I have swum with Gerry Rodriques in his capacity as both a private coach and as the leader of the UCLA Bruin Masters for over 15 years. As one of the original team members, I saw from the beginning how Gerry created a dynasty of amazing swimmers of every age and ability. Over the years, Gerry’s tireless dedication and enthusiasm made our workouts a fun and memorable experience. His personalized expert instruction and creative drills improved my times to the point where I, a recent convert to serious swimming, was in the top five out of the water in my age group in almost every triathlon I entered. Many of my fellow Bruin Masters team mates became close friends of mine, and his workouts made swimming one of the most challenging yet pleasurable activities of my long “weekend warrior” athletic career. Whether you’re a former All-American or someone who is just looking for a great workout in the water, you can’t do better than “Coach Gerry”.
