My son really enjoys the session with Coach Steve. My son learns quite a few things from Coach Steve, and he's very excited to future sessions. In talking with Steve, we found him very passionate about sharing his knowledge in swimming. He also gave great motivation talks to my son. We're looking forward to a fast, strong swimming future with Coach Steve.
My kids began going to coach Steve in April. I never new I could meet someone who talked more than me LOL :-) He is so unbelievably awesome with the kids. I have a 15 year old and a 8 year old training with Steve. I am one of those mom's who always want to be involved, but with swimming Steve takes over. It is obvious that his mind and passion is swimming and enjoys producing winners. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Alter only the second session I can see improvement in my kids. Cant wait until they start dropping those times and passing up the competition. But most exciting they are even more excited about it as well!
Finding Coach Steve was like hitting the jack pot. He is a mad scientist inventor who has built the most comprehensive gym in his own garage. He's very passionate and focused which inspires me to go further. I need every bit of it as I plan to swim the Catalina Channel with hardly any prior experience. Having Coach Steve, though, I feel gives me the best shot at beating the odds. He's an absolute character as well, never a dull moment. I highly, highly recommend you include Coach Steve if you plan to be a great swimmer.
My daughter (12) has over 4 years of competitive swimming experience and had participated and won top spots in JAG, WAG, JO's, Club Championships, and few other prestigious meets. She had numerous coaches in the past, but was totally blown away when she met Coach Steve. Coach Steve views swimming as both art and science and has designed and improvised myriads of tools/machines to help swimmers improve on their techniques and muscle strengths. In addition to swimming, he also have swimmers set academic goals, so they will be able to excel both in sports and school and become a better person. I would recommend Coach Steve to anyone who is serious about swimming.
Steve Friederang has been a constant source of knowledge and challenge for me with my coaching and training over an extended period of time. His ability to think outside the box and challenge the status quo and improve the coaching concepts of those fortunate enough to know him is well recognized by those who know him.
