MEET OUR AWESOME SWIM COACHES...

 
 

Brianna Chu - Swim Coach

Hometown:  Racine,  WI

Some of my favorites:  Jumping in a lake or fountain after a hot run, curling up in bed when your body is hurting after a hard workout, beating up on training partners during practice, dogs.

Fitness Background:  My primary sport was swimming for 12 years, culminating in swimming backstroke and sprint freestyle at the University of Minnesota.  I have always struggled with asthma, and now I am healthier doing sports that keep me in the fresh air.

I love to cross-country ski in the winter and the variety in triathlon training keeps things fun.  Some notable race experiences I've had include competing in the draft-legal sprint at the USAT Collegiate Nationals and the American Birkebeiner ski race.  I have had some awesome coaches and teammates throughout the years who have influenced my approach to training and competition.  I think race-day confidence comes from being familiar with the pain from training and working on "the little things" on a day-to-day basis.

 

Tracy Angelo - Swim Coach

Some of my favorites: My family! My puppies! Don Julios! LSD (long slow distance) runs with friends! People! Hackie Sac! Diet Coke with lime and a good cup of coffee!

Fitness Background: I have been an Aquatics Supervisor for 13 years and an Authorized Provider of The American Red Cross. I am a Lifeguard Instructor, a Water Safety Instructor, and a FA/CPR/AED Instructor for the professional and workplace. I have run 8 marathons with a 3:53 PR.

Amy Croonquist - Swim Coach

Hometown: White Bear Lake, MN

Some of my favorites: Family, walking my 4 legged friends “Rosey” and “Scarlet” around the lake, friend time, golf, simple pleasures, and open water swims with friends.

Fitness Background: It’s all about the water!  It took only 10 years of competitive swimming and one amazing coach to know that I wanted to be just like him!  Today I teach/ coach all ages and levels of swimmers.  I am a Water Safety Instructor, Lifeguard, FA/CPR/AED Instructor and High School Coach of 18 years. I have also coached Junior and Masters Swim Teams and I have a background coaching Total Immersion Swimming.  I work with the first time triathlete who wants to know how to “just get through” their swim race, to the seasoned triathlete who wants to “get faster” and save energy at the same time!   I am an avid triathlete so I can relate to that swimming leg!  I love to swim open water races especially Bayfield to Madeline Island every August!  I know that everyone can improve their swimming with patience and mindfulness.  I can teach you how to think in the water. It’s just too much fun!
