Why Should I Swim????         It is now firmly established that anyone wanting a healthy lifestyle should take part in some form of regular physical activity. The type & level of this activity must take into account the age, general fitness and medical condition of the individual. One form of exercise which might be appropriate to one person in an age-group may be quite inappropriate for another of the same age. Not least among the benefits of swimming is the development and maintenance of good health for everyone, regardless of age, type & physical condition, including those with a special need. The following are some of the benefits of swimming:-

  • Improvements in the condition of the heart and cardiovascular system in general.
  • Increased physical capacity.
  • Improvement in the control of the individual's body composition by helping to burn up some of the fat stores.
  • Contributes to helping control stress.
  • The promotion of a feeling of physical well being.
  • A long term reduction in the risk of developing coronary heart disease.

Some of the reasons why swimming is beneficial:-

  • The body is supported by the up thrust of the water.
  • The push and pull forces created by the muscles are directed against the water rather than a solid medium, thereby, reducing the risk of injury to ligaments & joints.

Regular exercise benefits the Strength, Stamina & Suppleness of the body. Individuals should be mindful of the appropriate amount & quality of rest in between workouts.A balanced diet is important to everyone whether they take part in sporting activity or not. A good balanced diet would contain a % of carbohydrate, protein and fat.
