With another school year starting, make sure to add swimming to your routine and try the Fall Fitness Challenge, a 1-mile swim completed between Nov. 15-30, and the third event in the SmartyPants Vitamins USMS Fitness Series.
This event is designed for anyone who wants to get in shape entering the holiday season or doesn't want to put off their fitness goals until the new year. Whether you're just getting into swimming or back into the sport after a long time away from the pool, swimming 1 mile is an excellent fitness goal. The Fall Fitness Challenge can be done in any manner desired: straight through, as a member of a relay, or even with fins.
If you need help getting ready, we have six-week training plans for swimmers of all ability levels.
