5 Reasons Swimming Is the Perfect Workout for Weight Loss


Swimming is viewed as a recreational and fun activity but did you know that it is considered as one of the best workouts for weight loss too. Whether you indulge in those few leisure strokes or practise it at a competitive level, swimming can give your body an overall workout. If you haven’t considered swimming as your next workout yet, here are a few reasons that will convince you to dive in.

Burns calories
You can burn much more calories swimming than could while you walk or run. An average built person can easily burn 400-500 calories in a 60 minute session of moderate-intensity swimming.

Works out your muscles
The different strokes involved in swimming requires a good amount of muscle power. This gives your muscles a good workout every session. Those looking out for a muscle building workout should try high-intensity swimming as this can adequately stimulate your muscle growth.

Tones you out
Swimming no doubt exercises your whole body. When you swim your arms, shoulders, back, core, glutes and legs get a thorough workout thus toning them effectively.

Boosts metabolism
Any activity that burns calories and gets your heart rate up also boosts your metabolism. This makes swimming the perfect metabolism boosting activity. An active metabolism in turn aids fast weight loss.

Motivates you to try harder
The swimming attire usually requires you to strip down to bare minimal. This motivates you to train harder to look good in your swimwear.
