But do you know that swimming has other benefits? Let’s go through one by one of its advantages:

1) Safety

  • We have discussed this earlier.
  • It is the most common reason if we were asked why we learn how to swim.

2) Health

  • Swimming is an exercise. It is a sport.
  • This activity engages a lot of muscle groups. Therefore, it is an incredible body workout.
  • It burns calories. Thus, it is good for people to lose weight.

3) Fun

  • Of course, the fun!
  • It would not be fun if you just sit there in the corner, while your friends are enjoying the cool pool. 
  • Learn to swim, and go on and have fun!
