Details: Your Ultimate "Lifehack" Although 70% of the earth’s surface is water, most of the world’s population cannot swim. Even in Western countries, about half of adults are uncomfortable spending any time in the deep end of a swimming pool, and even more would be anxious jumping into a body of open, deep water well away from shore. Are you intimidated by waves, wind, cold water, dark water, or just being "out there"? If this describes you, this book can change that. As a long time director of Canada's largest and longest running open water swim event, author Mark Fromberg has also coached and prepared hundreds of swimming newcomers for open water success. His medical background and his experience both as a triathlete and as a director of several triathlon medical tents add a wealth of open water experience and important physiological principles to this book.
A Preview of What You Will Learn The training concepts outlined will enable swimmers to settle their anxieties with adaptive strategies to become more confident in the various conditions of open water. The exercises and concepts outlined are sequential, and easy to understand, and can be learned quickly if you allow yourself to think differently about your relationship with water. Once you realize that open water is not out to get you, and that you need only to work with it, and not fight it, you will find your open water mojo as your confidence builds and your skillset develops, and you will enjoy swimming like you never have before.
...And It Might Even Change Your Life And it doesn't end there. Once you have attained the milestones described in this book, your journey in becoming comfortable and confident in open water can have significant and unexpected benefits—you will find swimming “in the wild” calming, meditative, and ironically, grounding, providing newfound confidence that can spill over into the rest of your life. And you will have discovered a great, natural place to escape to, a whole new realm available to you, to get away from the incessant noise that is in the background of most of our lives. Once there, the pool will never feel the same.
