Looking to get in shape? Before you choose a pool shape to swim laps in, keep in mind that an Olympic size pool will run about 164 feet (though if you don't have that much yard to play with a minimal of 24 to 42ft. will do for regular laps).
*If you normally work out in an Olympic size pool stay alert when swimming laps in a smaller surrounding (keep in mind that you will hit the wall early).
