SWIMMER Magazine

SWIMMER is our premier bimonthly print publication. Our members tell us that their subscription to SWIMMER is one of their favorite benefits of USMS membership. Each issue is packed with interesting profiles, physiology articles, technique features, history, product reviews, health and nutrition information, and much, much more. With award-winning writers, guest editorials, and now a digital version with multimedia content, we think SWIMMER will quickly become your must-read-cover-to-cover publication.
