RTB's Coached Pool Workouts
Tuesday & Thursday 5:30-6:30 am
Covington Aquatic Center
18230 SE 240th St, Covington, WA 98042
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)
We are now swimming indoors at the Covington Aquatic Center.
Pricing per swim
The more swims you sign up for, the less expensive it is per swim.
RTB members receive a 25% discount.
10.1% sales tax will be added to this price when you register.
Unused swims from one session can't roll over to the next, so use them up!
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. Many swimmers enjoy swimming in Core Shorts, which add buoyancy and make swimming easier! Find any of 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
Erin Eronemo has a few decades of triathlons under his belt, and 20 years of swim coaching. Erin has a real knack at helping adult-onset swimmers get going quickly.
