2.) The Swimming Pools

I featured the YMCA in my favorite places to swim in NYC post and my opinion of them still stands. The first time I swam laps at one of the YMCA in NYC I almost cried tears of joy. Most pools at NYC gyms have pretty short lanes, which makes it hard to build endurance with your laps. But the YMCA pools are very long, spacious and clean. The YMCA also offers adult swimming lessons and I’ve even seen people scuba diving in the deep end!

    Miss CeCe,
    I beat you to this one… Ive been a Y member for over a year now. I love it…. They have the machines I love to use, a variety of activities and the gorgeous men getting their fit on, OMG!!!! Its like a smorgasbord of visual energy….. I find myself having to re-focus. Often!
    But, I love it and would recommend it to anyone. This coming from a girl who considered exercise something you put on the ‘things you have to do but absolutely do not want to’ list.

    I joined my local Y this year…mostly because it is close to my apartment and, hello, an indoor AND outdoor pool! It was also affordable (though honestly is higher than one would expect for a Y) and I love how laid back it is. It’s a lot of older people and people who are just there to keep healthy and exercise, not be the buffest person on the block. Now, maybe I should actually GO more!!!!
