are limited.  


You only have so much time, and you only have so much energy.  


You probably have a job.  

You might have a family.  

You probably have other hobbies.  

You might participate in other sports.  

You might have all of these things.  


If you want to accomplish your goals, you’re going to need to be ruthlessly efficient.  


Everything in this book is designed to work as effectively and efficiently as anything I’ve seen, and I’ve seen it all and read it all.


This book will save you money.  


Time and energy are worth money.  


If you hire a coach, they’re going to be a lot more expensive on an hourly basis.  


Worse still, they are going to use the ‘tried and true’ methods…that don’t work.  


This is information you’re not going to find anywhere else.  


No one else has put in the effort to make a system that works, and they’re not selling it to you.  


Even if you were to hire me, this book is a steal compared to working with me one-on-one.  


I’m giving you my top strategies.


A great feel for the water is not a gift bestowed on a few chosen individuals, forever out of reach for the rest of us.  


It’s a skill that can be learned, and after years of experimentation, I’ve broken down exactly how to that in an easy to understand format that any swimmer can benefit from.  


Buy this book, and that swimmer will be YOU.
