Bearcat Bites with Swimming’s Julian Tineo


Our 31st interview is Julian Tineo from the men’s swimming team.

Major: International Business

Q: How many credits are you taking this semester?

I’m taking 12 credits – it’s my last full semester before I graduate.  

Q: What is your best workout routine?

My go-to workout at home starts with yoga and breath work before going into mostly bodyweight exercises. I don’t plan too far in advance, I just do whatever feels good for the day that I’m working out. Sometimes it’s a run or bike ride, other times I’ll use my dumbbells or bands, and sometimes it’s just yoga. I like this approach since it makes it really easy for me to keep my mind completely focused on whatever it is I choose to do, which is when I feel I’m at my best.

Q: Do you have a self-care routine? What is it?

I wouldn’t say I have a self-care routine as much as I have a mindset that I maintain to feel good. I just try to be very deliberate about what I spend my time on and do things that are fulfilling instead of things that just pass time. If something I’m working on starts to frustrate me or stress me out, I’ll stop and do something else before returning to it later with a clear head. Usually I only need a break of a few minutes but sometimes I’ll stop doing that thing for days or weeks at a time and then come back feeling refreshed and productive.

 
Q: If you could play with anybody in your sport, who would it be?

I’d like to hear from Katie Ledecky about her mindset going into distance swims because, as a sprinter, that world is completely unknown to me. I feel like there are a lot of transferable skills between distance swimming and everyday life that I could learn from but I’ve historically been very, very bad at distance swimming so I wouldn’t know. 

 
Q: What made you decide to attend Baruch College?

My top priority when choosing colleges was to pick one from which I could graduate without going into debt. I also wanted to go to a school with a variety of majors to choose from since I didn’t really know what I wanted to study when I finished high school. I thought Baruch would be a good fit for me and was strongly considering it among other schools, though when I was offered a full scholarship the decision became easy. 

 
Q: What do you miss the most about being on campus with your team and playing?

Competing in meets with the team was always so much fun. Whether at home or away, there was always so much to look forward to during every competition and I wish I had known that last year’s Metropolitan Championship meet was going to be my last meet with the team. We always had so much to joke about but when it was time to get serious and compete, we were unstoppable and it was so amazing to be part of that day after day. 

 
Q: If you could be any animal for 24 hours, which one would it be?

I’d be a bald eagle so I could fly around for a while. I guess any bird can do that but bald eagles are a top-tier bird so I’d go with that.

 
Q: What is the first thing you will do when life goes back to normal?

See a performance at the Blue Note or a DJ at Nowadays. Whichever is available first. 

Q: Do you have any pre-match superstitions?

No superstitions but I did realize that listening to intense music to get excited right before a race does not work for me; I get mentally tired out before I even get on the starting block. I perform much better when I listen to something relaxed and let the excitement build up from within me more organically. 

 
Q: What made you decide to compete in swimming?

When I started at Baruch I figured I should try joining one of the teams to stay in shape and I chose swimming since it was the sport I had competed in most recently at that time. I swam on my high school’s team during my freshman year though I hadn’t competed in any other sport since then so I figured it was my best option. 

 
Q: What is your dream job? Where do you hope to see yourself 10 years from now?

I want to build things that have a positive impact on people. I think a good way to do that is to start a company so I plan to do that when the opportunity comes up. Ten years from now I hope to be working on something that will contribute to solving the climate crisis since a lot of the world’s issues can be addressed through the lens of climate change. It’s impossible to plan so far ahead, though. Ideally I’ll be working in a field that doesn’t even exist right now.
