Swim Fit Classes are designed for members and casual users of The Doug Ellis Swimming Pool who wish to add swimming to their health and fitness routine.
Swimming is a great way to improve cardiorespiratory fitness and endurance. It is also a great all over body workout, increasing core strength and muscle tone in a non-impact environment. It is also a proven recovery method.
Classes are conducted by AUSTSWIM qualified instructors, designed to increase fitness levels whilst providing stroke correction and instruction to improve swimming technique.
Whether you are a recreational swimmer, wanting to improve your fitness and swimming ability or have goals of participating in open water or other aquatic events, these classes are for you*.
- The sessions are 1 hour in duration
- These classes are available for all Aquatics and Fitness + Aquatics Members and casual Swim Fit pass holders.
We customise our Swim Fit classes each lesson depending on the capabilities and skill sets of our participants. Classes consist of a warm-up, main set and cool-down. This may include sprints, kick drills, HIIT (high-intensity interval training), individual medley mini-set swimming in at least two different strokes, plus a main set of freestyle.
Sessions require a minimum fitness level of 1200 meters /hour. Participants need to be able to swim at least Freestyle, Backstroke and Breaststroke with competent technique.
If you are unsure whether you meet the requirements, we can complete a swimming assessment. We may recommend enrolment into our Learn to Swim Adult program if there are any technical gaps before joining Swim Fit.
