Swim Training

For Triathletes and Swimmers

Swim Training for Triathletes and Swimmers

Do you want to be a triathlete? Or are you a swimmer that wants to improve? Start your triathlon training off right by working on your weakest link in the triathlon - the swim! This 7-week training program is geared towards those new to the sport of triathlon and those who have competed in triathlons and want to work on their swim. This class is also appropriate for swimmers that want to improve their form and endurance.

This 7 week program is the perfect opportunity for athletes preparing for the upcoming triathlon season. The objective of our class is to improve your swim speed and endurance by focusing on stroke technique and overall efficiency. Each week, you will practice drills to build muscle memory through correct repetition. We will start with the fundamentals and progressively build into more advanced drills. Athletes will complete this class feeling more comfortable in the water at faster swim speeds.

Swim 101 (Beginner): Great for those who are nervous about swimming and need to improve their basic skills necessary to swim comfortably. Participants must be able to swim, but not well. We will provide stroke instruction, swim endurance and beginner swim workouts to get you confident in the water.

Swim 201 (Advanced): Perfect for intermediate to advanced swimmers looking to increase speed and endurance while refining stroke and technique.
