ONE WITH THE OCEAN

The single non-negotiable thing in my life is the ocean. Being on it, in it, near it, it's smells, tastes, sounds of the waves; this is my inspiration to do and create. On a planet that is 70% water, it seems natural, if not necessary, to want to explore the expansive sea. My greatest passion is sharing the experience of the ocean with others, helping them to find comfort and confidence in the water.

After years away from the water, Bryan’s attention to detail and form to function helped me to quickly gain the confidence in the pool and open water that I felt many years ago as a child. Thank you Bryan, you are absolutely the best.
— Barbi Conner
Bryan can quickly see where my stroke needs adjustment and more importantly, can communicate how and why. I truly value our sessions!
— Jeff Pickering
Bryan did a masterful job of first building and then expertly walking me through our open water sessions in preparation for my first triathlon. I look forward to each session now, with the experience of becoming a significantly better swimmer in each hour we spend in the water.
— Greg Huntoon
Bryan is the real deal! From beginners to long-time swimmers, Bryan has the knowledge and expertise to improve your swimming. He’s great at breaking down stroke mechanics and body position in an easy to follow manner. You can’t go wrong working with him!
— Chris Axley
My experience with Bryan has been very positive. After years of disappointing triathlon swims, Bryan taught me how to swim much more efficiently.
— Robert Rumpler
Thank you for making what is really a complex sport, achievable. Your ability to teach, articulate proper technique and make hard core swim workouts fun in both the pool and open water is an absolute gift! I am still in awe that through your teaching and encouragement you graduated me from sprint distances in the pool to Half Ironman distance in the open water, truly making what seemed to be an insurmountable goal a reality! You are the best!
— David French
After years of swimming, with very limited formal training, I was lucky to find Bryan. In a matter of just a few weeks, I could feel a complete shift in how I moved in the water. My stroke felt more fluid and powerful. With his clear, concise direction and expertise, Bryan can help you to recognize your weaknesses and make the adjustments needed to significantly improve your swimming.
— China Adams
A few lessons with Bryan was a true game changer in my swim and probably the biggest bang-for-the-buck investment you can make in improving your time in a triathlon. I had major gains in speed at an easier effort level, and in my last Ironman I hit the bike feeling fresher than I ever had before. Bryan is a dedicated, thoughtful and engaging swim coach and I can’t recommend highly enough.
— Eric Reavis
Working one-on-one with Bryan was the foundational part in my understanding of how the mind, breath, and stroke interconnect. He does an excellent job explaining how each part of the stroke connects and was patient in helping me progressively break down how each part of the stroke effects my movement through the water. Joining Bryan through both his swim squads and open water swimming clinics further expressed Bryan’s expertise in open water swimming. Through focused workouts that utilize open water swimming tactics he helped me develop my stroke to work in a more advantageous and efficient manner.
— Caitlin Standifer
Bryan has made swimming fun and accessible! It’s a highly technical activity that Bryan was able to break down and teach effectively and to my skill level as a beginner. He works individually with you on your mechanics and helps you achieve your goals, whatever they may be. I went from founding in the water to swimming miles comfortably. Highly recommended!
