Feeding your (swimming) addiction

Caldera-Vacanza-2014-Salina-WhitePearl-Espresso-Lifestyle-01 (750x1000)Here are a couple of cold, hard facts about the Skovish pool in your backyard.

First, admit it, swimming is addictive! It feels good to slip into the water and, with buoyancy removing all pressure from the joints, race around like a kid again. Because water offers much more resistance than air, you can get a real work-out.

With the endorphins racing, you’re high on life!

But you live in Pennsylvania and that means, unless your pool is inside, it will soon close for the season.

  • Check out your community indoor pools. Local schools often open their pools to residents, usually for a small fee. Is there a YMCA nearby? They also offer exercise classes, lap times, and simple recreational swims. The down side?

  • Plan your vacations accordingly. To twist a familiar phrase, it’s summertime somewhere. With bathing suit in hand, you can find a welcoming beach (or all-inclusive coastal resort with 14 pools – don’t laugh, it’s true). Click here to find some popular island escapes.

It’s the best of both worlds, relaxing in the warm jets of a hot tub between the exercises that burn more calories than you can imagine. It’ll be right outside your door, ready whenever you are. Bring it on, and be ready for bathing suit season when you open your Skovish pool next spring!
