Where can you swim
Swimming is a healthy, low cost activity that you can continue throughout your life. The low impact water activities have a big impact on your health. Swimming is one of the few activities that truly offers such an extensive range of benefits. The rapidly growing trend with cardiovascular and weight diseases has seen many doctors telling their patients to get in the pool. Swimmers reap the benefits of a cardio and muscular workout while reducing impact that bones and joints often experience with traditional fitness opportunities. The most common barrier for those new to swimming is knowing how to swim. Swimming in deep water can often be a scary thought for new swimmers, but it is important to remember that your swim workout can be just as effective in shallow water where you can touch the ground. Most pools offer a range of learn to swim classes for children to seniors.
