Trains with every piece of equipment available at all times.
Trains with nothing. Only uses a loin cloth and goggles in workout.
Leaves right on your feet. Couldn't count to five or ten if his life depnded on it.
Not an actual coach, but someone who is consumed with technique. Swimming is a precise set of moves that can be broken down, categorized, and scientifically analyzed.
Could care less about technique. Just wants to swim and leave the analysis to the eggheads.
Trains at least 10 swimming workouts a week. Anything less is viewed as not trying.
Fast Guy who Never Trains
Shows up once a month and breaks national records in practice.
Hardest Working Man in the Swim Business
Trains like a ferocious animal in workout, but has no speed when it comes to racing.
Works out in a lane that is far too fast or slow for him.
The Crack Guy
Dude, pull your swimsuit up or get a bigger size.
Shows up to practice in board shorts and a scuba mask.
As for myself, I would fall into the categories of Luddite and Jaded. Also, I wrote this from a male perspective, but the women are included as well. Any other stereotypes?
