Do you want to participate in your first triathlon but don't feel confident with the swim? Already tried one, but want to improve your swimming technique, speed and/or endurance? Are you tired of having to hang on the wall every length? Would you like to become more efficient and finally enjoy swimming? Let the coaches from CES help you! We will teach you efficient swimming techniques, challenge you with great workouts and send you home with a new perspective on triathlon swimming.
In order to maintain the high quality that CES is known for (and which participants expect of CES), this program has a limited amount of spots.
Not quite ready for Master Swim, but looking for more than just technique work? This class is a great way to transition to a more fitness based class, without overwhelming you with new terminology and intense training. We'll spend time teaching you the basics of interval training in the pool, blending in technique work alongside the group workouts. You should be able to swim a minimum of four (4) lengths of the pool without stopping. Notice we didn't say how FAST you had to do it! That's why you're taking the class, right?
This program is open to all adult swimmers (fitness, triathlete, competitive, non-competitive) who are dedicated to improving their fitness through swimming. One of the greatest benefits of Masters swimming is to be able to practice with an organized group. Our coaches will challenge you with structured workouts, designed to improve your endurance, strength, speed and power in the water. You should be able to swim a minimum of eight (8) or more lengths of the pool without stopping. Notice we didn't say how FAST you had to do it!
Both Classes are 60 minutes/class.
