HOW I WORK
I grew up around the water. I started taking swimming lessons at 6 months old and started swimming competitively in summer league by the time I was 6 years old. I was a distance swimmer so I mainly swam the longer yardage swims, primarily the 1500. In 2016, I returned to the pool as a swim instructor for a year round kids program. But frankly, I enjoy working with adults the best.
In the last few years, I have learned every client arrives at the pool with diverse needs. I break my training up into three main components which are 1) body awareness & body balance, 2) stroke mechanics, and 3) yardage. I combine elements from other disciplines as well such as yoga, aquatic physical therapy, whole food nutrition, and land based weigh training to design the best all around program for my clients.
Swimming is much more than competitions, times and athletic achievements. It can stimulate the mind and harmonize the emotions, build cardiovascular endurance and encourage social relationships. As a trainer, for both online and offline clients I seek to create a optimal learning environment by listening, observing and engaging with the individuals I am working with. As result, we have the freedom to course correct as needed.
