As an added bonus, elite HEAT swimmers/triathletes will be joining Jeff on deck to assist with the workouts and share their considerable knowledge.

Everyone will also get access to all 24 customized swim workouts and Coach Jeff tips/drills.

All levels are welcomed and we guarantee you will improve.

NOTE: Registration is limited to 25 indivduals and pre-registration is required. 
Also, since this will sell out, during the first week, registrations are limited to HEAT members who did not get to attend the Fall series.
There will not be an option for “walk-ins”, but you can have someone “sub” for you (please make your own arrangements).

The Series will be on Sundays from 10:30am-Noon starting on March 9th and running until May 4th (skipping April 20th) at the St. Joe’s Aquatic center in West Hartford (HEAT will have the entire pool).
