Swimming is a childhood memory most people have in common. Memories of friends and family that gathered around taking dips when the heat of the summer became too much. But why do we swim less as adults?
It is not only healthy, but it is still fun. That inner child is still there. Taking a day or two out of your week to visit the local pool is a break from the stresses of life. It is a church of sorts that you can commune with other swimmers. Or a community if you prefer, that enjoy the sport and wish to excel. Others may only want to be part of a community while keeping their fitness level well into adulthood.

- An important, often-overlooked, reason to swim several days a week is that it is very relaxing.
