No matter your age or fitness level, a swim spa will give you a complete, full-body aquatic workout. Gone are the notions that exercising in water is only for the elderly! Discard the idea that aqua fitness is nothing more than light cardio. A swim spa has a high-powered, adjustable jet system to provide variable resistance. When you aren’t swimming against the current, the swim spa offers you the perfect depth for performing a variety of water exercises. Larger than a hot tub, yet smaller than s swimming pool, a swim spa is the perfect multi-purpose system. You can have an effective workout and then use those same jets to relax your tired muscles. So, if you are looking to get in great shape, you can certainly meet your 2021 fitness goals with a swim spa.
What are the benefits?
Using a swim spa offers a wonderful array of benefits that include:
- Hydro-Therapeutic Exercise: Receive improved quality of life, especially for those with conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis.
- Low-Impact Exercise: Aquatic exercise offers a low risk of injury and is easy on joints. Because the effects of gravity are lessened, flexibility is also improved over time.
- Increased Calorie Burn: A swim spa provides added natural resistance that makes you actually work harder and burn more calories.
It’s time to start meeting those fitness goals by using a swim spa to become a healthier you! Here are some basic steps to help you begin. As always, we do recommend that you consult a physician before beginning any new exercise regimen.
Step 1: Invest In The Right Accessories
Get the most out of your swim spa by purchasing optional accessories. An attachable rowing kit and resistance training accessories are great options. Water and ankle weights also provide additional toning for arms, legs, and core. And don’t forget to add an awesome outdoor stereo system to motivate you with your favorite tunes!
Step 2: Get Your Body Moving
As with any other exercise, you are going to want to do a gentle warm-up such as walking or marching in place. Once you’ve warmed up, you’ll want to go into some dynamic stretches to keep you limber and your body from injury.
Step 3: Your Exercise Regimen
The great thing about using a swim spa is that your exercise routine is completely up to you! You’ll want to consider your personal goals and current health when establishing a routine. You can choose to target one main area of the body each day or perform more of a circuit style and include all areas of the body. Depending on your fitness level and goals, you may want to work out as little as a couple of times to as much as four or five times a week.
Step 4: Cool Down
Once you finish your routine, you always want to cool down. Take time to stretch various areas of your body and allow yourself to float and move at a slow pace in the water. Doing so will help you avoid stiff, sore muscles later on.
Step 5: Congratulate Yourself
You can also use the jetted recovery coves to massage away stress and tension. The great thing about a swim spa is you can stay right where you are after your workout. Reward yourself with a relaxing, jet-pulsing soak to reduce inflammation and speed up muscle recovery.
