Swim Speed Workouts applies the principles of Taormina's influential swim technique book Swim Speed Secrets so swimmers and triathletes can get in the pool and get fast. 
Drawing from her 30-year racing and coaching career, Taormina's Swim Speed program is carefully designed to build freestyle swim speed one crucial step at a time. Over 16 weeks, swimmers and triathletes will swim high-impact workouts to build whole-body swimming fitness. Each waterproof swim workout card incorporates the Olympic swimming drills, kick sets, and drylands that develop speed in the world's fastest swimmers. Swimmers will refine their freestyle with the most effective hand entry, high-elbow catch, underwater pull, core drive, and propulsive kick. 
Swim Speed Workouts unlocks those secrets to swimming performance, building up swimmers and triathletes to breakthrough swim speed. 
'Swim Speed Workouts is the pool version of in-home workout videos. The cards can be used by beginning to experienced swimmers or triathletes training independently of a coach, or provide easy illustrations of drills and tubing exercises for coaches to share with their swimmers' — USA Swimming's SPLASH magazine
