Laughing has helped more adults to swim faster, more smoothly, and with less effort than any other swimming coach in the country. "Total Immersion," named for the popular workshops he gives across the country, will change the way you move your body through the water, Laughlin will take the way you swim and turn it inside out as you learn that it's technique — not athletic ability — that makes a strong swimmer.
