Perth Pool Companies Help Fight an Increasingly Sedentary Lifestyle

05 April

Automation continues to increase in every area of the industrialized world. Obesity, heart problems, some cancers, diabetes, osteoporosis, and other health issues fuelled by poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle continue to increase worldwide at an alarming rate.

The U.K. is considered to have one of the highest rates of obesity and overweight residents in Western Europe after Malta and Iceland. Moreover, India is suffering a massive obesity problem caused by its new found affluence, fast-food outlets on every corner, car ownership, and old customs that say “fat means rich”. Other countries such as the U.S., Russia, China, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, Pakistan, and Indonesia are all fighting health issues associated with lifestyle problems.

Now, these problems are beginning to hit Australia. 90% of young Australians don’t get enough exercise, and nearly 12 million adults are considered to lead a sedentary lifestyle–all this in a country with wide open spaces, fabulous recreational areas, pleasant weather conditions, and a coastline the envy of the world.

The Answer Could Be Outside Your Backdoor

Exercise is the biggest single factor that contributes to improving fitness and lifestyle. It has been proven that regular moderate exercise helps the young with school work and improves social interaction. A little exercise helps reduce stress levels, alleviates anxiety and depression, increases self-esteem, provides a feel-good factor, and boosts mental alertness. And what better way to achieve this, than in your own swimming pool?

As would be expected with its high sunshine levels, Western Australia tops the list of areas where homeowners have their own swimming pool. Nonetheless, just 18% of those around the Perth area have realized the value of this great exercise asset.

Professional swimming pool companies such as Guardian Pools specialize in the manufacture and installation of fibreglass pools in Perth and surrounding areas. Understanding your needs and requirements and any limitations with your property will ensure sound advice is provided based on years of experience to ensure your pool has everything you need, while enhancing the appeal of the surrounding garden or yard area.

Contact a professional local company that manufactures and installs fibreglass pools in Perth for expert advice and guidance. A plunge or splash pool could be all you require to take the sedentary out of your lifestyle.
