Before we tell you about the new lower prices at RTB swim, we have a story for you...
In 2018, Joseph Cordell joined RTB. Joseph is 32 years old and among other things, is a triathlete and Martial Arts instructor. When he joined RTB, he was new to lap swimming with a long way to go. He made his way to the pool once a week, worked very hard, and made some progress swimming through those next few years.
When we made the switch from swimming at the Covington pool to the outdoor pool at KSTC in October 2021, Joseph was willing (along with a few other brave souls) to show up at the pool at 5:00AM in any weather, remove the pool covers, do water tests, open and close, stay late to cover the pool, chase down prowlers, and whatever else came up. (He's also become a very valuable member of the RTB Events staff).
As a result, Joseph has been swimming 3 days a week for a year and now he swims in Lane 2 at about a 1:30/100 yd pace! That's a. huge improvement over his once-a-week abilities. We've seen this investment pay-off with many other swimmers who come more frequently. You get a little faster swimming hard, once or twice a week. But you sure get faster, much faster, swimming 2-3 times a week.
Another thing while we're talking swim. Right now, we don't have a full pool of people at every swim. There's still plenty of room for more folks to get faster! The workouts and community are great. Erin Eronemo is a terrific coach for all levels of swimmers. We want as many people as possible to swim as often as possible and realize their potential. I'm sure work/family schedules, no showers in the winter, and cold air temps are a factor that work against frequent swimming at these workouts. We can't do much about that. But we're betting the cost of swims is also a factor for many of us.
