Diplomat is the perfect place to get my workout accomplished.  As a swimmer who has represented the United States at the national and international level competitively, I have always found the Diplomat pool to be one of the most outstanding pools.  I count on being able to get my work out laps in without interference of other swimmers and not being pressured by others to finish up before my workout is complete.  I find the Diplomat to have a comfortable atmosphere, it is exceptionally clean and the staff is professional, courteous and most of all, they listen to their members’ needs. ~Tracy Spalding Pennea, Blauvelt

Since joining the Diplomat over a year ago it has made daily exercising a pleasure and not a chore!  Bruce Woolley and his staff over extend themselves not only to make everyone feel so upbeat at the Club  but also go above and beyond to keep the Club well maintained and sparkling clean.  I continue to recommend the Club to my friends and family. ~Joe Di Bernardo, Old Tappan

I was feeling ragged, frumpy, and drained. I didn't think I could muster the time or the energy to get in shape, but I knew that there would be bigger consequences if I didn't. I had a few excuses to delay the start (kids, old bones, and injuries). When I finally made the effort to get myself in gear I realized how much more energy I had to deal with my hectic schedules. Now I feel drained if I don't make it to the club! Thank you from I happy, healthier customer ~ AO, Nyack, NY
