For swimmers who have a strong grasp of swimming basis, HealthQuest Fitness offers competitive swim lessons to help individuals prepare for the upcoming meet season. We offer healthy exercise in an encouraging environment that focuses on refining the basic strokes of backstroke, freestyle, butterfly, and breaststroke.

Our program gives swimmers the choice of increasing their abilities through the certified USA Swimming program or competing recreationally with other swimmers from the organization for fun and enjoyment.

Summary of Lessons

As a competitive swimmer, we understand that every second you shave off your time counts. Whether you need to get stronger and faster or want to develop your competitive skills, you can achieve this with our professional staff members and the state-of-the-art facility.

Whether having you swim laps in the large pool or utilizing video technologies, we provide the feedback and instruction to help you get ahead of the competition. Choose from private lessons to ensure you get plenty of one-on-one time to work on your weak areas or opt for group classes that help you get used to swimming and competing with a team. Before teaching any class, all instructors are certified in CPR and first aid and must pass the HealthQuest Fitness Swim Instructor Training Program.

The USA Swimming program is responsible for choosing and training swimmers for the US Olympic games and international competitions.

Skills Emphasized And Developed

Competitive swimming teaches a variety of skills, but all swimmers must master the basics before being considered for the competition. These skills include breathing, water safety, and basic swimming strokes. There are all types of competitions, based on skill level, age, league, and region. The skills learned in lessons depend on the type of competitions an individual will compete in, such as the butterfly or freestyle. Some teams participate in relay-style races, including the 25-yard, 25-meter, and 50-meter races. Divers compete in several types of events, including springboard and platform diving. The dive methods taught include the forward, back, inward, reverse, arm-stand, and twist. All lessons focus on improving swim strokes and form, achieving goals, and gaining confidence.

Lesson Philosophy

Our HealthQuest Fitness team philosophy is to focus on both the swimmer and the parent to help minimize the gap between an individual's potential and the ability to compete. In each lesson, we stress quality over quantity, so you also get your money's worth. Our professional instructors emphasize a commitment to the team, conditioning to make each swimmer stronger, sportsmanship, and teamwork. We want to make sure each athlete has a positive and successful swimming experience, whether you decide to compete on a team or learn the basics.

Instruction Methods

Our swimming team instruction methods focus on muscular strength, cardiovascular training, endurance, core strength, and conditioning. We tailor all of our lessons to the individual swimmer. You can also choose the day and time of your lessons to suit your schedule.
