Swimming at Saxon Pool & Leisure Centre

Lifestyles swimming pools are designed to ensure that whatever your aim is: improving your health, your swimming technique, or just having fun time with the family, at Saxon Pool & Leisure Centre you can do this in a safe, enjoyable and friendly environment.

Swimming offers many health and fitness benefits as 30 minutes of steady paced lane swimming burns over 200 calories – well over 400 in an hour. As the water takes your weight, swimming can be great for those who want low impact exercise such as pregnant women, those who have mobility problems, or who want to protect their joints. Swimming is also great for your heart and your lungs. Because you are using your whole body your heart has to pump blood hard to your arms and legs, helping circulation too.
