Swimming Benefits and Lessons

Benefits Of Swimming

Swimming is one of the greatest skills a that a person can learn. No exercise or activity offers a total-body workout as good as swimming. It is excellent for all ages because it is easier on your joints, increases flexibility, and can be an excellent stress reliever. It does not matter if you are a toddler or a senior, swimming is incredibly beneficial and lots of fun.

We asked our Club Vitae qualified Swim teacher what the main benefits of swimming are and why you should make sure to put time aside and take a dip in your local Club Vitae pool.

  1. Lifetime of fun and joy – swimming is one of the few sports that you can enjoy at any age
  2. Prevents drowning and gives you self-confidence – learning to swim reduces dramatically the risk of drowning whilst also giving you the self-confidence you need
  3. It is a great workout – Swimming can burn up to 500 calories in one hour
  4. Relieves stress and pain on joints

At Club Vitae we stand out from our competitors as we can offer excellent pool facilities including, Jacuzzi’s, Steam Rooms and Saunas. Our swimming pools also have our motto “fitness your way” at their heart.
