If the gym isn't your thing or you'd like to keep your exercise varied why not try swimming.
Swimming is as much a recreational activity as it is an elite sport and taking up swimming will help you keep healthy in body and mind.
Our top reasons for getting into swimming are…
- Motivation - swimming boosts your mood and increases positivity & sleep quality.
- Surprise yourself - discover new strength as you swim regularly. Swimming uses every muscle group as well as boosting both your aerobic and anaerobic fitness.
- Challenge yourself – if you love to set yourself fitness targets then enter a number of challenges or competitions.
- Learn new tricks – whether you swim like a fish or haven’t been to the pool since school, you can learn something new with our adult swimming lesson programme.
Plus if you want to make waves in the pool then you will love using SWIMTAG® which costs just £1 in addition to a pay-as-you-go swim session. It’s a great way to check your progress - simply, retrieve the band from reception, swim your lengths and your time will be posted to a leader board.
From tracking your swim to competing in competitions, it's hard not to love a dip in the pool especially with SWIMTAG®
