Swimming and Burning Calories
Depending how fast you swim, you'll burn between 250 and 350 calories* per 30 minutes.
Swimming and Fitness
Swimming is great for building general fitness levels. It provides excellent cardiovascular fitness benefits. It also builds lean muscles and improves muscle strength and lung capacity. Since swimming involves your whole body, you burn off more calories than running or jogging.
Swimming and Weight Loss
In addition to burning more calories, swimming is also a non-weight-bearing exercise, which means it's a good option for overweight people. Swimming offers a high-impact aerobic workout without stressing muscles and joints.
