What swimmers and coaches have to say about the program
"Working with Tim Vagen and Unlimited Athlete over the last 5 years has taken my swimming career to a new level. With Tim's help, we have been able to find and strengthen weaknesses in my muscular system that can be incorporated into my strokes in the pool. By linking my body together using both big and small muscles, it has made me a more efficient swimmer. Tim has a great program put together because I know that what I am doing on land is directly linked to making me a better swimmer."Ariana Kukors

"I started weight lifting during my college
career and immediately began to see the results reflected in my
swimming. Upon switching coaches and moving to Seattle in April of 2008,
I began working with Tim Vagen of Unlimited Athlete. Much of the work I
did with Tim was different than exercises I had previously done.
Swimming involves a series of repetitive motions and the work I did with
Tim helped to work many of the opposing muscles, thus creating balance.
I have never had a major injury, but have had several small bumps along
the way. Tim helped to stabilize the weak areas and thus helped me
achieve a more balanced body in which to work on overall strength."
"As an elite level athlete, I am very picky about who I work with. Tim's ability to understand the demands and challenges of his athletes is extremely important. As an athlete himself, as well as having trained elite athletes in various sports, he clearly understands the emotional and physical demands of his athletes. All in all Tim helped me with my athletic career and I have full confidence that he can help whomever he works with!"
