Swimming is recognised as one of the best forms of exercise
for all because it is a low impact, high results fun activity that, once you know the basics, anyone can do and enjoy, from babies to grandparents.
If you’ve never exercised before swimming is a great place to start. It is great for joint mobility, strengthening muscles and creating the feel good factor. Swimming regularly can help you tone up, improve your flexibility and strengthen your heart and lungs. It’s also a fantastic exercise to support weight loss – training at a medium intensity for 30 minutes can burn up to 200 calories. You can do it all year round, on your own or with friends, at a time of day to suit your lifestyle.
Leisure swimming is also a great activity for the whole family to have a splashing time!
