Even though Bradley doesn’t consider himself an athlete he most assuredly is!  His commitment and desire to adopt a healthy lifestyle with nutrient dense foods, swimming and running has had some great results that I hope he will take with him for a lifetime.  I am so happy I could help you do your job with more swim skill and confidence and help you in your journey.  I wish you all the best and hope to see you out there swimming soon! – Coach Erinne Guthrie

Why you chose FCC to help you on your triathlon/health and wellness journey?

My research requires me to swim and dive for equipment that we keep at the bottom of rivers, streams, and bays in the Everglades to track the movements of sharks, alligators, snook, and several other large predators.  Full Circle Coaching was recommended as a coaching group that could help me learn to be more comfortable in the water and become a more efficient swimmer and free diver.

Tell me about your successes so far:

I am happy to report that the last round of fieldwork went incredibly well.  I could tell a huge difference in my ability to dive and swim after spending the last four months with Full Circle.

Please share your BIG goals:

As a beginner, I wanted to be able to swim a mile.  With Erinne’s help, I’ve shattered that goal.  Now I would like to be able to go for a 2 mile swim!

What were some of your biggest improvements in performance for the each of the following?

Swim: Before FCC, I could swim a couple of laps and just be exhausted.  Now I routinely swim 2000m in a practice and am much faster and more efficient. 
Run: Before Full Circle, I was intensely over-striding and heel-striking. Now my technique is safer and I am much faster.  I’ve moved from roughly an 8 minute mile to a best 7 minute mile. 
Nutrition/Health: I eat cleaner and do my best to plan my meals around proteins.  I’ve learned that a snack doesn’t have to be junk food. 

Name 2 or 3 things that have made the biggest difference in your journey:

  1. Even though I was focused on my swim, Erinne spent weeks improving my flexibility and giving me strength training exercises focused on body resistance.  This emphasis on whole body training has helped me even beyond swimming.
  1. We moved my nutrition away from a carb heavy diet to one balanced with protein and fat.  This really increased my stamina and energy level throughout the day and in workouts.

What would you say to another person who was on the fence about joining our training program?

With the program, you learn how to train correctly to minimize the risk of injury and how to “train smarter, not harder.”  These are things that you will keep with you for as long as you are able to keep training.
