I love to travel and see new places. I also love to swim in new places. But during the winter months, that can be a rather cold pursuit. So, when I am in New York during the winter, indoor swimming is where it’s at. Here is my list of the Top 4 New York gyms with the best swimming pools:
New York Health & Racquet ClubNew York Health & Racquet Club is one of New York City’s premier gyms. With locations all around the city, it is easy to find a place to work out. More importantly, they offer a wonderful experience swimming in a saltwater pool. No harsh smell of chlorine here! Just smooth water and a great lap swim.
The Sports Center at Chelsea PiersChelsea Piers has a huge Olympic-sized pool and an adjacent oversize whirlpool. With wonderful facilities and a beautiful views of the Hudson River, this is a must stop for any swimmer looking for a place to go.
At Complete Body it is all about the view. It is located in the middle of town and is surrounded by a wonderful skyline in all directions. You’ll want to do the backstroke the whole time in their saltwater lap pool because it’s open to the air and the sites. When your swim is done, don’t forget to lounge on the roof top deck.

Manhattan Plaza Health Clubthis is the place. With a 75 foot pool and plenty of lanes, you can always find your groove. This facility also includes a retractable roof for those beautiful days. You’ll feel like you’re lounging on the side of an awesome beach at this great pool.
One Last Thought
Finding a great place to swim in a new city can be hard. So, I hope the next time you’re in New York you will already know where to go.
As always, no matter where you go, make sure you take your Underwater Audio Waterproof iPod Shuffle with you, because the best way to keep your workout going is by rocking out to some tunes.
With Underwater Audio, you can take the soundtrack of your life wherever that life takes you.
