Manhattan has synchronized swimming classes. Not only that, they are actually affordable. One does not have to be a wannabe athlete to make it happen. At the Manhattan Plaza Health Club, lessons are just over $15!
So not only does one not have to be rich to join, they also do not have to be overly-talented. The classes house everyone – from beginner to advanced – and then split up into skill level.
Those who take the classes generally report them to be a lot of fun, and something that can be built up over time. There are many basic attributes to it, and one needs to have a lot of them under their belt as it were, to be able to really participate in the sport.
In addition, synchronized swimming is great for the body, being both an aerobic and anaerobic activity.
