Triathlon Coach Details

Coach Details
Coach: Cindy Eckert, M.Ed.
Company: Triathlon Swim School
Location: Fairfax (AND Sterling!) VA, VA
E-Mail: cindyeck@glassmile.net
URL: http://coming soon!
Services: I offer year round small group classes (4-10 athletes) in stroke technique for triathletes, aspiring triathletes and any other endurance athletes wanting to learn to swim better (meaning more efficiently AND faster!). The off-season especially IS the time to work on your technique if you want to swim faster next season. Most classes will meet 2-3 times per month so you can get consistent practice throughout the year but are not committed to every weekend. There will be Sunday AM classes at the George Mason Aquatic Center in Fairfax.  These classes are not for pure beginner swimmers but ARE for beginner triathletes - those who can swim a few laps (even if it is not pretty!) but have just never had any coaching in swimming for distance. In all of my classes, the learning environment is fun and definitely not the usual “drill, drill, drill” that you may have encountered before. Classes will also include some "dry-land" strength and flexibility to support your swimming stroke, mental strategies and “body care” techniques like use of massage balls and foam rolls for self massage.

Specialities: *SWIMMING!!!  ...  If you really want to improve your swimming get help from a swim coach who really understands swimming rather than a well meaning  triathlon coach who has just learned how to teach the same old drills!  LOOK US UP ON FB TO SEE PHOTOS OF MANY HAPPY TRIATHLETES WHO ARE SWIMMING FASTER!
Background: I have been involved with swimming my entire life, starting at 10 yrs old when my coach had the 10 y/o kids pair up with the 8 y/o kids for 1-on-1 lessons. Since then I have swum competitively for decades, from the junior national level to NCAA Div. 1 to Masters to a 15 year triathlon career. I have coached with US Swimming clubs, Masters Swimming, and have done 1-on-1 work with triathletes for about 15 years. I picked up a masters degree in exercise physiology along the way, a USAT triathlon coach certification, and have recently learned some very cool mental “flow” techniques from a former Australian freestyle ski coach. In my “day job”, I am Senior Trainer for a progressive personal training company in McLean where I have been for 16 years, teaching and coaching clients from elite athletes to rehab clients to be more fit, healthy and just move better. I am fascinated with human movement and have been learning a few new sports lately (rock climbing and kayaking) to help me understand the learning process better… So, I do have a few tricks up my sleeve.... I believe in teaching my swimmers to own their bodies and learn to really feel the water and move dynamically, not just do the same old drills…
