Since the Olympics sport has become increasingly popular, in particular those that we have done well in. With several medals in swimming, the UK has embraced swimming even more than before, as a low impact good overall form of exercise that is easy to carry out as long as you know how to swim and are able to get to a pool. Swimming also requires only a few pieces of equipment such as swimming costumes or shorts, swimming goggles, nose or ear plugs, armbands for kids etc. It is important to people to buy good quality swimming supplies in order to swim to the best of their ability and safely.
There are many places to buy swimming supplies, both online and in a shop. Often they are sold in sports shops but also general shops.

This can include specialist sports suppliers or leisure centres with swimming pools.

Swimming is a great form of cardio vascular exercise. It is also a form of exercise that is low impact, and doesn’t have the potential to damage joints and muscles in the same way as other forms of exercise such as running, jogging and cycling. It also requires next to no specialist exercise equipment, making it a less expensive form of exercise; all you need is a pool to visit and a few bits and pieces, the most important of course being something to wear when swimming! There is a wide selection of different swimwear available for different genders and whilst some are for more light hearted pursuits such as sun bathing and going to the beach, if you are looking for a costume to exercise in it is more important for the costume to be comfortable.
Other swimming products you might need includes swimming hats, nose plugs and swimming goggles as well as general leisure products such as towels of course. Swimming hats are worn by both men and women at various levels of swimming ability. Many with longer hair find it more comfortable to have hair away from their face and find that a swimming hat does the job better than just a hair tie. They come in a variety of sizes and styles and there are plenty to choose from.
Nose plugs are for controlling breathing and stopping breathing water in through your nose. Some people find them useful and they are readily available at places that stock good quality swimming products. When it comes to swimming goggles it is very important to look at a decent fit. The whole point of swimming goggle is to be able to see better under water or when swimming, or protect your eyes from the swimming pool water for if you have a chlorine allergy. If they don’t fit they won’t keep the water out, so if the strap isn’t tight enough you should either try different goggles or get one with an adjustable strap. Children should definitely get specialist ones designed for children as they will fit more closely and be more comfortable.

There are a number of advantages to swimming. It’s a great overall method of exercise; using all the muscles of the body without the high impact other aerobic exercise methods can have. Jogging or running can put pressure on the knees, as can cycling. Swimming is very low impact, with your weight supported by the water. It is a useful safety measure to know how to swim in case of accident involving water, at the seaside for example. It’s also good for kids and a fun and healthy activity for the whole family. Many people enjoy swimming so much that they make it a regular part of their routine either for fun or exercise. It is when there is a more prolonged exposure to water in pools that additional swimming gear such as swim goggles can be a good idea.
The main reasons for wearing swimming goggles during swimming is to reduce or prevent eye irritation. The chlorine in the water can make your eyes red and sore, and goggles prevent this. Another advantage is to improve vision through the water to prevent bumping into walls, edges or other swimmers. There can also be medical reasons for wearing swimming goggles such as eye conditions, and this is well recognised and supported by the ASA. Those that usually use glasses can also use prescription goggles to enable them to see as clearly as they would with their glasses on.
It is important to choose the right swimming goggles to ensure that they carry out all or any of these functions. Badly fitted goggles will not keep water out and be rendered useless. This is why it is important to choose the right size for your head. This is especially relevant to younger swimmers, who should make sure that they have goggles especially for children to ensure a tight fit.
It is easy to pick a pair of goggles on how they look, but it is more important to get a pair that serves the purpose you need them for. If you are protecting your eyes, a tight fit is the most important. If it’s for visibility it is better to choose a clear pair not coloured.
Goggles can be an important piece of swimming equipment, so choosing the right pair for you is the most important thing, as your goggles can be as individual as you are.
