Aim of group

LADIES SWIMMING – SWIM for HEALTH, FITNESS and have lots of FUN. Water based exercise is a great way to keep fit, starting very gently to improve your overall health. It’s ideal for people who do not want high impact style classes. The water supports the body and is great for people with joint problems; backache etc. Take your time; work at your own pace, whether it’s a social evening or fitness based.

Swimming is the Sport for All – The sport for Life. At every stage of life swimming is an essential life skill and provides a fun social environment. Swimming brings significant health and well being benefits, enabling us to lead a longer, healthier and happier life.

As we get older, we are more at risk of being overweight, having coronary heart disease, diabetes or strokes. Swimming and water based activities are great as a means of prevention of and rehabilitation from coronary heart disease, strokes and cancer. The water’s weight bearing properties make exercising easier on the heart, lungs and joints. Research has shown that swimming slows down the ageing process in a number of areas such as respiration, muscle mass, cardiovascular activity and neurological function. Taking part in a swimming class is also a great way to make new friends and improve both social and mental wellbeing.
