Why is it worth learning how to swim?

Every human being is born with a natural ability to swim, but this innate talent will disappear if the reflex is not practised in early childhood. Then child has to once again learn how to behave in a water environment, but the effort put into learning how to swim is worth mastering this art.

Swimming is the most optimal form of physical activity dedicated to representatives of all age groups, especially children and adolescents. Swimming as a physical activity is included in the same aerobic training group as running or cycling. During such a physical activity, oxygen is supplied to the muscles in the amounts necessary to burn energy stocks. Thanks to it, this kind of sport is extremely effective with fighting obesity. Swimming is a general-purpose exercise, as all the muscle groups are active during swimming. In addition, it has a particularly positive effect on the overall psychophysical development of children.
