Healthy Swim: NJ Pools Help Homeowners Get Fit in Their Own Backyard


The natural properties of water are just the beginning. Swimming itself is a perfect whole-body fitness routine; your arms and legs are exercised by propelling you through the water, and your cardiovascular system works overtime to fuel your muscles while providing you with oxygen to breathe. This effort alone burns a whole lot of calories. It’s been estimated that a person weighing 205 pounds can burn around 931 calories when swimming vigorously for an hour. Imagine doing that daily, combined with a balanced diet, and you’ll be able to reach your ideal weight and lean body in no time.

However, swimming isn’t the only fitness routine you can do in your pool. For those who aren’t ready for the physical rigors of swimming, water walking or jogging can be a more comfortable alternative. All it requires is that you get a flotation device like a vest or a pool noodle.
