Reactivate Bucks has joined forces with the ASA to launch their new national marketing campaign called the ‘Big Splash’. The campaign is to inspire new swimmers into the pool but also to help those who already swim, to have more fun, more often! Whether you are a serious swimmer or just enjoy splashing around, swimming is one of the most popular activities in the UK.
There are so many benefits to taking part in swimming activities, different strokes challenge different muscles within the body to give you a great full body work out and swimming supports up to 90% of the body’s weight in the water, meaning that those with disabilities, injuries or illnesses such as arthritis can still take part in physical activity in a comfortable and safe environment.
The Big Splash is the world's biggest celebration of swimming taking place over the next 10 months. Some of your favourite BBC faces will be taking part, so keep an eye out on TV, radio and online.
There are lots of sessions for you to attend in Buckinghamshire including the launch of Swimfit powered by British Gas.. Developed by swimming experts at the ASA, Swimfit, is your FREE online and pool-side club that provides you with a gym style work-out programme for the pool. British Gas Swimfit engages you in swimming based on your motivation for working-out, whether you are seeking to maintain your health, shape up and tone your body, reach your peak fitness level or compete at swimming. There are a number of swimfit sessions taking place – please click the link at the bottom of the page to find one near you.
