Health benefits of swimming:

I love swimming. It is a great way to cool off in the summer. It is super fun. I’m been an advid swimmer since I was 6, and took swimming lessons. I have back pain from my job but the water takes the weight off your joints so it is great exercise for someone with arthritis.

Some health benefits of swimming are:

  • It’s a full body work out
  • Takes pressure off your joints. Supports 90% of your body weight.
  • Improves your heart health
  • Makes you stronger and tones muscles
  • Burns calories
  • Gives you energy
  • You don’t break a sweat!
  • Strengthens your lungs!
  • Good option for asthmatics, people with M.S. or that are disabled.
  • Helps you sleep
  • Refreshing on a hot day!
  • Getting Vitamin D from the sun! Use sun block if you need

  1. I have joint pain and nerve damage and I imagine swimming would be a wonderful way to boost overall wellbeing, perhaps even help my lungs (lung disease and damage). I’ve not been in a pool for many, many years, and I don’t think I’d be able to manage much at all these days but it would be lovely to let the water just take the pressure off your body.

  2. You are preaching to the choir! 🙂 I am a swimmer and have been my whole life. I taught Water Aerobics for almost 20 years, I am a swim coach and I am an avid scuba/resuce diver. I know ALL about the healing properties of water. 🙂
