Joe Jones in Wheaton College

Joe Jones originally from Chicago, currently resides in Tucker, Georgia. An avid 55-year-old swimmer, Jones started his swimming journey at the age 13 with the Ridge Park Swimming Club in Chicago.

After high school, Jones attended Wheaton College, swimming his first two years and earning Division III All-American honors. After college he took some time off, but at 28 he decided to jump back into the pool. At that time he renewed his love for the sport. "I knew that I would do it for the rest of my life."

Jones uses the FINIS Swimsense® to workout 2-3 times per week when his typical workout consists of a 1,000 freestyle, 500 breaststroke, 500 backstroke, and a 200 warm down. . It is as a “godsend” due to the meditative state that longer swims seems to put him in. "I no longer have to keep count or wonder ‘Was that 800 or did I sleep a 50?’ The Swimsense® has motivated me to swim more. I love to run home, hook it up to my PC and check my graphs. I also really love the new ‘auto interval’ feature."
