It's nearly the middle of January already, the heart of the winter and often the coldest month of the year. Spending time in the water is one of my favorite summer pastimes, and is a great source of physical activity its sorely missed once the outdoor pools close down for the year. I've found some great and reliable locations within the tristate area to take some indoor swim lessons, to both enjoy the water and to prep for summer. Being able to swim at a comfortable level is so important when you spend any amount of time near the water.
