Comfort in the water is often all that beginners aim to achieve.  And finding your comfort zone while navigating open water as other triathletes are swimming all around you begins with good advice.  Good news, this video is loaded with it.

We are proud to introduce you to  Coach Dave Sheanin who is both a USAT and a USA Swimming Certified Coach.  Dave has helped hundreds of athletes evolve from being timid guppies to confident sailfish. His swim advice improves the experience beginners have in the pool during training, and that translates to a better race day experience.

Coach Dave Sheanin is an advocate for aligning triathletes with their race goals. He believes that becoming “triathlon literate” is key to meeting your goals. Triathlon is indeed a lifestyle and like the other important areas of your life, knowledge is power. He encourages you to explore the nuances of the sport, be open to new ideas and ask questions – of yourself, of fellow swimmers, cyclists and runners, and of your coach.  

Coach Dave is a USA Triathlon and Training Peaks Certified Coach.  Coach Dave was honored by USA Triathlon with the Community Impact Award.
