Three great ways to get healthy in your swimming pool

  1. Swimming is an exercise that is within reach for even those who may have physical challenges. Arthritis, muscle and joint issues and others may benefit from time spent in the swimming pool. As mentioned earlier, swimming is a way for those with back pain, arthritis and other ailments to get some exercise — which will help loosen tight muscles — get in shape without pain.
  2. If you want a full body workout — swimming will give you that. You get to work all your muscle groups, your heart and lungs benefit and it enhances coordination. The resistance of the water when you move through it, while also being buoyant because of it — leads to a long, lean toned body!
  3. Swimming is a great way to maintain a healthy weight AND to get to an ideal weight. Swimming is an exercise that is a great way to ease back into an active lifestyle after a period of inactivity. Swimming helps you lose weight while boosting metabolism. It is a gentle exercise and one you will stick with because it doesn’t even feel like you’re exercising — like if you were jogging!
