Adult fitness swimmers with no previous swim team experience
Former high school, college or masters competitive swimmers
Experienced triathletes and open-water swimmers
Masters Swim is:
A challenging workout incorporating all swimming strokes
Open to all swim levels
Focused on improving swim technique
An encouraging and fun environment
A great way to change up your workout, reduce exercise impact and get off of a fitness plateau
I've never done this before -- what should I expect? Whether you have swum competitively or mostly just dog-paddled, Masters Swim is for you!
While the sessions are 90 minutes long, it's not expected that you stay the entire time. Come during that window and stay for as long as works for you.
If you've thought about doing a triathlon but never felt your swimming was adequate for you to actively pursue that goal, Masters instructors work with you to prepare for your event.
Some Masters newcomers feel more comfortable taking a few private lessons first before moving to the open Masters Swimming sessions. See the contact information below if you feel this route is best for you.
Swimming offers full-body fitness and toning in a non-impact environment, and can make for a great change or addition to your workout regimen. A session or two of Masters can help you work up to lap swimming on your own for the greatest benefit to your overall fitness.
How do I participate? Purchase either 12 or 24 swim sessions -- you can use them during designated hours (Mon. mornings 5:30-7 a.m., and Tues. evenings 5:30-7 p.m.). The new fall session runs October 3-December 23. You can begin at any time during the session -- just tailor your package size (see below) based on the time remaining.
Do participants have to be Razor Sharp members? Nope! Members get preferential pricing, of course. But anyone can take advantage of our beautiful salt-water pool and comfortable facilities.
Finally, what about the prices? Prices are tailored to how often you'd like to avail yourself of the pool, the coaching and the camaraderie of the Masters program:
Package Members Non-Members/Guests 12-session $120 $180 24-session 228 342
I'm still not sure if it's right for me. What do you suggest? Well, come and try it out for free, of course! Prospective new Masters Swimmers are offered a complimentary session. There's nothing to work out ahead of time to take advantage of this offer. Just come to one of the regular sessions, introduce yourself to the instructor, and s/he will explain it all to you and get you going!
