Do you workout and train in the gym to help improve your shooting technique?

Growing up I was a competitive swimmer and one of the things taught is how to have more control over your heart rate and how to slow it down with breathing exercises. This has helped me not only in the water when swimming laps or lifting weights at the gym but also at the range. I love being in the gym almost as much as I love being at the range. I have noticed that while I am doing more of my cardio and getting fitter that my shooting has improved. My follow up shots at distance are quicker and more accurate, since my heart rate is slowed and my breathing is less. This has also helped me have better focus when I am moving and shooting.
