Hey there RYPEness,
I happen to be a member of a Master’s Swim Program and I love it! I think a lot of people see these programs and get intimidated by the word “Masters”. However, in the context of swim programs, “Masters” means over the age of 20. So….no more excuses if you have a program near you that you can join! It really is a lot of fun. In my program there are all levels of swimmers and all kinds of reasons why each belongs. Some of us are triathletes, some folks use it as part of their weekly fitness program. There are some twenty-somethings all the way up to some fifty-somethings. Some of us are slow, some are really fast. But, at that end of that hour we all have had a great workout and feel very energetic for the day ahead. Swimming with the group provides a social element, and also provides the competitive challenges that make you push yourself to go a little harder for that last lap, or minute or drill.
I just read an article on swimming and it totally speaks to all the reasons why YOU should get in the pool! Check it out:
Hey YOU….get in the pool!
