1st place 35-39 Los Angeles Triathlon. 2nd place 35-39 Malibu classic triathlon. USAT All American Honors 2010.
I was introduced to Gerry Rodrigues by my professional triathlon coach, Matt Dixon(Purple Patch Fitness) to help improve my swim – it was respectable, but still the weakest of my three triathlon disciplines. I came to Coach Gerry at the start of 2010. My swim form and fitness improved dramatically. I can confidently go into a race now, knowing that I’ll come out of the water with the first group of swimmers, setting me up for a great bike. My times for my 70.3 swim (1.2mi), improved by almost 2 minutes while my Olympic time, improved by almost one and a half minutes. This was from February – September 2010 and I’m happy to say, my swim is now on par with my bike and run.
My training would not be complete without the instruction and guidance of Coach Gerry. He is, in my humble opinion, the best at what he does. Coach Gerry instills a sense of confidence in one’s ability to race, and be “race ready”, for open water swimming.
