So surprise, I had a 🏊 Swimming Infographic posted sent to my 📧 email inbox, and just had to share it with you below.
Swimming And Your Health
I know for me and one who suffers from arthritic pain, getting into the pool and getting my joints moving definitely improves my overall flexibility. It also reduces pain in my muscles and joints as the graph above outlines.
I also enjoy deep water exercising, which gets the ❤ heart rate up without putting any strain on my joints, compared to that of 🏃 high impact exercising.
Quote from Better Health Channel
Swimmingis a good all-round activity because it: keeps your heart rate up but takes some of the impact stress off your body. Builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness. Helps maintain a healthy weight, healthy heart and lungs.

I also love to finish my pool time with a soak in the hot tub!
Swimming Reduces Your Risk Of Heart Disease
I always enjoy the water on vacation!
Im pleasantly surprised to see that with just 30 minutes of swimming on a regular basis, can help reduce your risk of contracting heart disease by as much as 40%. 😲
I certainly believe this is the case for any form of exercise, compared to that of living a 🛋 sedentary lifestyle.
We need to get up off that 🛋 couch and get moving!
My wife and I own a 🐕 dog, and one of the great benefits of having a pet is that they need walking. This encourages you to get out each day for that walk. Not only good for you, but for your 4 legged companion as well!

Yes, and with most any form of exercise, you can definitely reduce your risk of developing diabetes. Its proven that diabetes is a preventable disease, with proper exercise and a balanced diet.
Just another great reason to get in the pool and swim, or join an exercise class appropriate for your age group.
You dont have to be a great swimmer to enjoy the benefits of swimming. I see many people in the pool doing exercises like myself, from water walking to light aerobic exercising.
Anything you like, just get in the pool and move around and your body will love you for it!

From light to moderate swimming or exercising, the chart suggests you can burn from 90 to as much as 370 calories in just 30 minutes.
For those actual swimmers, depending on your level of fitness and speed, you can burn in excess of 500 calories in just half an hour. Wow!!
