Swimming doesn’t only burn calories. It is also low impact.

  • Water is about 800 times denser than air. This means you can work harder and burn more calories in a pool.
  • Swimming can support up to 90% of the bodyís weight in the water, creating a safer exercise environment for people with injuries.
  • The pressure of water means you can work to the same intensity as on land but with a heart rate of up to 20bpm lower.
