Testimonials:

“Thanks to your coaching, I had probably the best swim I have ever had in a race. I was calm and relaxed- the only hiccup was in the last 50 yards or so going into the swim out, I got sandwiched between 2 people and got kicked a few times. I kept my cool, pulled up, and found a new lane. But during the swim I was calm and relaxed. I even passed a few people and used power and not a fast cadence to do it! I am usually getting passed by people so that was a big thing for me! I never felt tired, out of breath, or panicky. So imagine my surprise when I found out I shaved more than 1 minute off my previous best time there! I definitely could have pushed harder but was really focused on a calm and even swim.”  Meghan B.

“I completed my Olympic Triathlon taking 10 minutes off my previous 1500m swim time! Thank you for your assistance and coaching.” Kelley S.

“Our daughter worked with Coach Caron for six months leading up to the beginning of her high school season. During this time, Coach Caron helped our daughter to improve her technique in all strokes and build her confidence. Coach Caron also provided tips for racing strategies. Our daughter’s high school coaches noticed her improvement right away. In her high school season opener, our daughter qualified for sectionals in the 500 free and showed improved times in other events. We recommend Coach Caron for any high school swimmer who is looking for dedicated training along with their regular regime.” W. Family

“I am new to triathlon racing. I started working with Carolanne in January of 2013. We started with a comprehensive video analysis of my swim stroke and she immediately identified key issues which needed attention. We spent the next few months working on those issues and we then did another video analysis. The improvement was dramatic, both in my form and in the average pace of swimming I could sustain in the pool. Carolanne is very patient and flexible. The one-on-one coaching in a private environment with multi-camera feedback is extremely helpful.I highly recommend Winning Swimming to anyone who wants to improve their swim technique and pace. Both experienced and novice swimmers will see significant improvements from the coaching they get.” Eli S.

“I went to Coach Caron to improve on the swim part of triathlons. I had heard great things about Winning Swimming and thought I should give it a try. Just in my first session, Coach Caron was able to give me a few tips and tweaks that made me feel more comfortable in the water. I recommend anyone that wants to improve their swim technique should check them out. ” Joshua H.

“Our daughter recently had a test swim session with Coach Caron. She enjoyed swimming in the pool and thought that Coach Caron was “chill” and positive. She also appreciated Coach Caron’s insightful feedback on her strokes. She is excited about working with Coach Caron 1:1 over the next few months in preparation for her high school and club seasons. ”  J&W

“We had a test session scheduled with Coach Caron for 2 of our kids who are in the swim team. She performed a thorough analysis of their strokes and gave some very good pointers. Initially we weren’t sure how she would be able to assess in a stationary pool, but we were really amazed at the coaches knowledge and patience. Abby has used those pointers and has shown significant improvement in her practice and also made it to the districts. We plan on scheduling a few more sessions with Coach Caron.” Abby and Alex’s Mom

“I started taking private lessons with Carolanne back in December not being able to swim more than 100 yards of freestyle continuously. I walked into my first session knowing that I wanted to correct my relaxation level in the water and my struggles with breathing. Carolanne immediately made a few minor corrections to my form that greatly improved my comfort level. Over the next seven sessions I was amazed at the progress that I was able to make.

With Carolanne’s guidance in a little over three months I’ve been able to reduce my 100 yard split time by 30% while doubling the distance covered in training sessions. I fully plan on going back in the near future to further fine tune my technique and learn some open water skills. ” Scott G.

“Coach Caron helped me last summer improve my techniques.  My times improved and I made sectionals for my breaststroke.  Now I have new goals and we went over what I need to focus on to reach my goals.  She is an excellent coach.  She is very patient.  I appreciate working with her.” Nicholas M.

“Awesome.  I went in thinking she wouldn’t be able to help me reach my goals in 30 short minutes, but let me just tell you, she really knows her stuff.  I mean she knew right away why I was having trouble.  I wasn’t sure about it at first but she really did help me become a better swimmer and that makes me very happy!”  Bianca G.

 “Massive help and knowledgeable.  Coach is well versed in what works and how to bring your skills along while motivating you to succeed.  Using the endless pool allows you to swim at specific speeds that she can control while she watches from less than 5 feet away.  The mirrors along front and back of the pool let you see for yourself what you’re doing.  With the pool being endless, you can learn to swim a long way without need for flip turns which helps with triathlon training.  Overall, an excellent experience and well worth it!”  Andy T.

“Amazing Coach.  I started training for the swim portion of a triathlon really late and could only swim 1 lap.  After working with Coach Caron for just 30 days, I was able to swim over 15 laps in a pool and .3 miles open water at the race.  She was able to identify my areas in need of improvement and teach me how to improve all aspects of my swimming.  I strongly recommend Coach Caron for anyone in need of improving their swimming.”  Sarah O.
