SmartyPants Vitamins USMS Winter Fitness Challenge

The SmartyPants Vitamins USMS Fitness Series starts with the Winter Fitness Challenge, which runs from Feb. 15-28, and is perfect for anyone who's setting a New Year's resolution of getting into better shape. The event is a 30-minute swim, done in any manner desired.

If you're just getting into swimming, or back to it after a long time away from the pool, swimming for 30 minutes is a solid fitness goal. We provide a six-week training plan for three different ability levels, for swimmers to train on their own or with their local USMS club.

You’ll have fun training for and completing the Challenge with your club, getting motivation from each other and your coach. If you swim on your own, you can still join a group for the Challenge! The USMS programs listed below will be participating and hosting an official Winter Fitness Challenge at their pool. 

Talk to your coach or club contact about hosting a Winter Fitness Challenge at your pool. Bring your club or workout group together for an inclusive and fun challenge!

The Fitness Series is a great way to bring your club or workout group together for three inclusive and fun challenges: a 30-minute swim in the winter, a 2K swim in the summer, and a 1-mile swim in the fall.

We look forward to hosting this event.
