Water sports

corsi-nuoto-adulti

We have now reached the height of summer. Temperatures are beginning to rise relentlessly and the heat is beginning to take its toll, especially on those who practice sports. Running, going to the gym, playing tennis, or playing any other sport at this time of year has become increasingly difficult and tiring due to the high temperatures that make any movement of our bodies even more tiring, as well as increasing dehydration and exhaustion. What, then, is the remedy for continuing a sporting activity while not being oppressed by the summer heat ? The answer is simple but as trivial as ever: water sports!

The allure of water

Water is one of the elements that has always fascinated man, who has always tried to master and control it, learning to swim from an early age (water births are always common) or plying the widest oceans aboard hundreds of types of vessels. Whether it is a small pool, or the vast expanses of the sea, water has always attracted humans, whether it is taking a relaxing swim on the surface, or descending into the darkest depths of the ocean floor, equipped with an oxygen tank and wetsuit. Soon, therefore, man thought of merging two of the key components of his existence and well-being: sports and water.

The benefits of water sports

The benefits of exercising in water are many. In water sports all muscles (some to a greater extent, others to a lesser extent) are in action. The heart and lungs are kept fit and circulation is stimulated. All water sports (swimming, water polo, diving, hidrobike…) also do not affect the joints in a harmful way but, on the contrary, people who suffer from arthritis can benefit significantly from exercise done in the water. In addition to being good for all muscles and joints, water sports are also very important for the well-being of the mind. How? Swimming, for example, can improve the mood of both women and men. In addition, for individuals with fibromyalgia, water sports can help to decrease anxiety and depression, even more effectively when done in warm water.

Water exercise is also healthy for pregnant women, both for the physical well-being of the mother and the baby. Finally, even for parents of children with developmental disabilities, water activities are highly recommended to strengthen family bonds.
