Summer is already here, and for some, this means that pool season is here too. Taking a dip in the pool might – in addition to cooling you down – offer some surprising health benefits.

For one, swimming works your whole body, building both strength and endurance. More surprisingly, it works the inside of your body too, being great for your lungs and also help lower blood pressure.

For people with different injuries, for example knee injuries, swimming is great — it’s a safe option that doesn’t put too much pressure on a particular part of the body.

For moms-to-be

Crawling your way to better stamina is easy with swimming, and you can actually burn up to 400 calories an hour in the pool with moderate pace. If you are pregnant and afraid of working out too hard, swimming is also safe for pregnant women.

Some people might be wary of letting their kids into the pool, but fear not — once your kids learn to swim, it’s a great way for them to keep in shape. Kids actually need a minimum of 60 minutes of exercise per day, and swimming is, thus, a great way to get them moving.

So, if you’re feeling hot, you now have another reason to track down the nearest pool! If you can’t swim but you’re keen to learn, there are swimming classes for both kids and adults all over Hyderbad. So, get in the water, mate!
