Active Life for Healthy Days: Swimming

Society | October 10, 2002, Thursday // 00:00

Swimming as a sport can be extremely informal or can involve serious training and competition in galas. How seriously you take your training is your own choice. Most swimming pools have lessons for adult beginners and improvers as well as for children. Setting a goal to swim once a week will get you started.

Swimming improves the condition of the heart and lungs and works both upper and lower body muscles. To swim well a high degree of flexibility is needed, thus regular swimming will help to maintain flexibility - especially in the shoulder area.
