Health & Fitness – Swimming

Swimming is a great way for families to get moving and have fun together and is a safe and effective form of exercise. Teaching children to swim at an early age will avoid a fear of water later in life; it’s an amazing skill and can preserve life. With the weather becoming more conducive to outdoor activities, plan a swimming-related activity at Al Mouj Muscat this weekend!
