Swimming is highly regarded as one of the best all-round physical activities as it works all of the body's major muscles and helps to improve stamina. It is a great exercise for anyone with joint problems or for those overweight as the water gives buoyancy. It’s also good for rehab following an injury as there is no impact on the joints.
Top 5 benefits:
1. Swimming is the best fitness alternative to common workout routines such as running, walking and jumping. Swimming not only maintains the same level of heart rate but also keeps the stress impact off your body.
3. Performing swimming regularly can help build endurance, cardio fitness and muscle strength.
4. Swimming can help to tone your body as a large number of calories are burned with each workout session.
5. Swimming is a great way to warm up your muscles in the morning which can help you feel refreshed and ready to tackle a new day. Swimming is also a great way to soothe aching muscles helping you to feel calm and relaxed.
