Float in water

Hello guys,

I am a swimmer just like you guys, trying to get better at all aspects of swimming form and health everytime I hit the water.

For both new and returning swimmers I’ve learned the benefit in trading knowledge and experience between different levels throughout your swimming journey regardless of your swimming ability. You are embarking on a life-changing process, so why shouldn’t we all try to help eachother out.

In my personal weekly blogs and articles I will try do what I can to tell you all I have learned in my 20 years of swimming and open up new channels for all of you to comment and share your own tips and experiences as well. Learning swimming will add new victories and failures in your athletic life, but we at Your Personal Swim Coach are here to help you through it all..you might even be able to implement these tips today or else before your next lesson, so let’s get started.

These first articles are written as introductions to each of swimmings biggest pillars: nutrition, strength-building, technique, and your own human journey through it all. In the following weeks I will continue to write on all these subjects regularly to guide you on your YSPC journey and beyond, so look be sure to stay up to date on the website and our forams for more articles like this in the near future..and enjoy implementing their tips in your own life
