I have had the pleasure of working with Gerry & Tower 26 off and on since 2010. I never thought I would say that I love swimming with a snorkel and a band, but Gerry’s positive enthusiasm has made these staples of my swim training! Gerry has a great talent and eye for open water swimming. He motivates swimmers of all abilities to achieve there personal best and seek improvement both in the pool, on land and in open water. It’s hard to not become a better swimmer or get excited about swimming when you are around him & the other Tower 26 swimmers and triathletes.

“Gerry is, without doubt, the best swim coach I have worked with – and there have been a few as I’ve been a competitive swimmer since 1990. Every session has a specific purpose and every swimmer knows they are being watched and assessed which means one thing: Gerry gets the best from you session after session. I have recently relocated to Santa Monica from the UK and one of the major draws of being based here is being able to work with Gerry. In less than two months my swim speed, efficiency and confidence have all soared and I am truly excited about what I can achieve in the future. I’m a firm believer that everyone has their calling in life: Gerry has found his and his innate talent as a coach has benefited – and will continue to benefit – scores of swimmers and triathletes for years to come.”

Experience: ,

After 25 years of being a pool swimmer Gerry has changed my open water mindset by encouraging me to think outside of the pool. Gerry has educated me on the strategies necessary to succeed and has taught me how to modify my pool skills in order to reach my potential as an open water swimmer. In addition to being an experienced and knowledgeable coach, Gerry is also a great human being who cares greatly about all of his athletes. I am fortunate to have Gerry as a resource and friend and look forward to working more with him in the future.
