Find your neighborhood swimming pool or contact a local pool design and construction company to build your very own. Swimming is a great way to help you meet your 2019 fitness goals.
1. Swimming Helps Your Heart
When you think of cardiovascular workouts, you may think of running, cycling, or Zumba. But if you are like me, you may get tired of the same routine. Why not incorporate swimming into a regular exercise routine? You can improve your endurance as well as burn body fat. Swimming in water that is cool, your body also has to work to warm itself up. So, you are actually working your body twice as hard with the same effort.
2. Swimming Helps Your Flexibility
If you run, lift weights, or do any exercise that builds lactic acid, swimming in a heated pool will help to remove toxins and help with muscle tightness. If you alternate swimming with these types of activities, you won’t have muscle soreness and can work out harder the next day. Swimming also helps develop long, lean muscles, so not only does it complement weight lifting, but it will boost your metabolism.
3. Swimming Helps Develop All Muscles
Swimming develops your upper body muscles because a majority of the time you are using your arms. However, because kicking and turning use lower body muscles you will develop your core body strength as well. You can see why many choose to add a swimming pool to your backyard.
4. Swimming Helps with Weight Loss
First of all, the thought of getting in a swimsuit in public is usually enough of a motivator to start most people on a routine to lose weight and get in shape. You can push yourself to work out longer when you swim than almost any other activity and therefore burn more calories.
