For a long time I do not have any kind of exercise. Recently i started for swimming although I don't really can swim. I can only swim with freestyle for a distance of 5-10 meters.

Can i considered this type of swimming for one hour per session for 3 times in a week as part of my regular exercise? Is there any other exercise I should considered to keep my body healthy? Is there any exercise which is better than swimming?

I hope you can answer my questions.

Thanks for your answer. What type of information about myself do you would like to know? I will provide some basic information about myself. My age is 30+ & i'm not a active person in any sports. I have been more on desktop jobs for many years & don't really choosing in terms of food.

I would just eat what i feel taste good for myself. I understand in future when our ages are increasing we need to take care our health more carefully. That's why i have started to swim recently.

Is there any other things about myself you would like to know? Please let me know.

Welcome, Sitra! I agree with Cheryl. From what I have heard, swimming is great exercise. It's a great overall work out.

Weights are also good to add to your routine--to keep you toned and your metabolism high.

Good luck!
