Level 2 coach US Masters
Coach Lora Erickson is now a U.S. Masters Level 2 Certified Swim Coach. Coach Lora aka Blonde Runner offers adult swim instruction (day-time and evening classes available) as well as Underwater Swim Video Analysis. If you are looking for specific feedback to help you improve your crawl/freestyle stroke for triathlons then you will want to have an analysis done. This is a two-part assessment starting at the pool with filming and immediate feedback. An additional individual session (included) will be set up to review the results and review proper technique etc. Swim analysis is offered once a month in the Davis County, Utah area. There are limited spots. Group Swim Technique Classes are also offered. Limited spots.  Please note: Individual footage will not be released due to patron privacy.

Coach Lora’s next Swim Session will be offered

Wed. Nov. 26 from 9-10 p.m. in Bountiful. 

Contact her at theblonderunner@Gmail.com to reserve your spot.

Here’s what people are saying about the Swim Instruction & Underwater Swim Video Analysis:
“Thank you so much! You are a fantastic coach. I know I have a ton to work on but to be completely honest, I’m so excited right now. My perspective has completely changed from I just have to get through the swim to I think I can do it well. I’m looking forward to this new sport and excited to train. Thanks for making it fun! And understandable! You are great!” ~ J. H.

“Swimming has always been the weakest part of my triathlons, so I jumped at the chance to join Coach Lora’s swim clinic. She gave me some specific pointers right away, and I immediately felt a difference. She took video footage of me from multiple angles, and when we got together the next week to review, I was able to really understand what she was talking about. There are so many technical aspects involved in swimming, but Coach has been incredibly patient with me (helping me be patient with myself!), and helped me to focus on one at a time until I can start combining them. I especially appreciate how well she explains ideas and techniques–trying many different directions until I finally figured out which one clicked for me. That “Aha!” moment was worth every penny spent and every minute in the water.” ~ M.M.
