If you belong to a health club that has an outdoor pool, you are in luck! Not only can you take advantage of the club’s fitness center to get a great workout in, but you can also spend time relaxing by the pool. Here are some tips for how to make the most of your club’s amenities as a local summer getaway.

Local Summer Getaway

Here is a an example of how you can make the most of your visit to your health club on a warm summer day!

Drop the Kids Off in the Playroom

If you have kids and want some “me time,” drop them off in your health club’s childcare/playroom. This is a great service that allows you to focus on your personal health goals without having to worry about the kids. You can be at ease knowing your kids are being looked after by trained and passionate caregivers.

Apart from the childcare service, see if your club has summer programming for kids. This might be summer camp, swimming parties, outdoor games, etc. For all family-friendly programs at Elite Sports Clubs, check out our Monthly Family Calendar!

Start Off with a Workout

Begin your “getaway” by hitting the fitness center for a workout. This will help you feel energized and ready to take on the day, or help you de-stress if you’re coming after a long work day. You can choose from a variety of workouts such as weight lifting, cardio, or group fitness classes offered by your club. Remember to hydrate properly before and during your workout.

Take a Dip in the Pool

After your workout, head over to the outdoor pool to cool off and unwind. Swimming is a great way to relax and soothe your muscles after a workout. You can also do some pool exercises to stretch and strengthen your muscles. Swimming is also a great full-body workout, so lap swimming can just as easily be a continuation of your workout from the fitness center if you have the energy for it!

Grab a Snack

Some health clubs offer food and beverage services either inside the club or out by the pool. It’s important to refuel after a long workout to give your muscles the nutrients they need to recover.

Get Lost in a Book or Music

If you enjoy reading, bring a book or magazine to read by the pool. This is a great way to relax and unwind while still getting some sun and fresh air. If reading isn’t your thing, throw on your earbuds and get lost in your favorite tunes!

Use Sunscreen

You don’t want to get sunburned during your local summer getaway. Make sure to protect your skin from the sun by applying sunscreen before you head to the pool. Reapply it throughout the day as needed, especially after swimming.

Stay Hydrated

Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated, especially if you plan to spend a lot of time outside. Bring a water bottle with you and refill it as needed.

Have Fun!

Finally, remember to have fun! The outdoor pool is a great way to relax and enjoy some time in the sun. Take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy some outdoors time in the warmth, which is all too precious and limited in the midwest.

A health club with an outdoor pool and fitness center provides a unique opportunity to work out and relax in the same location. By following these tips, you can take full advantage of your club’s amenities and enjoy a fun and healthy summer season.
