Coaches Corner: Write Your Own Story, Abbie Fish’s Unique Journey

By Fitter and Faster Staff

A Unique Journey

Abbie Fish has extensive experience in the sport. Abbie started Swim Like A Fish in 2019 after 25 years of success in competitive swimming and 10+ years and counting of elite swim coaching. During her swimming career, Abbie tried out for the Olympics, was a 6x Olympic Trial Qualifier, SEC Finalist, NCAA Qualifier, and 2x USA Junior National Champion. On top of that, Abbie started coaching as they were in graduate school and still training. It was a natural transition for them from being the one in the water to the one on the pool deck.

In this episode, Abbie talks about the moments that shaped her philosophical approach to coaching, why the coach/athlete dynamic is so critical for success, and what she learned from her mentors.

Abbie is a University of Georgia “Double Dawg” – where they swam and graduated with their M.S. and B.S. degrees in Exercise Science. Abbie is a big swimming nerd at heart, and loves everything when it comes to stroke mechanics, underwater video, and swimming technique.
