Jorge Vilches

Senior Swim Instructor | Stroke Development Coach

Hola !!

I am Jorge. I used to be a professional swimmer in my country (Mexico). I started in school competitions and quickly transitioned to international ones. My main focus and goal was increasing speed along side technique. So I take training very seriously and I have a lot of fun in the pool.

When teaching lessons, I observe the swimmer and I make a quick test in my mind depending what the swimmer needs. If I see that a swimmer needs to go back an fix kick, floating or stroke we continue to repeat those exercises to build strong skills in the water. We repeat those exercises until they develop solid technique. In another scenario it could be that a swimmer demonstrates many skills and so, I would introduce exercises for the next level.

I love Spanish food, my favorite plate its "fidegua"....And what its fidegua?....OMG, its like a paella but fidegua is done with noodles (pasta) and you eat it with Alioli. It's the best of the best! I like to jump and dive into the water, but floating is my favorite because its like flying but in the water!!!!

I have a memory when I would be at home spending time with my grand mom and playing with the dogs in the back yard. She was my favorite friend!! My favorite sea creature is a Turtle. I like to play the flute and saxophone at my home. I also like to dance and go camping.
