Gerry Rodrigues is simply the best coach that I’ve experienced in any sport. Not only does he provide the experience and expertise of a world-class coach, he also knows how to inspire less advanced swimmers to improve. My speed and technique improved dramatically in less than 1 year of training under Gerry. Having trained under other coaches, my speed simply did not improve in spite of weekly masters swim workouts. Under Gerry, I am a faster swimmer and the results are apparent. Yes, it took a lot of hard work on my part, but Gerry’s encouragement and teachings made all the difference. At races I used to be at the back of the pack, now I’m swimming with the better athletes. It’s a great feeling. Thanks Gerry.
