Due to constant sedentary work, travelling, outside food lately had been putting on weight. My clothes where becoming small in size. This was the time when I decided to start working out. Somehow, I hated gym workout or any classes. So, I choose my favorite outdoor activity as a workout regime. Swimming is best to shred unwanted weight.
