Swimming is great cardio but as said before, swimmers tend to have more body fat than many other athletes. In high school a lot of my friends did swimming/water polo and their appearances varied a lot. Not a ton of six packs but high school students are often naturally lean, plus water polo people often lift a lot of weights.

Swimming is fantastic for lung capacity and general toning, and yes it counts as cardio. No impact and low stress on joints makes it a good activity to combine with jogging. Plus, as others have said it can help with soreness and so on.

Swimming is a technique-oriented sport, that's why it's so difficult for many people. You simply can't power your way into the sport, unlike running or cycling, maybe.

a few quick thoughts.

it is cardio, its a workout if done right and if you build up properly.

form is very important, if you dont have the right form you will get frustrated and work harder then you need to.

it is one of the greatest tools to increase your lung capacity and if done regularly you can improve your runs by swimming.

diet is a greater factor with body fat and getting cut then certain types of cardio.
