SwimFit is a recommendation from our aquatic training programs review in December 2019 and is replacing our swim squads and Yarra Triathlon offering. 

We’re getting ready to launch our brand new swimming program, SwimFit on Monday 23 November at Richmond Recreation Centre and Fitzroy Swimming Pool. 

So, what is SwimFIT?

SwimFit is a swimming fitness program that supports a range of levels, abilities and skills, encompassing all 4 swimming strokes. 

Under the guidance of a knowledgeable and passionate swim coach you’ll be challenged to develop your technique and swimming fitness and empowered to smash your goals.

Where are these sessions offered?

These sessions will be available at Fitzroy Swimming Pool and Richmond Recreation Centre from Monday 23 November. In early 2021 sessions will also be offered at Collingwood Leisure Centre. 

Sessions are structured like a class with a swim coach and a small group of swimmers of similar skill and ability. 

Session types

From Monday 23 November we will be offering 60 minute SwimFit sessions within our group exercise timetable.

As Victorian Government restrictions ease and we are able to facilitate more sessions in our timetable, we will be introducing 3 other session types; SwimFit Pace, SwimFit+ and SwimFit-eXpress. These session types will have unique class structures, coach interaction, and session durations to give you flexibility to choose what works for you and your schedule. 

Who are the coaches?

Our coaches are qualified swimming industry professionals who have experience excelling in the pool and as a coach. They'll be able to work closely with you to improve your swimming ability and reach your swimming goals, whatever they may be. 

Do I need to be a confident swimmer?

Yes, SwimFit is for swimmers who can comfortably swim at least 500m in a mixture of swimming strokes. 

How old do I need to be?

To join our SwimFit program you need to be 14 years and above. 

How much is a session?

Sessions are the same as group exercise pricing

How do I book?

Bookings will open for each session 72 hours in advance from 6am Friday 20 November.
