Coached Open Water Swim Sessions
Learning to swim in open water can be difficult but is an important part of Triathlon racing. That's why Functional Fitness Events are now offering open water swim training to help you get into the water and start setting some pb swim splits.
The sessions are aimed at everyone, from beginners looking to enter open waters for the first time, to experts looking to just spend time in the water to master their technique or even just get some extra practice in.
The aim here is to replicate the conditions of the water in a race scenario, getting you used to how the water is effected by having a lot of swimmers all trying to move through it quickly at the same time. The sessions also offer safety as it is important to not swim alone when it comes to open water, so this is the perfect chance to improve your skills and attempt to recreate the race-day experience.
