Physical Benefits 

According to studies, swimming is one of the best cardiovascular exercises around. It helps boost health of the lungs and the heart, improve flexibility, develop strength and enhances stamina. Swimming also minimizes the occurrence of obesity among children. As an added bonus, compared to other types of exercises, swimming is the one activity that doesn’t put a lot of stress on the joints and tissues.
