The swimming pool provides a great environment for warming up or cooling down after a gym workout but is also a very effective exercise in its own right. The water provides additional resistance for your muscle groups to work against and supports some of your body weight reducing the strain on your joints.
a gentle swim can burn over 200 kcal in half an hour and regular weekly swimming can lead to improved sleep patterns & lower stress levels.
swimming for fitness is a great way to tone up your body or control your weight as part of a healthy balanced lifestyle. A fast front crawl can burn as many calories as an 8mph run!
