LVM Workouts are Training for Competition in Swim Meets

We are a Masters club in training for SPMS Regional pool championship meets, USMS National pool championship meets, and FINA Masters World championship meets. We have several talented open water swimmers and triathletes in the lanes with us every day, but we all follow the same plan for pool meet competition as designed by our coaches Victor Hecker and Jim Reitz. We get strong, then we get fast, then we taper, then we compete ... repeat.

If you have been "out of the water" for a while, a decade, or even a few decades, don't stay away any longer. If you have knowledge of the 4 competition strokes, come talk to Coach Vic or Coach Jim on deck one day. Ask them if you'll fit in with our fabulous group. You'll be glad you did.

We work hard with LVM.  We get trim and muscular with LVM.  We get fast with LVM!

... and best of all We are a Swim Family!
