My name is Brittany Williams. I grew up in Erie, Pennsylvania and attended college at Lock Haven University where in May 2011 I received my Bachelor's degree in Sport Administration with minors in Coaching and Aquatics . I have been a swimmer since the age of 5, and upon graduating from college, officially hung up my suit after 4 awesome years with the Lady Eagles.

 

Swimming has been my passion for almost my entire life. My biggest joy is being able to teach other kids/athletes my passion and watch it become theirs. From being a lifeguard, pool supervisor, coach and high performance consultant, I have seen all aspects of the aquatics world and my love for it has only grown stronger. I recently moved out to Colorado in January to complete an internship with USA Swimming in their Performance Division and working with the National Team and it has been a life changing experience.

 

I am a very down to earth/laid back person and am always willing to lend a hand. I am a very organized person and dependable anytime someone needs me. I was always a fan of the beach and sand, but after moving out west, have found a new love for the mountains.

I am really looking forward to starting this new chapter with Life Time Fitness :)

I am originally from Alaska, where I grew up as a competitive swimmer. I began swimming at age 7 and continued on through college. Some of my personal swimming highlights include being a state record holder, participating as a member of the All Star Team and qualifying for Junior Nationals in the 100/200 back and the 100 fly. I still enjoy swimming in the pool and open water. Off the deck my interests include snowboarding for fun and as a volunteer instructor with Adaptive Sports Association, mountain biking, hiking and photography.

I have been involved with the dry side of swimming for 19 years as an instructor and coach. I am an  American Swim Coaches Association level 3 coach.  I began coaching in 1996 with Alaska Pacific Swim Club as a novice and age group assistant coach after several years teaching swim lessons. In 1998, I became the head coach for Wasilla Waves Swim Club until 2007. While there I also was the Wasilla High School head girls and boys swim coach. I held office as an Alaska Swimming board member and received high school regional coach of the year honors.  Some of my swimmer achievements include national qualifiers, sectional individual/relay qualifiers and finalists, state record holders, All Star Team members, and National top 16 qualifiers. After moving to Colorado, I continued coaching with the Durango Swim Club (2008-2012).

My goal at Life Time Fitness is to help swimmers become the best they can be in the pool and in life by providing a top level training program. I love to see my former swimmers continue on with swimming as a lifelong fitness routine. My coaching philosophy is swimmers should learn to swim with correct technique and compete in all strokes/distances before beginning intense training and specialization. I like to keep practices engaging and fun so my swimmers are constantly being challenged and look forward to coming to the pool.

I am excited to be part of the Life Time Fitness Swim community!
