Swim better from a podcast?? Absolutely.

Episodes 4, 5, and 6 ought to be required listening for every triathlete. Real, specific advice on what's really important in the swim. Delivered with a clear (and fun and funny) style that makes it easy to visualize the techniques. They burst some myth bubbles, too, and help focus us all on what truly matters to be a better swimmer.

Listen, and listen real close.

This is the best triathlon swim podcast bar none. I look forward to what Jim and Jerry have to say each time a new episode comes out. Their advice has been outstanding and I truly have been fresh for the bike on all my races since I have started listening to this podcast.

Knowledgeable, relevant and fun

This is by far the most relevant and helpful swimming podcast I found for open water swimming. The hosts are super knowledgeable and they're fun to listen to.

Get your swim on with Tower 26

If you want to get faster at open water swimming this is the podcast to listen to. Jerry Rodriguez has broken down The science of open water swimming to a level where anyone can benefit. As a former collegiate swimmer (1970s) these podcasts have opened a new world of stroke technique that are without a shadow of doubt making me faster. The tower 26 program is spot on and I can’t recommend it more highly.

My husband and I will happily start the Gerry and Jim "fan club". We love these guys and their podcast. Great insight, interviews and advice - plus, a library of podcasts that can and should be repeated in order to become a better swimmer.

Great content, within the fluff

Love the knowledge and wisdom. Clearly experienced and wise coaches here. I love their advice and workouts. Not a subscriber, but I have no doubts their program works. As for the podcast? It’s 50% self-congratulatory banter 30% amazing content and 20% overt advertisement for Tower 26 coaching program. At least they’re upfront about it. Great guest interviews and a great Q&A with listeners. If they would trim the fat I’d give it 5 stars. Staying subscribed though as it’s one of the few legit tri coaching podcasts out there right now.

This is what I wish every podcast was!

Imagine if every podcaster first had to DO and SUCCEED at a world class level in their show's subject before broadcasting to the world. That's what Gerry and Jim have that makes this show so special. Gerry's depth of knowledge and ability to articulate is just unmatched. This show has made me a much, much better swimmer and has raised the bar of what I expect in a podcast.

Multi-tasking and triathlon

My husband and I are age group triathletes and like many, challenged by the swim. We both enjoy Gerry and Jim and use the poscasts as a way to enhance our knowledge, admittedly, while, working on other chores or doing ez spins on the bike. It is a great and informative resource. Turn off the TV and tune in.

Extremely informative!!

I listen to a lot of podcasts, and this is one if not my favorite podcast. I would echo other reviews in that ALL level triathletes will benefit from Gerry's wealth of knowledge.

Tower 26 Podcast

Great information on swimming, specifically triathlon swimming, distilled down. Gerry cuts through the noise of seemingly infinite, and sometimes contradictory, advice available on-line on improving swimming, and gives great recommendations and ways to think about the swimming training in simple but extremely well thought out terms.His philosophy that everything, every move you might do during a race, must be practiced, rehearsed is so spot on, and is consistent with motor learning and performance science.If you want to improve your swimming (open water/triathlon esp.) listening to these podcasts is time well spent.

The why and the hope!!!

It helps me process mentally which then translates physically (I hope) when I know why I am doing something. Gerry does just that in this podcast. The other thing he did here was give me hope when he spoke of the girl who is only 5"1' .... I mean I AM taller than that! It was fun and informative.Thank you Gerry and Jim and now that I have arrived in modern day times and figured out HOW to wirte a review, here I am!
