Todd’s philosophy is to help anyone learn to swim more efficiently, effectively, and effortlessly so that all may have the life skill of swimming because "swimming is life." Todd wants you to enjoy the experience of swimming as much as he does. As they say, if you’ve seen one swimmer….you’ve only seen one swimmer. Todd’s coaching is geared to the specific needs of the individual.
