“I’d love to do a triathlon, but I can’t swim!”
We hear this all the time and know how you feel. You can swim..sort of… but you can’t do continuous laps with any great skill. Perhaps you have enjoyed the ocean for play, but haven’t done any distance swimming. Somehow, you are lured by the challenge and excitement of triathlon. We are here to help!
We think everyone can enjoy swimming for triathlon and beyond. Swimming is a sport you can enjoy for a lifetime. It is perfect cross-training and uses most every muscle in the body. Once you learn to swim well, you can modify your swims for gentle recovery or high-intensity fitness training. Living in Southern California, there are hundreds of pools and gorgeous beaches where we can swim year-round. What a treasure! Take advantage of the pristine open water options and explore a whole new world of local, low-cost, lifetime fun for yourself.
TriLaVie & Swim Velocity are partner programs founded by coach Martha Szufnarowski to meet the needs of swimmers in the pool, lakes and the ocean. While TriLaVie focuses on women and triathlon training, Swim Velocity is a co-ed program geared to all levels of swimmers providing lessons, personal coaching and group training experiences throughout the year at local venues.
TriLaVie & Swim Velocity athletes train for a wide-range of competitions in addition to triathlons such as open water events and swim meets. The swim is a component of an exciting new field of multi-sport events such as Aquathlons (swim + run) Ocean Festivals (sand run + swim + paddle board + surf!), rough water swims in exotic locations and so much more!
TriLaVie & Swim Velocity coaches utilize specialized techniques to meet the unique needs of adult swimmers. Most of our swimmers are highly motivated but require basic skills to improve swimming style and endurance. Our coaches focus on personalized programs of instruction and drills to bring about the most improvement in performance in a short time. Through a combination of breathing, form and endurance training techniques, swimmers progress quickly toward their goals. TriLaVie & Swim Velocity coaches are certified lifeguards, swim instructors and coaches with current CPR/FirstAid training. TriLaVie & Swim Velocity hold accreditations from the American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA), US Masters Swimming Association (USMA), United States of America Triathlon (USAT) and the American Red Cross (ARC).
TriLaVie swim programs are offered at various locations including local pools, lakes, bays and surf-lined beaches. The open water swim locations are chosen to meet the goals of the athletes depending upon the type of event you choose. There is a perfect swim location for each level of swimmer in Orange County.
TriLaVie & Swim Velocity offer programs to help you improve your swimming and are good for people at all levels of fitness.
