It's a low impact activity that uses your entire body against the water resistance. Swimming continuously keeps your heart rate up and builds endurance. The activity combines cardio training and muscle strengthening for a total body workout. As you are pushing yourself through the water, you are also improving balance, posture, and coordination.

Many people associate health care with high prices. However there are ways to lower your costs, like taking advantage of preventative health services. Many health plans cover the co-insurance and copayments that is associated with preventative services because it costs much less to prevent illness then to treat it.
