Marisa Krauss Fort Washington - Assistant Coach

Risa has been swimming since she was six years old. She grew up in southeastern PA and spent her time swimming for the YMCA. She went to YMCA Nationals and MA Zones with West Chester Area YMCA and Lionville Community YMCA, teams she also volunteers coached for during high school. Risa swam varsity all four years in high school and was a PIAA States qualifier. She is now a sophomore swimming for Arcadia University and won the Middle Atlantic Conference in the 100 and 200 breaststrokes at the 2021 MAC Championships.

Risa’s favorite part of coaching is how excited the kids are to practice and improve each day. Her favorite sets to write, coach, and swim are kick and sprint sets. When it comes to coaching at Life Time, she goes into each day prepared to help every swimmer improve both in the pool and out. As a psychology major at Arcadia, she considers it very important to make sure every swimmer has right mindset to succeed in the sport of swimming every day.
