SwimStrong Dryland inspires and changes the lives of competitive swimmers through strength training, nutrition & wellness, motivation and care.
I noticed I got stronger overall and had great results in and out of the pool. [SSDL] also addressed my muscle weaknesses and imbalances which helped with the chronic knee pains I’ve had since I was little. SSDL definitely made me a more positive swimmer. Apart from the physical benefits like rehab resources, getting stronger, and better mobility, I noticed that with the mindset tips and techniques I was able to not get stuck in my head before big races. I [also] learned how to reframe my thoughts in way that would benefit me. That really eased the pressure I placed on myself, and I saw better results at meets.
I had undeniably the greatest year of my swimming career when I began working with the SwimStrong team. My overall athleticism skyrocketed. I was performing exercises I previously couldn't with ease. I won meets I didn't even think I would qualify for, went times I didn't even dare to think about going, and built a racing mentality that propelled me to further success. Along with this, I met so many people. I have so many friends in the swimming community I met through SSDL, and still talk to them all the time. The success I saw in the pool after working with SwimStrong was also very evident. Every single aspect of my stroke, especially those of which correlate to athletic ability, improved greatly. My favorite of which was my newfound ability to hold a strong six beat kick for my entire 200 free and hold my pullouts to 15 meters on every turn. The support from the team you receive is unparalleled. At any moment, I could reach out to SSDL with questions or need for support, no matter which aspect of the sport it was related to. Whether it was eating healthier, improving hip mobility, overcoming a pinch in my shoulder, or dealing with pre-meet nerves, the coaching opportunities were countless.
After joining SSDL, I have gotten physically stronger, which I have benefited from so much in the water. The overall impact I have gotten from SSDL is I have become physically stronger, and I have lifelong friendships with other elite athletes who know what it takes to become the best of the best!
Doing Dryland with SwimStrong for me is something I need. I know that I wouldn’t be where I am without it. I think the best thing about being with SwimStrong is the community and support we get. We all work hard as a family, and have the feeling of being a hard working family.
