Jacob was a lifeguard in the Singapore Navy for 3 years before starting his swimming coaching career.
Coaching gives him a great sense of achievement, especially when his students master the correct swimming techniques. His goal is to educate about water safety in an engaging manner. In the pool you'll notice that he's never without a smile on his face!
Out of the water, Jacob is a fitness fanatic, having also worked previously as a personal trainer.
"As a child I was actually fearful of water and cried at the sight of it but eventually, with the help of my swimming coach, I overcame my fear. That's been my inspiration for choosing this career. It's really exciting being part of the SWISH! family."
