TEAM… Together Everyone Accomplishes More-
As the saying goes, if you want to go fast, Go Alone. If you want to Go Far… you need a TEAM! Being part of a TEAM is hard-wired into the human DNA… finding the right TEAM can sometimes be a challenge.
At the Legacy Sport & Wellness Center we have a TEAM of people, each one aspiring to live a healthy and meaningful life with respect to their individual goals. Legacy has a Sport TEAM as well… a TEAM of professionals who work in the field(s) of human performance.
Over the next few months, Legacy Center will share a few of our TEAM members who either consult or visit the Legacy Sport & Wellness Center. This month’s TEAM member is four-time Olympian Jim Montgomery-
“Coach” Montgomery as he’s known around the Center and in exercise-class is a weekly-regular at the Legacy Center. Montgomery is a former world-record holder and the first man to break the 50 second barrier (49.99) in the 50m freestyle. He did this in the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal, Quebec where he won three gold medals and one bronze medal. He first achieved international attention at the first World Championships in 1973 where he won 5 gold medals in freestyle events. From Yugoslavia, Montgomery went to Indiana University to swim. In addition to enjoying weekly exercise classes @ the Legacy Center, and the personal invitation and attendance at the pro camps Legacy hosts as part of our SPORT Programming, Montgomery stays very active and in good physical condition. He coaches in Dallas and is the owner and founder of the Dallas Aquatic Masters Club Team.
