Why swimming is a good exercise?

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.

Have you ever heard about primitive reflex? This is an intuition that all babies have, so that they are able to swim even when they cannot walk. Even though they have this reflex, you'd better have to avoid public pools for babies younger than 6 months. The reason is that they still have to build their natural defence; an infant has a very weak immune system which makes a public pool not so suitable for him or her.

You would like to know what type of swimming technique suits you the best? Here are the most common strokes:

  • Breaststroke is the style often used by beginners, the one we usually learn first. It is also named "frog-style" in reference to the gesture you make to swim. You can rise your head over the water which allows you to breathe. Even though, it is a highly demanding technique.
  • Front crawl is known as the fastest stroke, often used during competitions. Arms and legs are alternatively going in the water to move the body forward.
  • Butterfly is a complex stroke where both arms move simultaneously. The whole shoulders and chest jump out of the water in addition to a kick to propel the body.
  • Finally, backstroke is interesting for all the people struggling with breath, since you swim on your back.

Safety and hygiene first!

In order to prevent injuries and also sanitary problems, there are many requirements that every public pools in Brussels has to fulfil. First of all, there is a restricted number of people allowed at the same time. This will guarantee your comfort while swimming. It also has another interest in order to limit the development of bacteria and germs. Of course, the pools must have a fully operational filtering sytem, the pH value has to be controlled and so on. The use of some pool ozone, chlorine and other substances is allowed to a certain extent. The goal is to provide a fresh and clean water for everyone.
