Swimming is one of the most popular forms of aerobic exercise and a great workout for everyone from fitness enthusiast and tri-athletes to non-competitive swimmers. Structured workouts with a coach offer an individualized training experience to help swimmers improve general fitness or train for specific goals. The Masters Swimming program is open to all adult swimmers ages 18 and over, at beginning or advanced levels. Swimmers should be able to complete an hour-long training session in the pool.
Many Masters Swimming participants choose to participate in outside swim events. Because the Masters Swimming program is a registered swim club under U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS), all Galter LifeCenter master swimmers must register with USMS in order to participate in any USMS sanctioned event, such as the Big Shoulders 2.5K/5K open water event and the Postal Swim Series. Click here to register with USMS or renew an existing membership.
Chicago hosts many pool and open-water races throughout the year which provide opportunities to compete and measure individual progress at the local and state level. These swim events are a place to meet with friends, make new ones and have fun while testing the benefits of your training. Click here to view a list of upcoming swim events in Illinois.
