Resources for Fitness Swimming

Swimming is an ideal fitness activity. When you swim, you get a total body workout that combines cardiovascular and strength benefits. You work your heart and lungs as well as getting a strenuous workout for your upper and lower body. In addition, this is done in a weight bearing (the water bears your body weight) environment so that there is little stress to your joints and connective tissue. It is less important that you are a good swimmer and more important that you are active against the resistance of the water which, in fact, provides much more resistance than air. Whether you enter a pool or other body of water to swim or for some other fitness activity is not important either since all activities in water will produce varying degrees of the same effect. We highly recommend swimming as both an excellent aerobic and cardiovascular activity and a strength and flexibility activity.
