The USMS Fitness Committee produces many different types of articles about swimming, health, and fitness, with topics ranging from swimming technique to nutrition. During the last year, we have established a new feature called Fitness Article of the Month, and we showcase a new article each month on the USMS Web Site. At the end of each month, each article becomes part of the permanent archive.

This month's article about stress management is by Jennifer Parks, member of the USMS Fitness Committee. Parks teaches health, wellness, fitness, aquatics, and stress management courses at Ferris State University in Michigan. She was the swim coach at Michigan State in the 70s and 80s, and has been swimming Masters for almost 30 USA
