Fast lane time cycles are designed for high end age group to elite swimmers, while the slow lane is more open; with the coach selecting sets based on personal fitness.

Fins are used extensively to add form and distance for swimming beginners
To see if you are ready to begin with the slower lane, complete a 500m swim with just 5 second rest each 50m lap
If you are unable to complete the 500m with short rest, consider stroke correction with Simon to fast track your progress towards squad level
