Swimming For Toning And Weight Loss

Are you are struggling to lose weight and tone your body up? Have you tried various different forms of exercise but can’t seem to stick to it? Do you feel overwhelmed by the amount of weight you need to loose and want an easy way to get some exercise?

Then look no further, give swimming a try. Not only is swimming a calm, easy and relaxing way to get some exercise into your day, it is also a fabulous way to stay cool during a heat wave. The David Lloyd Weybridge Brooklands club has crystal clear 25 meter indoor pool that is always heated to the perfect temperature mixture of cool and warm. There is a splash pool for kiddies, an expert swim coach and some master swim classes that are included when you sign up to be a member. With the obvious changes in weather lately, finding an indoor pool to do some exercise and keep cool indoors sounds like a great plan for everyone to consider.

If you are considering taking up swimming to shed those last few winter pounds or to tone up those tummies and thighs, then here are tips to remember before you start:

1. Swim 5 Days A Week If You Can

No matter what type of exercise you choose to do, whether it is swimming, jogging, or walking, it is important to be physically active at least 5 days of the week. The more physical activity you can bring into your daily life, the better.
The frequency of swimming for weight loss is the same as other cardiovascular exercises, so aim for four to five days a week for the best results. Just don’t forget to take a break and do other things you enjoy, such as playing online roulette too.

2. Slow And Steady Wins The Race

In order to not put your body into shock and to allow the integration of swimming as exercise into your lifestyle, we suggest starting slowly. Start with 15 to 20 minute swims every other day, and then slowly increase to 30 to 45 minute swims five days a week. Starting too hard, too quickly could put you at risk of muscle soreness and fatigue and you won’t go on to have a good day afterwards.

3. Try Swimming And Water Aerobics Together

Another way to gently ease into swimming exercise is to combine your swimming with water aerobics. For the first few weeks why not try one day of swimming, then water aerobics the next day. This is an excellent low-stress exercise to keep moving on active recovery days.

4. Try Swimming With A Float Or A Pool Noodle

If trying swimming out as exercise is new to you, you have a physical injury or your fitness is very low then why not try swimming laps around the pool using a pool noodle, kick board, or life vest? These will keep you afloat as you use your arms and legs to move through the water building strength up slowly and not putting too much pressure on your body.

If you are in the Weybridge area and looking for an active, fun and productive way to spend a hot and sweaty day that’s reminiscent of a beachside vacation, then why not take a visit to the pool at the Weybridge Brooklyn’s club? Not only is there a pool there to full fill your swimming needs, there are plenty of other top notch facilities for you to enjoy.
