I started training with Howard in January 2015. I was registered for two Half Ironman events over the summer. It was a pleasure working with Howard. He challenged me to improve without risking injury. Training for a Half Ironman is not just swim, bike, run. It’s core work, strengthening, and mental preparation. He covered all the bases. My new confidence in swimming is my biggest accomplishment. After several lessons with Howard, which included form adjustments and learning new swim strokes, I swim relaxed in rough, open water. I highly recommend him as a trainer, especially if you have any interest in swimming, cycling, or running. Thank you again, Howard!
