How Easy It Is To Slash Your Race Times In A Matter Of Weeks!
“I just came back from the pool after swimming my fastest 1000 meters ever and I was concentrating on form, not trying to go fast! I really enjoyed the lessons and working with you. I never imagined that I could swim so comfortably and feel so relaxed in the water. As I continue improve my ability to glide through the water I find myself looking forward to my swim workouts.”
– Ira Schulman, San Diego, CA (intermediate triathlete)

World Famous Swim Coach
Dear Dedicated Triathlete,
Do you know which part of triathlon the majority of triathletes struggle with, and why? I bet you do… You could be struggling with the same problem for the same reason. I’ll tell you about it shortly, but first, I want you to imagine this scene…
You are getting ready to race in a triathlon this morning. As you arrive at the event, there’s a cool mist hanging in the air.
The sun is still rising and there’s just a few puffy white clouds in the sky. As you were driving to the event, you heard the weather report: perfect skies, sunny, and 72 degrees… You couldn’t ask for better weather to do a triathlon.
You look around at your competitors and then gaze out over the water as you slip into your wetsuit. You felt really relaxed and confident as you were driving here. You’ve been training for months and feel like today could be the day you set a new personal record.
But then as you’re staring out over the water, you start getting that old feeling again.
A feeling of nervousness and butterflies.
You start thinking about the distance you have to swim. You begin wondering what the water conditions will be like today. Will the water be smooth… or rough? Perfectly warm… or shockingly cold?
You look around at everyone else getting ready for the swim. It looks like today’s race will be packed with contestants.
You remember your last race and start thinking all of the splashing that happens as everyone hits the water at once. There will be so many arms and legs flailing around you… you can’t help but wonder if you’ll get accidentally bumped into by another swimmer at the start of the event.
You remember how tired you were after the swim last time. As you were training for this event, you kept telling yourself that this time, things would be different.
You trained hard — probably the hardest you ever have.
But you never gave a second thought to the bike or run… just the swim.
You suddenly realize that it’s always been the swim that separates the great triathletes from the rest of the pack…
“I’ve been using your swim tips and techniques and I actually was first out of the water in the Long Beach Triathlon of women in my age division…this is an all time first for that! I’ve always been middle of the pack…I was shocked myself! I actually ended up first place for my age and 12th overall…I was pretty excited. Doing Hermosa Beach this weekend…hope the waves are small. I am from Iowa and don’t like big waves!”
– Sue Rigler, Manhattan Beach, CA
“I am now able to swim further than I ever have coming out of the water, a lot further up in the placings which is helping my bike (weakest leg) as I don’t need to stress about trying to make up time any more. I am really surprised when I hear people before tri’s talking as if they are so worried about getting through the swim… something I don’t have issues with now.”
-Vince Sesto, Melbourne, Australia
Chances are, your story may sound like this one.
I know what it’s like to be starting out in the Triathlon. Even though swimming is the shortest part of the race, many view it as a “necessary evil.”
Swimming is the most difficult part of a triathlon… especially for beginners.
Many triathletes leave the water feeling exhausted and discouraged. They wind up hoping they can catch their “second wind” as they do the bike or the run next.
Why do so many triathletes struggle with the swim?
The honest truth is… it’s not because they’re horrible swimmers. Many of them have no trouble swimming endless laps in their local pool.
It’s not because they’re out of shape… almost every triathlete shows up on race day in great physical condition.
Most swimmers waste energy trying to churn through the water… instead of moving the body forward. It’s as dramatic as trying to row a boat using your bare hands… instead of using top-of-the-line rowing oars.
Let’s face it: It’s no fun to compete in something that you know you don’t do well. It’s even more demoralizing to do that competition… do badly… and then try to find the energy to finish the other two parts of the race…don’t you think?
The stone-cold truth is… If you want to compete (and compete well) in Triathlons, then you have to make the swim your friend… and not your foe.
So how do you make the swim your friend…and even your best friend?
I’ll tell you but, first let me share with you a quick story…
“I’ve watched the DVD over and over…was 4th guy out of the water!”
