Swimming at the YMCA

Often called the perfect sport, swimming burns fat, builds muscle, reduces stress, improves body confidence, and strengthens the heart, lungs, and brain. Swimming requires less equipment, causes fewer injuries, and generates less laundry than nearly any other sport, making it a true lifelong sport.
