Why are children’s swimming lessons important? 

Now that you know our pricing, you may be wondering why children’s swim lessons are important. If you are looking for an in-depth explanation to this question, head on over to our blogs and check out the one titled “Why are child swim lessons important?” Here you will find an excerpt from that blog and one of the main reasons why children’s swim lessons are important. 

Physical Health Benefits 

More than two-thirds of the United States is overweight or obese, and heart disease continues to reign as the number one cause of death in the United States. With that in mind, physical health and the associated activities that result in great physical health are more important than they ever have been. Unfortunately, many people who struggle with being overweight or obese do not know where to begin. Luckily, we have a potential solution: swimming.

Swimming is one of the best exercises anyone can do (given that they know how to swim), and it can be done by anyone of any age. Below you will find a list of reasons why swimming is one of the best ways you can choose to get your body in shape. 

Low Impact Exercise

Because swimming does not require pounding weights against the ground or running on asphalt, the impact is greatly reduced. This is particularly helpful for people who suffer from injuries, joint pain, or any other form of condition that does not do well during high-impact exercises.  As a matter of fact, many physical therapists utilize water for exactly this reason. If you struggle with lifting weights, running, or other high impact exercises, swimming may be the best option out there for you. 

Improves Cardiovascular Fitness

Swimming is one of the best cardiovascular exercises known to man. Because of it’s nature, swimming allows for someone to breath only when their head is out of the water. By practicing proper breathing while swimming, they are working the lungs, increasing their heart rate, and maintaining conscious control over their breathing patterns. This allows for maximum cardiovascular benefits to occur. Fortunately, this directly addresses the statistic mentioned earlier on heart disease. 

The heart is part of the cardiovascular system. As a matter of fact, heart disease is a form of cardiovascular disease. If someone swims for exercise, they are directly decreasing their chances of dying from heart disease. Some studies even suggest swimmers reduce their risk of heart disease by nearly 50%. If you want a healthy heart, swimming is the way to go. With that being said, let’s not forget to address another key player in the cardiovascular system: the lungs. 

Whenever someone exercises, they increase their heart rate which results in an increased need for oxygen. Basically, when you move your body, you breath faster. Because you can only breath while swimming with your head out of the water, your lungs have to take in the maximum amount of air possible every time you breathe. This results in increased functioning of the lungs as well increased lung capacity. In other words, your lungs work better all around. This caps off a well-rounded cardiovascular system, and swimming addresses all of it. But there’s one other benefit that many people don’t see coming: increased energy. 

An efficient cardiovascular system means your body is capable of pumping blood to every part of your body while utilizing every bit of oxygen you get. That means in your day-to-day life, those improvements still exist. If you usually get tired quickly, swimming can address that and leave you smiling and energetic throughout the day. 

Full Body Workout

A workout is defined as intentionally moving your body against resistance. For example, when you lift weights, the force of resistance is gravity which pulls the weights you are lifting straight down towards the earth. When you are in a pool however, the force of gravity has a very minimal effect. If this comes across as, “swimming is easy,” think again. When you are submerged in water, the force of resistance is even distributed all around you. That means that you are facing resistance in every single direction. So instead of working very specific muscles by moving against the force of gravity like at the gym, you are working your entire body! 

The full body workout resulting from swimming is especially known for the amount of energy it takes. In fact, swimming burns twice as many calories as running, making it one of the best ways to lose weight.