“I wanted to let you know that I ordered your Essential Triathlon Swimming DVD about 2 months ago, because I decided to get into the sport of triathlon and it didn’t take long to find out that swimming was my weakest discipline.
I’ve watched the DVD over and over, and have been implementing the drills into my workouts. You really can tell the difference once you’re “doing it right”. Anyway, my first tri involved a 500M OWS. I entered the “First Timers” swim wave which consisted of 99 males. And I am excited to inform you that I was the 4th guy out of the water! 9min 25sec. Your drills really do work and have helped me develop a strong and efficient stroke.
Next, I’m going to order your complete guide so that I can be 1st out of the water! Thank you for the time and effort that you put into making these guides available to all of us.”
Texas City, TX USA (Triathlete)
Hi, my name is Kevin Koskella. I started swimming competitively at age 8 and continued through college at University of California-Davis. It was there where I achieved All-American status in both the freestyle and backstroke.
After college I joined the corporate workforce. Like many people, I spent my work time at work sitting in a cubicle farm. Outside of work, I focused my spare time training for triathlons and open swimming events, studying nutrition, and working on getting a personal training certification.
I was feeling pretty content with my life. I was earning a steady paycheck and still had time to focus on staying fit and healthy. My life was pretty stress-free and seemed like it was headed in the right direction.
But then in late 2000, something terrible happened…
I got laid off!
It turns out I wasn’t as valuable at work as I thought. I was just another employee who lost his job when the dot com company I worked for started failing.
I was devastated. I felt sick to my stomach.
But you see, losing my job might be the best thing that ever happened to me.
Let me explain.
After I got laid off, I got motivated. I didn’t want to ever work for a company that I cared nothing about, and wanted to do something impactful in my lifelong passion- swimming.
I took what I knew about swimming, personal training, and proper nutrition and I started coaching other adults in masters level swimming and one-on-one lessons back in 2001.
I realized that most people have poor technique in the water and are using way too much energy to swim.
I went back and reviewed some of the basic freestyle techniques that helped me achieve All-American status in college.
I started training athletes privately. It turns out that even early on, most of my students happened to be triathletes.
One of them was Jeff… a beginner triathlete.
Jeff presented a challenge.
While he has been cycling and running most of his life to get through his upcoming triathlon race… he could barely swim, yet alone complete the swim leg of the race!
But I rose to the challenge…and so did Jeff.
I started teaching him my energy-saving swim techniques. And while I was at it, I also started designing workout plans to help him get in top shape too.
I started studying the philosophies and techniques from some of the top swim coaches in the world. I tested everything I learned from them. What worked for me, I started using with Jeff and my other athletes. What didn’t work… well, I quickly discarded that and kept testing new ideas.
Jeff was my most beginner student, and yet, he whizzed through the drills and techniques I presented to him…I realized at that point that this stuff really works!
6 Weeks to success…
Within 6 weeks from the time we started working together, Jeff was going from the VERY back of the swimming pack to mid pack in his sprint and Olympic distance races…and most importantly, having much more energy for his strengths, the bike & run!
Within a few months, Jeff gained enough confidence to set his sights from Nearly Sinking in the Water to Becoming an Ironman Triathlete!
I felt like I did my job.
It didn’t take long until I had created my own system for training triathletes how to excel at the swim, based on what I was having Jeff and others do.
This system has enabled me to train triathletes — from beginner through professional — and help them become very good swimmers and even better triathletes within a short amount of time.
Pretty soon, the word started spreading and more people started contacting me for coaching.
Well, it didn’t take long for my schedule to become jam-packed. Before I knew it, I was turning away people who wanted my help because I didn’t have any openings in my schedule to offer them!
Finally, in 2003, I decided to offer help in an additional way. I took some of the techniques that I use with my coaching clients and I created an ebook called “The Complete Guide to Triathlon Swimming”.
Since then, thousands of people have eagerly grabbed it and many of them report new record times in their very next triathlon.
“…Have Had a Very Positive Impact On My Performance.”
