How does swimming help with fitness in Dubai?

In Dubai, many people choose to swim as a regular method of keeping fit and staying in shape.

As a health and fitness tool swimming is great for all ages and especially seniors because it is considered a low impact fitness method.

Let’s take a look at the top reasons why swimming can help you become fitter and also maintain your fitness levels.

1. Flexibility

Many men and women in Dubai have problems with flexibility. Whether this is from sitting all day at work, being overweight or simply just being more sedentary reduced flexibility can affect all parts of their lives.

This problem also increases with age which also leads to a general decline in mobility. 

There are of course many other kinds of exercise you can do for flexibility including yoga and Pilates in the UAE but swimming is considered much easier to do for many people. 

Swimming is considered a low-impact form of exercise which means it reduces stress on the joints and muscles while still providing a good flexibility workout. 

This alone makes swimming in Dubai ideal for older people and special populations, pregnant ladies and those who need rehabilitation training after illness or injury.

2. Breathing

Taking more control of your lung capacity assists with so many different things but number one for us all is burning fat. In order to do that we need oxygen so if we are increasing your Vo2 (maximal oxygen uptake) which is the amount of oxygen you can fill your lungs with then we are burning more fat all day.
Swimming is a great way to improve your breathing. 

The more you swim the more you will be increasing your lung capacity which in a way is training your lungs.

3. Cardiovascular Exercise

Cardio exercise takes on many forms. In fact most training programs in Dubai incorporate some form of cardio training because it is seen as the basis of being a fitter, healthier you. 

Cardio workouts get your heart rate which increases the blood flow to your muscles and major organs. Not only that, cardio training also gives your heart a good workout which can reduce your risk of developing many heart related illnesses and diseases. 

Remember your heart is made up of unique muscle fibers and swimming activates them very well. 

Swimming for cardio health in the UAE is good for all ages and is particularly good for seniors who might find other cardio-based exercise programs too difficult to do.

4. Gentle, effective rehabilitation exercise

If you’ve suffered an injury or are recovering from an illness in Dubai you’ll know that getting back to your normal training and exercise regime can be difficult. On the one hand you need to get back to exercise but on the other you don’t want to overdo it because this can make things worse which will ultimately make your recovery time longer. 

Swimming is great for anyone in recovery from surgery or injury. Hydrotherapy provides many benefits to people who have been advised to take a more gentle, low impact form of exercise.

Even if you just swim a couple of times a week it will help to build your strength back up, help with your endurance and of course help to strengthen muscles you might not have used for a while because of your injury.

5. Low impact training

Unlike many exercise types that are high impact swimming is the opposite and does not put too much strain on the joints, ideal for the elderly in Dubai, prenatal ladies and those with medical conditions restricting their mobility.

As a low impact sport swimming can provide just as many benefits when compared to other more rigorous exercise techniques.

Swimming in Dubai is fun, fun for all ages and what’’s more even a quick, intensive swimming session of 15-20 minutes 2 or 3 times per week will help keep everything in check.

6. Anywhere, anytime

Another great reason swimming in Dubai is good for your health and fitness is that you don’t need a gym or any equipment. You can swim in your own pool, a local community pool and even the sea. 

What’s more, when you choose to swim in the pool swimming is a completely free form of exercise.

7. Go outdoors

If you manage to get outdoors in Dubai for your daily swim it’s a great way to get your daily vitamin D.

Vitamin D is a vital cancer fighter. 15 min a day unprotected skin or coconut oil mixed with Shea butter is great way to fight it.

8. Stamina and endurance

Swimming in Dubai increases stamina and endurance so you will be able to swim faster, harder and longer – this can only ‘improve’ your overall fitness levels with no negative aspects.

Swimming is great for anyone but can also help sports people and athletes who want to work on their endurance levels.

9. Increases strength

Swimming when combined with your personal training plan is also a great way to build up strength in the arms, upper body, core and legs – adding variety to your exercise regime with swimming sessions will help you stay more focused too, making those exercise goals that much easier to achieve.

In Summary.....

Swimming as a method of staying fit and healthy in Dubai is great for all ages and all abilities. You don’t need expensive equipment or even access to a gym to enjoy swimming.
