Top 3 ways swimming helps you lose weight

Updated: May 15, 2019



1. Because swimming is low impact, you’ll be able to move faster and longer, thus helping burn more calories overall, which leads to faster weight loss.


2. Swimming burns on average 300 calories for 30 minutes, which is similar to running. Try the butterfly which is the highest calorie burning stroke, or freestyle stroke which comes in second highest in calorie burning.  


3. Start swimming for 30 minutes, building up to 45-60 minutes, which will greatly increase your calorie burn and help you lose weight faster. Add intervals to your swim session, doing 1 sprint lap at full speed, then recovering at half the speed. Repeat the sprint intervals for 6 laps total in between your normal swim routine.
