Swimming And Your Health

Swimming Benefits

I know for me and one who suffers from arthritic pain, getting into the pool and getting my joints moving definitely improves my overall flexibility. It also reduces pain in my muscles and joints as the graph above outlines.

I also enjoy deep water exercising, which gets the ❤ heart rate up without putting any strain on my joints, compared to that of 🏃 high impact exercising.

Quote from Better Health Channel

Swimming is a good all-round activity because it: keeps your heart rate up but takes some of the impact stress off your body. Build’s endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness. Helps maintain a healthy weight, healthy heart and lungs.

I’m pleasantly surprised to see that with just 30 minutes of swimming on a regular basis, can help reduce your risk of contracting heart disease by as much as; 40%. 😲 I certainly believe this is the case for any form of exercise, compared to that of living a 🛋 sedentary lifestyle.

We need to get up off that 🛋 couch and get moving!

My wife and I own a 🐕 dog, and one of the great benefits of having a pet is that they need walking. This encourages you to get out each day for that walk. Not only good for you, but for your 4 legged companion as well!

Swimming Lowers Risk Of Diabetes

Yes and with most any form of exercise, you can definitely reduce your risk of developing diabetes. It’s proven that diabetes is a preventable disease, with proper exercise and a balanced diet.

Just another great reason to get in the pool and swim, or join an exercise class appropriate for your age group. You don’t have to be a great swimmer to enjoy the benefits of swimming. I see many people in the pool doing exercises like myself, from water walking to light aerobic exercising.

Anything you like, just get in the pool, move around and your body will love you for it!

Swimming Burns Those Calories Away
