Sometime this summer, almost everyone in this community will be in or near the water, and most people will have a safe and healthy time.
Swimming and other water-related activities are excellent ways to get the physical activity needed for a healthy life. Just two and a half hours of swimming or water aerobics a week can provide basic fitness. Water-based physical activity also improves adults’ ability to carry out everyday activities.
