    In 2008, my mom took me to my older sister Hannah’s swim tryout. I was standing around on the deck, waiting for her to finish, when a man named Joe Cabel walked up to me and told me that I should try out, because my lengthy legs would make me fast. Cabel has been known to stretch the truth a little bit, and 8 1/2 years later, I’m not much faster. But I’ve definitely learned a lot of things, mostly from my high school seasons. Freshman year, I learned to follow and respect the seniors, and as I…

    replied with confidence. I thought she was probably right; all of the sports that I have ever been apart of have never scared me away within the first week, but this is swim and I knew nothing about swimming. We sat in the circle with all of the experienced swimmers and other newbies while our new coaches sat in the center. Mr. Page and Mrs. Marion looked at us and smiled as our information papers and swim caps were handed to us. “How’s it going? Are you ready to swim?” Mr. Page asked us with…

    I was watching the Santa Clara Arena Swim Series over the past weekend and I was reflecting on elite swimming careers. I watched the ageless Anthony Ervin and Natalie Coughlin race and compete at a high-level into their mid-thirties. Twenty years ago, no one was competing at this age! I kept asking myself, how are these older athletes having this historic swimming career? After much thought I realized, health is the answer! Health is a broad term, but holistically all the elements of health…

    Swimming People advanced from ocean animals however—taking a gander at our bodies—you 'd never know it. We couldn 't be less appropriate to traveling through water in the event that we attempted. We don 't coast too well, can 't relax for long underneath the surface, and quickly tire as we whip through the waves attempting to move ourselves along; in a straight race with a dolphin or a shark, you 'll generally come last! In any case, there 's one major favorable position we people have: we think…

    They say swimming is 10% physical and 90% mental; that is true beyond belief. I started competitive swimming when I was seven years old. I loved it. I was never the best swimmer, but I usually did well in my races. As I got older, the swims become longer, the practices became harder, and the mental strains became greater. The challenges never bothered me too much. Then I reached high school . My freshman year, I was lucky enough to earn my spot on the varsity swim team. My main goal that…

Over the years, I have made lifelong friendships, unforgettable memories, and achieved goals set for myself and the team. My swimming career has been primarily known for…

    How to Get a Good Workout in the Pool Working out in the pool might not seem like the most effective way to slim down and shape up, but a pool-based workout burns a surprising number of calories, boosts your metabolism, works every muscle in your body, and improves your over-all fitness level. Working out in the swimming pool is so effective because water provides natural resistance – as it is almost 800 times denser than air – so each movement that you make while submerged in water works your…
