Breathe and Splash with Swim Instructor Christine Garrido

On this episode, we’re joined by my long-time friend, Christine Garrido! Christine is a certified swim instructor and has taught swimming for over 10 years. She recently founded @breatheandsplash swim school, which serves swimmers of all levels throughout Miami Dade and Broward County.Christine has been swimming since she was seven years old; she was a competitive swimmer throughout her childhood all the way to college, and even swam for the Peruvian National Team!She’s also provided sports mental performance coaching and consulting services to many high schools and private swim teams. When Christine’s not coaching swimmers, she spends her time with her son, Joaquim, who is 16 months old and already loving the water. Christine also continues to swim herself and regularly competes in open water swims and triathlons. I’ve raced with her before, and she’s very fast!Christine shares with us her journey of how she got into swimming as a kid and how she fueled her passion for the sport to eventually start her own swim school. She explains why kids should learn how to swim, gives tips on how we can train our mind to get out of a “rut”, and even gets into how she kept health and fitness as a top priority throughout her pregnancy.I had a great time chatting and catching up with Christine - you can feel how passionate she is about swimming and helping others be the best they can be, both mentally and physically.This episode was originally recorded on June 9, 2020. The 3 three month delay is totally my fault - it’s been a pretty busy past few months! Since this recording, Christine’s swim school has grown so much that they now have a team of instructors. Way to go, Breathe and Splash Swim School!I hope you all enjoy this episode!|| Show Notes ||- Follow Christine and her swim school on Instagram: @breatheandsplash- Check out the Breathe and Splash Swim School website- Subscribe to The Triathlete Beat podcast and leave a review if you enjoyed this episode!- Follow me on Instagram to keep up with my swim/bike/run adventures: @thetriathletebeat|| Thanks for listening!
