Offers A Full Body Workout

When you swim you work every muscle in your body so whether you favour the front stroke or the butterfly, you can be assured of a full body workout. Being in the water also requires your body to work harder, making it a fantastic choice for raising your heart rate and burning off unwanted calories. 

Improves Mental Health

Exercise is vital for our mental health and wellbeing. The relaxing and calming benefits of being in the water make swimming an excellent way to release endorphins, reduce stress and anxiety and improve your overall mood.

Provides Low Impact Exercise For All Ages

As we get older, we find that certain forms of exercise may no longer suit us. Water however, naturally supports the body by providing gentle resistance. This makes swimming a great low impact exercise for all ages, as well as those coming back from an injury or those that find high impact exercise challenging.

Supports You During Pregnancy

Swimming is one of the activities proven safe in pregnancy. Exercising in water takes the pressure off your weight bearing joints, which can be especially helpful for expecting mothers. It also offers a low impact form of exercise in a supportive environment at a time when other forms of exercise may no longer be suitable for you and your growing baby. Swimming has been proven to improve your circulation and boost your oxygen levels, making it a favourable form of exercise for all three trimesters.

Builds Muscle Mass And Endurance

Swimming can be one of the best types of physical training to build strength and tone your muscles. Choose from a variety of swimming strokes such as the butterfly, breaststroke, sidestroke and even freestyle to build total body muscle mass and endurance. 

Teaches A Lifesaving Skill

Swimming provides an essential lifesaving skill that can be utilised throughout life. For kids, using different breathing techniques and learning to master the different swimming strokes, builds self-esteem and a sense of comfort and security in the water, as well as arming them with a skill for life.
