Does swimming and mountain climbing in contrary with each other?

Does swimming and mountain climbind in contrary with each other? i do both and even some workouts on my stomach to reduce its fat but the lifeguard said you can't make progress in your swimming this way. those sports made youre body hard while swim needs a soft body. i want to know how true is it? and Shoud I stop these?
he said my muscles aren't relaxed in water (swim likes a robot) .or maybe the problem is something else?

I've never heard any reason why you can't do both these sports in harmony.

You actually have to be extremely strong, supple and agile to be good at rock climbing so there is no reason why your body should 'become hard'.

Keep doing both sports and enjoy yourself!
