Description

Some of the interesting things that I’ve done around swimming has been consulting the Chinese Olympic Committee with some Talent ID with their age group swimmers, or traveling around the Oceans Seven for several years now… also some of the things I have done includes being part of the Board of Directors of the International Swim Coaches Association (ISCA) representing Mexico, having my regular day to day job as the Head Coach of Become Water Swim Academy located in Mexico City, Founding a system called FORCE IMMERSION regarding biomechanics inside the water with their respective technique training and strength and conditioning program out of the water, coordinate 42 swimming pools for a fitness chain of clubs, and being a former national team swimmer with a US Open relay medal (2004).

Outside of the pool environment I was graduated as Business Administration bachelor and also in Sports Science, both careers @ La Salle University. Currently doing the Sports Science Masters @ ENED (Sports Coaches National School), I also have been a University professor in Sports Science bachelor.

Regarding Strength and conditioning I am a Muscle Activation Techniques Specialist (MAT) and have a Resistance Training Specialist Master (RTSM), and have been aiding strength coaches as an Associate Trainer in Latin-America for Cybex Institute Research (Now Life Fitness Academy).

Overall I consider myself as a passionate of health sciences and high performance improvement.
