Swimming in the UK

Everyone knows that exercise is good for you, but just what sort of exercise is the best? Studies have shown that swimming, one of the easiest and most enjoyable forms of exercise, is also one of the most beneficial for your overall well-being. There are a many reasons people take up swimming, whether it is for their health, their enjoyment, or even to protect themselves and their loved ones in the advent of an emergency. Luckily it is not hard to learn, and there are many schools all over the UK who have dedicated instructors willing to take you through the learning process.

Sporting curriculum

It is not surprising that a number of schools throughout the UK are now incorporating swimming into the sporting curriculum, with the aim of improving the health of their students and their awareness of water safety. Although pool-related accidents are not as common in the UK as they are in hotter climates, there are still a large number of water-related accidents (in rivers, canals, ponds and lakes, and at the beach), which could have been prevented had there been a greater awareness of swimming safety. It is important that everyone knows at least the basics of staying safe in the water, even if they are not a regular swimmer – you simply never know when an emergency may arise. Fortunately, learning to swim and being taught about water safety is usually an incredibly enjoyable experience, and most kids (and adults) are happy to take part.

Benefits of swimming

Swimming is an incredibly popular sport and past-time all over the world, and it is one of the most common activities to be taken up in the summer months. Not only does it offer people the opportunity to cool down on a hot day and have fun with friends and family, but it can also benefit your health and your overall safety.

Fitness

One of the most popular reasons for taking up swimming is for fitness and health. If you want to lose weight, tone your muscles, or keep your core body fitness levels up, swimming is one of the best ways to do it. Not only does it use all of your body – your legs, your arms, your torso and back, and even your neck – but it also improves your lung capacity dramatically. Because your weight is supported in the water, it is also a great way for people to undergo physical rehabilitation after an accident, illness or surgery.

Even if you don’t use swimming pools that much, it is important that you know how to stay afloat once you’re in the water. If you are interested in fishing, boating, beachcombing, or any other activity that takes place by the water, it is highly recommended that you at least learn the basics of swimming. If you happened to end up in the water (or saw someone else in the same predicament) you would drastically improve your chances of survival simply by knowing how to keep your head above water.
