Having easy access to a pool can make it easier for you to have a regular cardio workout to increase your stamina. Not only that, swimming is also an excellent whole-body, low impact exercise. This means that your joints and muscles don’t suffer the jarring impacts that they usually do during normal exercise routines. With the water mostly cushioning and buoying the body, this makes it a perfect exercise for those suffering from physical infirmities like arthritis or fragile bones.
Additionally, swimming requires all the major muscle groups in the body: the shoulders, back, glutes, hips, and legs. The water’s resistance challenges these muscles and strengthens them.
