Many swimmers have club teams that they can train with over the summer. While I do have the option of swimming with a club team this summer, I want to pursue other methods of working out. Some people like swimming year round, but some of us like to spice up our training by doing exercises out of the pool. This is crucial in keeping the love of the sport, by taking a break and hanging up the suit. Here are some activities you should look into if you want other options besides tedious swim practices:
1. Bicycling- This summer try taking your bicycle instead of your vehicle everywhere you go. This will keep you endurance will giving you some fresh air.
2. Boxing- I looked online and found various boxing clubs around my area. There are many more places than you would expect. Boxing sounds like fun, and it is going to keep me on the edge!
3. Gym Membership- This summer I am also joining a local gym by my house. I would like to focus on muscle strength. Initially, if you have the extra dough, I highly recommend investing in a personal trainer. They will show you the ropes of the gym, as well as advise your diet.
Hope this helps! Switching it up can be very refreshing and I urge you to try it.
