Swim for Your Health
Swimming is an effective cardiovascular exercise. Whether you are at the beginning of your wellness and weight loss journey or you just want to stay in shape, getting into the pool or ocean is a great idea. Once you start swimming, your strength and endurance will quickly improve. Also, because swimming is a low impact exercise and is non-weight bearing, it is extremely beneficial for healing from an injury or simply being able to exercise with little or no pain to your joints. Perhaps best of all, swimming is an exercise that provides a total body workout.
Fast and Effective
According to the American Heart Association, swimming from 30 to 60 minutes, four to six days a week can help you lose weight and reduce serious health risks including stroke, diabetes and heart disease. Remember how much fun you had enjoying the water in your younger years? Well, the water is calling you back. Swimming outside also adds the benefit of being out in natural light and giving you the chance to soak up some vitamin D.
Swimming is also a great way to rebound after cardiovascular problems. As a low-impact exercise, it is particularly helpful for individuals who suffer with health problems, because it does not additional stress on knees, hips or back, unlike running and biking.
As an added benefit, swimming can help you lose weight and maintain a healthy weight if done consistently. In addition to working all of your major muscle groups, it also helps strengthen your heart and lungs.
