A swimming pool is great for recreation and fun, but there are also so many health benefits to swimming. So when you are looking at the cost associated with building a swimming pool, you should also consider the health benefits for you and your entire family.

Fitness Magazine has an article about the benefits of swimming and here they are:

  • It counts as both cardio and strength training.
  • It’s Easy on the Impact – It’s great for those who need to take it easy on their joints. Or you can swim at higher intensities on a regular basis without feeling wear and tear on your body.
  • It’s Great for Your Lungs – When your face is under water, oxygen is at a premium.  In turn, your body adapts to use oxygen more efficiently.
  • It Makes You a Better Runner – By increasing your ability to take in and effectively use oxygen, swimming increases your endurance capacity like crazy.
  • Anyone Can Do It – Whether you’re recovering from an injury, pregnant, a new mom, or an Ironman competitor, swimming can give you a great workout.
  • It Slashes Major Stress – Being submerged in water dulls the amount of sensory information that bombards your body, helping to bring on feelings of calm.
  • It Turns Back the Clock – Regular swimmers are biologically 20 years younger than their driver’s licenses say they are, according to research from Indiana University.
  • It Hits Otherwise Underworked Muscles – When you’re in the pool, your arms are all over the place, meaning you need to work your often-neglected lats, deltoids, and traps.
  • It Makes You Smarter – Blood flow to the brain increased by up to 14 percent when men submerged themselves in water up to their hearts, according to a Journal of Physiology study.
  • It Opens You Up to Awesome Experiences – When you master swimming, you can be more adventurous. Think swimming across San Francisco Bay or snorkeling in the Bahamas.
