Kia Ora tātou! My name is Monica, swim coach here at Synergy Fitness. I’ve been taught since I was a kid by my family the importance of learning how to swim for survival. Fortunately, that lesson turned me towards competitive swimming, in which I had amazing opportunities to join national development squads and compete internationally at a young age, specialising in breaststroke, butterfly, and within my later years of competing, both long distance and sprint freestyle. I bring the knowledge, drive and meticulousness from my swimming experiences to my beloved role as a swim coach for all ages, and am passionate about aiding people in their progress towards their swimming goals, however big or small they may be, and beyond.
