Swimming

Swimming is an excellent form of exercise as it gives a full-body workout.

An Overview of Swimming

Because the density of the human body is very similar to that of water, the body is supported by the water meaning less stress is placed on joints and bones. Therefore, swimming is frequently used as an exercise in rehabilitation after injuries and is suitable for all ages.

Whether you're thinking of learning for the first time or returning to swimming after a few years - whether you'd like to join a club and try competitive swimming or just get in the water for leisure, take the plunge and Go Swim!
