25m Pool Training Program - Beginner Racer 

Why start with 25m pool?

25m pool requires lower fitness requirement, which is more suitable for beginner swimmer to practise. It also allows swimmers to use training equipments such as kick-board and pull buoy.

This beginner swimming program aims to improve your
fundamental stroke techniques and reach fitness goals.
It can also strengthen your stamina and muscle tone.
The final goal of this program is to swim 400m smoothly with higher speed endurance.
The session length would be 45 mins approximately for each session.
Prioritise techniques rather than speed.
