Swimming is a fun and healthy activity for both kids and adults. Besides providing a less strenuous way to tone the body, it’s great for strengthening the most important muscle we have, the heart. Swimming is an aerobic exercise that can help your heart pump more efficiently, which helps create a healthier blood flow throughout the body and lowers blood pressure. Studies have shown that just 30 minutes of exercise, like swimming, a day can reduce the chances of coronary heart disease in women by as much as 30-40 percent!
It doesn’t have to be summer for you to enjoy the benefits of a pool. Look for gyms that have indoor pools and go have some healthy fun!
