Swim Speed Workouts for Swimmers and Triathletes: The Breakout Plan for Your Fastest Freestyle [With 50 Waterproof Workout Cards]

Sheila Taormina is one of a handful of athletes who have competed in four Olympic games and the only woman in the world to have competed in three distinctly different sports-swimming, triathlon, and modern pentathlon. Although only 5' 2", Taormina refined her exceptional freestyle swim technique to win a gold medal in the 1996 Olympics and the 2004 ITU triathlon world championship. For 15 years, Taormina has coached elite and age-group swimmers and triathletes to develop the strong underwater pull that propelled her to the pinnacle of athletic success in her racing career. Taormina conducts dozens of swim clinics around the world each year.

"The concept of 'holding' water and generating propulsion is fundamental to swimming performance, and Sheila's book clearly unlocks the secrets of this through words and vivid underwater photos. It is what every top swimmer trains and searches for each day at practice, and it is what allowed me to win Olympic medals as a teenager and into my 40s." -- Dara Torres, 12-time Olympic medalist "Sheila's book "Swim Speed Secrets" is the best swim manual--PERIOD!" -- Ashley Whitney, Olympic Gold Medalist "Sheila T. is just 5' 2" but she swims like she is 6' 2."

Her knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm are unmatched. Her book is the best resource out there to help all different types of athletes improve their swim." -- Siri Lindley, ITU Triathlon World Champion and coach to triathlon world champions and Olympic medalists "Sheila possesses a great depth of knowledge and passion about swimming that she has often shared with me and many other athletes.
