Expert Advice on Getting the Most Out of Swimming

GLASGOW, Scotland, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Swimming is officially the most popular participation sport in the country*, and with new national initiatives 'Learn to Swim' and 'Free Swimming', there has never been a better time for people to visit their local pool and get fit for free. With this in mind, top personal trainer Lucy Wyndham-Read and behavioural psychologist Judi James, resident experts at AXA PPP Healthcare's Nutrition and Fitness website (http://nutritionandfitness.axappphealthcare.co.uk/index.php?axacmp=pr/articles/swimming) have compiled their guide to taking the plunge with a series of water-based workouts and motivational exercises.

Lucy Wyndham-Read recommends swimming as a form of regular physical activity for people of all ages and fitness levels.

"Whether you're an absolute beginner or a fitness fanatic, swimming is an excellent way to tone up, improve your cardiovascular health, lower your blood pressure and leave you feeling fighting fit."

Judi James adds, "Swimming is naturally enjoyable for most people, and if you enjoy something you're far more likely to stick to it."

How swimming can help:

  • Helps combat stress and beat the blues as it releases endorphins (the body's natural 'feel good' chemicals)
  • Safe - Low impact putting less pressure on the joints, unlike exercises such as aerobics and running
  • Swimming tones your entire body and water keeps you cool, meaning you can work out for longer
