Swimming at the USC

Besides being a competition sport, for many people swimming is an ideal way to work on staying active and improving their health in a relaxing way. With your sport subscription you can swim for free at certain times in several swimming pools in The Hague. Stiff muscles function far better under water and less strain is placed on joints. In addition to burning considerably more calories when exercising in water, it also improves your stamina, suppleness, heart and lungs. Swimming is therefore a welcome and relaxing change to your weekly workout schedule. Combine fitness, swimming and group classes and stay in balance!

Swimmers such as Michael Phelps always make an impression with their muscular and athletic physique. As well as fitness, strength plays an important role when competing at the top. That is the reason that many top swimmers spend hours in the gym working on their starting speed, explosive strength and stamina in addition to hours spent in the pool. Train daily swimming for free, or join in with the sessions at the Aquamania student organisation in Leiden. For a training routine focused on improving your swimming fitness, come to the gym.


Swimming uses practically every muscle in the body. Good strength training on dry land should be focused on improving the stamina and strength in arms and legs. Strong abdominal and back muscles are also important. For preference, use flexible cords or elastics. Using dumbbells, you can also practise the various swimming techniques. Customise your training to fit your swimming goals and the number of laps you swim during a competition. Ask our fitness instructors for a fitness schedule to fit your needs.


If you would like to start swimming in a fun and responsible way, come to Aquamania for 2 swimming sessions per week.  You will work on your fitness and swimming technique under the guidance of an instructor.  All levels are catered for - from recreational school swimmer or someone starting water polo to butterfly stroke expert or polo beast (M/F).  Work on fitness, a powerful body and a healthy mind through play.  Want to take part in a student competition?  Such fun!  Join in a free trial session.
