Check out this article featuring Elite Sports Clubs member, Julie Anderson for a little indoor season swimming inspiration. Her story about her quick rise to competing at worlds in masters swimming is all the motivation we need to get into the pool this winter!

Over thirty years ago Julie Anderson was a high school state swimmer and an All American collegiate swimmer on a national championship team.

Shred-HIIT Group Training Program Review

As an Elite Sports Clubs member enthusiast and Member Ambassador, I am making my job a little more fun, and your job of finding that perfect workout a whole lot easier!  This fall, I am taking it upon myself to test the latest and greatest of Elite’s various training programs and group exercise classes, and then report back to you my experience.  Here’s the cool part;  I’m in ok shape, but I’ve got a ways to go.  I’m not a trainer, I’m not a fitness fanatic, and I even eat Oreos from time to time.  So, I’m one of you!  If I think a class is hard, I’ll tell you.  If I wore the wrong thing, I’ll tell you what not to wear and what to wear instead.
