Swimming is a great way to exercise during the winter. Of course, it is preferable to swim in an indoor pool unless you live in Florida or Arizona. You can get a good workout and enjoy yourself at the same time.

Swimming is a great way to exercise period. The problem with winter is the COLD. So unless you have access to an indoor pool I don't suggest it for most people...

Access to an indoor pool is everything when it comes to swimming during the winter. However, it's worthwhile to do if you have the opportunity and the time to do it.

True! Although we do not have winter here in our country. In theory, the cold environment during winter will make breathing harder, and when you submerge yourself in a really cold pool, your breathing would be very slow and rhythmic. And as you breathe harder, you exert much more effort than swimming during summer or spring. You would expend much more energy and burn calories fast. Not to mention it is a good cardio exercise.

When I am looking at this topic, I just feel so freezing all over:) Do you know that I am so scared of the cold weather. It is hard to imagine to even have a swimming in the frozen water in winter.
