Private or Semi-Private Lessons available at your choice of location.
Spring/Summer/Fall Open Water training two to three times per week, individually or with the training group at the Upper Merion Boathouse.
Underwater swim video analysis – complete technical analysis of your swim stroke, written/verbal feedback, suggested plans for improvement.
Meeting at various locations throughout the area, we invite anyone who wants to join our rides and split up in groups according to ability. We believe training with friends is just more fun, so come out to join us!
The Upper Merion Middle School track is right next to the pool so we often gather for track workouts before our swims. Stay tuned to the Facebook Page for updates!

What People Are Saying
Our work speaks for itself. And our People’s testimonials speak for us.
I highly recommend the triathlon camps that John produces! I have attended two of John’s camps and each time have gotten my season started off in a big way. Taking a week off to concentrate on training is something everyone should invest in. Doing so helps you learn how to log big miles and build your confidence. I was rewarded with improved performance each year I went to camp. I also established new friendships and networking relationships. I almost forgot to mention that the food is over the top, as John does a great job as a chef! www.RacineMultiSports.com
The John Kenny Austin Tri Camp was a great experience and springboard for the triathlon season. Large early spring volume with one on one coaching. I would definitely recommend it for a kick start to your event.
Awesome swim video consult w John Kenny! Unvarnished truth about both strengths and weaknesses — and good practical advice on how to correct the weak areas. John has such a calm, matter of fact way of presenting things that even if you discover you’re not swimming with all the grace of an Olympian (not that I had any such illusion but a person can daydream, ha!), you walk away feeling not discouraged but armed with useful info to help you take the steps needed to be your own best and a sense that it can be done if you work at it. Knowing I did improve in some areas provides hope that I’ll keep improving!
I am grateful to have met John Kenny in June 2012 after the Philly Tri. He has helped me progress in the sport of triathlon to a point I didn’t know was possible in such a short time. Before meeting John, I had just gone to the swimming pool swam a few laps and called it a day, thinking that’s what swim workout was. I was introduced to John after my 2nd Olympic triathlon where my 1.5k swim time was hovering around 27-29 minutes. With hopes of going pro, John worked with me and pushed me beyond my limits and in a short time for my last race, the AC Tri in September; I swam a 23 minute 1 mile swim. In 3 months John coached me and got me to drop my swim time by 4 minutes. With the 2013 race season on the horizon I’m excited to continue to work with John and to see the times I will produce as I chase my dream of becoming the first African American pro triathlete. (Note: In late 2014, Max achieved his goal! He has become the first African American male, Pro Triathlete. Congratulations, Max!) MAXFENNELL.NET