“I have been meaning to give you some feedback on my evolution in swimming for some time. The drills and videos have had a very positive impact on my performance. One example would be the inability to swim 50 yards without having on the wall after the first 25. But the really cool thing is how much more efficient I have become. The drills form the core of my workouts.
Each day in the pool is an adventure in some type of breakthrough from the drills i do. While it has not been a cake walk , my proficiency doing the drills does effect my time for a set distance. One example would be doing 3×400 yards with a 1minute rest. Initially I could not maintain each 400 yard set at 8 minute pace. I could barely finish the last 400 in 10 minutes.
Through specific strength training drills and constant focus on technique over speed, I can now finish 6 x 400 feeling strong and ready for my run when I complete my pool workout. Some workouts call for over 3000 yards-no problem, I just ensure that the workouts are primarily keyed to technique work. My target race is St. Anthony’s in April.
Thanks Kevin for the great guidance.”
Tampa, FL USA (Triathlete)
When it comes to training for triathlons, I have never been comfortable with the traditional philosophies of “no pain, no gain”.
I really dislike the tough-guy jock mentality of “the more of an exercise you do, the better it will work”.
You see, the human body has its limits of what it can handle before it starts to break down. This breakdown is often called “over-training”.
I realized first with my own training — and later on with my coaching clients — that you can’t treat your swimming training the same way as you do for your cycling or running training.
Each part of the triathlon — swimming, running, and cycling — stresses the body differently… so you need to train differently for each leg.
As soon as I made that breakthrough, I realized the secret to…
While I was searching for different training tips, tactics, and techniques… I discovered a particular method of swimming that seemed very promising.
I started incorporating some of this method’s techniques and drills into my workouts. Pretty soon, I started adding it into my clinics and private lessons too.
Here’s what happened — I found this particular method helped my swimmers get more out of their strokes, swim faster, and more fluidly, while exerting less energy.
In other words, they were getting more results while doing less work!
So how do you start improving your swimming skills for your next triathlon?
If you’re a beginner looking for the best way to get started then there are limited resources available to you.
If you’re at the intermediate level and are looking to improve your skills, then I’m afraid to say it’s not much better.
Even if you have access to tri clubs in your area, many times these clubs fall short of offering any kind of true swim training plan.
Masters swim teams are a good place to go to get good workouts… but they’re rarely geared towards triathletes. Their focus is on doing lots of yardage and distance instead of offering technique help that works for the open swim.
But it’s not the fault of tri clubs or masters swim teams. Training for an open water triathlon swim is not the same as training for any other type of competitive swimming.
Open swimming requires more attention to using the proper technique rather than doing ordinary high yardage anaerobic workouts.
And that’s why after getting countless emails and customer requests, I created a system which any triathlete can use to improve their own swimming technique and lower their race times by 5 minutes without spending a lot of time, money or even energy…
At first, when people started emailing me and asking me if I would do a DVD on my swim training techniques, I wasn’t sure it was something I wanted to do.
You see, I already have a jam-packed schedule with swim coaching clients, writing a twice per month email newsletter, and answering questions from my Triathlon Swimming ebook.
Frankly, I wasn’t sure when I’d have the time to even film a training video!
But people kept asking me if I could create this type of instructional help. And then one night, I had a major revelation:
Most newer triathletes are overtaxing their bodies with the way they train. It’s not because they want to (who would want to deliberately overtrain?). It’s because they haven’t been taught correctly.
And when they learn incorrect form… it only sets them up for failure… injury… or both.
Everytime I watch an open swim or a triathlon and see dozens of competitors risking injury or becoming so frustrated that they decide to quit, it makes me angry… Angry because it doesn’t have to be this way… not when we are talking about a great sport that you and I absolutely love.
I realized that if I am truly a top-notch swim coach like my clients frequently say… then I need to help other triathletes too… and not just the ones who have the ability to train with me in person.
Most of all, I believe the training needs to be enjoyable and even fun. Because if it’s not enjoyable, then you won’t stick with it and I will have failed you as your swim coach.
