The top 8 benefits of swimming

  • A wonder for general wellbeing for you and your family. Your health should be your priority! At all levels, one of the best ways to remain healthy and fit and maintain a positive mental outlook is to swim just 30 minutes three times a week alongside a balanced, healthy diet and lifestyle.
  • The best way to protect against diabetes, heart disease, and stroke is to swim 30 minutes a week. Swimming is also an excellent form of cardiovascular exercise.
  • Exercise that works the entire body. Every muscle in the body is used when swimming. It doesn’t matter if you swim a gentle breaststroke or a hammer butterfly, your entire body will be worked. A 30-minute swim is equivalent to 45 minutes of the same exercise on land since exercising in water makes your body work harder.
  • Defuses stress and promotes relaxation. We all get times when we just want to scream, whether it is because of work stress or because our kids are being a nightmare. You’re in luck. Stress levels can be reduced, depression can be reduced, and sleep patterns can be improved by swimming regularly. Even a light swim can provide mental benefits
  • Helps to maintain a healthy body. It is estimated that 90 percent of a person’s weight is supported by water. The body is well balanced while you are floating in water, thereby reducing pressure on muscles and joints if you have an injury or illness. Swimming is a great way to stay active even if you have an injury or illness.
  • Looking to shed those calories? There is no doubt that swimming burns calories effectively. Compared to walking, swimming burns over 200 calories in just half an hour.
  • You will feel more energetic. Lack of energy is often the result of inactivity, not aging. You can increase your metabolism by just 30 minutes of swimming three times a week.
  • Sweat-free exercise. Exercise doesn’t have to be sweaty if sweating puts you off! Swimming keeps you cool constantly, so no matter how hard you work, you won’t feel sweaty.
