Listen (and watch on YouTube) as we talk about all things swimming! Technique, training, tips, random thoughts, maybe a food joke here and there, and more! Swim Out of the Box has everything swimming you can imagine, except for the water…
#39 - Who Ever Thought of Using Breathing for PT?
Owner of Volition Performance in Vienna, VA Vik Somal joins us to discuss how he came to start his company and what drives him to get up every day and help others with their physical limitations. His goal? To improve your quality of life in every movement that you make.
#38 - Keep on Swimming
Mario Mejia’s BACK for more! This time around we touch base on how his training with us is going and how it compares to what he thought he was getting into in terms of “swim lessons.” Think it’s weird to have swim lessons on land where you only work on breathing for 20 minutes? We don’t.
#37 - Mario Mejia & How He Embodies "Be the Light"
Training for an Ironman is a big commitment. Now take that commitment and add in getting sober and getting your life on track to the table, sound a bit more difficult? Not if you’re Mario Mejia it’s not. Listen while we continue our discussion with Will from Hearts of Empowerment and turn the focus to Mario’s story and his training for his upcoming race in November.
#36 - Hearts of Empowerment & Their Mission (w/a Side of Banana Bread)
Co-Founder Will Reyes joins us to discuss his local charity Hearts of Empowerment, an nonprofit organization that supports other nonprofits with their missions, bringing funding and awareness to their causes. We also have Mario Mejia with us, Hearts of Empowerment’s current Ironman athlete whom we’re also working with on his swimming. Ohh, did we mention banana bread? It’s not important, we just talk about it a lot for no apparent reason…
#35 - Decompression Techniques, Foam Rolling, and Sandwiches?
Kim Fischer Key is back to settle the sandwich debate! We also go more deeply into decompression techniques, foam rolling, most commonly seen injuries and how to work through them, and the occasional soon to be beaten into the ground food joke.
#34 - The Extended Pre-Season
Justine Trolle’s back to talk with us about the current state of Triathlon Pre-Season and how it’s affecting his athlete’s training approaches. Justin is a USAT Level 3 Certified Triathlon Coach and Mentor to beginning triathlon coaches. Dominic and Justin discuss the current state of training, how athletes are currently working out/training, and how it’s affecting their and their upcoming races.
