Synchronised swimming is a hybrid form of swimming , dance and gymnastics, consisting of swimmers performing a synchronised routine of elaborate moves in water, accompanied by music.
The sport used to be know as ‘water ballet’, and made popular by the late Esther Williams in the 1940’s and 50’s. It is incredibly strenuous and skilful but is also an extremely good and fun way of keeping fit using a multitude of muscles whilst being supported in water; therefore having little to no Impact on the body, this in turn makes it an ideal hobby for those who find other forms of exercise difficult.
These are huge as it will:
-Tone your legs
-Improve upper body strength
-Help boost cardiovascular system
-Improve balance and posture
-Help develop agility and flexibility
