June was an exciting month at MySwimPro! We celebrated the company’s 5 year anniversary with 5 days of epic giveaways, and our global community shared thousands of inspiring stories about why they love swimming.
To keep the celebration going, each of our team members shared their favorite memory from their time at MySwimPro. Check it out!
Taylor Holmes, Global Marketing Manager
Taylor’s favorite memory is hosting live dryland workouts with Fares during lockdown. Each Tuesday, Fares and Taylor went live on Instagram to guide swimmers through a swimming-specific workout to help keep them in shape while pools were closed. Check out our IGTV to see all the workouts!
Adam Oxner, CTO & Co-Founder
Adam has been with MySwimPro since the beginning. One of his favorite memories is when the MySwimPro app was featured in one of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s presentations during the Apple Keynote.
Carol Caldas, Video Editor
Carol had a great time at the World Swim Gala in April! This event was the first ever virtual swim gala, featuring keynote speeches from Olympians Rowdy Gaines and Kaitlin Sandeno. Check out a recap of the event here!
Michael Allon, Android Developer & Co-Founder
Mike’s standout moment from the last 5 years is when the team went to Germany to showcase the MySwimPro app on Casio smartwatches. They got to meet up with MySwimPro fans and see an aquatic opera in a historic German pool!
Paige Walters, VP of Marketing
Since joining the MySwimPro team, Paige has gotten back into competitive swimming. She has loved competing with team, and has swam faster than she did in high school!
Cenk Arioz, Backend Developer
Cenk’s favorite memory is the 2019 team retreat in Mallorca, Spain. The team had so much fun bonding and planning exciting new initiatives for the coming years!
Ben Hendricks, iOS Developer
Ben’s highlight was competing in the 2018 U.S. Masters Nationals with the team. It was the first time he had swim competitively in years, and he went faster than he thought!
Lorenza Padilla, Digital Content Producer
Lorenza recalled how proud she felt when her first videos for MySwimPro were released to the world. She also has some great memories from the team retreat to Mallorca!
Dan Plantamura, Business Development
Dan has been working hard to secure partnerships with awesome brands that will benefit the MySwimPro community, and his favorite memory is getting the first “yes” to a sponsored campaign!
Maksym Bilan, Senior iOS Developer
Max had a blast at the team retreat in Mallorca! He looks back fondly on all the open water swimming, team building and valuable experience everyone shared during the trip.
Charlie Brown, Community Champion
Charlie’s favorite memory is competing at the 2019 U.S. Masters Nationals — even though he missed his heat of the 50 free. He got to meet a lot of MySwimPro community members in person!
Fares Ksebati, CEO & Co-Founder
Fares’s memory takes us back to 2015, when he, Mike an Adam traveled to Santa Monica, California to pitch MySwimPro. It was their first team trip — there were only a few hundred downloads of the MySwimPro app! They rented an AirBnB in Venice Beach, took surfing lessons, swam in a swim meet and went on a long walk from Santa Monica Pier to Venice Pier.
From all of us at MySwimPro, thank you for your support over the last 5 years! We’re looking forward to making even more epic memories in the years to come!
