I'm a very technical, hands on coach. The majority of the work I do is to (1) prevent injury, (2) increase efficiency, and (3) utilizing the entire body while swimming.

Injury Prevention:
All of my clients will warm up for the first ten to fifteen minutes of our sessions. This will include stretching, swimming and drilling before getting into the water. Having a proper warm up is essential to prevent injury, and have an effective training session.

Increasing Efficiency:
I focus a lot with my clients on making each stroke and each movement as powerful as possible--pulling as much water past your body as your body allows. This is done with a number of drills on stroke entry, exit and pull through.

Entire Body Movements:
Although swimmers are know for their broad backs, swimming is an entire body activity. I focus a lot on drills that utilize the entire body, thus decreasing drag and increasing speed. This is done with body positioning drills, both on and off the pool deck.

**All subject to change depending on the athletes ability.

Client Reviews

The dad of a young swimmer dealing with some challenges asked for words of encouragement. So, I passed along his message to Tom Luchsinger and Lauren Perdue. Took them each less than one hour to write the young girl a meaningful note. We work with athletes who go above and beyond all the time.
