Model Answer:
Swimming is good exercise and essential for keeping good health. So, I regularly swim at a local swimming club here in my city. The swimming club is not far away from my home. For this topic, I am going to talk about this place, which is also my favourite place to swim, where I often go swimming.

The club has three outdoor and two indoor swimming pools which are accessible only by its members. It is located around 400 metres north of my residence. I can walk this distance and I often walk there in the early morning to swim for around 30-40 minutes. Conveniently located in our area, it has more than 150 members.

I use this swimming complex almost every single day- rain or shine, I go there to swim and get ready for the rest of the day's challenges and tasks. I have made it a daily routine to swim there for at least half an hour. Sometimes on the weekends, I swim for more than an hour.

I have been a member of this swimming club for more than three years now, and when I began, I hardly knew anyone. A year later, a couple of my neighbours and friends joined there. I have made acquaintances with some members also. So I pretty much meet someone I know every day who happens to swim there as well.

I can hardly manage time for different physical activities due to my job and work. We all know that health is wealth but knowing it alone would not take us anywhere if we do not abide by the rules of a healthy lifestyle. So, I thought to join this swimming club about three years ago, and it was a great decision - I believe. This is my favourite location for swimming because the swimming pools that the club has are well-maintained and give a great experience to its members. The administration makes sure every single hygiene and safety rule is strictly followed. So I can swim there without worrying much. Moreover, having this swimming complex nearby has helped me do some exercise every day and remain fit.
