Swimming is one of the few ways of getting exercise that improves your total fitness because it can boost strength, stamina and flexibility all at the same time. Swimming calls more muscles into play with exact coordination than most other sports, and its high repetition of movement makes it extremely beneficial to the cardio- vascular system. It has all the cardiovascular benefits of running, but with some of the strength-building effects of weight training and some of the flexibility-promoting effects of dance classes. Swimming uses all the major muscle groups, and is an aerobic exercise that helps keep your heart and lungs healthy. Swimming also helps to keep your joints flexible, especially in the neck, shoulders and hips as your limbs and body move through the water. The private swim lesson program at Ames Racquet & Fitness Center teaches the confidence that kids and adults need to be successful in the water. Private swim lessons are offered to members ages preschool - adult and are set up to meet your specific goals.
