comment Why swim fully clothed?
About @Double AA’s first comment: see O.Ch. MB 301 (16) [62] at the end where he quotes O Ch 2 (2) that even on a weekday, midas tzenius means that one should not go barefoot.

comment Jewish approach to exercise and incorporating it into our daily lives
Ohr Someyach quotes "If you listen to the word of Hashem your G-d and do what is just in His eyes, give ear to His commandments and observe all His decrees, then the diseases that I placed upon Egypt, I will not bring upon you, for I am G-d your healer" (Exodus 15:26), and understands it (more than?) literally; i.e. keep the mitzvos and you will be healthy - even without exercise!
