Did you know?
There are no barriers to swimming in terms of gender, skills or age.
Swimming can be a solo almost meditative exercise and it can be a sociable experience at the hub of the community.
Swimming is weather-proof.
Up to 90% of the swimmer’s body weight is borne by the water, making the pool a better option than dry land for workouts, particularly for the elderly, and those suffering from injury, disability or arthritis.
Water is 800 times denser than air, so its resistance requires 30% more effort from the muscles moving through it. Therefore, more key muscle groups are used in swimming than other sports, promoting muscle growth, fat burning and the development of anti-ageing hormones.
