WHY swimming is GOOD for YOU ?

 

  • Swimmers have been shown to experience significantly less tension, depression and anger after exercising than before

 

  • Swimming can support up to 90% of the body’s weight in the water, meaning that those with disabilities, injuries or illnesses such as arthritis can take part in a comfortable and safe environment

 

  • Taking part in physical activity such as swimming can prevent diseases and conditions that cause loss of function in later life.

 

  • Different swimming strokes challenge different muscles within the body so you can choose where you tone up. It also means you gain a full body workout.

 

 

  • Because water is about 800 times denser than air, you can work harder, and burn more calories, in a pool than out of it

 

  • The support of the water for arthritis sufferers allows less painful movements in affected joints as well as toning up the supporting muscles. Swimming can also reduce the risk of arthritis by helping to retain normal muscle strength and joint structure.

     

  • The pressure of water causes a shift of blood volume from the periphery of the body to the thorax. This increases venal pressure and so leads to a decrease in heart rate of up to 20bpm lower in water than on land. The same intensity of exercise at a lower heart rate. Only in the pool!
