Swimming Improves Cardio Health

Swimming offers you a chance to get your heart rate up, which is great for your cardiovascular health.  Whether you are treading water for minutes at a time, swimming laps, or rowing on a large raft, you will be able to strengthen your cardio muscles and help your body improve blood flow and increase endurance.

Swimming Provides Social Opportunities

Not only does swimming have many physical health benefits, but it also benefits your emotional health by giving you an opportunity to meet like-minded individuals.  When you have access to a community pool, you can meet other swimmers that enjoy living the fit lifestyle as well.  Who knows, you may even end up with a lifelong friend.

Swimming is Less Stress on Your Joints

Water activities are a way to engage your body in exercises that have low impact on your joints and bones.  Because of this, many rehab therapists will use a swimming pool to help exercise and loosen up their patients that have difficulty with their joints or muscles, even those that have recently undergone orthopedic surgery.  When you are feeling stiff or uncomfortable walking or running, consider taking up swimming.

Swimming Builds Overall Strength and Endurance

When you work on certain swimming moves in the pool, you will be able to build your overall endurance.  Because you are strengthening your heart muscles and improving blood flow, you are also going to be able to endure more of other types of exercises.  You may be able to run more miles at a time, enjoy hiking up higher altitudes, and doing activities that you may never thought you'd have the strength to do.

Swimming Tones and Tightens Your Muscles

Swimming laps each day can help you to tone and tighten your muscles.  If you are looking for a low-impact activity that can still have a positive impact on your overall physique, swimming is the choice for you.  Swimming laps around the pool offers you a full body workout, and you will start to notice the difference in both your legs and arms if you stick to it.


These are just a few of the many health benefits of having access to a swimming pool.  To live a healthier and fit lifestyle, you will want to check out our apartments in Cayce, SC.  Contact us to schedule your tour today.
