Unlike most other Olympic sports, swimming can be pretty easy to get started with. But more than a fun activity, swimming is also one of the best low-impact, full-body workouts. Because swimming does not place stress on knee, hip, and shoulder joints, it is a great exercise activity for senior citizens and adults who are recovering from injury or surgery. Swimming is also great for your cardiovascular health.
