More About Coach Joanna

I work with beginner and seasoned triathletes to help them improve their technique based on their specific needs. I work with children who are on swim team looking to improve their strokes and technique. This is where nuances make a huge difference!
Each client has their own unique program. I do not use standard cut and paste plan that every person can do.

I work on breathing in the water so you can relax more in the water naturally.
I help you feel the water and work with your natural body motions to work with the water, rather than fighting it (and getting you exhausted in 25-50 yards)
If you need nutrition help, I can help with nutrition coaching as an additional service.
I do not work with children needing to learn how to swim.

I am elite triathlete for 19 years. 1st and 2nd in division at Ironman USA lake placid in 1999 and 2001. Not only placed in AG for years, and got Honorable Mention from USATriathlon for being in the top 1% of AG nationally. In addition, I have won several sprint races.
Currently not competing due to a hip injury.

Each lesson is different and each client will respond differently to the lesson plan. I work with clients individually . If the client doesn't understand the suggestion, I will demonstrate as needed so the concept is clear.

Client Reviews

Coach Joanna is an awesome swimming coach. In 4 lessons I was able to breathe correctly and make significant progress. The instructions have been on point and I am looking forward for more great lessons! I am confident that anyone looking to improve should be taught by the best!

I booked a lesson for my husband as a present, as we frequently swim to workout but have limited technique knowledge. Without knowing what he would want to work on, Joanna immediately identified breathing technique as a place to start and I was amazed how much they were able to accomplish in a half an hour! She was kind enough to meet us early for our lesson to help the sign in process. I highly recommend Joanna as a great coach who genuinely cares about helping an individual with whatever they need most!

Joanna was awesome to work with and super helpful. Look forward to more sessions to get my stroke down!

Coach Joanna transformed me from someone that could barely make it to the other end of the pool and back into someone that just completed a half mile swim in a Sprint Triathlon on December 1st 2018 at 58 years old. I could swim to the side of a pool, but was never able to swim laps or any distance so when I told people I signed up for a triathlon, they said I was crazy. I started by getting lessons at a local YMCA that just didn't seem to have me progressing, so I did a search for a Triathlon Coach and found Joanna on Coach Up. After the first lesson at a pool I had specific things to work on and with subsequent lessons, I built up my technique and confidence to where I swam more than a half mile before I traveled to my event. Joanna is a personable and direct coach that shows you exactly what to do and what not to do and that made all of the difference in the world to my swim event. Trying to get better? Set a fitness goal you want to achieve? This is the coach to help you realize your capabilities. Fred - Northeast Philly, PA

I had a great session with Coach Joanna! After just one session I feel much more comfortable breathing in the water. Coach Joanna is extremely personable and patient. I can't wait to complete more sessions with her to see my ability to swim improve significantly! Highly recommend Coach Joanna to anyone considering her.

She is very knowledgeable and very helpful. She helped in tuning my son's skills.

Joanna is a great coach! After just the first session with my daughters we have seen noticeable improvement in their swimming. Highly recommended!!

Coach Joanna was very helpful in making me more comfortable in the water. She also helped me to breathe properly for distance swimming. Really excited to keep working with her.

Coach Joanna has a very good approach to a complete novice swimmer . She was able to take me from being very intimidated by the pool to being very comfortable very quickly. Very personable , on time , and effective communication of instruction. After my first session I left with fundamentals to work on and confidence in my ability to do them.

Can't say enough good things about Coach Joanna! She's a highly experienced triathlete with a real eye for coaching. I came to Coach Joanna with nothing more than a 5-year-old day camper's knowledge of swim technique, and within the first 10 minutes of our first session, Coach Joanna was able to identify what I needed to work on and explain the concepts and drills to me in a way that instantly made sense, despite my near complete lack of background knowledge. Most importantly, Coach Joanna's coaching style made me want to stick with it and continue to improve. Highly recommend Coach Joanna for all athletes, beginners to elites!

Coach Joanna was great! She was able to pinpoint the trouble with my son's stroke and give him exercises to help him out. Her easygoing nature was relaxing and my son got along great with her.

My son Sam seemed to really take to the drills and his his technique improved almost immediately. Coach Joanna spoke to my son at his level and made him feel at ease right away.

Coach Joanna did a great job helping my daughter. She quickly assessed the technical issues and introduced adjustments that provided immediate and noticeable improvement.
