Eric Hudson

SwimStrong Owner/Founder

Eric has developed a system over the last 12+ years that has created some of the top swim athletes in the country. He has been in the fitness industry for over 16 years, and his professional journey in fitness started in college where he majored in Exercise Science at Purdue University. Upon graduation, he worked as the head strength and conditioning coach of a club swim team near St. Louis. After spending three years on the pool deck as the dryland coach, he continued to work with high school swim athletes, while at the same time taking on new experiences that ranged from being the personal training manager in a multi-billion dollar fitness company, to working as the general manager and lead coach of a boutique group training gym. Through all of these experiences, his passion for working with and impacting competitive swimmers became more and more obvious to him. After three more years rounding out his knowledge of biomechanics and swim-specific performance training, he knew it was time to follow his heart and start focusing solely on dryland training. He felt the need for professionally designed swim-specific dryland training in the club swimming world, and wanted to create something that no other program could rival.

This is his passion and expertise, and with the sole focus being on SwimStrong Dryland, he continues to fine tune his skills and hunger to deliver the best world-class dryland program on the market. His 12 years of swim-specific experience uniquely positions him to help athletes reach goals they once thought impossible. Each dream achieved has made him dream bigger, reach higher, and desire to perfect his craft for the sake of the athletes and their families. He believes that dryland training should focus on more than just the body to get consistent results—the mind and heart must be strengthened as well. This belief led him to further his education and he received his Master’s Degree in Sports Psychology from Capella University. Inspiring young athletes to be not only phenomenal in the water, but phenomenal in their homes, schools, and communities is his passion. He wants to see the next generation positively impact the world and redefine the word “impossible”.
