Swimming (including water aerobics) is a low impact sport, involving practically every muscle group in the body, that is beneficial both physically and mentally. It is an excellent fat burning cardio workout and builds muscle tissue and strength. It builds flexibility, endurance and reduces stress. It is recreational and can be enjoyed regardless of age.

According to a Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention Water Related Injuries Fact Sheet (www.cdc.gov/HomeandRecreationalSafety/Water-Safety), the fatal drowning rate of African American children ages 5 to 14 is 3.1 times that of white children in the same age range. Between 2000 and 2007, the fatal unintentional drowning rate for African Americans across all ages was 1.2 times that of whites.Frame RightFactors such as the physical environment (e.g., access to swimming pools) and a combination of social and cultural issues (e.g., valuing swimming skills and choosing recreational water-related activities) may contribute to the racial differences in drowning rates. If minorities participate less in water-related activities than whites, their drowning rates (per exposure) may be higher than currently reported.

Among racial groups, African Americans reported the most limited swimming ability.
