THE MASTERING FLOW APPROACH

How I help you go from where you are, to where you want to be.

LEARNING RATHER THAN TEACHING

I don’t teach you how to accomplish your aquatic goals.  I help you learn how to accomplish your aquatic goals.  The focus is on YOU.

PRINCIPLES RATHER THAN MODELS

Rather than providing a model to copy, I provide you with the principles you can apply to any situation.  This allows you to find the best way of swimming for YOU.

INTEGRATION RATHER THAN ISOLATION

Swimmers want to swim.  As much as possible, I help you learn while swimming, rather than focusing exclusively on ‘drills’.

LEARNING IS TRAINING

Rather than separating your technique and training, I show you how to train your technique.

QUESTIONS RATHER THAN ANSWERS

Swimmers often look to coaches for answers.  Instead, I ask the questions that help you find the answers that result in faster, easier, and better swimming.

ERRORS RATHER THAN PERFECTION

Learning is messy.  If you’re rehearsing perfection, you’re performing instead of learning.  If you’re making mistakes, you’re learning.  I help you make the ‘mistakes’ that result in progress.

SIMPLE RATHER THAN COMPLEX

Swimming is often made out to be needlessly complex.  I help you focus on exactly what to work on, rather than everything you could work on.
