Swimming is a great way to relax and give your body a full workout at the same time. Regular swimming builds endurance, muscle strength and keeps your heart healthy. It is also fantastic for toning the upper arms, shoulders and legs. As swimming causes very little joint strain it is an ideal activity for adults with arthritis.

There are public swimming pools in every part of Northern Ireland, and classes for beginners are taking place all the time. Take the plunge and get wet to get active!

Contact your local council to find out about public swimming pools in your area.
