marathon runner making the transition to training for an Ironman I have
found the swim portion extremely daunting. I started off in a group
swim class once a week, and enjoyed the social aspect but I was not
progressing at all. After my first session with Todd I could breathe
bilaterally and by my third session I had decreased my stroke count from
27 to 22 per 25m. An amazing feeling. I felt stronger and faster, I was
shocked that I could improve that much so quickly! Todd consistently
tells me what I need to improve but always ensures I am aware of what I
do really well already. When we first met I could only swim about 100m
without stopping – but within a few weeks I can easily swim 1000m
straight and I'm doing 3000m workouts!!! Todd is a great coach and role
model and really makes you want to get in the water and do better. Thank
you for helping me gain confidence in the water and turning swimming
from a dreaded activity to one I love doing!" ~ Renate C.
Last year I began working with Todd to help prepare me for the
Kingston Tri (2000m swim). Todd's one-on-one coaching and nutrition plan
was a game changer. As I move from a novice to a more experienced
swimmer I am calling on Todd once more to help me prepare for Ironman Muskoka 70.3. Whatever the goal, whatever your swimming level, Todd will
have a plan for you." ~Peter D.
"As an age group triathlete I have been swimming on my own for just
over two years. I finally decided the time was right to look for a swim
coach to take my training to another level. Since working with Todd I
have gained valuable insight into my two biggest weaknesses; firstly
beginning to develop proper swim technique and secondly learning how to
build structured swim workouts that have greatly enhanced my fitness
level. My only regret now is not having started sooner! Looking forward
to seeing more good results, thanks Todd!" ~Colin M.
"I began working with Todd to improve my stroke efficiency for an
upcoming triathlon event. Todd is highly motivated, dedicated, and truly
cares about how well you progress. Within a few sessions I felt stronger
and technically better equipped for my upcoming race. Todd challenges
you to strive to be your best. I look forward to training with him again
for my 2013 season." ~Lynette T.
