Love it here, swimming and Classes 9/20/2010

Love the pool, temperature always great - enjoy swimming laps in such a clean space with other swimmers! I also really enjoy the swymfit classes - great staff both front office and swymfit instructors. Steve Victorson very knowledgeable. Have met very nice people in the classes. A great way to start the day! Looking forward to trying some land classes but having too much fun in the water! more

Pool nice, program was just OK 9/20/2010

Nice Swymfit pool and updated facilities, professional staff - Didn't quite work for me - Asked to cancel membership, didn't realize was 30 day notice, Steve Victorson was professional and fair and understood program was not for me - felt very heard and supported, canceled my membership. Regarding the work out - tried a class - was a good workout, I am not a swimmer and so this didn't seem to work for me but would recommend to others. - other family members enjoy their swimming and fitness workouts at Swymfit! more

Swymfit has been a great find! 9/12/2010

My son is a senior at Acton Boxboro High School and has been involved in Swymfit's Burdenko, water conditoning/therapy program with Taylor Kruse. Taylor is a terrific coach, challenging him with a variety of water workouts to address his muscle tightness, leg injury and overall strength and conditioning. He has been great at motivating my son to improve through his sessions but also to practice on his own at the pool. My son frequently comments on the improvements he is feeling as a result of this type of workout. Both Taylor and Steve Victorson, the owner, have been very professional and have taken a genuine interest in my son. In addition to a nice pool, Swymfit has a well equipped exercise room. My son benefits from a land workout followed by the water conditioning. more

Swymfit's Burdenko Water Therapy A Great Find! 9/8/2010

Swymfit is one of the few metro west boston pools offering the low impact water therapy and fitness program called the "Burdenko" Method. The aqua fitness program was perfect for my son in helping him re-build strength and flexibility and reduce pain and swelling signficantly post knee surgery (we were able to discontinue the icepacks after a few short weeks of therapy... yeahh!!). Steve Victorson, Swymfit owner and sports trainer, was very competent and patient working with my son using specialized weight belts and flotation devices. After a few water therapy sessions, he was able to continue practicing the water workouts and strength training exercises during Swyfit open pool hours, sometimes alternating with gym workouts. Swyfit water therapy was highly recommended to us by good friends in Acton. We agree that it provided a safe low impact alternative to traditional PT. What a find - just wanted to share with others... more

Outdated facility + unprofessional staff 9/22/2009

I was delivered a convincing sales speech for the swim lessons program and I bought into it. It is nothing more than a joke. The teacher, who was advertised as the most "requested and experienced" has flat affect, unable to engage children and basically projects the sense that since she is pretty much unexcited about her work, she doesn't even pretend to make an effort. The management is unresponsive with no sense of customer service standards. Bottom line, after they get your money, you're on your own, no one cares. Forget about any refunds you're on the hook. Very unprofessional. more

Swymfit/Harvard Ridge Fitness Center 11/7/2006

The Harvard Ridge Pool Club, now called Swymfit has been totally upgraded. The exercise room has the latest equipment and the indoor pool has a new roof and HVAC system. In addition to a very strong swimming lesson program, Swymfit also has the very latest in water based, non-impact exercise programs. Swymfit makes use of the Burdenko Method and the expertise of Dr. Steven Victorson to help you get into shape. I find the environment relaxed and inviting and I really enjoy the innovative water exercise programs. more

Good swimming pool.. 8/13/2005

Great place for heated indoor swimming on Swanson Road very close to Boxborough exit on route 495. They have also a small gym but most of the equipment is a bit outdated. But can't beat burning few calories in physical center followed by swimming in the pool. They have regular swimming classes for adults and kids and the prices are reasonable. more
