1 Week Free Trial!
Yep that’s right, 1 week free Bootcamp, Run Group, Boxing Classes and Fit Mums.
Unlimited sessions, as many as you like for the whole week!
Because our clients love Beachside Personal Trainers sessions, and we love seeing them coming to our sessions and making amazing improvements in their fitness, health and every other aspect of their lives and we want to see you join in the fun and start making a change for the better in your life as well.
For so many people the hardest thing is starting, especially if you don’t know what to expect. We understand that it’s scary and can be daunting joining most other fitness groups and that’s why we let everyone try out our sessions, get to know the new faces you’ll be seeing each week, and chat with your trainer about any concerns you have, so you can put your mind at ease and enjoy the benefits of what exercising in the fresh air and sunshine will bring.
To prove to you that our sessions are the most fun, rewarding and effective sessions, we want you to come along for free and try it out. You get the whole entire week of unlimited session for free. So you can come to any sessions, at any time, weather it’s fit mums, bootcamp, run group or boxing and you don’t have to pay a cent. We start all our clients (but we’re more like family) out with the beginner variations of the exercises and encourage taking it a little easier at the start so we can progress through the levels safely and we can make sure you are always working out at your most effective.
All you have to do is turn up with a towel, a drink bottle and a ‘give-it-a-go’ attitude and the world (and the whole week) is your oyster. Sound good?
It would be great if you could fill out the form below to let me know that you’re coming along, or if you have any questions at all.
Have a look at what you can achieve below and I’ll see you soon!
Swimming outdoors is different to swimming in a pool. Practice swimming in different environments (check safe first) as rock pools, lakes, harbours, and protected beaches. The main difference is not having a black line to follow, and no wall to rest on, plus you may need to lift head up and arms more from the water (to see and lift above swell). Whilst swimming in an event aim to observe and follow the more experienced swimmers.Wollongong Harbour is mostly protected and offers shelter from the seas and most winds but it can get bumpy depending on tide and water activity. The water is mostly clean and you can see the bottom on most days. Lifeguards patrol the waters and as a small boat harbour, it is well away from any commercial large vessels. Build up distance. If your aim is 200m (kids or ladies tryaqua) or the short (400m swim) or long (900m), work up to achieving half of the distance in one go. Once you achieve this, add two lots of half distance (ie 200m + 200m with a minute or two rest), than reduce the ‘rest’ to when you can pretty well make the full distance – ideally aim to cover 100-200m more than the event distance before the event day. OPEN water practice: Try rock pools, protected beaches, harbours, lakes and safe open water venues to get used to no black line, bumpy conditions and feeling of ‘open water swim’ grab a Beachside teammate, book a 1-on-1 or private group PT session in by yourself or with a friend or two and of course come to our free group training sessions on Saturday morning. Get the correct gear: swimmers and a good pair of googles is all you need but for those that want extra floatation (for speed and/or comfort) a wetsuit can make a large difference.
• For most people the majority of training will be done in a pool. If it’s your first open water swim, aim to complete a distance a bit further than the event
• You may need to breathe to a side you’re not used to because of swell, other competitors or to help sighting, so try and practice breathing to both sides.Bilateral breathing is better for training anyway because it keeps your stroke balanced.
• You don’t need to just do long distance swims to train for an open water race.Sets of shorter repetitions with rest intervals work well when combined with longer distances, plus they keep training interesting.
• The more efficient your stroke is, the easier it is to swim further. Practice trying to extend each arm pull, and aim to do less strokes per length while keeping your rhythm smooth.
