JAMES CHRISTIE
 

James has been a member of the Excel coaching staff for eight years now.

James swam throughout high school and college, and also lifeguarded at
Glen Island Park Beach in Westchester. Shortly after college he also started
teaching snowboarding at Killington and, thereafter, at Hunter Mountain.
James returned to swimming in 2007 when he became a member of Excel.
This fueled his growing interest in endurance events with an affinity for the
half iron-distance triathlon - in particular, the very challenging REV3 course
in Quassy, Connecticut, which he's conquered several times. James has
successfully completed numerous half and full marathons, long distance
open water swim races, and several half and full iron-distance triathlons.

James has completed the Total Immersion freestyle workshop, is an
ASCA Level 2 certified swim coach and a USA-Triathlon Level 1 certified
coach along with holding CPR, AED, First Aid & Safety certifications. He has
a BA in Computer Graphics, and is an IT professional working as a Macintosh
Integration and Systems Engineer. James has a family and loves being a Dad.
