Swim & fit program underway the speaking of WVU Head Gale Catlett on Monday at the The Gilmer County Chapter of the American Red Cross, in cooperation with the County Recreation Center Pool, announ< es that a Swim & Stay Fit Program will begin the week of July 25th at the new Gilmer County Recreation Center Pool. Manager Kent Kennedy has given his ap- proval to begin the free pro- gram and one lane of the new pool will be closed off from 4-6 P.M., Monday through Friday, for all swimmers who wish to- participate. All interested per- sons are encouraged to take part in this free activity. Dr. John Hymes, Gilmer County Red Cross Water Safe- ty Director, adds that swimm- ing is one of the best forms of exercise for individuals of all ages. Unlike other sport ac- tivities, swimming causes no muscle pulls or bruises, and every muscle of the body gets a gentle workout. t Q ip Fqirground Rcl. 462-5689 Inc. or 269-4785 or 269-5877 Pool personnel will have in- formation sheets available on how to plan a beginning swim program and how to officially "log swimming mileage." Hymes notes that it is wise to start one's swimming with short distances and then very gradually build up. In either case, short or long distances, any swimming is a good, healthful exercise. At the end of the swim season, the American Red Cross will award Swim and Stay Fit Certificates to all eligi- ble persons who have swam a total of one or more miles. , ...........
