January is fast approaching and with it comes those new year resolutions. Chances are your’s will contain at least one related to improving your wellbeing; whether it be diet or doing more exercise.
There’s a good reason gym owners love January more than most and it’s due to the influx of people taking out yearly memberships, only to unfortunately lose the bug. Swimming is different, though. It requires no expense, is outside, no one is staring you down and, here in the UAE, you can benefit from the great weather by doing it anytime you want.
It’s also a fantastic all-in-one exercise that works your aerobic fitness as well as building muscles from top to toe, plus it’s far more forgiving on your joints. A medium-paced half hour of freestyle swimming burns up to 255 calories.
