We all know swim is an amazing physical workout throughout the lifespan. In early years it can help promote coordination, stamina and endurance. In later years, swim can help lower the risk of early death and promote mental and physical wellbeing.
If you’ve ever had an injury, swimming is a great low-impact workout, and if you want your kids to sleep like rocks, just have them spend an hour splashing around in the water! But there is also a TON of research into benefits of swimming beyond just the physical. From the Griffith University study to the Swim England study, swim has been proven to boost social, cognitive, mental and emotional wellbeing.
