Keeping your body in shape all year round is a huge challenge. Lots of folks get motivated to exercise and go on a diet for a summer-ready body...but what happens when autumn and winter come around? The colder months make it harder to stick to your exercise and diet plans. Thankfully, there’s an easy solution to your fitness problems: a swim spa!
Here are a few ways that these portable spas can help you stay fit all year round:
Swim Spas are super convenient
With a swim spa, there’s no need to drive to the gym, or bother with unwieldy gym equipment. You can simply go for a swim and exercise from the convenience of your backyard...or wherever you choose to install your swim spa.
The best thing about it?
You get to exercise in private, too! You don't have to share the pool with strangers or wait your turn just to do laps. It's an easy and convenient option compared to the usual exercise regimen.
You can exercise all year round
Who wants to go out for a jog in the dead of winter? The answer: no one.
Thankfully, swim spas are designed to be used all year round, so you don’t have to worry about the consistency of your exercise regimen. Swim spas are decked with energy-efficient features and top-of-the-line insulation that allow them to stay heated even during the colder months. Just make sure to maximize the heat by using an insulated cover. Keep your swim spa humming during the winter to prevent cracks in the shell, too. Of course, don’t forget to have warm robes ready at the end of your winter swim spa session. Those winter winds can be chilly.
Swim spas give you a complete workout
Swimming is the perfect full body workout. It engages a lot of muscles - from your shoulders, arms and core to your legs and feet. Swimming increases your endurance and keeps your cardio health in check by helping your heart and lungs to pump longer and stronger.
Aside from that, swimming is a low-impact exercise. This means it doesn't stress out your weight-bearing joints, which is perfect for people suffering from arthritis, gout and even those with weight issues. You can adjust the strength of the swim spa’s current depending on your physical capability as well.
It's great for fun and relaxation, too!
Swim spas aren't only great for exercising; they can also be used for fun and relaxation. They’ve got comfy and ergonomic chairs that allow you to sit back and relax after an intense workout.
You can also enjoy a post-workout hot and cold therapy session with the adjustable temperature settings and various massage jets. Studies show that alternating hot and cold therapy is great for tired muscles and joints after strenuous activity. Aside from that, kids will love splashing around in a swim spa! This is a great way to bond with family and friends of all ages.
