Happy New Year! A Letter From Fitter and Faster VP Chloe Sutton

By Fitter and Faster Staff

Dear Fitter and Faster Swimmers and Families,

Today is the last day of 2019. With this year coming to a close, I can’t help but look back with pride at the impact Fitter and Faster has made on so many swimming communities throughout the year.

2019 was a breakout year for us. In 2018 we thought we were doing a lot of swim camps by visiting 151 cities. In 2019, we blew that number out of the water with 225 camps in 47 States plus Canada and the Bahamas over the course of the year. Some of our highlights include:

  • Clinicians: Thanks to Brett Hawke, we nearly doubled the size of our clinician roster working with more elite athletes and coaches.
  • Focused Curriculums: The curriculum for each session became much more specific allowing clinicians and participants to get more out of each experience.
  • Series of Camps: Thousands of swimmers participated in the numerous “Series” of camps we started producing throughout the USA. A Series consists of multiple camps – each focusing on a different topic. Each camp within a Series is held at one location and spaced strategically throughout a season or the year.
  • Smaller Session Sizes: We began limiting the size of sessions even more to improve the experience for participants.

… just to name a few!

As a result, our surveys consistently come back with more and more positive praise. We cherish hearing about the improvements of participants. Participants are also no longer limiting themselves to only attending a few camps each year. Participants have begun to make Fitter and Faster a serious part of their training program attending 5+ events each season. People have already begun signing up for various “Full Series” of camps we are offering throughout the United States during 2020.

As an Olympic athlete, I know that just because you’re swimming fast, doesn’t mean you should get comfortable. The same thing goes for Fitter and Faster. We plan to reach even higher in 2020 by producing even more swim camps and continuously improving the experience for each participant. I truly believe we’re just getting started.

Cheers to a fantastic year in 2019 and to an even better 2020! It’s going to be an amazing year! We wish you and your families happiness and good health.
