Did you know that 150 minutes of moderate physical activity each week is what experts recommend for adults to maintain good health? If only being physically active today was as fun as it was when you were a kid. Think back to all those afternoons, riding bicycles and playing. And the summers where you and your friends reigned at the neighborhood pool. What if there was a way you could have all that excitement back? Well now you can! Swim your way to better health when you design your own custom pool with Mastercraft Pool & Spa.
Exercise for Better Health
Work your entire body with swimming. Build strength and endurance, and even increase your heart rate without stressing your body. This means fat burning and muscle toning all in one workout — working smarter, not harder. You can also incorporate different strokes to learn and perfect so you’re never bored. Try adding these to your swim session:
Swimming also does wonders for your cardiovascular system, making your lungs and heart stronger. It can also lower blood pressure and blood sugar. According to the CDC, swimmers have about half the risk of death when compared to others who are inactive.
Heal Faster from Injuries
Do you suffer from arthritis or another injury that has hindered your physical activity? Swimming can help reduce your pain and speed up your recovery time from an injury. Swim spas are exceptionally helpful when it comes to physical therapies. They feature an array of jets that deliver soothing hydrotherapy right where you need it. So swim your way to feeling better all day long.
Sleep Better, Think Better
Regular aerobic exercise is also proven to help with insomnia. Better sleep means a boosted immune system, and a more positive outlook on life. Swimming also helps you to manage your stress level, and even depression, which adds to better mental focus.
