3 Points Challenge


Awesome challenge. Get ready for summer before it starts

Life Changing Program Incorporating running and swimming training with underwater video analysis of your swimming stoke, fitness testing, fitness programing during a 10 week program. The first month prepares you for the last 6 weeks where you train in the surf at North Curl Curl Surf club and do our very own practice event. Childcare is available at every session. This is a program that will make a fantastic difference to your summer. 

Summer 2017. The 3 Points + 3 Pools Challenge.

It's your choice....or just do both!

3 Points Challenge

You battle three surf breaks, three tough swims and three flat out runs. The 3 Points Challenge demands your fitness focus as you countdown to the race, Summer and Christmas. It's exciting because you tick-off so many goals without even thinking about them.

Training will begin at 10am on Saturday 16 September & 6.30am on Sunday 17 September 2017 at Balmoral with everyone given a set time to do their first swimming test so that we can set your program, film your stroke underwater and set your goals for the program. 

Everyone will received their customised program and video analysis on their swimming and then go away and work on laying their water fitness foundations before returning after the school holidays to commence the program proper on Sunday 8 October. (We also usually have a bonus session on the Monday of the October long weekend! ) 

WHAT WILL YOU ACHIEVE

If last year's team is anything to go by, you can expect to achieve:

  • Improved confidence in your swimming, water fitness and ability;
  • Increased running fitness and pace;
  • Weight loss and improved muscle tone;
  • Fantastic fitness returns from the combination of running and swimming;
  • An overwhelming sense of achievement as you achieve something new, improve on last year or just do something you weren't sure you could; and
  • A new energy and motivation for your fitness that you can share amongst a great team.

Take a look for yourself in the video below.

    Refreshing Water Temperature

    We are starting the program earlier this year so for the first two weeks of the program some people find the water chilly. Get in quickly and start your training. That will keep you warm more than anything else but if you feel you need some thermal support you can buy a wetsuit or thermal rash shirt 2-3mm thick. However they make it harder to get your arms out of the water and you can get rashes from them.

    You can buy a tri suit that is good for swimming and running. Really handy. Here are some links:

    Swimming Gear Required

    Please make sure you bring with you:

    • Goggles;
    • A swimming cap if you feel the cold;
    • Flippers;
    • A kicking board; and
    • Hand paddles.

    Waterproof Stopwatch

    A waterproof stopwatch the can record your lap times is vital. Most basic digital watches can do it. You only need to be able to record one lap time. It is also great if it has a timer on it and even better if you can set different interval times. At a pinch you can use your phone. Not so good in the pool though.
