Goal of the Month - June


June is to improve on one thing outside of the pool!



Tip of the Month - June

Try to take 5 minutes a day to improve your flexibility out of the water! Goal is to hit pecs, lats, shoulders, hamstrings, ankles and hips. Static stretching, five minutes a day, will yield better results than doing it once or twice a week, or only when you feel an injury coming on. Make flexibility and mobility a keystone component of your swimming!
