Looking to Get Or Stay In Shape? You Should Try Swimming

I used to think that the only way to lose weight and get in shape was to go to the gym. So I kept trying to like going to the gym, but it never lasted. After a few weeks to a few months, I would get demotivated and just stop going. Needless to say, I wasn’t getting a lot of results. And that didn’t motivate either.

When I discovered that there are other ways to workout, my life started to change. It took some experimenting; I tried cycling running and playing soccer. But trying out these different activities was all worth it because I discovered something that works for me.

The first few months of swimming (I never did it before in my life) it was super tough. I would swallow half the pool during a one hour lesson, but for some reason, I was even more motivated when I came back. Once I was able to swim without drowning, it became fun.

Now I am doing 2-3 sessions per week, and my body has changed a lot. Not only that, I felt more alert and relaxed at the same time. If this story motivates you to try or go back to swimming, take a look at our article on why and how to swim yourself in shape.

Take care, and hope to see you in the pool soon.
