More and more people are realising the health benefits of swimming. There is no excessive stress or strain on joints or muscles that is associated with land based exercise as your body is supported by the water.
Swimming is the single best exercise for toning your arms, shoulders, waistline, hips and legs all at once. Swimming also helps with weight loss and helps increase your metabolism.
Swimming is an excellent aerobic heart pumping exercise, which means that if you do it regularly and vigorously enough to raise your heartbeat to 70% of it's maximum for half an hour or more your cardiovascular system will gradually grow stronger and more efficent.
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to starting time. All levels are catered for from junior swimmers to adults, triathletes, surf and still water swimmers.
