Health Benefits of Swimming Lessons for Adults in Chicago

Think you’re too old or out of shape for swim class? As Chicago, IL’s favorite place to for swimming lessons for adults, we know it’s never too late to learn to swim or to use it to get into great shape. In fact, at British Swim School Downtown Chicago, we offer adults from throughout Chicago, Skokie, and beyond lessons in many of our local indoor heated swimming pools. We also offer experienced instructors and a small class environment.

Whether you’re 35 or 85, your health will benefit in a variety of ways once you learn to swim. In fact, swimming provides:

An entire-body workout. No other exercise engages your body quite like swimming. At British Swim School Downtown Chicago, you’ll be using your arms, shoulders, core, hips, legs, hands, and feet for a total body workout. As a result, when it comes to cardiovascular exercises, nothing can compare to swimming. Not only that, but since you’re experiencing constant resistance in the pool, it’s a great form of strength training, too.

A better calorie burn. When it comes to your workout, you want the most bang for your buck. Enrolling in swimming lessons for adults at British Swim School Downtown Chicago can deliver it. In fact, you’ll burn nearly 100 more calories jogging in the pool for a half an hour than when jogging on land for that same amount of time.

A low-impact form of exercise. As you age, it’s important to engage in activities that are low impact and don’t put you at risk for an injury. Swimming is a great way to get exercise without causing damaging stress to your joints, bones, and muscles. Not only that, but since water supports 90% of your body weight, it can reduce strain and actually lead to pain relief if you do have an injury or ailment.

Lowered stress and better moods. Our swimming lessons for adults are a healthy way to relieve regular day-to-day stress, as well as cut down on your risk for anxiety and depression. Being submerged in the water creates a feeling of peace and well-being that will improve your mood, too.
