As you probably know, swimming is an activity that will bring many benefits, from the physical ones to mental and social ones. Swimming gives you an excellent cardiovascular workout and will tone your muscles. It also helps you lose weight and strengthens your lungs. Furthermore, signing your child for a baby swimming lesson will help them a lot shape their body and develop stamina while they are still young.
First of all, swimming is an excellent activity to practice at any time but is very popular during the summer since you can practice it at pools or at the sea. This activity will not force your joints. By contrast, it has a low risk of injury if practiced the right way and will even help cure various diseases of the muscular system.
Secondly, swimming is a form of exercise that increases heart rate and improves circulation. During swimming, all muscle groups are set in motion simultaneously, causing the body a total workout. Heart rate must increase in order to provide more oxygen to the muscles. Over time, body strength will increase and training will become easier. This activity has a positive influence on the lungs, meaning that in time will increase breathing capacity and you will breathe more efficiently. This is beneficial for older people whose respiratory capacity begins to decline with age. Also, swimming is good for adults and children with asthma. Studies performed on representative samples of children and adults have shown that swimming reduces the severity of asthma episodes. Therefore, if your baby has asthma problems, you should consider taking them to a baby swimming lesson.
Furthermore, a 60-kg person swimming at a moderate pace will burn about 240 calories every 30 minutes. Over time, burning calories and increasing metabolism derived from replacing fat with muscle mass can lead to significant weight loss. For weight loss to occur the diet must be controlled. A study shows that weight loss through swimming is quite difficult because it is suspected that the cold pool water stimulates the appetite.
