  • Swimming goggles: useful for seeing underwater and avoiding irritated eyes, they can also be adapted to your eyesight if you're short-sighted, for example.
  • A swimming cap: protects your hair from the products in the pool water and can even improve your speed.
  • A nose clip: some people use them for certain swims such as breaststroke or freestyle, and this tool will keep water out of your nose.
  • Fins: for some classes, you may need this equipment, which is useful for strengthening muscles and enabling you to swim more quickly.
  • Towel: of course, you'll need to dry off when you get out of the pool! Make sure you have a towel that dries quickly so that you can put it back in your bag without without getting all your stuff wet.

More information about these swimming pools

Whether you're an active person or you are just beginning sport, swimming is a great activity. First of all, it helps you build muscles you don't often use or train otherwise. If you are pregnant or suffer from joint problems, this low-impact sport is particularly adapted for you. It also prevents some injuries typically related to sport. Moreover, water is known for reducing stress.

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.

A few facts about the swimming practice

Do you know that one hour of swimming may burn up to 40% more calories than the same amount of time spent biking and 30% more than running for one hour? It is a highly demanding workout that uses your whole body. That is the reason why you're often hungry and exhausted after one session at the pool.

In addition to being an excellent cardio exercise, swimming is also helpful for people with asthma and cardiovascular problems. It also helps to reduce stress and anxiety, and therefore depression.

Another interesting fact is that there are "baby swimmers" lessons where young toddlers can get used to be in a water environment. They can learn different movements to swim more efficiently from the age of 1 year.
