People all love our sports whether it be football, baseball or golf they all love to play and watch. The only problem is that most sports can’t be played all the time when one gets older so people are not getting as much exercise and this can end very badly.

Swimming, on the other hand, is one of those sports that people can do forever. Swimming works a lot of muscles in the core, arms and legs.

There are a lot of ways to get a healthy swim. The most popular are lap swimming and water aerobics.  All of these are fast activities that anyone can do no matter how old they are.

Lap swimming is the one that most people of all ages do. There are multiple strokes people do such as several of the strokes like the freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly as well as having a pool Bowie or a kickboard. Doing this helps people with their legs and abs.

Water aerobics is something that older people tend to do but anyone can do it. People move around doing exercises but in water. This is good because moving around can be easier for people who have trouble with that but they still get the same amount of exercise as if they weren’t in the water.
