The benefits of swimming on your health
Whether you are a teenager or an elderly person, whether you are an accomplished sportsman or a complete amateur, swimming is an excellent sport. It helps you build all your muscle groups at once, even the one you are not used to train such as your back and your shoulder. You will quickly note a weight loss as well as leaner muscles.
Doctors and kinesitherapists often recommend the practise of this sport because the risk of injuries is very low. Indeed, other sports have impacts (running, HIIT...), risks of twisting an ankle (dance, cardio workout, yoga...) or of falling down (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.
Note that it also has a series of benefits on your mood, especially because your sleep will be deeper. Moreover, water is reccognized for alleviating stress and anxiety. You don't even need a cooldown after a session and you won't feel as much soreness as other sport practises. Swimming is also reknown for developping coordination and flexibility.
You may not know it, but swimming is a primitive reflex. That explains why babies can swim too, even if they don't even walk. Nevertheless, since they still have a weak immune system, it is not recommended to go to public pools with them before they are at least 6 months. Some of these infrastructures provide lessons for parents and children who want to learn as soon as they can.
