Top Ten Lap Pools in North America

When I am checking out a hotel for my next trip, I always look for info on the fitness facilities, for obvious reasons. Nothing is more annoying than having the hotel's write-up say "lap pool", when in fact it's a hole in the ground not fit for ducks. This is why I was totally excited to see that AthleticMindedTraveler.com agrees and decided to figure out the best hotel lap pools in America.

  1. Dolphin Resort (Orlando)
  2. Cheyenne Mountain Resort (Colorado Springs)
  3. Lodge at Ventana Canyon (Tucson)
  4. Houstonian (Houston)
  5. Inn at Ponte Vedra Beach (Florida)
  6. Renaissance ClubSport Walnut Creek (CA)
  7. Cooper Guest Lodge (Dallas)
  8. Sanctuary (Scottsdale)
  9. Peninsula (Chicago)
  10. Terminal City Club (Vancouver, B.C.)

Now, you can stick to that swimming program you so dearly love, even when on the road. You may even want to think about bringing your Lap Track with you.

Hey andaman - I'm glad you tried it out but I'm so sorry your back is hurting! :( If you do try the kicking exercise again - try and use your hips mostly when doing dolphin kick (I always think about a mermaid when I think of this kick.) You want to keep your upper body still and use your hips to help guide your kicking. And then you'll really feel it in your abs! Butterfly was actually my main stroke when I swam competitively and I do agree - it takes a lot of energy to do! ;)

I did try the kick you told me about today. My back is hurting. I think I've done something wrong. I think butterfly takes enormous amount of enery too. Thanks for the info SU3.

andaman: Pull buoys are used for upper body workouts. The buoy is placed between your thighs and is used to support the body (keeping your lower body afloat) as you only use your arms for swimming. You don't kick - some people even cross their ankles to help prevent them from kicking as well. There are two types: Here is one from Speedo Hope this helps! :)
