Newsletter | April 2021
Happy Spring!
Looking back on the April newsletter from 2020, our heading image was the word 'April' in the foreground of a living room graphic. How much different does this Spring look to all? Instead of the walls of our living room, we can start to see the walls of familiar businesses and homes.

Spring is the time for new life and bountiful growth. As RAC celebrates 43 years in business this April we are thankful for the growth still ahead and the new opportunities for the club and all our members! We are excited to share some big announcements this month.

A note from RAC Swim Coach Steve to all RAC Swimmers...
Hello fellow swimmers or future fellow swimmers!  

Those of you that already swim do not have to be told of the wonderful benefits gained by swimming on a regular basis. Those that have not yet begun, let me tell you about this great sport/ exercise. It is low impact on joints. It can be a great cardiovascular workout. Swimming is also great for weight loss or maintenance. For both new and veteran swimmers, think about what you want to achieve by swimming. If your goal is to maintain then the biggest hurdle is to make sure you show up to swim. If you are looking to lose weight or improve your ability, you must provide yourself with variety. If you get in a rut and continue to do the same workout or set of workouts, you may maintain but you will not see change. One of my favorite track and field coaches would say, “If you want change to occur, you must MAKE change occur.” Your body will usually adapt to workouts within a matter of 2-4 weeks. So, if you are not changing your workout distance, intensity, and stroke styles regularly, you will not see change in your cardio, weight loss and time improvements. If you do not want to create your own swim workouts, simply do a search online for “swim workouts” and you can find quite a few premade workouts for free. Another option is to sign up for a swim app. I have been using “MySwimPro” app. 

I know I am a little late for Women’s History month, but it is never too late to celebrate exceptional women swimmers who have helped to push this great sport forward. Here is a link to a video that does just that. 

I hope to see you in the lanes!
Swim Coach, Steve Minnich
