"I signed up for a sprint triathlon and quickly learned I really had no idea what to do to make it farther than one length of the pool. I started with swim lessons at the Y, where I learned bilateral breathing and started overcoming some of my discomfort in the water. But my form was not good, and I had to fix it. Jeff got me going down the path of proper body positioning. He patiently assessed where I was and gave me the keys to horizontal balance. With his encouragement, I continued to chip away, developing my muscle memory and breathing skills. I couldn't have done it without him. I now swim a continuous 30 minutes at least twice a week."
