Swimming is by far one of the best physical activities out there. Just a good 30 minutes of swimming daily can build up your cardiovascular fitness and endurance, tone up your muscles and keep you generally happy and healthy. Minus the impact stress of activities such as jumping rope, tennis, badminton, step aerobic classes and more, of course.
It is the best way to keep impact-related injuries out of your life, protect your knees and joints and still be as fit as India’s Iron Man Milind Soman, who by the way, was a national swimming champion at just the age of 9!
Given the amazing physiological and psychological benefits of swimming, it is given that we’d all like to learn swimming in Hyderabad and try to incorporate swimming for fitness into our daily lives, within budget and time constraints of course. And there are three tricks to this –
- Find a swimming pool near you, that is close to your home or place of work. This way, you do not have to worry about transport, traffic and commute time. Make it as easy as possible for yourself to squeeze in that half an hour daily, right before or after work, or even during lunch hour. The easier you make it for yourself, the higher your compliance will be. Swimming post school or work is also a great way to de-stress and unwind.
- Get talking with your close friends and form a group of sorts. Choose between indoor and outdoor swimming pools, negotiate as a group and get yourself some discounts. Not only does this work out cheaper, but it also improves your compliance as friends call each other, push each other and keep each other accountable.

- Internalize the reasons why swimming is the way forward for you. Only when you convince yourself will you fall in love with it. Only when you love it will you look forward to it every single day. So much so, that even missing a single day will feel unacceptable. Make time for your health. Doctors and medicines are rarely preventive and proactive!
