If you could get in shape and have your workout not feel like a workout, would you do it? The swimming pool contractors from Advanced Pools in Memphis, TN explain that swimming pool exercise is fun and doesn’t feel like exercise. When you and your family and friends are frolicking in the pool and playing games or swimming laps or just jumping up and down and jumping around with pool noodles, you are burning calories and could be losing weight all while having fun!
Swimming is a wonderful exercise because it’s low impact and provides a great cardio workout. Pool exercise provides a myriad of benefits and even if you’re overweight or are going from couch potato to working out, swimming is the greatest way to do just that without risk of injury.
When you swim, there is no jarring impact on your joints and it’s easy to ease into working out from having lived a sedentary lifestyle.
Swimming pool exercise is fun whether you’re swimming laps, taking a water aerobics class, diving for sunken objects or just kicking from end to end using a board or raft. If you want to help your heart and start a low-impact workout, your doctor will probably appreciate and endorse this type of workout.
Swimming pool exercise is fun
Regular exercise in a swimming pool builds endurance, muscle strength and heart health. Swimming can also be used as an in-between workout for those workout pros who are running, jogging, biking or lifting weights. Swimming is a great way to break up those workouts.
Swimming burns calories at around three calories per mile per pound of your body weight. This means, if you weigh 150 pounds, and it takes you half an hour to swim a mile, you can burn close to 1,000 calories in an hour.
Swimming pool exercise is fun and is a great way to socialize. It is also an ideal way to practice relaxation techniques while swimming. Focus on your strokes and your breathing. Let your mind wander and focus on the feel of the water on your body, the pull of your muscles when you swim and the sound of your breath. Chances are you will feel a sense of tranquility all while getting a workout in.
