Even the simplest pool exercise—walking forward and backward in waist-high water—improves your balance, trains the core muscles of your abdomen, increases your flexibility and boosts cardiovascular fitness.
Swimming. This form of water exercise can increase cardiovascular health, joint health, and upper and lower body strength. Swimming is great exercise for a low-impact aerobic activity.
Lap Swimming Tips: Please enter the pool from the shallow end. To avoid accidents, when entering an occupied lane, please get the first swimmer’s acknowledgement that you are there. Please get kickboards, pull buoys, etc. before entering the pool.
Directions for Adult Lap: If there are 1 or 2 swimmers in a lane, they may elect to split the lane in half. The entrance of a third person immediately changes the lane to “circle” swimming format.
Speed: Please choose a lane with swimmers that most nearly match your speed.
