Okay, okay so it isn’t that easy but, swimming and doing general exercise in the pool is wonderful for those recovering from and injury because you defy gravity in water. Joints are at ease and those who have excess amounts of body fat may be prescribed by a doctor to begin with pool exercises.

You’ll also burn calories, reduce fat and lose weight at the same rate as working out on land. So, what are you waiting for? Get to swimming!
