Swimming - a fantastic way to keep fit!



Swim, Keep Fit and Lose Weight

Experts say swimming is one of the best forms of exercise. Regular swimming builds endurance, muscle strength and cardio-vascular fitness. In addition, because you are using most of the major muscle groups, it gives your body a great overall workout. It's also a fantastic way to get and keep trim – Did you know that swimming burns about three calories per mile for EACH POUND of bodyweight. That's 400 calories lost, if you weigh 9½ Stone, for EVERY mile! If you weigh twice as much you burn off twice as much!
