Swimming Training in NYC


Hi everyone, I am registered for a summer sprint-tri in LI.  I am not a good swimmer so I am looking for a pool and classes.  However, I can not afford anything to expensive (College loans and all).  So if anyone knows an inexpensive coach, group class, or any alternative please let me know.  thank you.

    Consider the YMCA.  Also, try the SBR Shop (212) 399-3999 or They are on 58'th street. They have trainers, classes and if they are to expensive, they will direct you to another source.  The people are very friendly and helpful.  I tried to buy some running shoes from them and they talked me into cheaper ones.

    Best program in NYC is at Asphalt Green with Neil Cook.  He is a VERY experienced triathlon coach and is especially good at swimming.  He coaches group (less expensive although very good with lots of individual attention) and private lessions.  He also does a lot of video (above- and below-water videos) which is exceptionally helpful.  His number is 212-369-8890.  I know Neil from taking a triathlon coaches ceertification program with him and then visiting his program at Asphalt Green.
