I swim, therefore I am

Frank D Totten

Swimming is an activity I just like to do. Participation and competition in organized events are good and so is the exercise. But most of all, moving through the water is what I like the most. After many years of steady stroke skills development I enjoy swimming more than ever.

I swim at Fort Myers Aquatic Center, FMAC, Florida Gulf Coast University, (FGCU) Aquatic Center mostly on my own with guidance from Coach Chuck Slaght. When circumstances require being close to home, I swim weekends and early AM sessions at the Catalina lsle Community HOA Pool.
