While building career skills and preparing for further education at a university are all important, what’s just as vital for your personal well-being is your physical fitness. That’s why here at Broward Community Schools, we provide ample opportunities for you to earn credits by participating in recreation and sports, such as lap swimming.

Benefits of Lap Swimming

If you’re looking for a great way to stay in shape and earn credits in the process, then lap swimming is a great choice for many reasons.

  • Full Body Workout: When you swim laps in the pool, you have to activate multiple muscles throughout your body, giving your upper body, core, and lower body a good workout.
  • Cardiovascular Health: Quantity comes with quality when you choose swimming as your physical activity. As you build muscle strength all over, you also build endurance.
  • Easy on Joints: Unlike other exercises, such as powerlifting or running, swimming is easy on your joints. Make it a habit to swim laps to stay fit now, and your knees and shoulders will thank you for it later.
  • Water is Therapeutic: Of course, it takes hard work to get fit by swimming laps. But during the process, you’ll also get to enjoy the therapeutic and relaxing effects of hanging out in the water.
