"David Wendkos was our Master's swim coach last summer, providing detailed instruction and triathlon specific training for a small group of triathletes in Annapolis. His relaxed, fun style and targeted drills and workout regimen helped all of us to increase our speed and efficiency in the water... He has a keen sense for teaching technique, specific to each athlete's ability and goals. I highly recommend David for any swimmer that is looking to quickly improve and have fun while doing it!"

"I came to David and Aquatic Rhino averaging 1:13 at [Lake] Placid and Kona, loved the set up! David helps me correct my stroke and gives me drills to work on. My time has gone down to 1:04 and my confidence has only been building...."

"Just wanted to pass along our thanks to David for coaching our son. [He] is just really enjoying his swimming this year and comes home from his meets really pumped about his progress. A year ago I was doubtful he'd continue swimming... and now he is so enthusiastic. A great coach makes all the difference!"
Amanda, parent of a USA Swimming club swimmer
