BENEFITS OF A SWIMMING POOL


Low-Impact Exercise

Swimming is one of the best low-impact exercises in which you are able to get a high-quality cardiovascular workout while minimising stress on your joints. Cardiovascular exercise gets your heart rate up, and your lungs get a workout. It's the type of exercise that burns the most calories and should be carried out for at least 30 minutes several times a week for maximum benefits to your heart, lungs and circulation.  Additionally, low-impact exercises are a comfortable way for pregnant and overweight individuals to get a workout.

A Place for Healthy Family Fun and Socializing

A swimming pool is a delightful place to spend time, where people of all ages can enjoy time together or simply splashing and playing. Your family and friends can be invited over to enjoy a gathering oriented around activity rather than just eating food!  In this way, swimming can help you achieve your fitness goals without sacrificing your social life.


Convenience, Convenience, Convenience

A swimming pool is a place in which you can get many different kinds of workouts all in one place. As an alternative to joining a gym, using your swimming pool can allow you to work on your glutes by kicking; your endurance by swimming laps without breaking; your arm strength by pulling; or placing a buoy between your legs and only swimming with your arms. The convenience of swimming, of course, is amplified if you have your own pool. Otherwise, traveling to a nearby pool might not be overly convenient, depending on your location.
