The programme requires 3 swimming sessions a week. The programme format will be delivered through two coached sessions in the pool you register for. A third session weekly will be completed through a self guided swim (included in the price). This swim must be used during public sessions in the pool you have registered for (ie. cannot be used in any other of the locations than the one you are training in). You will be provided with a formal workout programme booklet also.
