Lap Swimming in the Quad Cities: Where do I sign up?
As someone who is involved in a variety of different sports, and physical fitness activities, I typically find myself either running outside, lifting weights at the gym, or something else land based. When I was having a conversation with some individuals I work with, recently, one of the favorite activities that “they used to do” was mentioned as swimming. I thought to myself, “wow” that’s a lot of people who enjoyed swimming at one point in their life. What changed? One of the things that I have come to realize is that having knowledge and access to appropriate physical activity mediums is one of the biggest barriers in participating in physical activity. If someone doesn’t know not only if there is a gym or fitness center near, and what they have, the chances of them following a health promoting behavior is slim to none. Because of this, I decided to do a little digging on some of the indoor swimming pools in the Quad Cities, that can be used for lap swimming to keep fit! The good news is that there are a few options. The bad news is that it’s a little “monopolized.” You’ll see what I mean in a second.
