Many people have taken New Year's resolutions to stop eating donuts, to quit smoking, or to get fit. No matter what age you may be, swimming is a whole-body exercise for all body types. Whether you have a variety of health conditions that limit your mobility or you're the fittest athlete around, you can get fit or fitter by swimming. This is because swimming is both challenging, easy, and every gradient in between.

The Health Benefits of Swimming Versus Other Exercise

One key benefit of swimming is that it takes the stress off your joints and can even relieve muscle pain if you swim in warm waters that help you relax. The buoyancy of water creates sufficient uplift and pressure relief to help those with arthritis and other musculoskeletal pain to find ease of movement.

Swimming is great for the core and working a variety of muscles without the excessive pressures that can cause pain. It is also a form of cardiovascular exercise that raises the heart rate and lowers blood pressure. On top of this, swimmers inherently develop lifesaving skills that they can use to rescue anyone struggling or drowning.

The earlier that children begin swimming, the stronger it will carry with them through their lives. Developing a natural affinity for water and the athletic capacity to swim will improve their character and help them avoid unhealthy lifestyle choices. For this reason, swimming benefits the entire family. The athleticism developed by swimming also helps your family build strong work ethic skills, energy, and focus.

You can also do High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) sessions in your pool to really step things up. The pool is a great environment to challenge yourself because there is never a limit to how fast you can swim. You could always improve upon your lap times. That being said, if you push yourself to cross the pool a few times, as fast as possible, you will raise your cardio rate and deplete oxygen levels in your body. As a result, you will burn calories even when you're not swimming.

Swimming is Fun for the Whole Family

Another wonderful benefit of swimming is that the environment promotes fun and creativity. It can be the center of recreational time on hot days and the place to be at night in a romantic well-lit pool.

A pool is the ideal follow up to a backyard barbeque or party. People who like to play games outdoors find that many games like basketball, tug of war, and even badminton can be adapted for the pool. Pools also create social situations by attracting friends and family members who are trying to cool off while enjoying your pool.

Planning for a Pool Installation

The first thing that many people wonder is "how much does an inground pool cost?" Although the average price of an inground pool sits at about $22,000, there is no real price for the years of unfettered enjoyment and beauty that a pool can add to any property. If you own the home for 22-years, that is just $1,000 a year. This is a price that will probably seem trivial 22-years from now at the current inflation costs. Although there is no guarantee that a pool will raise your property value when you sell it, of itself, you can market the lifestyle and demonstrate the value to prospective buyers.

It is a good idea to assess how much you may actually use your pool by first attending a gym where they have a good pool. If you have enough enthusiasm to drive to the gym regularly for playtime or exercise, you can bet that you will get your money's worth from a pool installation of your own.

The Ultimate Rational to Swim

In conclusion, it is easier to move your body around in a pool. The degrees of resistance available underwater and an endless number of swimming positions can altogether make a pool an important investment in your health.
