Why You Should Get In The Pool

Swimming is a fun activity that you can enjoy with your family and friends. That is why we suggest here at My Pool Guy why you should get in the pool.
Everyone can enjoy swimming as a primary or secondary form of physical fitness.

1. Heart Helper

Swimming provides unparalleled cardiovascular conditioning, provided you practice and with good technique. While other forms of exercise may be more effective at elite levels (such as running or cycling). Incorporating swimming into a cross-training routine will result in improved fitness.

2. Balance Your Build

Swimming builds longer and leaner muscles. That complement the shorter denser muscles that develop from weight training. These “swimmer’s muscles” also help boost metabolism to keep calories burning longer.

3. Cross-training

Swimming not only boosts cardiovascular capacity while increasing muscle strength. But it also gives your body a break from higher-impact activities.

4. Increased Flexibility

A heated pool relaxes muscles, increasing flexibility and enabling important stretching. Also, after intense lactic-acid-building endurance workouts. An easy swim helps flush out toxins. Preventing muscle tightness and soreness the following day.

5. Strengthen Your Core

Swimming develops core body strength because it utilizes all the body’s muscles. Kickboard and fin workouts can provide an excellent leg workout.

6. Endurance

Swimmers are able to swim longer than what they could sustain doing other activities. With the right technique, a swimmer will be able to train for longer periods of time. Than if he/she were running.

7. Adventure

Swimming has branched out from the darkened, indoor community pools of yesteryear. Many new health club chains offer clean lap pools. Local communities are finding renewed interest in outdoor facilities during the summer months. Seek out available natatoriums in your area (swimmersguide.com). Locate a natural body of water (lake, ocean, pond, or quarry) and explore the joys of open-water swimming.

8. Social Outlet

Imagine meeting the man/woman of your dreams. Seeing what they look like without their clothes on for your first date! That’s one benefit, at least, of joining a Masters team or triathlon training group.

9. Weight Loss

Swimming helps lose weight, burn and calories. Swimming works all the major muscles, and will tone you up and slim you down.A relaxing form of exercise means weight lost by swimming is fun too!
