Why Swim?

Not only is swimming an essential lifelong skill that could save your life, its also fantastic for your health! Swimming regularly can not only help to reduce the risk of developing some chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke but, it can also help you to keep your weight under control and boost your mood! Exercising in the water also allows you to move in a ‘weightless’ environment which reduces wear and tear on the joints, lowers the risk of you developing any injuries and reduces the risk of aggravating any existing medical conditions. Swimming helps to tone the muscles, stimulates circulation and, on average a 30 minute session can burn approximately 240 calories! All these fantastic benefits will help you to be the best you can be, fitter, healthier and more confident.

Nervous about getting in the water?

Don’t be. The fantastic thing about swimming is, no matter what your age or ability anyone can have fun the water. All our pool sites have qualified life guards so, you can feel reassured that you are in safe hands when entering the water at our sites.
