    Whether you're new to the pool or can swim like a fish, there's no arguing that aquatics takes everyone back to their element. If you've been considering getting back into the pool, here are some of our most frequently asked questions.

    How large is the pool?

    Our Bethesda gym offers four 25-yard lanes ranging from three-and-a-half to five-feet deep.

    Are there any restrictions on aquatic exercise?

    It's always vital to visit your physician for advice before taking part in any exercise. However, swimming can be a great aid in managing existing conditions like blood pressure and arthritis.

    What are some of the benefits of water-based exercise? 

    Aquatics are a fantastic way to get fit. They can benefit your heart, muscles and bones as well as exerting gentle resistance that aids balance and coordination. You get all of these great benefits while the water keeps your body cool!

    I'm currently pregnant. Am I able to join in?

    Water-based activities can help deal with the demands of pregnancy. Not only does swimming reduce stress, it can directly strengthen abdominal and shoulder muscles which relieves the strain of carrying a baby.

    Is an instructor really necessary?

    An instructor is an invaluable aid in safe and productive exercise. If you're new to the water or have been away for a while, an instructor's expertise is key in easing you in and familiarizing you with the element. If you're confident in the water, there's always room to improve your technique or even set your sights on competitive swimming, both of which an instructor will helpful for.

    Does swimming really burn a lot of calories?

    More than cycling, walking or running, due to the all-over body demands created by the water. The great fat-burning results of aquatics are balanced out by the low levels of impact on the muscles, joints and bones. So basically, you're getting the most out of exercise while putting your body through the least stress.
