If you are feeling a little jittery about continuing your swimming fitness routines throughout the colder Winter months, don’t be intimidated by the cooler water. As much as you are accustomed to swimming on a nice hot day, swimming during the cooler Winter months actually has a lot of health benefits to your body.

The wonderful benefits of swimming in your cooler pool during the Winter include:

  • Swimming in cool water boosts your immune system
  • Jumping into cold water boosts your body’s natural endorphins
  • Swimming in cold water boosts your circulation, which flushes impurities out of your system
  • Burns more calories than swimming in warm water.
  • Swimming in cold water reduces stress and improves the quality of your life

Not only is it healthy to maintain a Winter fitness regime, but it feels good too! With all the extra holiday cookies and homemade pies, there is no doubt that we typically consume extra calories during the holiday season. One way to compensate for that is to maintain a healthy exercise plan. Don’t wait to make a New Year’s resolution. Incorporate a healthy lifestyle year-round by using your California Pools swimming pool to improve the quality of your health and happiness!
