From a number of swimmers who have trained with Coach Bryan:

“I am a Breast Cancer survivor.  While the treatments that I received saved my life, they caused me to have serious deconditioning and significant side effects.  I can  honestly say that since I started swimming with you, I feel better now than I have in years.  I have the energy to LIVE life, rather than just getting through each day.  Swimming has made me feel stronger than I ever thought was possible.  Thank you, Bryan;  you have truly changed my life!”

“I just wanted to thank you for last night’s swim. I still can’t believe that I got in that freezing water and attempted to swim with my face in the water! Thank you for believing in me. Most of all thank you for your continued encouragement and not letting me give up! You are the best!”

– Julie

“I have been training with Coach Bryan since I was 5 years old. I have achieved national rank status and am now swimming at Stony Brook and am a US swim coach. In 2009, Coach Bryan trained me for the Cross Bay Swim with the goal of coming in 1st place and following in his footsteps. I did!”

– Sean Conway

“Coach Bryan literally taught me how to swim. I could not swim a lap without difficulty. I am now a successful triathlete and have started a charitable organization called “Tri-ing for Kids” where triathletes raise funds for sick children. Coach Bryan was a true inspiration and to be honest, I don’t think I would be where I am at now without him.”
