When you enter a swimming pool, your body weight is almost completely displaced, and you become essentially weightless. This means that swimming has very low impact on your joints. With a low impact level being placed on your joints, your risk for injury is quite low. This is a great pro for anyone suffering from joint pain or anyone who is at high risk for injury with other forms of exercise.
Water also provides a high level of resistance in terms of exercise. This allows you to strengthen your muscles while you are participating in a cardiovascular workout. While providing a good cardiovascular workout, swimming laps can build your endurance. Lastly, exercising in swimming pools engages all of your large muscle groups, which makes it a true whole-body workout.
