Lainie Cassel has over 15 years of competitive swimming experience, including 4 years at the NCAA level and 4 years at one of the top high school swim teams in the country. She has been lucky to have had some of the best teammates and coaches the sport has to offer.
She also has over 10+ years of experience teaching children (from beginning toddlers to elite competitive age group swimmers) and adults looking to improve technique and endurance. In New York City, she worked at JackRabbit Sports as an instructor for adult triathletes and for multiple middle and high school swim teams.
She currently resides in Portland, Oregon where she trains powerlifting at Kabuki Strength Lab and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/Mixed Martial Arts at Gracie Barra Portland. Her diverse background as a multi-sport athlete has given her unique knowledge of movement, posture and balance that she incorporates into her lessons. This is a key aspect of her instruction because it allows for the skills she teaches to apply both in and out of the water.
Lainie offers both local and remote coaching. For more information, please email: CoachLainie@gmail.com.
