Fitter Swimming

FITTER SWIMMING SQUADS cater for people who want to either improve their endurance and technique for triathlon and open water swimming or just maintain their general fitness through swimming. Our squads require a basic level of proficiency in freestyle and incorporate general swimming drills into the program along with fly, back and breaststroke where appropriate.  The emphasis of these squads is to build and maintain a strong fitness level and regular attendance is encouraged.

Our squads run on a continuous basis stopping only for a short break over the Christmas & New Year period.

If you’re unsure as to which squad might be suitable come along for a free swim and assessment.  To arrange this and for more information about the squads, e-mail us at fitter.swimming@xtra.co.nz

Personal video footage is made available to participants post session via file sharing through Drop Box. Swimmers will also be e-mailed a document outlining corrective swimming drills and how to perform them.
