Reach your goals

Triathlon bike riderI'm Casey Arendt, head coach of Go the Distance Coaching. My passion is helping triathletes remove barriers standing between them and their racing goals. For many, this means improving their swimming. I offer premiere level swim video analysis and private adult swim lessons in Austin, Round Rock, and Waco, TX to help you get more efficient in the water. If you're stuck, and don't know how to get faster in the water, having an experienced coach find the root cause of your technique issues, and give you the tools to fix it can be a game-changer!

Feeling ok about your swimming technique, but not sure what to do when you go to the pool to get ready for your next big race? I offer 18 week programs for Ironman and Ironman 70.3 distance swim legs that will teach you how to pace yourself, and get you out of the water fast.

If you are open to learning new ways to approach your swim in order to reach your performance goals, take some time to learn more about my private adult swim lessons, swim video analysis and retail products, featuring Coeur Sports, Hammer Nutrition and Tri Tats.

Please don't hesitate to contact me to find out how I can help you reach your triathlon goals!

GTDC Swimming Services at a Glance:

  • Training Peaks swim plans: Racing Ironman in 2020 or 2021, but not sure how to get really ready for the 2.4 mile swim? If you plan to self-coach for your next (or first!) Ironman, you want to go to the pool every time with a plan you know will work to get you ready for race day. I offer a Training Peaks based plan of three swims per week that has done just that for many swimmers who are in the 2:15-1:30/100y pace range. Please contact me at casey @ gothedistancecoaching dot com to get more information about my Ironman or IM70.3 swim plans, and to get started!
  • Video and private lessons: Find improved confidence, efficiency and power in the water! Coach Casey offers intensive one-on-one swim coaching with video analysis by appointment. See how triathletes from Austin, Waco, Houston, San Antonio and beyond have learned to swim better in one 1.25 hr session by visiting our YouTube channel. Thirty and 45 minute private swim lessons are also available if you prefer.
  • Free swim workouts: On the look-out for swimming advice that is consistent and works? Learning to swim better using YouTube and the advice of random people at your gym can be frustrating. If we can't get together for a swim lesson in the near future, please request your free copy of my off-season swim workout guide here, and get a sneak peek at how I train my athletes to swim better using targeted drills and intervals.
