I started swimming with Gerry Rodrigues last year when a friend of mine said if I wanted to get faster and have more fun with my swim then I needed to take a few lessons from the best. At the time I had completed one triathlon and was thinking of doing more but because of my age (50) I felt I should l have started a long time ago to be any good. After swimming with Gerry for a few months my stroke got stronger – more efficient- I was having more fun swimming than ever before. He also coached me in the ocean and all of a sudden I felt like I could do these triathlons. Because of Gerry I have now completed 3 triathlons and placed in the top 15 in my age group. Anyone who wants to become a better swimmer and enjoy it more should absolutely swim with Gerry.
