Default Total Immersion Coach in the Philippines

I would just like to thank Total Immersion for finally having an authorized coach to teach total Immersion in Manila. I have been an avid fan of Total Immersion program from watching the most graceful freestyle in youtube, hoping to attend a TI class someday as I recently got into Aquathlons, and by end of this year, Triathlon.

I was almost scammed by TriSwim Coach in the Philippines as he is claiming to teach total immersion and would have a Total Immersion Certificate on his Facebook, however when I checked on the Find-A-Coach tab on the TI website, only MediSwim is there. I even checked the Verified Coaches list and there are only 2 coaches -- Ria and Jaycee, and the JOSE is not even listed.

Putting this out there just in case there are filipino TI followers here-- Beware of TriSwimJose.com.

I don't this he's by any chance affliated to TI (hope TI can confirm if he is or not)

Thank you and have a blessed week to us all!

Thank you for this. Good thing I found this thread, I was scouting for Total Immersion Swimming Coaches in Manila and encountered a few coaches who are claiming to teach TI, the one is triswimjose, the other one is Swim Academy. Swim academy is famous among Triathletes in the PH, and Coach Moi claims to be Total Immersion certified but when I checked on the Total Immersion find-a-coach, he's not there so I suppose he's not Total Immersion Certified.

I've checked out Aqualogic and had some friends who enrolled but according to them, Ria Mackay is not hands on and lets her non TI coaches teach TI. I'm hearing good things about MediSwim, I follow them on Instagram and they post great case studies. my current sched is just conflicting with their current Triathlon Swim program sched but will def enroll at MediSwim.

I would suggest emailing the TI office here in the U.S. They can reliably tell you if someone is a TI certified coach. And they may also want to take action if a non-TI coach is claiming to be TI certified.
