Great education for triathlon swimmers
This podcast is a great supplement to any triathlete's workout because you should not just do workouts you should know WHY you are doing them. There are a bunch of coaches out there, but nobody has Gerry's experience in coaching OPEN WATER and let's face it there are very few triathlons that happen in a pool. So while there is much work to be done in the pool, Gerry's prescription has the triathlete in mind, which I think is rare. I am lucky in that I live in LA and get to train with Gerry, so these podcasts reinforce his teaching. If you are newer to coached swimming (I learned how to swim when I was 3 but never swam in high school or college) there is a lot to learn. You should find a coach or a Master group to help you. It took me a while to learn the lingo and drills, but stick with it and it will work! What I think makes Gerry an amazing coach is that he is always ready to learn and experiment. He really knows what works but he believes there is always more to learn and ways to improve. That attitude comes across in his coaching whether it is deck side or in this podcast, but listening to the podcast is much less exhausting :-)Read full review »

More reviews of Triathlon Coaching with TOWER 26- Be Race Ready Podcast
Gerry and Jim are both very knowledgeable and they do give good info, however that is only about 20% of the show. I find myself fast forwarding through so much of the show to find the actual content.

Great info for the triathlete, especially for improving swim. Well done and very professional.

Best open water swimming podcast there is. Lots of very useful info here! As long as you are able to ignore Jim’s smuggy comments and loud voice, you will love this podcast!
