Swimming

Swimming is a relaxing and healthy activity. Studies show that swimming is an excellent activity for children development, with a lot of health benefits. For children, it’s a fun form of exercise that should be introduced at an early age. It can provide children with a range of exercises from a small amount of activity and movement to an aerobic workout. The fun of playing around in the water allows children to exercise without even knowing it. It can provide stretching and toning exercises, or a full workout than can strengthen the lungs and the heart. It is also good as an individual or as a team sport. Research has shown that the stimulating effect of child-paced swimming lessons has the potential to increase intelligence, concentration, alertness, and perceptual abilities.
