We’re all aware of how good swimming can be for us, especially as we age. Multiple studies have proven that this low impact sport is extremely beneficial for senior citizens.
However, getting the most out of swimming can be tricky especially if you are using the wrong technique. That’s why Cook and Phillip offers a comprehensive adult Swim School that can teach you the basics.
Here are our top reasons why you should head to Cook and Phillip for a lesson now.
Decreased bone density is a fact of ageing but swimming is proven to improve bone health. Swimming is a non-weight-bearing exercise as the buoyancy of the water counteracts the effects of gravity. Swimming will improve your cardiovascular fitness and muscle strength and will reduce your risk of developing osteoporosis without putting unnecessary strain on your joints.
Working out in water will boost blood circulation and lower your blood pressure, two very important elements of cardio health. Swimming might just be what the doctor ordered!
Physical activity is important for anyone but it becomes increasingly important as you age. Water aerobics or swimming laps is a great tool for managing weight, chronic pain or even diabetes.
Studies have repeatedly demonstrated the benefits regular exercise can have on maintaining healthy brain function. Forget the Sudoku and come down to Cook and Phillip!

If you can’t remember the last time you touched your toes maybe it’s time to give swimming a go. Because your entire body gets in on the act of swimming, your neck, shoulders, arms, hips and legs all benefit and you’ll soon notice the change in your flexibility.
At any age, stress is dangerous and often difficult to manage. However, many studies have found that swimming is a way to de-stress both physically and mentally. You will ease both physical and mental tension as you move through the soothing water.
Many people who haven’t tried swimming before are reluctant to get going but once you dive into it you’ll soon be wishing you started much earlier.
