    I'm new here, but was wondering if there are any swimmers out there? I've been doing deep water exercise class and then swimming breastroke laps for 30 minutes following. I love it but haven't seen much weight loss.

    Hiya
    I'm a swimmer too, well just started again after many years....I used to be a strong swimmer, I swam for my county and passed all my life guard qualifications too but after many years off I am just slowly getting back into it, you will eventually start to feel more toned and fitter as time goes on, stick at it like I am going to and then feel and see the benefits x

    I swim about twice a week. I don't notice significant or speedy weightloss but it's great for toning, especially arms which I find a bit tricky to work on - I'm not really a 'doing weights' sort of girl!
    I'm also pleasantly surprised by how much fitter I am, seemingly without the need to getting sweaty and red in the face! Good luck with your swimming plan - I've not heard of 'deep water exercise class' but it sounds like fun! :)

    I'm a swimmer too. When I can, I go to the rise and shine slot at our pool and do 4km. I love swimming. Not noticed any extra loss for it but I do notice body changes

    I used to love swimming, just at the moment I am so conscious about how I look I dont think I could bear a swimming costume just yet!

    Hi folks,

    I've recently got back in the pool too.
    Used to be a decent swimmer, but was def a bit rusty after years on dry land!!

    My local pool is a 25m pool, When I started with 40 lengths (1 km)

    I'm now trying for 50 lengths in a session.

    Trying to get down a bit more regularly too, a monthly pass works out really cheap if you use it a lot.

    I love swimming but I can't get to the pool alone (visually impaired) and Its really frustrating me that its not always convenient for somebody to come with me! I feel like I've had a great workout after a good swim and I know it will be beneficial if i could get to the pool. Also my "swim buddy" can't afford to go as often as I'd like so i'm kind of stuck on dry land!! dammit!
