Swimming: if you aren’t moving, you’re sinking! Unlike many other sports, swimming is both continual cardio and strength training. Since water is 800 times more dense than air, a swimmer is under constant resistance making for a full body workout that is very low impact. Though swimming is an excellent exercise program, it is also a valuable life skill. Because of the nature of swimming, swimmers often experience lower stress levels and better overall mood quality than non-swimmers. There is also evidence that swimmers’ bodies are on average 20 years younger than those of non-swimmers of the same physical age, and that swimmers tend to have higher brain activity because of the way water pressure effects blood flow.
