Olivier Poirier-Leroy

I am a former National level swimmer, turned publisher of YourSwimBook and YourWorkoutBook. The former is a goal setting guide and log book that was developed for age group and elite swimmers. I consult regularly with coaches and swimmers across the world on how to best implement and plan their goals for the season. YourWorkoutBook, on the other hand, is a log book and diet journal for people who are serious about their performance at the gym.
