Creator of Force in the Water, Coach Kevin has been involved in the sport of swimming all of his life. He first started as a swimmer and later transitioned to coaching both on the pool deck and in the weight room. He is passionate about the art and science of becoming faster.
Swimming has been a part of Kevin's life since the age of 8 years old and he has seen every level of the sport. He started swimming with his local summer swim league team and progressed to win the 50-meter Breaststroke at USA National Championships in US Open Record breaking time, earning him a berth at the 2013 World Championships swimming for Team USA. A life-long University of Arizona Wildcat, Kevin remains the 2nd fastest breaststroker in U of Arizona history and has competed in two Olympic Trials (2012 & 2016).
After deciding to retire from competitive swimming following the 2016 Olympic Trials, Kevin entered a new stage of self reflection, "What is my new why?", "What do I do now?". In the end, Kevin found that sharing his passion for the sport and coaching others in their athletic journeys was more rewarding than his own swimming accolades. Ever since, he has dedicated his life to learning about the how's and why's of performance and sharing it with others.
Kevin has experience coaching swimmers of all ages and levels of development; age group swimmers as young as 9 all the way up through D1 college swimmers both in the pool and as part of their resistance training (dryland and weight room). He holds a CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association and interned in the University of Arizona Olympic Sports Weight Room.
