Benefits of swimming
Teenagers, and elderly people, accomplished sportsmen or complete amateurs : swimming is a great activity for everyone. The main benefit is that it helps you build several muscle groups at once. It also helps you strengthen those that you may forget during your workouts, mainly your back and your shoulders. With a balanced diet, you should notice leaner muscles and lose weight quite quickly.
When they have patients that want to have an active lifestyle after an injury or years of inactivity, doctors and physiotherapists are more likely to recommend the practice of this sport. Indeed, the risk of injuries is very low as it does not involve any impact (like you may have with running, aerobics or HIIT for example). It is then very unlikely to twist one's ankle (as it may be the case with dance, cardio workouts and even yoga) or to fall down (when biking...). This is not the case of swimming. For all those reasons, people suffering from earlier injuries or in rehabilitation, pregnant women and so on are encouraged to follow swimming lessons.
If it is true that swimming has a positive impact on the body, it also has benefits for the mind. More particularly, it improves sleep quality. Moreover, water is recognised for alleviating stress and anxiety. You do not even need a cooldown after a session and you will not feel as much soreness as other sports practises. Swimming is also known for developing coordination and flexibility.
Furthermore, do you know that swimming is a primitive reflex ? This explains why, even though they cannot walk, babies are able to swim. However, it is recommended to avoid public pools for babies younger than 6 months, as the immune system of an infant is very fragile. This infrastructure provides lessons for parents and children who want to learn as soon as they can.
