“I have had the honor of working side by side with Geoff Glaser for over 2 years at a learn-to-swim school for inner-city kids… Geoff simply has a gift of being able to connect with kids and not only teach them how to swim, but… improve confidence and develop pride in accomplishing what others thought impossible. His knowledge of swimming combined with his enthusiastic personality is a rare find.”
–Mark Henderson, U.S. Olympic Swimmer & Gold Medalist
“Jeff Commings has a wealth of knowledge about the aerobic and anaerobic systems of the human body and how to train them. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him at several swim clinics, and his ease with people and understanding of the sum total of material makes him an impressive teacher!”
-BJ Bedford-Miller, U.S. Olympic Swimmer & Gold Medalist
