I have been swimming with GT Masters for nearly two years; I joined primarily in the summer of 2015 to get some additional swim coaching for an upcoming Ironman and have been a member ever since. The coaches have been very encouraging in helping me improve my swim technique, not only in front crawl, but with butterfly, breast and backstroke. Early last year, I broke my pelvis in a bicycle accident, I was able to get in the pool within 2 weeks and swim, with their help and assistance and I was back on my feet within 12 weeks. Swimming during my recovery was one of the best things I could have done.
In addition I have made some great friends – my “Swim Buddies”. We push each other while having fun at the same time. And when I have a competition coming up, they help push me to swim harder for my race.
