SwimFit is an 8-week swimming for exercise program with a max of 10 participants per class. The class is appropriate for any swimmer who can safely swim 100 yards in the pool without stopping (regardless of stroke). This program has often been referred to a starter program for anyone interested in swimming on an adult swim team/US Masters team. The focus of the class is less about “how to swim” and more about “how to swim efficiently” with the goal of encouraging participants to “swim for exercise” as part of their membership and overall general health. Each week of class there will be a teaching focus with some progression, but mostly drills, sets, clock usage, etc.
Mondays 5:30am – 6:15am
Fridays 6:00am – 6:45am
This 8-week, once a week class, includes a pre-and-post skill assessment. The classes are 30 minutes long with several offerings each week.
The Beginner class is taught in the Exercise Pool and is geared toward the non-swimmer. Anyone who can’t float, is nervous about putting their face in the water, struggles with floating, etc. should be in “beginner.” The Intermediate Class is taught in the Lap Pool and is for the adult who can swim, but is not confident in the water. This class focuses on basic skill development, including all 4 main strokes, stroke refinement for freestyle and backstroke, drill and endurance introductions.
There are 5 adults to 1 instructor in each class. All are open to both members and non-members.
Mondays 6:30pm – 7:00pm
Tuesdays 6:00pm – 6:30pm and 6:30pm – 7:00pm
Saturdays 10:00am – 10:30am
