Jack Lalanne swam 1.5 miles, carrying 70 rowboats with 70 people on his
70th birthday. Swimming was part of his daily workout routine for most of
his life. He recognized swimming as the best way to get a full-body workout
without the impact associated with most other cardio activities. Fortunately,
you don’t have to compete at that level to take advantage of the physical
and mental benefits of swimming.
Swimming, for fun or for sport, offers a total body workout. Nearly anyone
can do it, including children, young adults, professionals and the elderly. In
addition to the impact it has on the cardiovascular system, swimming can
also improve mood and provide opportunities to socialize with like-minded
professionals who use the same pool.