Step 1: Technique Mastery.
Step 2: Open Water Swim Mastery. This is divided into two parts. First, you will discover quick & simple techniques to go from swimming in a pool to exceeding in the open water.
Then, you will find out the fastest way to make sure that you dramatically reduce your race day anxiety, and use any nervousness you have to your advantage for the swim!
I’ve broken this down into easy-to-follow steps so you don’t have to think much about it. Just follow along and you will start to build your confidence naturally and quickly.
Step 3: Workout Mastery. Finally, you will need to be doing the right workouts for a triathlon swim, as opposed to workouts meant for age group or typical masters swimmers.
Use either of two complete swim training plans to optimally prepare for your next Sprint, Olympic Distance, Half Ironman, or Ironman Distance race.
You will have confidence and ability that you can finish the swim strong with much more energy and shave your swim times down.
The Tri Swim Coach system consists of a workout program that starts from the beginning:
The Essential Triathlon Swimming DVD now includes access to additional online content. You will get an instant access to the Level 1 of our comprehensive, easy-to-follow, step-by-step TriSwim Pro Online Triathlon Swim Training Program, so you can start your training even before you receive your DVD in the mail.
You will get online access to:
You could spend hours researching different types of swimming techniques. You could spend even more time testing each of those techniques personally — and still not see any improvement in your race time.
You can find swimming tips for free — and discover they are either incomplete or don’t apply to triathlon style swimming.
You could join a masters swim team and add in a few sessions of one-on-one training… and spend hundreds of dollars each month.
You can buy another swim training video — only to find out it’s difficult to use… doesn’t have clear descriptions or explanations… or you find it takes a lot of time to use.
You don’t have to research swimming techniques… because I have done the research for you.
You don’t have to hire a coaching pro… because I have spent the time and expense to make sure the Triathlon Swimming Mastery program teaches you what a pro would.
You don’t have to worry about how easy a training system is to use… because I made my training system easy for anyone to use.
You don’t have to worry about spending your next car payment for swim training… because I made each level of the system affordable for everyone.
In fact, for a limited time, you can get your own copy of The Essential Triathlon Swimming DVD for the one-time investment of $37.
It’s a small investment in your triathlon skills that could literally shave minutes off your triathlon time and achieve the new record you always wanted to achieve while enjoying every second of the race.

You may be wondering why I would be willing to offer the Essential Triatlhon Swimming DVD for a mere fraction of what I could charge. The reason is simple.
When I see countless triathletes overtraining… putting in long hours in the pool… and then not enjoying the level of racing success that they should, it angers me.
I absolutely hate to see other people making the same swim technique mistakes that many of my swim coaching clients used to make… when it’s so easy to correct them.
Let’s face it: I know I can’t change the world… but if I can help a few people change their lives for the better by showing them how to become a more successful triathlete, then I will have made a positive difference.
That’s why I decided to create this DVD which will give a select group of triathletes a push in the right direction — so they can reach new levels of success race after race — and do it pain-free.
“…stayed relaxed in the water and stayed to the outside.”
“I just competed in the Rustman triathlon yesterday. I took about 50 seconds off my swim time, despite only doing your workouts for two weeks! It was Olympic distance. I stayed relaxed in the water and stayed to the outside… I thought I was going slow, but couldn’t believe I beat my old time when I got out of the water!”
“My husband and I bought your package and are doing the 1/2 Ironman training plan. I can’t wait to see how that goes!”

“I can swim now! It seems effortless…”
“Since beginning triathlon 3 yrs ago at age 62, I have fought with learning to swim effortlessly as I had seen those around me do so. It has always been a struggle & only conditioning would get me through long pool swims…then only to panic in the open water events with creative survival strokes to get out exhausted.”
“I can swim now! It seems effortless now, using your techniques. This morning, Did 400 warm-up, 200 fin side kick each, 200 fin to slice, 50 no-fin side kick each side, finished w/ non-stop 1000 all in 55min; thing is, I could have kept going but had patients to see.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”
