Resort Communities with Extensive Pool Facilities
People are living longer these days, and doing your best to keep active is really important for staying your healthiest and happiest. 80% of American adults don’t get the recommended amount of weekly exercise and most sit or lay down for 10 hours a day. Who loves to go swim? Swimming is really good for you and enjoyed by young and old alike. If you want to relieve stress, back pain, improve muscular strength and lose weight, swimming is the full body exercise for you. You don’t even have to have your own pool! You can if you want of course.
Why Live in a Community with a Pool?
Swimming also keeps your body flexible and reduces inflammation- it is the perfect work out for people getting up there in age. Hip replacements are becoming more and more common even in people less than 55 years of age and pools are highly recommended for surgery aftercare. Find a retirement home in a 55+ community where you can get all the health benefits from a pool and start feeling better than you have in a long time!
