How Can Swimming Help in Developing Your Kids?
Now is the time to start encouraging healthy habits. In the past 30 years, obesity has increased as much as 400 percent among children and teens. The sad fact is that many of these children may struggle with weight and health issues for the rest of their lives. Parents want the best for their children, and swimming lessons for kids are a good way to build a strong foundation for a more active and healthier future.
Benefits Of Swimming
Swimming is much more than a quick dip in the pool. Fitness icon Jack LaLane swam an hour a day, even just prior to his death at age 93. His results were obviously unique, but swimming is a very important part of a healthy and active lifestyle:
Low Impact Workout:
Swimming puts no pressure on knees, ankles, wrists, elbows and other joints. Even in the presence of arthritis or another congenital condition, a few minutes a day in the pool can keep young and old bodies strong. For an even lower impact workout, add a buoy or personal flotation device.
Cardiorespiratory Fitness Translation:
The ability to climb stairs without pain or breathlessness when a person eclipses age 50. One study proved that swimming significantly increased both blood flow (18 percent) and maximum oxygen consumption (10 percent).
After an injury, it’s important to get back to a normal physical routine as quickly as possible, whether the person sustained a major trauma injury or stubbed a toe. In addition to low-impact, swimming works muscles harder because of the resistance in the water. Shorter recovery time is almost always a good thing.
Add Muscle Mass:
In addition to developing muscle tone, the resistance in swimming can actually add muscle mass. One group of men who swam regularly for eight weeks saw a 23.8 percent increase in their triceps (back of the arm) muscle mass.
Statistics vary, but most people burn between 500 and 650 calories per hour while swimming. That’s almost as effective as running or cycling and, especially on a hot day, a lot more comfortable.
Swimming is a fun family activity that everyone can enjoy together, and the healthy habits that kids develop may be passed down to their kids. There are also many non-physical benefits, including more confidence around bodies of water and more fun at water parks, which are picked up during swimming lessons for kids.
