Coach Gerry has an uncanny ability to get you to push yourself beyond your known limits. He doesn’t need to yell, make you angry, or use a cattle prod. Just being under his coaching makes you want to train really hard. Since I started with him, my improvements have taken me to brave the waters of Alcatraz Island, and now an Iron Man Triathlon is on the horizon. Hands down, he is the best swim coach that I have had.
