What people say about us...
“In 30 years of being an Olympic and international triathlon coach I have found only a handful of special swim coaches like Miguel. His understanding of the principles of swimming, his patience and his passion for seeing an athlete succeed are unparalleled. The unique thing about Miguel is I see him help as many novices improve their swimming as he does with my elite athletes. Regardless of the level your starting to swim, if you want to be better and enjoy the water, then Miguel Vadillo and Embrace Swimming is the coach and the pool to do your swimming in”.
Hall of Fame and Olympic Triathlon Coach
“Embrace Swimming helps swimmers conquer fear and swim/race effectively. Miguel is a born coach: patient, humorous, knowledgeable and inspiring. He breaks down swim strokes so athletes can feel the water and be effective, instead of exhausted. He finds what drives the individual athlete to empower them to improve and especially enjoy the water. A swimmer can learn and improve with Miguel for a lifetime!”
“Swimming with Embrace Swimming has helped me to improve my technique, power, and speed in the water- all of which have contributed to my success racing as a professional triathlete. The combination of finesse and fitness is what makes swimming with this group unique and extremely beneficial”.
Two times triathlon World Champion
“Embrace program’s strong emphasis on technique balanced with work on speed, fitness and endurance has made me a more efficient and confident swimmer. What makes the Embrace program truly unique though are the fun and innovative workouts. I look forward to each practice and always leave with a smile on my face. I always liked swimming...but now I LOVE it!”
“I came to Embrace swimming three years ago, since joining, I have been able to successfully complete multiple open water events, including my personal biggest goal of competing in the world’s global swim series championships in Cancun. Embrace Swimming has experience, expertise, passion, patience and professionalism in their approach of teaching the necessary skills of swimming confidently in both pools and open water. Swimming on a weekly basis with Embrace has been invaluable”.
“As a parent of three young swimmers, I sat in the stands for months watching, wondering what it might be like to take up the sport of swimming as an adult.
Embrace Swimming, under Miguel’s leadership, provided the patience, skills, expertise and motivation to help me get started. It has been four years and I’ve developed a life saving skill, a level of fitness in the water I never thought possible and had fun every length along the way.
Thank you Embrace Swimming for your guidance, patience and attention to the needs of the students in your various levels of swimming from beginner to Olympian”.
Four years ago I started with Embrace Swimming with encouragement from a friend. I was feeling very intimidated about starting since I was not a swimmer. At my first practice I could barely swim the 25 meters from one end of the pool to the other but I kept going to practices and now four years later I have improved a lot. Miguel has been an amazing coach. He is accepting of all ability levels and he tailors the practices to accommodate everyone from beginners to advanced swimmers. He is patient and always encouraging and his coaching is the reason for my improvement and for the successes of all of his swimmers. I'm thankful for Miguel and Embrace Swimming and I will continue to swim with him. Thanks Miguel!
I have attempted swimming lessons a few times without making much progress. Discouraged and frustrated I had nearly resigned myself to dry land events. That’s when a friend recommended Embrace Swimming and it has been a transformative experience. I’m amazed at how much I enjoy swimming now. Coach Miguel has the expertise, experience and patience needed to help anyone improve their swimming regardless of your ability or your ultimate goals. Perhaps the best endorsement is that most people who swim with Embrace Swimming have been referred by fellow athletes.
It doesn’t matter if you are an experience swimmer or just starting out, Embrace Swimming has the program for you. Swimming is so technical and can be very intimidating especially for someone just starting out. The feedback you get is personal and never intimidating. I went from being scared of swimming long distances to loving it! I would highly recommend the programs and the coaching from Embrace Swimming.
