WHY JOIN POWERPOINTS?
Looking for a great club to improve your swimming while having fun? Powerpoints is just for you!
THE BENEFITS OF SWIMMING
According to a survey on Australians and sport, 34% of the population personally participate in the sport of swimming, making it the most participated in sport in Australia.
Swimming regularly improves your circulation, respiratory capacity, flexibility, muscle tone, posture and general physical appearance. It lowers your blood pressure, reduces stress and helps to reduce the likelihood of coronary artery disease and stroke.
Your body is supported by water, which means you put less stress on your joints and bones than running or other strenuous forms of exercise. Therefore, you have less risk of injury.
Regular swimming may also reduce your appetite, burn up energy and help you lose weight. The psychological benefits flow from the physical ones. You feel positive about your health and appearance. You feel fit, alert, refreshed and relaxed....and you can justify eating the things you love!
