Meet Davide: Swim Fit Instructor

Swim Fit Instructor Davide

Did you know there's a group fitness class at the Doug Ellis Swimming Pool on Clayton campus?

If you know how to swim and want to jump in the pool for some exercise weekly, our Swim Fit classes are for you!

Swim Fit is designed to keep you fit, as well as to improve your swimming technique with guidance from our qualified instructors.

Davide is one of our qualified Swim Fit instructors, and says any keen swimmer can join a Swim Fit class.

"We swim between 2-3kms each session in Swim Fit, but don't let that discourage you! If you have been swimming 1km on your own, can swim freestyle and another stroke, and even if you can swim 100m without stopping, come give it a try," he said.

"Start off with just swimming a warm up and build your endurance up through regular attendance and even individual practice, so that eventually you are able to complete the whole session!"

Swim Fit is designed for adults and catered for those who prefer swimming in a group rather than alone, features Davide enjoys when running a class.

"You get to train with an awesome squad of like minded swimmers! I know I find it hard myself going for swims on my own, so having that squad there, and a coach to push you along is great motivation. Other than the environment, it's a great way to keep fit and something different to other fitness classes offered at Monash Sport," he said.

"I gained my AUSTSWIM Teacher of Competitive Strokes and Teacher of Swimming and Water Safety Qualifications when I was 17 years old, and started out teaching swim lessons on a Saturday Morning and coaching the junior squad once a week."

"Now at Monash Sport, I coach 4 of the 5 Swim Fit sessions and teach mainly Adult swimming lessons on a Saturday Morning."

Join Davide in the Doug Ellis Pool for a Swim Fit class today! Classes run for 30 minutes, and are a great option for a morning or lunch time workout.
