Swimming is a good exercise. Regular swimming will build your muscle strength, endurance, and cardio-vascular fitness. The longer you swim, the more your endurance and speed will improve.
Swimming also stimulates circulation, promotes proper breathing, helps to combat the aging process and burns about 3 calories a mile per pound of bodyweight and improves one’s ability to control and maintain a healthy weight.
The process of swimming soothes the mind and body. It reduces stress, increases energy and leaves you with a heightened sense of well-being.
