These small group sessions are aimed at intermediate to advanced swimmers and triathletes to provide an hours exclusive coached Open Water Training. We will do many things that you would normally do in a pool, including drills and endurance/tempo sets but always with an open water focus where swimming straight, being aware of your fellow swimmers and gaining race advantage from technical ability is key.
Swap the pool for open water one evening and come and do a structured training set with me to improve your open water race performance whilst getting an aerobic training session! Club group bookings are very welcome and I can tailor around you groups ability and needs.
This year, we have introduced a new booking/pre-payment system to make your experience as safe, easy and fast as possible on the day.
