Your Health: Another Great Reason to Get a Pool!

From family fun to outdoor entertaining, there are a lot of great reasons to get a pool. But while we’re thinking about pool parties and increased home value, we often forget one of the best reasons to invest in a new swimming pool: Health.

Here are just a few ways that swimming in your home pool can increase your health:

  • Joint health – Suffering from arthritis, stiff muscles or sore joints? Swimming allows you to get the aerobic exercise you need without putting stress on sensitive bones and joints. [source: CDC]
  • Strength – Because water provides resistance as we swim, swimming is an excellent way to improve strength and muscle tone. [source: Prevention Magazine]
  • Heart health – As an aerobic exercise, swimming helps us strengthen our hearts, reduce cardiovascular risks and maintain a healthy weight. [source: MayoClinic]
  • Stress relief – Swimming, like other aerobic exercises, helps to balance mood by releasing endorphins and stress-relieving hormones. [source: PsychCentral]

We may be a little biased, but at Rising Sun Pools, we believe that swimming is the best way to exercise! Not only is swimming an excellent calorie burner (and also easy on our joints!) — it’s a fun way to get active, making workouts something the whole family can look forward to.

Are you ready for family fun that can help to both improve health and reduce stress? It’s time to get your very own Rising Sun Pool!
