I have been swimming with Coach Gerry for 10 years. I started out a complete novice and had to be told to “lose the board shorts” for Masters swimming. Over the years I gained fitness, technique and open water experience from Gerry’s teachings. It culminated this summer where I placed first in my division in the Sprint distance Los Angeles Triathlon. More surprisingly, I also had the fastest swim time in my division. I NEVER would have thought that possible. Obviously, there is a method to Gerry’s madness!
