TIM THOMPSON: LIFEGUARD
What job(s) have you held at the YMCA?
I’ve been a lifeguard since August of 2016. However, I’ve been working at pools since I was 14 years old in the surrounding areas (guarding, teaching, coaching, etc.) So that’s about 25ish years.
What’s your favorite grade in school and why?
Well I graduated in 2002 from Keene State College with a BS in technology studies, so that would be my favorite year of school.
Where can we find you when you’re not at the Y?
I also coach Phoenix Swimming which is based out of New Hampshire. We swim at Cedardale Health & Fitness located in Haverhill, MA. I can also be seen at Orangetheory Fitness or TITLE Boxing Club where I work out 4-5 times a week (and of course the Y as well).
Do you have any pets?
I don’t as we speak, but I’ve also wanted an aquarium so maybe in the future.
What’s your favorite sport to play? Favorite spectator sport?
Well I’ve been swimming since I was 5 years old on various club, college and masters teams in the area. So, that’s definitely something I enjoy. 😊
I do like to watch any New England sports teams while there on TV as well.
Do you have a hobby? If yes, what is it?
I do like to read about anything & everything that involves swimming to better my job as a swim coach. Is that a hobby?!?
What’s your favorite holiday and why?
My favorite holiday is any holiday that I don’t have to work. 😂 I do visit my family around the Thanksgiving/Christmas time depending on my work schedule. Anytime you can spend time with your family take advantage of it!!
If you could live anywhere, where would that be?
Anywhere that the temperature stays around 60-75 degrees. However I do love the 4 seasons of the year, so New England here I am!!
