Welcome To SwimFast

Chances are, you’re on this page for one reason. Your swimming is not improving. And lowering your times is currently the most frustrating (and confusing) part of your triathlon training.

Trust me, I get it.

Hey, my name is Rory. I am a swim coach that gave up working with kids in 2012 to focus exclusively on helping Age Group Triathletes improve their swimming.

If you don’t have the technique foundation of balance, propulsion and breathing in the water like a swimmer that started young. Or you don’t have the time or flexibility to swim 30km per week like the pro triathletes do. Then you’re in the same boat as 99% of the Age Group Triathletes I coach on a daily basis.

The good news is I can help.

I’m not telling you it will be easy (it won’t be), but I can promise you that you can swim faster and more efficiently.

Everything I’ve written and recorded on ICanSwimFast.com is there to help you learn, understand and improve. Take a look around, figure out what’s holding your swim back and then get in the water and start working at it.

If you need help, just ask.

“Rory is NOT a swim coach, he is a swim guru. He will not only be able to de-construct your stroke in step by step format, that will be easy for you to understand and improve on, but he has the uncanny ability to understand what the order of importance is to improve your swimming stroke in the shortest amount of time, with the fastest possible gains.”
