Health Benefits of Swimming Lessons for Adults

Think you’re too old or out of shape for swim class? Those of us at British Swim School Dupage-Kane say, ‘no way!’ We offer lessons for adults and we know it’s never too late to learn to swim or to use swimming to get into great shape. In fact, we offer adult lessons throughout the western suburbs & beyond in many of our local indoor, heated swimming pools. We also offer experienced, highly trained 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. When working with us 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. Enrolling in swimming classes for adults at British Swim School Dupage-Kane can help you get ‘more bang for your buck.’ 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 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 have an injury.

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.
