Jim Izzi


I am somewhat new to swimming.  In 2007, while training for a triathlon, swimming in the Milford pool, I was interrupted by the MAC founder, and former Head Coach, Suzanne Grebe, who kicked me out of my lane and said “MAC masters swim practice is about to start”.   Reluctantly, I moved down to lane one, I watched MAC, and thought “wow… that looks like fun”…  Two weeks later I signed up, and have been swimming with MAC ever since.

In October, 2015, I joined the MAC coaching staff, and began  Personal Training at Huron Valley Pools and Fitness. I am currently on the board of Michigan Masters Swimming as Sanctions Officer, and serve as Communications Director (since 2016).

I enjoy exercising, and have competed in running events from full marathons to 5k, triathlons from half ironman to sprint distance, and swam competing at local, state, national and international levels. My list of hobbies range from endurance bike adventures, cross country skiing and any other outdoor activity that meets the criteria of a fun challenge.

Certifications Include:
• USMS Certified Swim Coach – Levels 1, 2 & 3
• Red Cross Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED
• Primary Personal Trainer
