Swim to Slim

Take advantage of the warm weather and hit the pool to torch calories this summer!

Although it may not be as easy as lacing up your running shoes for a quick jog, the

payoff is totally worth the extra effort. There is hardly another workout that burns as many calories, firms the entire body, and provides the low-impact exercise that swimming offers.

Water is nearly 800 times denser than air, allowing the resistance to play a key role in sculpting a sexy physique. Swimming provides a mini workout for every muscle group in your body including your abs, glutes, and shoulders.

An added bonus: with your muscle mass increase, your metabolism spikes and continues to burn calories even after you dry off.
