Editorial Review

Product Description
Two-time Olympic gold medalist Megan Quann Jendrick and her husband and personal trainer offer a complete training regimen -- including a diet program -- that will enable everyone to achieve the body of their dreams through swimming.

Elite-level swimmers share a common trait -- their toned, shapely bodies. Get Wet, Get Fit shows how anyone, regardless of age or size, can use swimming to get into the best condition of their lives. The Jendricks offer detailed instructions along with underwater photographs that illustrate how to achieve proper form and technique for the four basic strokes -- backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and freestyle.

But unlike the average training manual or how-to book, Get Wet, Get Fit also provides:

  • Training regimens for everyone from beginners to Olympic-level competitors, including dynamic drills for strengthening, fat loss, and endurance
  • Physique-building workout routines (with and without weights) for dry land
  • A complete diet plan, including tempting recipes and menus (swimmers need carbohydrates, so this is a diet to love)
  • Tips from world-class swimmers

Low impact and gentle on the joints, swimming is one of the most enjoyable and exhilarating ways to exercise, but Get Wet, Get Fit shows how it can also be one of the most effective ways to get your body into top shape. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything I needed it to be
This book is Everything I needed it to be as far as giving me tips and advice. I was very happy with the hearty nutrition section as well as the extensive stroke instruction.

Very easy to read, very pleasant tone, very informative.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm better after the first day
I really like this book because you dont have to read it straight through. I just flipped through and picked up some stuff that looked interesting and took it to the pool and the tips were really good and effective from the start. Would definitely suggest anyone who wants to swim faster or get in shape get this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Average General Swimming Book
First of all, the title is mis-leading. This book does not have much to do with fitness, or getting a Swimmer's Body. But it teaches basic swimming from the point of a Olympic gold medalist. There are some helpful tips, but this book is not deep. Still worth reading.

4-0 out of 5 stars Insightful
This book is well thought out and written . The workouts are good but it would have been better to teach how t create your own workouts.
Nice information well presented still worth reading and owning

5-0 out of 5 stars Getting there
Been following the program in the book. First off I am not a swimmer, but I am getting there. And I'm losing weight and feeling pretty good. ... Read more
