Believe it or not, there’s a whole host of health benefits from taking a dip in your nice new swimming pool. Now that it’s spring and the weather is warming up, it’s time to unpack those swimsuits and jump in the water. You might be wondering: how can swimming help me be healthier? Rhine Pools wants you to enjoy your pool–and your life–to the fullest, so we’ve written up four health benefits that come packed into your pool experience. Read on to find out more!
1. Stress Management
Stress can lead to heart issues and reduce your lifespan drastically. When we think about our health, it’s important not just to consider the obvious physical conditions that can impact how we feel. Taking a swim can help you recover from the stresses of a long day at work. Relaxing is an absolute necessity in the often-hectic modern day, so take some time to enjoy your pool.
2. Low-Impact Swimming Exercise
Swimming is a low-impact exercise that lets you get a high-quality cardiovascular workout while not placing too much stress on your limbs like running or biking does. It’ll get your heart rate up and give your lungs a great workout. Swimming burns the most exercises, and if you do it for 30 minutes several times a week, you’ll notice huge benefits to your heart and circulation. It’s also an exercise everyone can enjoy!
3. Treating Asthma
Asthmatic children can reap the health benefits of swimming in a pool. A 2009 study found that unlike other forms of cardiovascular exercise like running, swimming is much less likely to provoke asthma attacks. It found that asthmatic children gained fitness and increased their lung volume as well.
