Health Benefits of Swimming & Owning a Swimming Pool

Dive in and enjoy these amazing health benefits of swimming!  Owning a swimming pool is synonymous of fun, recreation, and even status. Most families decide to add a pool to their backyards for entertainment purposes.

However, the benefits of having a private pool extend well beyond endless fun. Let’s consider the mental and physical health benefits of swimming.

1. You Get a Full-Body Workout

Not only is swimming a fun way to exercise; it is also a very effective one. When you swim, you use almost every muscle group in your body, including your arms, legs, and core.

Like other physical activities, swimming can:

Build cardiovascular strength
Make you stronger
Help you lose weight
Tone your muscles

Unlike other sports such as running, swimming is a low- impact activity, which makes it an excellent alternative for anyone who has back or joint problems.

2. It Reduces Anxiety

The experts agree that uncontrolled stress and anxiety can have a devastating impact on our health. These days we are all under a tremendous amount of stress, even kids.  If left unchecked stress can cause:

Weight gain
Low performance at work or school

Swimming pools provide a calm and fun environment which can help us relax and control our stress levels. Additionally, swimming helps our brain release serotonin “the happy hormone” known for inducing feelings of calmness, and joy.

3. It Can Help Manage Asthma

Just like swimming helps build cardiovascular strength, it can also increase lung capacity and improve breathing control.

Additionally, the warm, humid air around pools can help make breathing easier.

4. Great Exercise for Pregnant Women

Pregnant women sometimes struggle to find ways to keep fit during their pregnancies. Swimming is a fantastic option as it is a low-impact sport, and the buoyancy of the water can help relieve joint and muscle pain caused by the excess weight.

Although swimming is generally considered a safe activity during pregnancy, you should consult with your doctor before you undertake any new physical activity. We can all agree that swimming is one of the best ways to stay active, and having a pool provides a fun way to spend quality time with friends and family.

However, these benefits are only possible if you have a well-maintained pool. A poorly kept pool can wipe out all the advantages your swimming pool has and become a hazard to your family’s health.
