About this pro

Track and Field, as well as other sports, require speed and explosion.  Based on your event or position, I make the training fit the demands of that event or position.  

Athletic performance is something I really enjoy studying and perfecting.  Sports are fun and the more you suceed in your sport the more I enjoy being part of the training.

    Greg has worked with both my girls on hurdles and they love coming to every practice. His attention to detail and technique is very impressive! I would recommend him to anyone looking for help!

    Working with Track and Field Skills made me a better runner as well as an overall better person. They don’t like hearing “I can’t do ______” because they know you are capable in doing anything. They pushed me to be the best runner I could be for myself. Every day practice was always something different and they would make sure stretching was key before getting on the track or heading to the pits. I rate them a 5 for excellent because they truly care about their athletes and want what’s best for them. Most coaches choose favorites and only work with them, but this program doesn’t at all. They make sure everyone gets an equal amount of practice and focus from them.

    I came into Crosscountry and Track my Freshman year of high school just to stay in shape for basketball.. however Coach Swearingen was the one who made me enjoy and love running. His coaching and encouragement during workouts and meets is truly incredible. All his workouts day in and day out made me into the runner I am today. I’m currently running Crosscountry and Track at Midwestern State University and I owe it all to him for getting me to where I am now.

    Coach Swearingen always brought an incredible energy to our track practices. He means business but can make it all fun in the process. He has numerous years of experience in Track & Field. He engages all levels of expertise and brings out the best in his athletes. He coached me from middle school through high school and helped me become headstrong to take on college sports. I am now competing in professional triathlon and I believe Coach Swearingen gave me the love of sport, especially running!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

After discussing the athlete's goals and evaluating the current ability level, we can start to improve on the necessary skills.  It can be small adjustments and refinements or starting over from square one.  

I make sure I am working for their goals and not mine. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been a coach for 20 years and attend clinics for training yearly.  I became a USA Level 1 coach in 2009 and a Level 2 coach in 2010.  However, experience and time with other coaches has done the most to make me better.  


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

An one hour individual session is $50.  


How did you get started teaching?

I was a track and field athlete in high school and my freshman year in college.  I have always enjoyed the sport and enjoy being around the athletes.  


What types of students have you worked with?

I have coached athletes from elementary beginners to serious senior athletes in high school bound for college athletics.  I work with athletes in team and individual sports. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I have been to the state meet for cross country and track and field with different athletes and enjoyed watching them compete on the highest level, but recently we held costume races for our high school team and it was really fun to see the kids relax and enjoy the sport.  


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a coach that is going to be efficient with your time and not just "run you into the ground."  There is more to track and field than hard workouts.  Make sure they can justify the training and aren't just duplicating something they saw.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1) What are my realistic goals?  Do I have them written down?

2) Am I willing to be coached to achieve these goals?

3) Am I willing to be honest with all those helping me?
