The Cambridge Masters Swim Club trains at Harvard University and provides an enthusiastic training environment with mentally and physically stimulating workouts to a diverse group of athletes.

Workouts are relatively short (60-90 minutes) and time is set aside for warm up and warm down. Variety is a huge component of the daily, weekly and monthly training plan. Workouts are designed to mix various speeds, strokes and repeat distances while providing the proper conditioning for all of its athletes regardless of their competitive swimming background or focus (learning to swim, improving overall fitness, triathlons, open water swimming events, sprint and distance).
