John Chipponeri

As the first Swim Smooth Certified coach in California, John is excited up to bring the professionalism and passion of Swim Smooth to San Diego.

John discovered Swim Smooth in 2013 during a 4-year corporate assignment in Perth, Australia. Already in the swim coaching business, John quickly identified the unique, passionate, and effective methods of Swim Smooth. His pursuit of stroke efficiency has helped him overcome his Overglider tendencies and to successfully train for and complete the 13-mile Rottnest channel swim in 2016 in just over 6-hours.

John is also a USAT Youth and junior Certified Coach, Triathlon Australia Certified Coach, US Masters Certified Level 2 Swim Coach, and a TriDot triathlon coach.
