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

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?

Sessions are available at Collingwood Leisure Centre, Fitzroy Swimming Pool and Richmond Recreation Centre.  

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

Session types

We're offering 4 different SwimFit sessions within our group exercise timetable.

  • SwimFit: For the independent swimmer who wants to dive straight in and go for it. This session is perfect for confident swimmers who are looking for a challenge in a social and inclusive environment.
  • SwimFit Pace: perfect for swimmers looking to focus on developing their stroke or are new to group swim sessions.
  • SwimFit Express: For all SwimFit and SwimFit Pace swimmers - a shorter 45 minute session, but still a great workout during your lunch break!
  • SwimFit+: For all SwimFit and SwimFit Pace swimmers - a 90 minute session perfect to build your endurance, technique and work harder for longer!

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.
