The benefits of Cold Water Swimming
Cold water helps to boost the white blood cell count because the body is forced to react to changing conditions. Over time, your body becomes better at activating its defences.
Reduces Stress & Anxiety
Cold water swimming activates endorphins. This chemical is what the brain produces to make us feel good during activities. Cold water swimmers become calmer and more relaxed.
The effect of cold water stimulates our parasympathetic nervous system, which helps our body rest and repair - and promotes a feeling of calm to help us sleep
We are proud to be able to offer early morning and evening, during the summer, open water swimming sessions in beautifully clear water on the outskirts of London.
We pride ourselves on our friendly and approachable atmosphere and welcome all levels of swimmers. Our priority is your safety and enjoyment of our lake, and ask you to please follow all safety protocols. We are a NOWCA-affiliated lake, but nowca membership is not required to swim at our lake, and invite everyone to join us.
