Publisher's Summary

Of all three disciplines in triathlon, swimming is the one dreaded the most by age-group triathletes, many of whom have had little formal experience in the water. Fortunately, of the three sports, swimming might be the easiest in which to make improvements.

Triathlon Swimming Foundations provides a simple, straightforward system developed By a triathlete for triathletes, allowing them to become comfortable and confident in the water using a system of triathlon-specific drills and techniques. 

Triathletes who follow this program are sure to breathe easily in the water without panic, eliminate sinking legs, gain previously elusive speed, and swim smoothly in a triathlon from the start line right into transition, with plenty of energy left to take on the rest of the race.
 

“Triathlon Taren” Gesell is a triathlete who has become known for his wildly popular Triathlon Taren YouTube page, Instagram account and podcast, where he shares tips, tricks, hacks and time-tested knowledge to help age-groupers get to their start lines confident and their finish lines strong. Based in Winnipeg, Canada, Triathlon Taren is also the head coach of Team Trainiac, a training platform supporting a growing community of triathletes from all around the world.

Buy The Hard Copy Instead

The book had good information and a basic training plan to incorporate the drills. He referenced a web page to see the videos of the drills and it is good, but anything more requires you to buy a membership for his coaching.

I’d like to have a free pdf of the plan to do the drills, some audiobooks offer this free download of key pages of the book with the purchase of the audiobook. I’ve tried contacting the author but his website and Facebook page only give you online access to him if you buy his coaching. Otherwise you have to snail mail him in Canada.
