Studies show that regular physical activity can help strengthen bones, tone muscles, relieve depression and improve sleep. You should aim for 30 – 60 minutes of activity at least 5 times a week. One of the best activities is to swim laps in your pool. Swimming works your arms, legs, back and stomach muscles. Swimming is easy on your joint and when performed correctly, can improve breathing. Have fun and stay healthy! For more health tips from your Houston Pool Builder, check us out on Facebook.
