Lap Swimming Year-Round

One of the number one benefits to swimming in an indoor pool in Chicago is that you don’t have to experience any interruptions to your fitness routine caused by cold weather. Chicago can have some pretty harsh winters. Heated indoor pools allow you to swim all year long, especially beneficial when the weather is too cold for outdoor activity.

Full-Body Workout

Swimming is a complete, full-body workout, making it arguably the best form of exercise. It simultaneously works your heart and lungs while strengthening many different muscle groups. Additionally, it a low impact form of exercise for those who suffer joint pain. In the short term, swimming may not burn as many calories as running. However, if you are swimming regularly and building muscle in your arms, legs, and chest, you will burn more over the long term anyways.

Block Out the Noise

Need to get away from the stressors in your life? Swimming can be somewhat meditative because when you are underwater, external sounds are muffled. Thus, you are left alone with your thoughts.
