I have received requests from women for specific swimming sessions at North Woodside Pool. Sessions have now been established on Tuesday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Details are provided on the leaflet that I picked up yesterday.
Swimming is beneficial as it strengthens a women's heart and can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Thus it is able to reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease. In addition, women can be more susceptible to osteoperosis than men. Swimming provides a low impact workout for women who have weaker bones and joints.
There is a diverse range of women living in the Woodside area and each having different needs and pressures shaping their lives. The women only swimming sessions aim to create an opportunity for involvement in an active lifestyle. There are swimming lessons on offer to help build the confidence of women using the pool.
