Reserve Lap Swimming

Lap Swimming:

Swimming is a great all-in-one fitness package, working most muscles of the body with each stroke.  When strokes are performed correctly the muscles lengthen and increase in flexibility.  Repetition of strokes improves muscle endurance, and because water creates more resistance against the body than air does the muscles are strengthened and toned.  Swimming also greatly enhances core strength, which is vital in overall health, stability and balance.
