Physical health

Swimming keeps your heart rate up but takes some of the impact stress off your body, while also building endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness.

 Mental health

Daily life can be very stressful and swimming can be a great way to help relax. Being in the water can calm you and help remove some of the stress from your life. 

Injury recovery 

Swimming provides good low-impact therapy for some injuries and conditions. It is necessary to be active while recovering from an injury so that you can prevent stiffening joints and muscle deterioration.

Save your life

If you ever went to a beach or a lake, swimming would be a necessary life skill if you fell from a boat or were swimming, because you wouldn’t drown. 

Cool you down!

In summer it can get really hot, and swimming can cool you down and prevent you from overheating!
