Hi, my name is Barbara. We are here at the Village on Main in Utah. And I'm going to be your swimming expert for today. Today we are going to talk about how you can lose weight with swimming. To do this you will need a swimming pool, a bathing suit, a swimming cap, and some goggles. Swimming is one of the best workouts for a cardio exercise. It's so great because you can move every muscle in your body and really keep your heart rate up for the entire time. The best way to lose weight is to keep your heart rate between 70 and 95 percent of your max heart rate. This is different for every age group. And you can look that up on the internet to find out what heart rate is best for you. It's important to stay consistent and try to record what you do to help you stay motivated. There are lots of great swim workouts online that you can find and follow. As you improve you can look for more difficult workouts. Also your body might get used to swimming. And the more that your body is used to swimming the more you'll need to swim. So try not to reach a plateau and always stick with the same workouts because you won't see the same results as you improve. Remember that losing weight is not only about exercise. You need to be able to eat less calories then you expend. As long as you are eating less calories then you burn you will always be able to lose weight. And that's how you can lose weight with swimming.
