I first began swimming at the masters level under coach Gerry in 1999 and have enjoyed his workouts for more than a decade. I have a fair amount of personal experience with swim coaches as I swam competitively for 17 years and have competed at the national level. Gerry has an excellent level of background experience within the sport and he is one of most talented, engaging and knowledgeable coaches with whom I have ever swum. It is not an easy thing to make following the black line on the bottom of the pool a stimulating experience, but Coach Gerry continues to sustain that excitement in myself as well as other team members. Swimming with him has been a great experience and I am looking forward to swimming with Gerry at the new Pacific Palisades location.
