Masters swim with Suzy cropped

ET Masters is a weekly adult swimming program designed for triathlon and fitness swimmers. USA certified coaches will provide structured workouts and explain how to do the workouts and drills at each one-hour group session.

ET Masters uses a classic periodized training model to progress swimmers from Base period (General Prep) to Build period (Sports Specific) to Peak Race (Pre-Competitive). Research has shown that athletes following a periodized training model are better optimized for race events.

ET Masters Naperville includes baseline and periodic time-trial testing. Athletes will receive objective test results to validate improved performance levels over the off season.

“Almost all of our swimmers saw decreases in their 50m times with an average drop of 2 seconds and the most drastic drop of 6 seconds. All swimmers decreased their 75m, 100m, and 200m times by an average of 9 seconds, 6, seconds, and 9 seconds, respectively.”

Lida at Racineby Lida K.

Once upon a time on my bucket list I said I would like to complete an Ironman. My husband sort of laughed it off and said, “You are a swimmer! Are you serious?” I let it go… We had young kids and I was overly committed to helping in classrooms and every other aspect of their lives that required a volunteer. But, I thought, some day… Fast forward 10 years and all three kids are in college. My good friend from masters swim said she had signed up to volunteer for the Ironman race and she was going to do it next year. I thought okay, perfect! So we volunteered at Ironman Wisconsin, had a total blast and were caught up in the electrifying atmosphere of the race day, seeing friends finish and enjoying the sites of Madison. We got up bright and early the following day to get our spot for next year’s race. Yes, I plunked down a huge amount of money and then went home thinking OMG, I don’t even have a real bike… how am I going to do this? That was just one of my concerns, along with I have no idea how to train for this and how am I going to find the time with working full time? My friend told me about Experience Triathlon and I thought I would check them out and interview a coach and see if it was a good fit. The answer was yes, it was a great fit and who knew how many changes I would see in seven short months. Coach Joe LoPresto, along with Muneer at Spokes Wheaton, helped me find the right bike for my budget. Coach Joe then continued to check in with me until my “official” start date of training.
