Get Wet, Get Fit: The Complete Guide to Getting a Swimmers Body

Some of us want to look good and others dream of having the body of a Olympic swimmer male or female. This book by Megan Quann Jendrick, seems to be able to give you that body and form you always dreamed of.
Jendrick has set 26 American records and one World record in her swimming career up to date. She is a ten-time National champion and ten-time US Open champion.
In 2000, after being the youngest medalist on the US Olympic swim team with gold in the 100-meter breaststroke, Megan was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine, becoming one of few women to hold that honor.

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.
