well swimming is a great all round exercise it tones up definately and helps get your heart rate going and breath better it exercises all your muscles and somebody who exercises a lot will look fitter and more toned than others i like swimming in the open water more than pools but some pools i visited in europe are outdoor and fab to go to swimming in the sea is even better as you can swim against the waves and it needs more energy yes i won a beach babe comp and i go swimming a lot and the guys loved it....

Oh it is best sport I think as it is do not make you have much sweat( or you can say you can not feel the sweat). And then it is best choose in the summer,you need not worry about the hot sun and you skin turn to the black. Most my friends choose swimming to reduce weight.If I overweight and need to keep health I will choose swimming to.

I think any exercise will help. Swimming is better for the joints - there's no strain on the joints coz it's low impact. (not the muscles)! It's used a lot for rehabilitation but yeah i guess it could work if you want to lose weight but make sure you do it a lot & on a regular basis. Any exercise only works if it's done regularly & for a decent amount of time each day. Maybe you could try half an hour of swimming every other day or something & when your body gets used to that, you could do it every day. It's a lot of fun too so i guess you could extend it & do it for longer than half an hour!
