Taylor Holmes, Global Marketing Manager
Taylor gave a shoutout to Brandon Horn, one of the most active swimmers in our Global Community Facebook group!

But, with the help of MySwimPro’s dryland workouts, he has been able to ease back into tough training sessions and is feeling as strong as he was in high school!
Carol Caldas, Video Editor
During the COVID-19 lockdown, our live dryland workouts were a huge help to our community. Carol gave props to wordybirdy from YouTube, who is using our guided workouts to stay fit and start her day on a high note! Check out our live workouts on YouTube and IGTV.
