Lane 6 - Women's Health posts "Best Swimming Workout: Lose Body Fat in the Pool. Swimming workouts burn fat, trim inches and help you get stronger, fitter and healthier than ever.

An easy swim burns around 500 calories an hour, while a vigorous effort can torch almost 700.

So in addition to blasting calories as you swim, you build lean muscle, which ignites your metabolism so that you burn more calories once you've showered and dried off."
