Coached Swim Workouts

The goal of RTB Swim workouts is to prepare athletes to have a successful open water swim - no matter your ability level or experience. We believe everyone can train to successfully complete any OW swim!
These workouts are almost 100% freestyle. A coach leads the workouts which includes a Warm-up, Drills, and sets to build Fitness, Efficiency, & Strength.
If swimming is an area of potential improvement for you, these workouts will be perfect. They are similar to a master’s swim workout program without the requirement of a USMS membership (US Masters Swimming)
The Covid situation has had a major impact on our swim availability and pricing. Workouts are open to 2 swimmers per lane per workout.
Until we can get more swimmers in a lane, RTB members will pay $12.50 per workout. Non-members will pay $15. RTB MEMBERS - find a coupon code HERE.
Who can swim ??
These workouts are best suited for athletes who can swim 50 yards or more freestyle continuously. If you're there feel free to sign up! If you have some work to do to get there, contact Patty if you'd like to get some extra help.
What to bring?
Goggles are a must have and most people use a swim cap as well. If you own your own paddles, fins and swim buoy, bring them too. Fins will really help you progress more quickly if you're new! Periodically the coach will have you use them during a workout though it's never mandatory to do so. Paddles and fins are available for purchase with your registration. Many swimmers enjoy swimming in Core Shorts, which add buoyancy and make swimming easier! Find those at Northwest Tri & Bike
Don't Be Afraid!
It can be intimidating to come to a first coached workout if you haven't done one before. Rest assured, you might not find it particularly easy at first - but you will find friendly swimmers in the same boat as you, and a coach with a knack for getting the best out of every swimmer. Come!!! If you have concerns or questions, don't hesitate to Email Patty
We can connect you with some qualified coaches that provide private lessons. Email Patty if you are interested.
