The RIPT way…
We offer a variety of different workouts per day divided between 3 different fitness levels:
1. Fitness Swimmers - those who follow the workouts but do not want to participate in any organized meets or events. Swimmers within this group will have varying ability levels.
2. Masters Swimmers - participants may or may not participate in meets but are driven to improve technique and endurance.
3. Tri-athletes - swimmers have varying ability levels but are all driven to set and achieve goals. Swimmers may or may not participate in meets.
Practices will be focused for each specific group and will have different daily workouts within each fitness level to accommodate everyone. There are no requirements for the Fitness level but we do ask that swimmers can do both freestyle and backstroke proficiently.
Day one of your training will include an intake form so our coaches can get to know you and your personal goals while on our team. The more clear and concise you can be, the better our staff will be able to help you reach your maximum potential.
Cost: $45 per month
